Hello everyone. Hope you had a great day. Mine was super busy as usual but I managed to slip in a bit of playtime between loads of laundry this evening. I managed to make a couple more cards as well as this one but since I am a meanie (or so my kids tell me) I am going to spread them out and make you wait. I didn't do this card with any challenge in mind, a rarity I know, but I started with the sunflowers. I had been playing around with the new dies from the Our Daily Bread Designs store that match this stamp set Happy Fall. I have to tell you that these dies are super easy to use. The are in two pieces. One is a clear guide. You place it over your colored image and line it up, then mark with a pencil in the little circle thingies. You then remove the guide and place the die over the image lining it up with the pencils marks. I then ran it though my Big Shot and it cut out these sunflowers perfectly. I actually colored 9 flowers, cutting 6 out with the die. I then trimmed off bits and layer them together to get even more depth to my flowers.
What I used:
Our Daily Bread Designs Happy Fall and matching die
SU whisper white, early espresso, always artichoke card stock
7 Gypsies Gypsy Market designer paper
Versafine black and clear embossing powder
