Hello everyone!! This is Brenda Noelke from My PaperCut Creations. I am over-the-moon excited to be guest posting for Spellbinders over the next couple of weeks!!
I will be using the fabulous February Die D-Lites Release. Seriously, something for everyone!! The project I have for you today uses the Sketched Blooms Dies. I usually gravitate toward floral stamps & dies. Here in the Midwest, we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring, so I definitely wanted to create something spring-like.
I began by masking off the top & bottom of a panel of smooth cardstock and blended some Distress Oxide Inks for the background. I trimmed the panel down slightly and attached it to my card base. I LOVE dimension on my projects, so I cut each of the flowers from the Sketched Blooms Dies several times from thick, white cardstock.
I adhered one of each floral outline die-cut to the card base over the ink blended background. I decided to color one set of the inner pieces from each flower with Copic markers and in-laid them into the outline die-cut. Next, I adhered the remaining outline die-cuts on top of each other and adhered them onto the coordinating die-cuts on the card base. This creates so much dimension and really lets the die-cuts shine.
The sentiment was white heat embossed onto a thin, black banner and adhered. Sequins were added to the center of each flower and a few jewel drops were placed onto the background panel.
