Welcome back to another day of the Birch Press Design Holiday Release Blog Blitz! Today I am introducing the new Splash mandala layer dies.
I will be using Splash Layer A, Splash Layer B, Splash Layer C, the Triangle Fade craft die and the new Best Friend clear stamp set for my card.
If you remember back last week when I creted a stencil using the new Triangle Fade craft die HERE. I kept my stencil and used it again for my card today. This time I sponged Spun Sugar Distress Ink over the stencil for a pretty background for my mandala.
The last time I used the stencil I had used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink, because Distress Oxide doesn’t completely dry without heat setting, when I sponged the pink over the stencil it actually blended the inks together creating a beautiful pinky/blue colour. I love it when happy accident’s like this happen!
The Splash layers were cut with pink, aqua and light aqua cardstock and then adhered together to create a beautiful mandala. The mandala was adhered to the centre of the card over top of the soft stenciling. The hints of stenciled design through the opening of the mandala are such a lovely design element.
The sentiment “You Are Simply the Best” is from the Best Friend clear stamp set. There are so many mix and match possibilities with this set.
Now onto the giveaway details. The prize today is the Splash Layer A that was used on my project today. It’s beautiful die with lovely lines and can be used to cut, stencil or emboss with. The Blog Blitz is running from August 23rd to August 28th, so make sure you leave a here on this post and also be sure to check out all the other Blog Blitz posts, there is a different prize every day. Comment by August 28th then and winners will be announced on September 3rd. Good luck!
Thank you so much for stopping in today and don’t forget to pop back in tomorrow for another Blog Blitz post. Have a wonderful day!

Beautiful card. Happy accidents are what makes being creative so much fun!!

Gorgeous! I just love the subtle shading behind the die cuts – another clever way to get more out of those dies!
August 27, 2018 — 4:57 am
This is so beautiful Tracey. The layering dies are so gorgeous and I often use my background dies as stencils as well, it really does a beautiful job with distress inks.
August 27, 2018 — 5:23 am
Beautifully done! Thanks for the how-to tips. I don’t have any Birch Press Design dies yet, but this one is going on my wish list for sure!
August 27, 2018 — 5:36 am
I love your choice of colors, it ties the whole card together beautifully. The Birch Press Design layering dies are awesome.
August 27, 2018 — 6:00 am
The bold colors of the die cut really
pop off the pastel colors of the
background. Love the layering dies.
thanks for sharing

Love the card and just love the layering dies. I’m so glad you showed the happy accident, those types of moments are just heaven, aren’t they? TFS!
August 27, 2018 — 7:03 am
This may be my favourite die set yet – love the shapes of this Splash set!
August 27, 2018 — 7:19 am
Love the contours that this splash set makes and the beautiful colours you chose really showcases this set! At first glance of your card I didn’t really see the triangle fade frame as I was mesmerized by the mandala, but once you pointed It out I love how it adds texture without any bulk to the card front! Gorgeous!
August 27, 2018 — 7:30 am
Beautiful card!! Love the colors.
August 27, 2018 — 7:58 am
Pretty card! I like the sponged background in colors to complement the die cuts!
August 27, 2018 — 7:59 am
I do love the beautiful
stenciling behind the
Mandala! Gorgeous card.

The stencilled background really adds something. It softens the otherwise stark white background. The mandala is one of my favourite designs. Great look. Great job.

I really like this die set. The card with your pretty, but happy accident, makes a really stunning card. The good news is that you know how you did it, so you can do it again and try with other colors.
August 27, 2018 — 5:49 pm
This is just lovely Tracey! Your inky accident with the stencil resulted in a beautiful color. It looks terrific behind the pretty die cut!

The Splash mandala is stunning. Love how you’ve used the stencilling on the background..

Im taken back to a time in my childhood as I look at the design of this die. My mother had a scarf that she would wear on Sundays that had a similar pattern to this die. Its amazing how things in life can transport you back into time. What a sweet memory, and how beautiful is this card? Ha, two for one 😉

When you see something, or see a photo of something or hear a song on the radio and it takes you back in time is always so awesome! Thanks for sharing Yarah!
