There is a great new group of products with this release - framed sentiments with a cutting plate that they can fit into and also coordinating flowers. I love the flexibility you have with products that work together but also can stand alone. (To see them together, keep scrolling down to see the Crafty Points bundle.)
I used the "love" script without the cutting plate, because there's also a new stencil that I had to play with - the Subway Tile Stencil.
I added a a tiny flower and leaf from the new Bloomers 9 set. There are three sizes and, as part of the entire group of products, they match the cutting plate (see below).
It's hard to see because I used white, but the bloomers have coordinating backers so you could add two colors (see the graphic below) or go with the top and back in the same color for a dimensional look! Also FYI, I used a translucent embossing paste on the Subway Tile stencil to give it the shine.
Isn't this a wonderfully flexible group of products. And there's a great deal on the bundle of all of these coordinating products. Check out the TE blog for all of the details.

In the first card, I used a cute little bloomers flower. This card uses a realistic, detailed flower - Layer It - Daisy.
I adore the look of this daisy. The top layer gives it dimension and shadow. I used two of the bottom layers to give it fullness. I love how realistic it is.
Most of this release is about love - I went in a different direction for "love" and used an encouraging sentiment from the previously released In & Out - Get Well. The flower was so sweet and cheerful, I felt like it would make a lovely card for a cheerful "I'm here for you". I had pulled out a bright yellow to use for the daisy - Lemon Meringue - but then I decided I wanted a little softer look and went with Pineapple (which I also realized is amazing with Toffee!) A little Sea Salt cardstock makes the perfect top layer.
Today was love and encouragement. Tomorrow is entirely different - shenanigans and puns - but still all about love! Head over to the TE blog for more sneak peeks, then be sure to come back tomorrow.
This is a very pretty pair of cards!!ReplyDelete
Your work with dies is always amazing, and these two cards prove it in spades. I would never have thought to 'hang' the love framed sentiment. But you did. Brilliant idea! And against those subway tiles, it looks fantastic. That daisy!! I know what's going in my basket soon...maybe in time to go under the tree, lol!! Can't wait to see the whole release. Christmas blessings, my friend. BevReplyDelete
