Happy Thursday my crafty friends! I’m hoping everyone is dong well. I read a quote last night and it says: Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined. This quote has me written all over it. I recently started a new job so light has been a little busy.

This week I played top right diagonal row down ( Flowers, Any Sentiment, Foliage). I hope you link up and join us this week for some Tic Tac Toe with a crafty twist!

For my design this week I created a couple of roses from the Build A  Flower: Rose stamp set and die to create these beautiful roses. One of the roses I masked off by using the complimentary die set.  I chose the Cherry Blossom, Green Fields Mini Cube Set. The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I was pleasantly surprised that my design came together easily by following the alignment guide and watching Nicole’s video. Using shades from the same color collection was definitely an easy way to ensure good color coordination. I really enjoy the Altenew Crisp Inks. They lay down color nicely and dry to perfection. They may look a little splotchy at first, but once the ink is completely dry, the color is uniform across the entire stamped image. To complete my design I die cut the art panel using the Lil Inker Stitched Mats Dual Stitched Rectangles for the stitched look and  adhered it onto an A2 Neenah Solar White card base.


I marvel at how realistic the layered images look with just simple stamping  – they make your cards look so special!
