How Many Dots?

Color Hues #56- Pink and Red & Anything Goes With A Twist of Dots

As I was putting away some dies I found the one I’ve used above among the others. It is an unbranded die and was actually a disappointment, as it wasn’t what I expected when purchasing. As well it doesn’t cut perfectly but I decided to use it anyway. I guess you get what you pay for. Using a pink scrap piece I die cut the panel and as you can see some of the dots didn’t cut properly. Instead of trying to cut them out by hand I decided to use the panel with them there and added it to another scrap piece of darker pink. Using Hero Arts infinity heart dies I cut the frame of one heart along with another smaller full heart and then a smaller one still using a left over piece of dry embossed CS. I added them to the card front and added the sentiment which is from a Divinity Designs set. I stacked the stamp and curved the corners. I finished the card using some Pops of Color in a different pink. The embossed folder used on the small white scrap is a Gemini folder called Celebrate.

My back pain was not so bad this afternoon giving me the chance to create for a short time. I managed to finish a card for my hubby’s upcoming birthday as well as this one so not a complete waste of the day. Thanks for all the wishes and for stopping by.

  1. The background with some of the dots remaining looks planned – and great! I am so quick to throw away panels that don’t work perfectly; I should take a page out of your book! Love how this turned out.

    1. I’m having to teach myself to throw away scraps as I have a tendency to keep it all. Glad you like this one. It has grown on me since I finished it.


  2. Although you weren’t pleased with the die, your card looks wonderful. I like that some of the dots didn’t punch out and that your popped some up, too. The embossing on the white heart is lovely. Just enough.

  3. Thanks Gayle – I have a couple of dies that don’t cut well even if I give them lots of pressure, but I managed to salvage this one with minimal effort.


  4. I actually like your card with not all the dots punched out…looks more random! And you’ve used the challenge colors beautifully, so it’s a win, win I’d say! Thanks so much for sharing with us at The Color Hues Challenge! Marcia (DT)

  5. We all have made a purchase a time or two that has been a disappointment and despite the dots not all falling out as you would expect, it looks great in the end. I think carrying the dot theme with the epink enamel dots was a nice touch. As for your back pain, I certainly hope you feel better soon. I appreciate you picking Color Hues to play along with when you are not feeling your best. Take care!

  6. Thanks a lot. I’m happier with this card after receiving some good feedback for it. Sometimes having others like something helps one to feel better about it.


  7. I think it turned out great. The dots that didn’t punch look like they were inlaid. Sometimes things like this turn into a happy accident which is the case here.

  8. You are right about sometimes what appears to be an error turns out to be a happy accident. I’m learning to go with the flow and try to use things however they turn out.
