I am very happy to participate this week as a Guest Designer at Scrapy Land which is one of my favorite challenge blogs. The theme of this challenge is: “Oh Happy Spring” and use at least one of the die brands Scrapy Land sells. Here is a list of the over 40 different brands Scrapy Land carries.
I think flowers are a sure sign of Spring, so I used several Memory Box floral dies on my card. The sparkly glittery party of this card was made with the Kiss Cut Technique. I applied a 3” x 5” piece of sticky two sided tape on a thick piece of white cardstock. I cut the Memory Box Joyful Bouquet die only through the sticky tape top part. This “Kiss Cut” is accomplished by using a thinner plate when die cutting on your favorite machine than you typically use. On the Big Shot, I used the transfer plate instead of one of the usual cutting plates. Then I used a Tonic Studios Tim Holtz pick to pick out the pieces of the flower I wanted to be pink, and dumped pink glitter in the flowers. I repeated with purple for the center flower, light green for the leaves centers and dark green for the rest of the flowers. Then I removed the rest of the sticky tape cover and sprinkled on white glitter. I rounded the edges and then embossed the piece with a Sue Wilson Beaded Fan Fare embossing folder. Here is a closer look at the sparkly glitter piece:
I cut a green A2 card base and rounded the corners. I die cut Memory Box Floral Breeze and applied some purple gems through the flowers on the white center piece.
Why don’t you pull out your favorite dies and create a card for this challenge? The prize is a $15 Scrapy Land gift certificate and you know you can find something great you want there!
I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at 613 Avenue Create and Craft Your Passion.
