Spellbinders -Large Die of the Month (May) and BAF Winner Annoucement

Hello friends!
This month's dies are all about flowers and flourish!

Large Die of the Month Membership from: Spellbinders
Just $20 per month + Shipping - paypal not accepted
It is only available from May 1 to May 31st.

I wanted to create with bright colors badly, what could be the fastest way?
Misting and spraying... (well, except the drying part).
I took out the Altenew Spray Mist and started create my own colorful paper.
With the right dies and colorful paper, I created my own garden.

I made the die cut and arranged how the die suggests. You see the large bloom on the right has all the pattern etched into the die, so you can simply follow the design and add your own flowers! 

One of the dies is a large Flourish and I thought it is perfect to add the background.
With the tan embossing mat sandwiched with the die, I created depth and textures!

I kind of had an idea to add BLACK to the mix to show contrast ant interest.
Before I regretted my decision, I dropped a few splatter to the white card stock VERY quickly.
The more you think, the more you hesitate and then ...well..... you would be too afraid to try!

There were a few black splatter that was not expected and seemed out of place, of course.
No worries! 😁 I strategically covered them up with flowers and sequins.

These dies are so versatile and fun. I created a few more versions...
Once I get it started, I can. not. stop.😀

Love your bright flowers against the bright white card stock. I love your dry embossing with that flourish die. I hope spring has arrived in Canada.

Sue D said...

Very pretty. I like how you created the flowers and the embossed flourish in the background.
I will send you an email--thanks!

Being a sucker for dry embossing, I noticed it right away. It makes a beautiful background for those lovely flowers. The colors are fabulous.

The embossed background sure makes your card stand out, the black spatters are the finishing touch. Great, colorful card.
