Ink blended diecut background

I have a confession to make. I love the big background dies that I see used everywhere now. Die cutting is so much fun and there’s so much you can do with a background like this cover plate by Altenew. I just keep getting cheap and not getting them. I have another one by Winnie & Walter that is one of my favorite dies ever so I’m not sure why I keep being cheap. They are pretty pricey but so worth it. I splurged a bit and got this beauty and had a lot of fun fiddling with piecing these two cards together.

I think this white one is my favorite of the two. I used the speech bubble stamps by Winnie & Walter that I think is so fun! Black and white used together with bright colors are up in the top of the list of color combos in my book.

I will keep playing around with this die and maybe I’ll get a few more after that. Now I want to create a shaker card using this one. I have a lot of ideas. I hope you will enjoy seeing more of this die ahead.

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
