Playing with an Intricate Die

With all this extra time I've got, I've been pulling out some products that have seen little use.  Today I played with this Hello with a Bouquet die, and made 2 cards.

supplies: white and sea glass cardstock, Pink Fresh Studio Hello with a Bouquet, Nuvo markers to color

I cut the die from white cardstock twice, once so that it released easily and again so that the pieces were still intact.  I used that one to messily color the flowers and leaves, and then reinserted it back into the A2 panel.  Then I attached the first cut, from which I had removed all of the small pieces to give me just the outline.  And lastly I cut the letters only from a scrap of sea glass cardstock, and inlaid them into place.

The 2nd version was much easier.

supplies: white and Audrey Blue cardstock, a patterned paper that appears to be watercolored in various blues, Pink Fresh Studio Hello with a Bouquet die, adhesive foam strips

For this one I simply lined the diecut with the watercolored dp, and popped up my letters with foam strips.  Couldn't have been easier!

Have you been revisiting some of your older stamps and dies?

It may have been the easiest, Lin, but it's totally my favorite of the two... maybe because I could [maybe] pull this one off? lol
Two gorgeous treats for a Saturday morning!
