Spellbinders Blog Hop--Indie Bloom

Hello friends!

I am excited to be part of the Spellbinders Blog Hop for the Indie Line Collection.
This collection of dies evoke anything and everything tropical.  The Exclusives collection is only available at select online and local independent retailers ( see list here). 

 For example, you can shop at Scrapbook.com here

S5-360 Spellbinders LAYERED BUTTERFLIES Etched Dies

from: Simon Says Stamp
(Do get them while supplies last. The butterflies will sell out FAST)

Hope you will enjoy today's post as I used all bright and happy colors!

First up, it's the Layered Rose (color-layering) and Layered Butterflies (for dry-embossing)
For you (2)

I used Kuretake Tambi Watercolor to color the die cut pieces with Bristol card stock.
for you-002

For the background, I used Tan Embossing Mat to emboss the "Layering Butterfly" for the background. This gives subtle dimensions and interest to the white background.

for you-001

For extra shine, I applied Nuvo Gold glitter. It really doesn't take much to add glam!
For you

My 2nd project involves pineapple!
With the SAME design ideas and techniques, I created this SWEET card!
to a very sweet friend

For the background, I used the Swirl Frame Die and again, dry-embossed the edges.

I used the sentiment from Altenew's Folksy Flowers as it is perfectly fitting for this design.
You can find this lovely Tropical Pineapple Die here at Simon Says Stamp.

My 3rd project (previously share in my post here) is this gorgeous Layered Butterfly (also used in my 1st card)! If you love butterflies, this is a MUST-HAVE!

you are inspiring

The layering is super simple and the dimensions are amazing, as you can see.

you are inspiring-002
I hope my post gets you a juicy dose of tropics and sweetness!
