Butterfly Twila

Here’s another card using some of the newly released dies from Creative Basics by Rhea. This one features the Fancy Rectangles Build-A-Card and Double Stitched Circles Die Sets. You can use the Fancy Rectangles Build-A-Card dies to create a shaped card which you see here. I also used one of the dies to create a frame on the front of my card. These dies are also great for shaker cards. This card also features Roberto’s Rascals Butterfly Twila available from C. C. Designs.

Creative Basics by Rhea Week!

This week the Passionate Paper Creations & Friends Design Team is celebrating the release of the new dies from Creative Basics by Rhea. I was inspired by this video from Jennifer McGuire Ink and the new Dotted Daisies Die Set were perfect for the project.

I cut out several daisies from white card stock using the smallest of the daisy dies. I colored each one with a Copic marker (in this case R29) and then glue three daisies together to create a layered die cut. I applied clear Wink of Stella to make them glittery and then a coat of clear Nuvo Drops to make them glossy. While the Nuvo Drops were still wet, I added gold Mini Prills to the center of each flower. I mounted the flower using a foam square. The end result was an embellishment that was almost like a button that I could use to add color and dimension to a simple card.

Old Fashioned Hollyhocks

Are you loving all the new Power Poppy digital stamp releases this week? I loved the new Old Fashioned Hollyhocks digital stamp set so I had to color it. I cropped the image and offset it to the left so that I could add a sentiment from the Hyacinth Bulb in Glass digital stamp set. I paired the image with a black and white striped paper from Echo Park Paper Company, resulting in a clean and simple card suitable for any occasion.

Grasshopper Leap – What’s Up?

Just a fun, cheeky little card featuring an image from House Mouse Designs called Grasshopper Leap. I just love the grasshopper ricocheting off of Mudpie’s head! I paired it with this sweet design paper from the Saucy Collection by Authentique and a sentiment from Paper Smooches to create a fun card to brighten someone’s day.
