Rainbow Hearts & Traditional Red

I treated myself to a new die set the other day. It's the Staggered Heart from Die-namic Dies. It's a great design that I can see quite a few different ways to play with. I began by creating a rainbow of colours by cutting thin strips of coloured card and adhering to a thin paper base. I ran this through the die and saw the result I was hoping for.

I placed it onto white card and stamped a sentiment. I didn't feel it needed anything else.

For the next card, I had intended to use the negative space left behind. However, the temptation to fill it overcame me, so I cut into some red card and adhered into the space.

One die, two cards again.

Another set of beautiful cards. I am going to have to make a shopping list of things I need from the UK and set you loose with a blank check for me.

I just love your 'simple' which always looks elegant pot and interestingly complex at the same time. My heart is with the rainbows ...

Two terrific heart cards, Paul! The rainbow card rocks and the red hearts looks great. I so regret not buying that die when I last ordered. Next time. :)

LOVE that rainbow effect, Paul - excellent idea and it worked so well. LOVE that linen effect card, too - looks really embossed. You're the king of CAS in my eyes - perfection :-D xxx
