Last Day for Rachel Vass Inspiration at Die Cut Divas

The theme at Die Cut Divas for August is FLOWERS.  You only have until 9:00 p.m. Pacific time in California to enter your flower cards here.

Rachel Vass Designs has some of the most beautiful flower digital stamps and I have been super busy playing with them.

I arranged the flowers in a Word document, moving flowers and leaves around to make four cards on a 8 1/2 X 11 inch piece of Copic marker paper.  I have two styles below so you can see how they looked.

I made three cards with similar designs.  One Thank you card had a misspelled "Thank you" so I covered the original "Thank Yu" with a proper "Thank you".

I haven't used my sprays in a long time, but found my red SmoochSPRITZ and sprayed the red card  while masking off the flowers and sentiment.

I used a Copper Nuvo drops for my three dots on this card.

I told you I can't get enough of this set.

Card Chain Challenge reveal for August

 Card Chain Challenge - Always a great way to keep in touch with each other.  The big reveal for all entries is at here on September 2nd.

We had color, sketch, theme and product/technique options to choose from.  I chose paper piecing, which I haven't done in quite some time.  On with the reveal!



I dressed up a Julie Nutting doll and added lots of glittery things to the whole card, including the outfit.  This is the first time I've used this doll that has a matching die.  I had lots of fun making this card from how to dress her to using a new stencil.
