Freestyle Fridays -

I received several new dies in the last week and I wanted to take them for a spin.  I started with a piece of Bashful Blue (a rarely used color in my repertoire).  A piece of Everyday Enchantment DSP was put through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, unfortunately not very well seen here. 

To that, a Small Window die in Bashful Blue was attached with mounting tape.  The flowers were made with a Fancy Blossom Die.  To make them curl up a bit I used a stylus with a small tip and applied a light circular motion to the center and the petals magically curl up.  To the center a small rhinestone from Jewels Basic Rhinestone was applied.  I find it easier to apply these with the tip of an Xacto knife.  Works like a charm.  I strategically cut the Nestled Bird to ensure that the little stars would be in the middle of the DSP.  The hello is from a ProvoCraft die cut in Riding Hood Red. 

********REGINA'S MISSION********

Regina this week your mission, and as always if you choose to accept, is to create using several of your favorite dies.  The catch is to make your layout landscape like above.  I can't wait to see what you come with up!

See Ya Next Week!

Wow Julie this is so gorgeous and I think it is my favorite card of all. Not that I am surprised because your work is always so creative and you explain your techniques so very, very well. I am going to try the same technique and see what I come up with. Keep up the fabulous work dear friend... I can hardly wait to see what you come up with next time.
