It’s Blueprints time! I absolutely love the MFT Stamps Blueprints line and each much I love participating in the challenge. This month we are going out of the box for some energy and excitement. I love squares and rectangles but the Blueprints featured today have some really fabulous and unique shapes. They are wonky or wavy, angled or curved and are a great way to add movement in a design. Adding a simple layer that is just a bit out of the ordinary can really add new life to the design.
I’ve chosen to feature Blueprints Die-namics 15 for this design and I’m loving how much it really adds to the design. It instantly makes whatever you do asymmetrical by using the large angled die. I love how it works so well in the top left corner. Our eyes read from left to right, and this die immediately gets the eye moving through your card project. I’ve layered it over a full A5 card front sized die layer that has a great stitched edge. Why would you need this die? This means you can use patterned paper for a full card front look which is always a nice and clean look. I love using white card bases and this also means I can still use the white card base but have it totally a different solid colored card front.
Lastly, the other Blueprints 15 die is a sweet little notched flag layer. It is only as large as you see here and is a fun way to add the look of an extra layer beneath WITHOUT adding in any bulk.
It’s barely fall but for some reason, some holiday stamps and dies were calling me. I’ve layered a bunch of holiday stamps together for a sweet focal point. That’s the wonderful thing about Blueprints Die-namics, they work really well with absolutely everything. And if coming up with new card designs and layouts is a challenge for you, there are great card sketches on the MFT Stamps site that go with each one of them. You can find all the supplies I used listed at the end of the post. There are so many of my faves in this design!
Quick Tip: Angle it! Placing shapes on an angle is a fun way to add visual interest to a card design.
