Alex Syberia Designs | One Year Anniversary Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, I am delighted to be joining Alex Syberia Designs today to celebrate their one year anniversary. I cannot believe it has been a year already since the first release! Today I have a card and tag to share with you using some products from the September 2023 release. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

My projects are based around the new Thin Stripes Cover Die. This can be used to die cut a coordinating stamp set, or used on it's own to create stripes. I decided to try a different colour scheme than I usually would and I really like how it turned out!

For the card, I started off by die cutting the Alex Syberia Designs Delicate Blooms Die Set from various shades of Concord & 9th Cardstock, as well as Hero Arts Peony Cardstock and Spellbinders Chamomile Cardstock. I created two larger flowers and one smaller. The leaves were die cut from Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock

The leaves were adhered to a panel of white cardstock first using Bearly Art Glue. The flowers were then assembled and adhered on top using thin foam tape. I took the Alex Syberia Designs Thin Stripes Cover Die and die cut it from Hero Arts Peony, C9 Dragonfruit, Spellbinders Chamomile, C9 Oceanside and C9 Peacock Cardstock. 

The stripes were adhered to the front of a US A2 sized white card base with Bearly Art Glue. The panel was adhered on top using thin foam tape. I stamped the Alex Syberia Designs Celebrations Sentiments Stamp Set onto Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut out with the Alex Syberia Designs Thin Stripes Cover Die and adhered to the card with thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Bubbles embellishments. 

I had lots of stripes left over, so I thought I would make a coordinating tag. I die cut a tag from the Alex Syberia Designs Signature Tags Die Set from white cardstock. I then adhered the stripes on top and cut off the excess with scissors. 

I hot foiled the Alex Syberia Designs It's Your Birthday Hot Foil Plate & Die Set sentiment onto white cardstock using Spellbinders Black Glimmer Hot Foil and the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System. It was die cut out using the coordinating die. I cut the die another two times from white cardstock and adhered them together one on top of another for dimension, before adhering to the tag. To finish off, I added Spellbinders Black Twine through the top of the tag and tied in a bow.
