Something New Challenge

We have a new challenge theme starting today at
Dies R Us challenge blog and our theme is
'Something New'
can be a new baby, new home, even a new crafty item
just so it is, well NEW!

Grab our Badge!

I purchased this beautiful 'new to me' die on my last order to

Poppystamps - Dies - Stitch Wreath

I seem to go into these kicks of certain kinds of dies
and right now I am into any kind of a 
stitch or stitched die...just can't get enough of them lol!

I also have been having a 'love' for what I call a 'negative' die,
meaning a die that cuts a 'negative' into your card
instead of a die cut shape.
So, I really struck 'gold' when this die had both!!

I die cut the wreath on a card stock base,
 then simply added the bright green card stock behind.
(makes the card pretty on the inside as well)

Impression Obsession - Dies - Fancy Ornament

comes with its own separate little bow
which is what I used for the wreath.
A pretty green gem was added to that.

Tutti Designs - Word Set - Hello

I cut it twice and stacked it, 
leaving a bit of the underneath of the pink to show.

I felt it still needed something, so I added a few sequins.

Make sure to pop on over to the
Dies R Us challenge blog and see all the beautiful
'new' and inspiring creations from the design team.

Oh, gosh, this is everything I love -- the negative cut, the bright green and pink, the wreath, the stitching, the simplicity. There are too many things I love and this really is a small part of it, but, ohhhh, so pretty!
