Breezy Blossoms

Hi Artzy friends - 

For my blog post today I have two cards created with the same stamp and die set and same framelit dies.

First up is this thank you card. The floral image was stamped, stenciled, and die cut with the Breezy Blossoms collection of products.

I created the green and orange mats with dies from the Oval Scalloped Framelits set. The striped background paper is from the Sweetmobile paper pack. My sentiment is also from Breezy Blossoms and it is stamped on a die cut strip from a die in the Center Step die set.

My 2nd card also features a flower from the Breezy Blossoms stamp and die sets. This time I colored my image with Copic markers. 

I cut a window in a piece of paper from the Merry and Bright collection with a die from the Oval Scalloped Framelits set and backed the window with a piece of acetate. I adhered a piece of cardstock that I foiled with the Make Waves hot foil plate and a Solid hot foil plate to my card front. I then popped up my floral window panel on the card, and finally, popped up my flower on the acetate window. I could have added shaker bits inside the window but let like there was already enough going on and they would just be a distraction.

My birthday wishes sentiment is from the Love Grows stamp set, and it is stamped onto a diecut from the Mini Gift Tags die set.

Thankful for My Friends

Hi Artzy friends - 

Today I combined several different Dare 2B Artzy products to create a quick card for a friend.

I am fairly new to hot foiling but I love using Dare 2B Artzy hot foil plates for backgrounds on any type of card. The one I used here is called Artzy Deco. I used a matte gold foil to create this background.

The flower vases and butterfly are cut from the pretty Potted Posies paper using dies from the Potted Posies and Love Grows  die sets. Both of these die sets also cut out the images from their respective stamp sets.

I applied versamark and gold embossing powder to a scrap piece of white cardstock. I cut the word thankful out of my gold heat embossed paper with a die from Grateful Layered Word Dies. The For Our Friendship sentiment is a stamp in the Grateful stamp set. All of the patterned paper I used is cut from Field of Hope, which is part of the Everything is Blooming collection.

I love all the ways you can add shine to make a simple card stand out!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day,
