Hello crafty friends, Kirstynn here with another project to share with you all.
I'm not sure about the rest of you, but here in Utah, we are all starting to get a little spring fever. So of course that's reflecting in my crafty projects too.
I'm excited to share with you all this bright spring floral project I created using the Cherry Blossom Layering Dies from the most recent release. I absolutely love this layering set and the possibilities are endless. So lets just jump right in.
The very first thing I did here was cut out all my pieces in various shades of pink cardstock. I thought about doing solid white with some pink ink blended details. Specifically in the centers of the floral elements. But I ended up going with colored cardstock.
I wanted to point out something that I personally love about the LDRS die sets. Each of the dies has an outline on the storage sheet that comes with the set. I really think this is genius for a few different reasons. First, it makes it so you know exactly where to put the die back on the storage sheet so that they all fit. Second, it makes it super easy to see if you are missing a die when cleaning up.
The next step in this process was to assemble all of my die cut cherry blossom pieces. This is one of my favorite parts about crafting. There is something so satisfying about putting all these parts together to make something beautiful!
After everything was properly assembled, I used the Delicate Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Dies to cut out the bigger rectangle and the second to biggest rectangle. I layered those together and glued them onto an A2 card base. Then I grabbed my Cosmos Stamp and Dies set for a sentiment. I stamped that and cut it out using the coordinating die.
Next, I needed to glue everything down. I ended up changing they layout of the flowers here just to make sure I had it exactly how I wanted it. I also did end up ink blending some darker red in the very centers of the flowers using a small blending brush.
Lastly, I added some sequins and gems to the centers of the flowers.
I really loved how much dimension this set gives you when you get all the pieces assembled. There is so much texture in this card and I just think it adds a lot of interest in the project.
Happy spring everyone!
