Spoon Full of Sugar - Die Cuts

Hello and Happy Tuesday - Today is Spoon Full of Sugar day and this week it is all about Die Cuts- I just love an easy theme that lets us use one of our favorite toys.. I mean tools... LOL
I started with A Sarah Kay image - This is one of the new Autumn releases -Francesca in the winter field - the last time I used her I went with all traditional Fall Colors. This time, I went with girlie colors ;0) Love pink and green - Colored with my Copics (I have been listing my colors used at the end of the post) I then cut out with my Nesties. (My first use of a Die cut for this card)

I then had some fun with lots of pink and green!! A while card base, with a dark pink card stock mat. I zig zag stitched a piece of pattern paper from my scraps. Then I made me second Die Cut item - First time I have used my Marianne Designs Border Die. Really love this one, I cut it out, then ran it back through with an embossing mat, and WOW... love the texture and design it give it. I very lightly inked over the edges and the embossed flowers and lace with pink ink. I then ran a piece of small satin ribbon through the holes and tied a bow.
Then to my Third Die Cuts! Love Love Love these - I used my new Heartfelt Creations stamps that are made to match Nesties Dies! This stamp set is the Sunburst Flower - and it works with Dahlia Flower Die set. So cool how I just stamp - and the dies just fit over the flower shapes and cut out perfectly! I cut three different sizes and then inked the edges. For the added bling factor I added a pink flourish - I would like to say they are rhinestones, but they are actually a very cheap pink plastic... LOL but if you don't look to close you can't tell that. Now the next step...well I wish I hadn't done it, but once I did it ... it was too late. I added a touch of glue to the edges of the flowers and then added Glitz - really a gorgeous product that I am just not to good at using.... really sparkles and looks wonderful on the Heartfelt Creations website, but well mine... I ended up wiping a bunch off as it just didn't look right. Looks like crushed glass and large glitter really beautiful - I just need lots more practice with it.

So I used LOTS of die cuts on this one card - But for your card as long as you use one you can add it to the challenge for a chance at a great prize! Now visit the Spoon Full of Sugar to see the other DT Die Cut creations! 

Well have a wonderful Tuesday... me... sticking close to home... keeping a close eye on Libbie - still no babies....

HUGS and-

Your card is fun and beautiful. I really think that die cuts are the perfect way to enhance our stamped images. And, of course, stamped then cut out flowers, how can you go wrong?

I can see the cuteness and the stylish designs of the products. It was made with great effort. You can use these products as home decors because of its awesome features.
