A Collection of Cards from Michelle!

Hello!  It's my last day this month as Guest Designer for CropStop and I'm playing with a whole pile of fun goodies from the store!

I embossed the die after cutting it and then popped it up on foam tape over the beautiful embossed panel.  Images and papers on these cards are digital images from Fred, She Said Designs.  I fussy cut two sets of tulips and popped them on foam tape on top of each other for added dimension.


For this card I switched out the images and then used the dies flat on the card.

 I flipped the embossed panel over on this card for an entirely different effect.  I cut the Memory Box Die and used it to frame my floral image which is colored with Copic Markers.  Love the Memory Box dies for their beautiful intricate designs.  They cut beautifully!   The sugar coated glitter brad is the perfect size and gives the flower some POP!


This card is fun!  For a different effect, I cut the San Marzano Border Die and then attached it to a panel of the same cardstock for a great textural effect.  Notice the border along the left side of the card?  Well, save your scraps, ladies!  If you line up your die straight when you cut it, you will get a second fun border to work with! 

I simply added a strip of the embossing to separate my die cut edges.  I just cannot get enough of the beautiful Memory Box dies! 


This is also a fun card!  Remember me saying save your die scraps just a second ago?  Well, check out the flowers on this card! I used scraps from the San Marzano Border die cut on the previous card to make frames for my flowers on this card!  I did toss the rest of the scraps, but if you see an interesting shape, don't be afraid to think out of the box and use those precious little pieces up!

I planted my flowers by using the Bamboo Shoots Die  I did snip off a few shoots and moved one sprig to a bare spot on my card.  Here I go remodeling my dies, but I like to make them work for me!
