Adding Color using Coordinating Dies + Picket Fence Release

Hi there, crafty friends. Today’s cards show how you can add color to your images using your coordinating dies…

I love to stretch the use of my coordinating dies. They can be used for so much more than just die-cutting your stamped images. For today’s cards, I used THESE coordinating dies and cut them from THIS fun foam. I adhere them temporarily on to an acrylic block and ink them up just like any stamp. The fun foam stamps beautifully and quickly adds color to THESE birds that I stamped.

For the first card…

I stamped the birds in THIS circle frame and added a sentiment from THIS stamp set along the bottom. I used THIS die to add some stitching along the border of the panel. I wanted a rainbow background so I used THESE life changing brushes to apply ink to the card base.

For the second card…

I used my MISTI to stamp a few rows of the bird images. After I applied color with the foam die-cuts, I stamped a sentiment from THIS stamp set on one of THESE hearts. I also die-cut a larger heart from THIS vellum to go behind the smaller heart. I used the same stitched rectangle die as the first card to add a border around the panel and adhered the entire piece to a gray note card.

I hope this inspires you to die-cut your coordinating dies from fun foam and use them as stamps to add color to your stamped images.

All of the products used today are part of THIS new release from Picket Fence. I’ve linked it below as well as supplies used on today’s cards.
