Feeling Appreciated, TSOT#289

Ahhh, I love designing for these bi-weekly challenges over at Try Stampin’ Or Not On Tuesday!

We have another great ‘go-to’ sketch for you to play around with –

Challenge #289. Optional Technique : Die cuts

I loved this sketch! See what I did with it –

Yep. Another stunning flower from the Thoughtful Branches bundle! Definitely a great use of the ‘optional die cut’ theme here.

The flower portion I stamped and die cut it out. I then cut another one out and flipped it over.

Ever look at a real hydrangea flower? It’s sort of hard to see an exact color. Some are a mix of bluish-purple. That’s what I was trying to recreate here.

The flower itself, I also popped up on dimensionals to make it stand out just a bit more. See the shadow in the picture?

The stem, I cut the leaf on the right off. I moved it down to avoid covering up the sentiment.

This is just a beautiful card. And, a beautiful use of the sketch. What do you think?

Check out what the Design team members created over at Try Stampin’ Or Not On Tuesday and play along with us! You can also find me or TSOT on Facebook too!

Happy Stampin’

  1. This is a beautiful card Libby and a great use of the Thoughtful Branches stamp set. I really think Stampin Up made a mistake not having this one in the AC. Love the colour mix and that flower is gorgeous!
