Control Freaks Dynamic Duos!

The theme this month is Dynamic Duos - using dies from TWO different die fun is that?! If you just hopped here from Debbie's blog welcome! Weren't her projects amazing? Follow the links at the end of each page to go on to the next stop on the hop. There are five of us today, so the hop won't take long. I can't wait to see the Freaks' take on this theme!

I'm gonna admit right up front that I used more than two die sets on two of my cards. I couldn't help it - I love the dies, and the cards were whispering "more." 😁

First up is a card using the Inspiring Canopy Dies, and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. So where's the third one?

The Layering Circle moon in the background! I felt the sun/moon die included with the Inspiring Canopy Dies was too small for the look I was going for. The greeting was heat embossed in white, then colored with a Stampin' Blend to make it match the So Saffron moon.

The beautiful Scalloped Contour Dies make an appearance on this card along with the Playful Alphabet Dies. And, of course, the balloon from the Hippo & Friends Dies!

I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the balloons to make them stand out a bit more. That pretty striped DSP is part of the Pattern Party Host Rewards. I didn't even notice it at first, but a dear friend gave me some samples of hers, and WOW! Colored patterns on one side, and black & white on the other.

Speaking of black & white, this is another of the Pattern Party DSP designs, and it happens to be the reverse side of the stripes above!

This card uses the Scalloped Contours again, along with the Tasteful Labels Dies.

That's all I have for now! Up next is Bree Renwick, the Craft-somnia Momma. She's going to knock your socks off, I'm sure!


  1. Great card! I love the interaction of the different patterns between the paper and dies used.


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
