I have 4 projects today, and my first starts out by cutting all the pieces parts, except the frame, from the Layered Ornate Frame Die Set from some Solar White Cardstock. I colored them with some Crisp Dye Inks and some Mini Blending Brushes. I blended the Misty Morning and Cloudy Sky Inks around the outer edges of a white card base and cut the frame from Gold Mirror Cardstock and adhered that to the card. Then created a rectangle frame with a Fine Liner Pen. I adhered the flower and leaf layers together and then adhered them to the card. Colored a piece of cardstock with Cloudy Sky and cut the "hello" from the Sweet Sentiments Die Set out twice, adhered them together and then to the card. To finish this one, I added some rhinestones to the flower centers.

I dry embossed the background panel from the Peaceful Poppies 3D Embossing Folder, trimmed it down to fit onto a white card base with a strip of Gilded Glitter Cardstock running down the left side.
I adhered the Monochrome Wide Washi to a piece of white cardstock and cut out the flowers. I adhered it to the card. I cut the "thanks" from the Gilded Glitter Cardstock that has the Double-Sided Adhesive Sheets on the back of, and adhered that to the card. Finally, I adhered some rhinestones to the flower centers.

I created the background by dropping Alcohol Inks and alcohol on the top of the photo paper and then picking it up and using a puffer tool to move the ink down the paper. I used the Sweet Sentiments Hot Foil Plates and the Sweet Sentiments Dies to create the "celebrate" sentiment. I added the sub sentiment from the One-Go Birthday Greetings Stamp and Dies and added both to the panel.

YAY! How cute is this die? The two dies in the Word Balloon Die Set have little balloon tails, so you can make the words seem like they are balloons. But, I chose to cut off the little balloon ends, and easy peasy- just the word remains. I ink blended down the word with crisp dye inks and then used the same inks to blend through the Geo Triangles Stencils onto a white cardstock panel. I cut a couple more "yay's" from black cardstock and adhered them together and then to the panel. Added a sentiment from the One-Go Birthday Greetings Stamp and Die Set which was heat embossed with Crisp White Powder. And after I assembled the card, I added some little details with a white gel pen.

Thanks for the time you spent here with me.
