Diva Blog Hop Embellish your March





The theme for March's Diva Blog Hop is Embellish. I chose to use supplies (stamps, embellishments and more) that are featured in the mini catalog.  I wanted to do several cards using the same stamp set changing the layout just slightly.  I like this simple stunning flower in the People Like You stamp set 133215. Plus the greeting is pretty universal "The world is a better place because of people like you.  




 

I love the Watercolor Wonder designer series print in this paper 132994. It really softens the card. My embellisment on this card, is the gold twine 132975, label punch, paper doilies, and gold foil paper 132622. 



Changing things up a bit this card has a more vertical focus. I used the gold bakers twine and metal buttons 133319,  and label punch on the greeting. I also used an embossing folder found for FREE with a $50 purchase in the Sale-A-Brate catalog on the Smoky Slate piece. 


  

For this next card I used the Big Shot and embossing folder again. I used white bakers twine. And to pop the flower off the gorgeous watercolor paper I cut out the stamped flower and mounted it with dimensionals. The card seemed to need a pop so I used two way glue and sprinkled on  Dazzling Diamonds glitter. It gives the flower a glistening watery look.


  

For my final card I had to try a gold and white card. Had to be done! I stamped the flower in gold Encore ink.  The gold patterned vellum paper 133363 gives a soft gold look when gold can be bold and bright. The vellum does soften things a bit.  I used the gold foil paper again and some more of that gold bakers twine. I do NOT like the gold sequins 132983 and am having trouble using them. I reached out to another demonstrator to play with them and see what she comes up with using sequins. I tried to rip them off but it started to destroy my project.  Just ignore the sequins.  


Thank you for stopping by for another Diva Blog Hop.  Here are all the cards.  I did not end up using all the supplies but had fun playing with the supplies I did use. This was my first time crafting in my office since my February 6th knee replacement.  Its been real fun!!!
