Wild Grasses

Hello and a Happy Friday you!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using a new die from Cheapo Dies.  I'll be here every Friday to share a new die with you so I hope to see you again.  In the meantime, be sure to take time to check out all the different dies they have available.  You can see them HERE.

The die featured today is the Wild Grass DieI cut one out of Oreo cardstock and two out of River Rock cardstock.  I stacked them together then, added them onto a piece of Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment was stamped using Chocolate Truffle ink.  For the finishing touch, I added a few Oreo Enamel Dots.

Candle Arrangement

Hello and a Happy Friday you!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using a new die from Cheapo Dies.  I'll be here every Friday to share a new die with you so I hope to see you again.  In the meantime, be sure to take time to check out all the different dies they have available.  You can see them HERE.

The die featuring is the Candle Arrangement Die.  I die-cut two of them, one in Sugar Cube and one in Poppy Parade and offset the red layer so it was peeking out from behind the white.  After stamping the Pine Bough Background in Cilantro ink, I stamped the sentiment from the Holiday Florals stamp set in Jet Black ink.  I popped up the die-cut on foam tape to give it a bit of dimensions.  For the finishing touch, I added a few Cherry Pop Enamel Dots.


Stamp Sets:  Pine Bough Background, Holiday Florals (Taylored Expressions)
Inks:  Cilantro (Taylored Expressions); Jet Black (Altenew)
Cardstock:  Mossy Meadow, Poppy Parade (Stampin' Up!); Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions)
Dies:  Candle Arrangement (Cheapo Dies)
Other:  Cherry Pop Enamel Dots

Today I'm featuring the new Branches Die. I die-cut two of them in green and used them for trees.  Also, I die-cut one out of white and colored the tips in lavender ink and the stems in green to make little flowers to go on each side of the door of that cute little house.  What you can't see is the sparkle of the roof line.  It just never photographs well.
