& Gradient Cardstock Bundle
:(5% discount)

Stenciling for my first card using the Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup Layering Die Set cut from the backing paper off a sheet of Double-sided Adhesive...any paper can be used to create your own stencils with these sets.

Crisp Inks: Citrus Burst, Sunray, Chamomile, Misty Mint, Mountain Mist, Dew Drops

*******
So I did a thing...I took a not so good, yet colorful stenciled background and cut the Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup Layering Die Set from it to jazz up my next card. I LOVE how the varying patterns add interest to the leaves!

PLUS!!! I used other mixed media panels from my stash for the many Buttercup Layers. I never throw a panel away and keep them filed in a small drawer so I can look through them easily. Making the CRAFT-A-FLOWER die sets one of the most unique project builders in my craft room :))

Featuring:


The extra THANK YOU die and shadow cut is a welcome bonus in this set!



Thanks for stopping by!
Hoping my cards inspire your next masterpiece!!
LauraJane :)

Way to recycle! It makes me feel good when I can repurpose crafty things; especially when the end result comes out like yours did!

This is a wonderful die set. The more I see of it the more I like it. lovely cards!

Sheila said...

I love this set! I really appreciate the 2 cards that you made, but my favorite is the one where you cut the leaves out of scene that had been created. This really added a rich touch to the card Plus, I like the dark yellow that you used to create the flower. Whoever receives this card will definitely treasure it.

These are my favorite leaves ever! What a brilliant way to use your unused project pages. I usually dump my failures but you have given me hope! Such a beautiful card- now pinned to my "favorites" Pinterest board.

What a super neat way to re-purpose something you aren’t 100% happy with...you would never guess this pane, was created from a forest and mountain stenciled scene 😘
