Happy Monday! I can’t believe that NEXT Monday is JULY! Goodness, the summer is flying by. And it’s been a LOVELY one here so far. This week will be high 80’s and sunshine – finally a respite from all the rain we have been having. But rain brings happiness to the flowers and makes them lovely – just like these flowers today with the LOVELY WORD DIE from Picket Fence Studios.
I want to show two different cards today, each using Ruffled Peony
Bouquet (previously released) and one of the new word dies from the June
release. First up is a watercolored bouquet.
I added layers of Kuretake Gansai Tambi paint, and then cut the word
alone out of black cardstock. For easy placement, and to keep it straight, I used
the negative piece of cardstock and lay my pieces in as I glued them to
the watercolored piece.
Next is an uncolored image I showed previously on Release Day using the same Ruffled Peony Bouquet, and
the Lovely Word die with its “shadow base.” I stamped the bouquet with VersaFine Clair Nocturne, and then made the center panel using red and white cardstock. It gives two totally
different looks, don’t you think?
June release for another fabulous new stand alone word die, along with some
crazy awesome stencils, stamps, and dies!
