Good Afternoon! Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend. We decided to make today a relaxing day and just kick back. I just thought I would get in a little crafting before my husband got up this morning, but I am just now getting it posted. I am late in getting to the challenge over at Papertrey Posse. We were challenged to use our favorites and whatever project we would like to do. I had a hard time deciding since there are so many things that are my favorite. I decided to go with dies since I actually do love them. They sure do make alot of things easier in crafting. I also did some heat embossing which I am starting to really like it.
I started our with Select White for my base. I love the look of the cut borders with the dies. I used the Victorian Lace border die to achieve the look. Since it actually cut it away from the CS, to attach it to the card I taped it and then used some scor-tape to attach my ribbon above it. I use the Limitless Layers 2 1/2 die for my background of my flower with the Royal Velvet. I cut a doily with Select White. (I love these!) I found that the points of this doily fit in every other point of the Limitless layer. I wanted to have a varigated flower so I cut several with the Beautiful Blooms #2 in the largest and smallest. I made the flower with the largest first and then I tucked the smaller one inside. The sentiment is from Big Bold wishes. I stamped it with versamark in black and using clear embossing powder. While it was still warm I sprinkled some Prisma glitter to give it some sparkle. It sure is hard to photograph, plus it just gives it hint of glitter. The colors I used were Raspberry Fizz and Royal Velvet. The leaves were cut with Delightful Dahlia leaves from Spring Moss CS and stamped with Ripe Avacado.
Have a great rest of the weekend,
