CAS Mix Up Reminder - February 2019 - Dimensional Die Cuts

Good Morning Stampers,
Today's post is for February's CAS Mix Up Challenge, Hideko is Hostess and wants us to use Dimensional Die-cuts + Stamping + Your Choice.  I sponged Distress Ink on my card, splattered the sponging with Water and when it was dry I Taped the back of my card where I was going to die cut the background.  I die cut the pattern and then put foam on the small diamond die cut pieces to give them dimension.  I then cut the Daisy flowers with the Succulent Framelit Dies, cut them in half  layed them on top of each other.  The centre is the little cherry from the Build a Cupcake Punch, which I sponged with Crushed Curry Ink after cutting the stem off. I then arranged the flowers and stems on the background and finished off with the Sentiment.

  1. Fabulous dimension Susan on your wonderful card. Stunning design and really very beautiful x.

  2. WOW! Amazing card Sue! LOVE those gorgeous layered daisies against the beautiful green background. I would never thought of adding foam to all those little pieces ... that takes patience, but a fantastic result. You should enter this in Craft Stamper Magazine - Take It Make It challenge! xx

  3. I love the bright green background with the white daises over the top which contrast beautifully Susan, and what a great idea to die cut the inked background piece with the diamonds and then given them extra dimension before insetting them. A beautiful card. x

  4. Your daisies are so pretty against the watercolor and die cut background, Susan! This is a beautiful card inside and out!

  5. A breath of spring, this is one beautiful piece. The dark dimensional background really make those daisies pop out. Truly refreshing and quite the beauty. xxx

  6. So much to take in, in such a small space. Your effect is breathtaking. Now I have to go see what flowers I can cut in half.
