Dies, Stamps and Embossing

DRU Challenge #143 – Spring Flowers

I’ve made a few cards in a similar vein recently and this is the 2nd one I’m posting. I still haven’t posted the very 1st one, which is my personal fave, but it’ll be posted eventually. For this card I used a SSS set that is my current favourite set and after stamping, I die cut several of the leaves so I could stack them for dimension. I used Distress Oxides to colour in the leaves. As well I added perfect pearls to make them shimmer. The embossing was done using a Sissix thinlits set and run through the BigShot. I really like how this embossed part looks. I added some shimmer to the pink cs which made it darker but has a nice shine. Glued it to a plum punch card base. Did the sentiment and added some colour to top as it was too stark for the rest. Added a few gems to finish it. I’m glad I waited to post this as it works for the current DiesRus challenge.

  1. This stamp set was definitely a find for you. I love when you find one that you can use in many ways on different cards. Lovely colors and design once again.

  2. Its funny how one particular set becomes a favourite. It was the same with one of Lisa Hetricks sets. I went mad with it for a while. Hmmm, must pull it out as I’ve not used it since last year. Glad you like this.
