Take Your Dies Up a Notch!

Hello friends! 

This card was part of the process when I created this card. This is a good thing when using a stamp and die combo. I had many pieces of dies left and decided to create a heart-shape card.

Have you ever tried this? Just take a look at your stash and pick a shape (circle, oval or heart...) and use it as a invisible guide and arrange it into a shape. Easy!

There is no work cut out for you (pun intended) as the stamps and dies did all the work! Imagine fussy-cut the butterflies? By using a large heart shape as a guide, I managed to use up all the butterflies.

Adding some Nuvo Crystal Drops certainly help filling up the tiny space. They also enhance the overall design.

I hope this post gives you some inspiration.

Also...a reminder about a promotion over Altenew.

Penny Black Butterfly Heart Pop Die

Hello friends!
Butterfly Butterfly Heart Pop Die (Penny Black)
I was happy to get a hold of a few new Penny Black crafting goodies recently. Yesterday I got inky and had some fun with one of the dies. 😀
s


Need I say more? 
This heart die cuts out all the small butteries with the wings popping up. How cool is that? It really does everything for you and requires little else. You can go really light on the colors or like my example today...very very bright. 

I love us

For the heart die paper, I used my DIY watercolor paper. As usual, I sprayed the TH Distress Paint (see links below) before bedtime and the next morning, I have some gorgeous inky paper! As for that piece of yellow Bo Bunny Believe 6"x6", it was not part of the plan. What happened was I smeared the Delicata Shimmer Black Ink right after I stamped (grrrr)... so, yeah, that yellow paper was a "cover-up"! I actually like it now because the few inky splatter on the paper goes well with my theme! 😁

I love us
I love adding drops of white Nuvo Crystal Droplets. They are perfect for adding details.  And of course, sequins would not hurt, either! It goes without saying, this card will go to my hubby for Valentine's Day!

I happened to have a photo (taken in St. Thomas, Dec. 27, 2016) to go with it.
Later this week, I have some fun stuff to share! 😍 Please stay tuned!

Elegant Roses ( Take 2)!

Hello friends!
s


You must know how much I love using Distress Stains with dies. This is another one of them.
congratulations

What's special is the background...that Stitched Border (Lawn Fawn ) is very nifty.

You can use each stitched line individually. But I kind of like it as a group. This way, I can easily use it in a background, such as this one in today's post.
Congratulations
This card is pretty straightforward. All the supplies I used are listed below in the links
below. Here is my previous card with the same die.
