A Little Die Cutting

Hello Crafty Friends!

I hope you're enjoying the sunshine wherever you are. Here in the UK something very special has happened... we are having a Bank Holiday weekend AND the sun is shining!!!!

Well I'm keeping this one short.I made two cards out of one die cut, here they are:

My First card uses a die-cut brusho background, one I made at the Happy Little Stampers Craft Retreat at the end of July in combination with the Joyful Bouquet Memory Box Die, brand new and never used before, with a little sentiment from the Doodled Flowers set by Happy Little Stampers.

Next up is the card I made using the negative of the Joyful Bouquet die on a dark background ...

... with a sentiment from the Thinking Of You set by Happy Little Stampers. Two quick cards out of one die cut.

I am entering my first card at:
Allsorts - use at least two dies, stitched rectangle and joyful bouquet
Darnell's NBUS #7 - at least one item must be 'Never-Before-Used-Schtuff', joyful bouquet is mine

Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes with dies
Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes using Happy Little Stampers stamps

That's it from me. Have a lovely day!

  4. Ohhh my goodness the background you have used is just stunning. And the die cut looks brilliant in both the positive and negative, stunning cards.

  5. Beautiful background! Love both cards! Just beautiful! Thanks for playing with us at HLS!

  6. Aren't dies just the greatest that we can (usually) get two cards out of one cut! I love this, Monika, and love the inspiration for a beautiful way to use a Brushos background to let it shine through! Which background, BTW, is soft and gorgeous! I also love how you did a card with b/w and a pop of red for your negative number! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! I hope you enjoyed the Bank Holiday AND sunshine!! Hugs, Darnell

  7. Beautiful cards, clever to use the negative too. Creative Blessings, Tracy x
