Life is probably my favorite set that I've designed... up until now. I'm excited to start sharing a set that I think will be right up there with it! My newest POPPYprints stamp set design through Papertrey Ink... are you ready?!
Larger Than Life ($15) is a 7 piece, image only, companion stamp set (rather than an additions in my opinion) to Life. The images in this set are significantly larger and face the opposite direction than it's parent set, creating a perfect set for scene building if you already own Life and lovey all on its own too! There is also a coordinating Larger Than Life die ($16) with all of the major (5) images in this set! Over the next few days you will see how lovely, earthy and elegant these images are... and how easy and wonderful the dies are with these lovelies!
On to today's projects! (Please take the opportunity to click on the photos to make them larger and see the details up close!)
With Gray being such a hot trend right now I thought I would create a little ensemble Larger Than Life that shows off some of the dies as well as the scale difference to Life itself.
This first card shows the multi-sprig images from both sets. The die cutes give you an indication as to which images are from Larger Than Life and which are from Life. Having the images reflecting one another and one larger creates more balance when stamping many images! I love this aspect!
A close up of the dies. I created them a bit on the tight side so that there want a large amount of space around the edge that isn't inked.
Next up is a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch card using the flower images.
So fun to be able to take things a step further and create a field of depth on a card with not only the scale of the images but the die cut. So much faster than trimming it!
I wish the glitter showed up more sparkly in these photos... these cards just shine in person.
I used Heather's new Fillable Frames set for all of these cards. I really like the elegance this particular set has. It's perfect with Larger Than Life. One of the reasons that this set doesn't have any sentiments is because there are so many lovely sentiment sets that are already owned and available; by keeping it image only I was able to keep it at $15, making this set an incredible value!
One thing I truly enjoy about both of these sets is how ambiguous the images are. It allows me to create projects year round as well as change up the style of stamping I do. I can create soft pastel spring, bright and bold summer, warm earth-tone fall and cool tone winter. Whimsical to trendy... everything works!
Here is the ensemble together!
Simply elegant comes to mind when I think of these... they've really sparked my interest in making these in other color sets to pack away for later!
I can't wait to hear your thoughts and impression about ! How do you see yourself using this set? what style fits you best? Post a comment and let us know!
I have so many more fun things to share with you over the next few days... make sure to keep checking back so that you can learn all about Larger Than Life! (Available Nov. 15th)
