Old and New

 I appear to be obsessed with the beautiful rolls of washi tape that PinkFresh Studio has been giving us, and I just ordered and received 2 more of them: Hydrangea and Rose, and Blossoms and Berries.  I pulled out an old oval doily die and mixed everything up for today's cards.

supplies: white, Cotton Candy, and gold metallic cardstock, vellum, Sunny Studio Quilted Hearts embossing folder, Impression Obsession Ornate Oval Frame die, PinkFresh Studio Hydrangea and Rose washi tape and Phrase Builder: Sending sentiment die, Doodlebug heart sprinkles

The Ornate Oval Frame die is 1 piece, but it cuts out 4 parts, plus a negative.  Here I used 2 of the inner elements it cuts, along with the ornate frame.  I just assembled everything, then stacked them, no lifting on this one.  The Washi gives you a total of 7 floral elements - I chose 3 of the small to medium ones for this card, concentrating on the hydrangea parts.  

Next, I started with the negative of the Ornate Frame, added the small oval from it, and some washi elements from Blossoms and Berries.

supplies: white and metallic gold cardstock, a very pale pink dotty dp, Impression Obsession Ornate Oval Frame die, PinkFresh Studio Blossoms and Berries washi and Phrase Builder: Sending sentiment die, gold sequins, adhesive foam squares to lift main panel

This time I used the negative die cut, lifting it and the washi elements above the inner oval and sentiment.  This washi has a little less gold highlighting, mainly just on the roses, so I added gold sequins to bring in more gold.

PinkFresh now has 9 different rolls of wide washi tape like these - I have 6 of them!  Do you think that's enough?  One nice thing about them is that the ones that have mainly pinks in them can be mixed with each other.  And lately, I've found that a matching die is not necessary at all if you enjoy fussy-cutting.  

Thanks for stopping by today - hope your weekend is a lovely one!  Come back tomorrow and I'll have a couple more cards using the largest images from these washi tapes.
