THREE Takes with The Etched Flower Buds Die

Hello friends!

Today's post is a follow-up on the Etched Flower Buds Die from Simon Says Stamp.
Previously, I came up with two versions with this die.
Is this the grand finale? Maybe. So far, I came up with these three!

Here is my version #3

Some of you know that I love to use the dies for dry-embossing.
(I did this one for you, Coni. )
This time, I couldn't help myself and did it again.

You can simply dry-emboss your die with the tan embossing mat. This will result a textured look on your paper. You can leave it as is.  This Etched die is perfect for dry-embossing.

Here I inked up the surface with a piece of foam and more distress Oxide.
I decided not to add sentiment.

How cool is that one die can offer so may possibilities?
I hope that you are having good day. Thanks for checking this post out!

What a great trio of cards, Virginia! So fun to see more than one way a die can be used - especially love the white embossed flowers behind your colorful ones!!

Love the combo of die cutting and dry embossing with the die - a great look!

The die is perfect for the dry embossing. All three cards are really pretty. I really like the last one and agree that it looks perfect with no sentiment. I sometimes leave them off and then try to decide whether I should put one on anyway.

It's amazing how many looks you've gotten with this one die. It looks lovely embossed on white and colored with sprays and inks. LOVE this 3rd rendition...those colors and embossing just pop off the card panel.

Always like the group shares for more ideas for use and a look at how to change up the design.
