ONE DIE, FIVE CARDS

A week ago I met up with Becca Cruger at Starbucks in Fargo, ND and we talked for 2 hours and then did some shopping at K & K Krafts in Moorhead, MN.  Becca gave me some yummy apple jam, "adult" cocoa mix (a little bottle of Bailey's to make it adult) and a fantastic die. 
So I decided to see how many different cards I could make with it at one sitting.  Virginia Lu takes a stamp and makes 4 or 5 (sometimes more) cards from the same stamp.  So here's the result with a die!




If you are wondering how I did the second card, check here - it's a Julie Ebersole technique that is really fun and quite easy to do.  Mainly, I die cut the flower in black, pink and peach and then pieced and colored the flower with my Copics and Memento markers to make the various cards.  On the last card I used PTI die, Take Three, and embossed to make the background for the poppy.  There's WIS of the poppy but couldn't photograph the shimmer.  The die is Darling Poppies from Memory Box. The black ink on all the cards is from Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by and always enjoy reading your kind comments.  Betty

  5. Awwwww! Betty!!! If I knew you could create this many amazing cards with that die, I'd have sent it to you a long time ago! I already used some of the paper you gave me, but I can't post the card just yet until it gets to England. ;) Meeting you was the highlight of my Easter weekend and my Aunt Jerrie (who also does CCC) was very jealous!
