Poppy Easel Card.

  Hi there.  Thanks for visiting today.   I'm here to share with you my Easel Card for our latest challenge. 

And our theme for the month is Fun Folds.

I have a lot of older Hero Arts stamps and dies but recently saw some new Hero Arts goodies in stock at my local online store so couldn't resist buying a couple of  Stamp'N'Cut set.    Today I decided to go with an Easel card. 

Here is the front of the card.  I have used an Altenew 3D embossing folder and some die cut ovals from a Gina K set.  The poppy is from  Florals Poppy Combo.  I stamped it directly to my die cut oval.  I used some of the Altenew Woodless Watercolour pencils to colour it up. 

And here it is open.  I used Altenew Apothecary Labels die cuts to make my easel stopper.  The sentiment is from the HA Poppy stamp set.  

Do come and join us for our challenge.

Branch Blossoms from Rachel Vass

Hey there Diva friends - Diva Linda (Scrappin', Stampin', & Singin') here with a thank you card featuring a lovely Rachel Vass spray of flowers:




Thanks to teamie Arlene (A Bit of This and That) for printing off several of these images with some of the included sentiments. My wireless printer at home isn't speaking to my laptop and my parents' printer got a jam I couldn't clear - so frustrating!! Thanks for coming to the rescue Arlene!! There are many other gorgeous designs available too - see them all HERE.

Arlene sized the branch  & sentiment for an A2 card with plenty of border. I trimmed it down, colored it with Copics, and framed with a stitched mat layer cut with the next smaller mat die to form the frame. Next I fussy cut a small stem from a different print of the image. Colored that and adhered so it connected to the other stem and overlapped onto the frame. If you look closely, you can see where I connected it but looks pretty good to me! 

I usually don't note my Copics used but did this time: C01, C02, G00, G02, YG45, E50, RV21, YR12. The flower centers have some added Crystal Stickles.

Thanks to sponsor Rachel Vass - love her designs!! Be sure to enter your card using a die cut or embossing folder with some kind of frame to our Frame It Challenge by 9pm PST 1/31/21 for a chance at our random prize. Rachel has donated 3 digi images for our winner - yay!!

Thanks for stopping - happy die cutting and framing!!
