Have a Beautiful Birthday


Well, hello! I've been spending some time crafting with stamps and dies that are new
to me, and was happy to see The Flower Challenge chose the theme, 'Use Your Latest
Stamps or Dies'. 

The Greetery's Botanicuts dies are simply amazing. Finelyinely crafted and 
carefully thought up pieces that produce flowers, pinecones, leaves and other
items from nature that allow your creativity to... well... bloom.

I began stamping the largest stamp from Sketchbook Roses on my card base, arranging on
corners, and covering the top. The spray is done with a toothbrush, and Lindy's Stamp Gang
Starburst Moonstone.

The roses are inked with Oxide Distress inks, mainly reds and pinks, and the leaves
are inked with greens and blue. I'll list the colors below. Once done and assembled
I flicked on the Moonstone and then white.  I did pop up up the pedals, and used
foam on the smaller rose, and rose bud. Betsy has a couple of fabulous You Tube
videos on how to's for her Botanicuts I found very helpful.

The Rose die set is not new to The Greetery, but I was so happy it's finally added to 
my collection. Layering brings this set to life. And I'm imagining all the color ways
Thanks for the visit, and hoping you're enjoying craft time too! Not much else
 to do until I get a Covid shot! (Or 2...)
