Hi there, this is Bibi Cameron and I’m glad to be able to share ideas using Elegant Twist the latest die collection by Becca Feeken.

For today, I planned to show you four options to use any die from Elegant Twist die Collection to create subtle decorative elements or accents for your projects.
Elegant Twist Decorative Rectangular Background
I love Becca’s elegant designs, they are very versatile and this time I was keen to try something new.
So, I die cut a panel using three dies in Elegant Twist Rectangles Etched Dies and then I stamped this panel using a large Plaid Background Stamp using also Speckle Egg Oxide Distress ink.
For the projects today, I also used “Handing You a Smile – Spellbinders Small Die of the Month- June 2020”, sadly this die set is not available any longer but the Small Die – July 2020 contains similar floral dies.
I also added a foiled banner I made using Moondust Glimmer Foil and one of the sentiment is from Elegant Twist Borders and Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plates
Elegant Twist Decorative Card Base
This card features a simple idea to use any of the Elegant Twist dies to create beautiful die-cut borders or patterns directly onto the card base.
This mini card measures 4x 4 inches.
I simply added a stamped background panel and I adhered over it some flowers I also made using “Handing You a Smile”, the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month – June 2020.
To make these flowers, I simply added two washes of watercolor paint over watercolor paper. Allowing to dry the paint between washes and then I die cut the paper.
Elegant Twist Decorative Background Elements
For this card, I used the large Plaid Background Stamp to stamp directly on the card base. I die cut a panel using 3 dies from Elegant Twist Ovals Etched Dies and I used this panel as a decorative element or additional layer in the background.
I then stamped a large floral cluster I applied quick colors using Copic markers and I die cut it using coordinating die. I then die cut the image using the largest oval from Elegant Twist Ovals Etched Dies to then add the stamped image over the oval background shape.
Elegant Twist Decorative Gift Box Topper
To make this box, I used a scoring board. It measures 5″x 4 ” inches and it is 1″ inches tall.
I also used Sweet Cottage Flower die set by Becca Feeken .
I added colors to the flower using Sqezeed Limonade, Riper Permission, Aged Mohagony Distress Inks and for the leaves, I used Moved Lawn and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks.
For a smooth ink application, I used Nuvo Precision Blending Brushes.
Neenah Classic Crest 80 Smooth Solar White Paper; Concord & 9th PLAID BACKGROUND Clear Stamp Set; Waffle Flower BLOSSOMS Clear Stamp and Die Combo; Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pad May 2020 New SPECKLED EGG; Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad SQUEEZED LEMONADE; Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad RIPE PERSIMMON; Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad AGED MAHOGANY; Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad EVERGREEN BOUGH;

That’s all for today I hope you like the ideas in this post.
