Good Saturday morning. How many times have you ordered something twice by mistake? I really don’t do it very often but when I do I slap myself on the forehead with a big DUH! My mistake is going to make one of you very happy. I mistakenly ordered two Spellbinders Grand Rectangles sets this past week and instead of sending one back I am offering it as blog candy as a thank you for all of the wonderful support you show me week after week.
All you have to do to qualify to win is leave a comment on this post telling me which of Susan Tierney Cockburn ’s flower dies are your favorite. You will have until 5:00 PM EST on Friday, July 26th to leave your comment.
Speaking of Susan Tierney Cockburn’s flower dies, I have another flower to share with you today made using the Black-Eyed Susan die. I paired it with soft sky blue paper and a piece of the Sun Kiss Collection designer paper. I wanted the flower to be the main focal point and added other elements for added dimension and interest.
I cut the Poppystamps Grand Madison Window and Picket Fence in blue and attached to the card base using mounting tape. I cut the Fresh Cut Grass and added to the fence. I cut the Memory Box Butterfly Delights, colored them lightly with Pan Pastel and added markings using my vintage photo distress marker. I attached the flower and leaves using glossy accents and added the butterflies for the perfect finishing touch.
Here is a closer view of the flower. I think it looks so real. And it is so easy to make.
Here is a side view to show the dimension of the flower.
Thank you for stopping by. Please remember to leave a comment on this post to qualify for the Spellbinders Grand Rectangles set blog candy. I will announce the winner next Saturday morning, July 27th.
