Happy Sunday everyone,
Happy Mother's Day and I hope whatever you are doing you are having a lovely day!
Here is a card I made as part of a set for our lovely Tracy to showcase some goodies from Dies To Die For in Die Cutting Essentials magazine.
Ingredients from DiesTo Die For
Stamps - MFT All Occasion Sentiments
Card Stock from Hobbycraft
Design Paper from Anne Marie Designs
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads in Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry
I used this die in quite a different way by cutting the Chrysanthemums out individually and using Distress Ink to create a blended ombre effect on them.
Here is short tutorial which I hope might be useful...
Layer the 13cm Circle Die die over the fold of a 15cm x 15cm card blank and die cut to create a circular shaped card with the fold at the top. Using the same die cut a piece of white hammered card and fix it to the card blank. Using the 12cm Scalloped Circle Die cut a piece of purple card and fix it to the card blank and set aside.
From the polka dot card die cut the largest stitched circle frame. From hammered card create a card panel with the 10cm circle die. Set both pieces aside.
On a piece of white card blend the Tim Holtz Distress Inks in an ombre effect light to dark, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves. Die cut a Blooming Chrysanthemum from the coloured card. Cut out the flower heads and stick them around the edge of the white card panel as shown.
Stamp the sentiment across the centre of the card design using Onyx Black Ink. Fix the polka dot frame to the card design.
Firmly fix the card design to the front of the card blank set aside earlier.
Thank you for popping by.
