Watercolor + Die Cutting… and LOTS of Giveaways

Hello! Lots of giveaway news for you today, along with a few card shares…

I am blogging today over on the Paper Crafts Connectinons blog. Be sure to head there to see more detail on these cards…

I had such fun creating this set! I just painted some watercolor pieces (lots of fast scribbles with watercolor pencils followed by back and forth swipes with a wet brush) and die cut the flower from the center. I matted each piece on white, allowing it to show through. Easy!

Wonder what I did with those unused flowers? I made this quick card. The photo stinks – sorry…

This was a great way to make some fast cards to have on hand for friends.

By the way, did you see the background of the notecards above? It is THIS awesome background stamp. It does a great pattern of dots that varies from the top to bottom… giving the look of texture. Fun…

And HERE is the lovely Simon Says Stamp daisy die I used. You can use this die with any die cut machine. (Click HERE for sandwich recipes for each machine.) I really like the quality of these wafer thin dies.

Easy and fun!


How would you like to win the Simon Says Stamp Fresh Daisy Die I used above? Just leave a comment by Friday at 11:59pmEST for your chance to win!
