Sweater Vest Die Cards with Anja and Vanessa

Hello again, Anja here and today I'm sharing a summer project using the Sweater Vest Dies. Of course these dies are perfect for fall and winter or the upcoming Father's Day, but I transformed it into a summer top. Do you know these fun Hawaii shirts with colorful floral prints? I tried to create something similar in stamping a pattern with the beautiful Hawaiian Hibiscus Stamps.

I did a lot of masking and stamping for this floral pattern. First, I cut some masks out of full sticky notes using the coordinating hibiscus flower die. I adhered them to a piece of white cardstock and did some ink blending with Distress Oxide Inks (Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean) over it. It's always amazing when you peel off the masks and the crisp edges are revealed.

Next, I stamped all the layers of the hibiscus flowers (you can find the used ink colors below). I die cut the trimmings from yellow cardstock and gold heat embossed the sentiment.

Altenew Dye Inks used: Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubellite, Razzleberry, Warm Sunshine

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a sunny day!

Hello everyone! Vanessa here with a simple Father's Day card using the Sweater Vest dies. According to my husband, male card recipients prefer very simple cards. The simpler the better. I had this in mind while creating this.

I die-cut my card/the vest from black cardstock and the collar from white cardstock. After I had assembled the pieces, I die-cut the ribbed V one more time and trimmed off a short strip to create a pocket for the breast pocket handkerchief that I had trimmed from another collar piece. Now I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from Puppy Parents onto a strip of red cardstock, notched one end and adhered it.
