fine flora

This month’s release is titled, Fine Flora, though, you’ll notice in my projects that I don’t have much flora going on! LOL! I was really drawn to the nesting and geometric cuts as well as the word dies – because, who doesn’t need another word die?!

I wanted to showcase some cards that have NO stamping. Though we are stampers, sometimes it’s fun to just play with paper and dies make that so easy! I hope you enjoy the unified purple color palette I chose for this trio. The addition of Gold Foil cardstock and a base of Spicy Yogurt cardstock really gives them all a rich, warm look.

soda top hello

Nesting dies can create some of the most stunning backgrounds, and the Soda Top Nesting Dies don’t disappoint! For this 5-minute card, I chose to create a gradient nesting pattern in shades of purple, with the bold Waterbrush Hello die in black. The single layer of Gold Foil gives just enough pop that no other embellishment is necessary for this CAS design!

golden hello

I’ve been thinking about making a card just like this one for a while now. The Waterbrush Hello die was the perfect die to make the vision come to life! As with the first card, cutting out the dies is what took longest. Gluing and trimming takes just a matter of minutes!

hanging garden thanks

The Hanging Garden dies are going to be a set I reach for often to add just the perfect floral touch to the background of many designs. I love that I was able to cut up the individual leaves to make a more full arrangement, framing the Apothecary Label die and Bold Thanks sentiment.
