Here's a card using another of my new The Greetery dies recently released.
supplies: white, cornflower blue, paler blue, and green cardstock, The Greetery Blue Bells Botanicuts dies, Altenew Fine Frames die, Hero Arts (retired) Old Letter Writing woodblock stamp and sentiment from (retired) Forever cling stamps, partial Sunny Studio Frilly Frames Eyelet Lace die,micro-dot adhesive, Doodlebug tiny heart sprinkle
I love any flower that's blue, so this one was a must-have die for me. I thought I'd make a vintage-feeling card using some old Hero arts stamps along with more modern supplies. Once again, the micro-dot adhesive came to the rescue to help secure the teensy frame and the skinny flower dies - makes everything SO much easier!
After cutting out my scalloped panel, I masked off an area to stamp the script background. Then I added the skinny blue frame, and stamped the main sentiment. Lastly I added my blue bells, and then popped up the panel above a white card base.
My husband and I celebrated our 51st anniversary earlier this month, and here's the card I made him; it incorporates these bluebells along with some older The Greetery dies.
There's also a similar Botanicut set released at the same time that is Lavender - it's on my wishlist!
Thanks for stopping by - have a great day!

June is the month for weddings, and although I don't have one this year to attend, it's always good to have something "just in case". I decided I wanted to make a white-on-white design, and use vellum and embossing. I took this first picture against a bouquet of white peonies.

This week we want to see some Clean and Simple designs. The team is featuring Hero Arts products. You don't have to use this brand to enter our challenge, but if you do have some of their products, we'd love to see you using them, too!
I used a stamp set and 2 sets of dies that Hero Arts made first as a card kit. But it was so popular that they were re-released as single products. In my opinion, they are timeless designs!

Spellbinders is celebrating its 20th birthday today with a Celebration Event all day! You should see posts popping up all over today featuring birthdays!
I have 2 cards, both of which feature foil prominently - it seemed a good idea for this celebration, but I always forget how difficult it is to photograph!

I fell head over heels with Caly's card recently and couldn't wait to get myself these Spring Foliage dies from Pretty Pink Posh.
Caly colored hers with watercolors, I used pastel shades of cardstock with a bit of shading.

It's the month for weddings, so here's a card that could be used for that occasion. The cover die reminds me of eyelet lace!

Recently, Jennifer McGuire did a wonderful tutorial on adding texture using cover dies and die-cuts. I loved her examples and couldn't wait to give her technique a try! So I dug out some of my own supplies and here are the results.

We recently received a "store-bought" card and I was taken with the layout and the colors, so I decided to CASE it!
