Hello! Glad you stopped by. Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. It's been a not so good week...family illness, drama and all around chaos...sucking the joy, creativity and just leaving me "down". But...This is my happy place! So no more whining from me! (at least for today lol!)
I made these cards using some of the new Die cuts I got on our stamping trip to Michigan. The sunflower & butterfly are from Cheery Lynn Designs. The vine swirl is from Marianne Designs. I just LOVE them! On the butterflies I added vellum wings behind and colored on the back with markers. Made the color more muted.
The bigger flower die is a Tim Holtz Sizzix die. I have been wanting a flower die for awhile but didn't want to pay some of the prices I saw from Stampin Up. I got this one for 1/2 the price they wanted. Not exactly the one I wanted but it will do! Of course I probably didn't NEED it as I already have a Cricut and I am sure I could cut out flowers with that. But I thought it would be nice to have to "take with me" for crops or classes. I want to try and make some flowers out of fabric with it too.The Hope die is also a Tim Holtz die.
Have a terrific day. I am looking forward to getting crafty this afternoon :)
