A fun die from In Love Art Shop...


I had so much fun using this sweet flower die. It's from In Love Art Shop where you can use my discount code, G-40248for 20% off.

For my first card, I cut it several times (it cuts beautifully!!) out of black cardstock and adhered them randomly to my card front.

I heat-embossed a sentiment onto black cardstock and matted that with some silver glitter cardstock.

Final touches included some scattered clear gems and a black ribbon near the fold.

The inside of my card featured a stamped sentiment and a few more gems.

Next, I used the die-cut as a focal point on a couple of cards where I had first adhered some brightly colored cardstock panels. This time, I used white glitter cardstock for the die-cut with some coordinating Nuvo Drops for the flower centers.

Would it also look good cut from beige glitter cardstock and adhered to jewel-toned panels? These color combos were actually my favorite. 

Here's an example of one of the inside sentiments. I used my computer to create most of them.

Finally, I wanted to try coloring a white die-cut with alcohol markers. I loved the way this one turned out, too. It's so bright and cheerful. Here, I've added some gems to the centers of two of the flowers. The sentiment was also die-cut and adhered to my dotted panel.

I really love this die and have a few more ideas on how to use it. Most of these cards will be sold at the thrift store, but I did keep a couple of them for my stash.

Remember, if you're interested in purchasing it at In Love Art Shop, you can use the discount code G-40248 for 20% off.

We had SNOW flurries here today. My poor tulips are shivering and looking around for their winter parkas. Spring always comes in fits and starts in Minnesota. I sure hope it's here to stay soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Thsse are all fabulous. I really like the impact of black and white cards. That was a fun way to make a background. I also love the cheerfulness of the colorful birthday card. I can see you using this a lot. I wondered at first if you had die cut the white paper and backed it with black. You might want to experiment with it that way.

Fab cards Cheryl, that's a very versatile die you have there and you've showcased it beautifully!
Hope your Spring decides to stay soon - we've a frost due tonight but you can definitely feel a warmth in the sunshine when it appears! Hope all is calm with you - just watching the verdict on our news x

Oh, what a fun - and pretty! - die! I like all the different ways that you used it. What I really love, though, are the sentiments on the solid-colored backgrounds. Wonderful cards!

You are so enabling me - I have already gotten 2 orders from this company - and you are right the dies cut very nicely. But I think I am going to have to start a wish list - love this die - and so versatile. What a nice set of note cards it makes. And I love the black/white as well. Oh heck I just love all the cards. We got 4" snow on Tuesday - upper 20's Tuesday and Wednesday night. Glad we didn't have any garden out yet. It was all gone by Wednesday afternoon.
