You know I LOVE a good organic + geometric mix – and this one has ALLLLLL those vibes and more!
Swallowtail Butterfly is a beautiful layering die set that will have you making all sorts of amazing butterflies from now until forever. With the various layers, you can create just about any look you can imagine! Layers of vellum make my sample about as delicate as can be!
I paired that with a beautiful geometric background featuring the Tessellation Puzzle die set. This will create all the little angled pieces that you can mix and match to create beautiful coordinating looks full of color and texture! There are three different geometric patterns to choose from in the set!

clean & simple & foiled
Nothing can beat the crispness you can achieve from a clean & simple design. I wanted to really emphasize the hot foiled letters from the new Essential Alpha Hot foil, Die & Stencil set, so it was going to be CAS all the way!
A light dusting of pink through the Bubble Wrap stencil gives the perfect background to these violet-accented silver foiled letters.
You’re going to love the foil set too because it comes as a SINGLE PLATE with MULTIPLES of the SAME LETTER! The die is also a SINGLE DIE that matches right up, along with the stencils that provide an opportunity to add a solid lower half, dots, or stripes. Stencil before you diecut and you’re golden!
Don’t forget to foil your reverse image to get double the mileage on this set. I even used alcohol ink with the stencil to add a pattern!

zero-calorie candy corn
As soon as I saw this die set, all I could think of was CANDY CORN! Now, personally, I don’t eat a ton of it, but a few pieces (maybe in a trail mix?) is OK by me. And using this layering die set called Triangle Madness made it so simple!
I used the single panel, but since the edge doesn’t cut out, you can extend the triangles as far and wide as you want to go!
I used the Must-Have Gel Pen set to add in some detail, then paired the project with an ink blended and hot foiled sentiment from the new Versatile Greetings Hot Foil/Die set. All were definitely a TREAT to work with!
