Hello my friends!
Wow! Life sure has been keeping me busy this week but I finally got around to creating a card for the current challenge over at the Classy Cards 'n Such blog which is
HEARTS & DOILIES
My friend (and current enabler!) created this card recently and after seeing it, I JUST HAD TO go over to the Classy Cards 'n Such store and make a purchase. Okay ... so it wasn't just the beautiful Cheery Lynn Designs die that I purchased ... she also
told me about talked me into the gorgeous metallic paper (Stardream Fuse Azalea) I used to cut this beautiful heart from.
This die has such beautiful detail and the metallic paper adds even more beauty to this die cut image! My little bird is a scrap piece (cut from Impression Obsession DIE-058N die) I had laying on my table from a recent card creation. I thought he looked cute singing his praises of Love Is In The Air!
My flower was created by using 3 of the 6 flowers you can die cut at one time when using the Cheery Lynn Designs #B310 - Shasta Daisy strip die. (They too were already laying on my table from a past creation! ... using up scraps ... yeah!). I simply conditioned each petal from the back side with my stylus then turned it over and pushed down in the middle to create the shape. A Kaiser pearl was perfect for the center.
A few additional challenges:
Die Cuttin Divas - Out with the Old (ribbon), In with the New (heart die)
Papertake Weekly Challenge - New Year Stash (heart die)
Try it on Tuesday - In with the New (heart die)
Bearly-Mine Challenge - Color Inspiration
Make My Monday Challenge - Birds
The Paper Nest Challenge - Anything Goes
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope your week is going well!
See you soon ... until then and as always ...
