A Warm Hello...

A Warm Hello to you all!  I'm happy to be here, posting for Die-Versions.  My cards today are featuring dies from the April release.  Both were fun to create, and I hope they give you a smile or two!

This card was my very first attempt using modeling creme.  

Supplies:  Die-Versions Whispers DVW-348 'Pebbles Background' Die, Tiddly Inks Image, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Perfect Papercrafting tools (see sidebar for details), Copic Markers.

To begin, I die cut the fabulous Pebbles Background to use as a stencil.  Seriously, love this die!
A piece of cardstock was cut to the same size.

The next step was to place the 'stencil' over the cardstock.


Then I quickly spread the modeling creme over the top of the stencil.
I immediately removed the 'stencil', and scraped the excess back into the jar.
Of course, since I am a hoarder, I saved the 'stencil' for another project!
The modeling creme takes only a short while to dry.  Once dry, I just sponged
some pretty ink colors on, and used the beautiful pebble background to create this happy card!


The white panel was cut to card front size, and I die cut the border on each side. This would
have been fun to just leave the white space in the center, but I couldn't resist using a fun digi image,
and doing an 'outside the box' type of center panel.  Don't you just LOVE these drops?
Here's a giggle for you - after the card was entirely finished, I realized that the teardrops were 
upside down!  Go ahead and laugh - I'm sure you've had days like that!

Supplies:  Die-Versions Whispers DVW-351 'Teardrop Punch Border', Bugaboo Image, Copic Markers, Perfect Papercrafting Rulers (see sidebar for details)

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope that you are all well, and enjoying your week.

Hugs & Blessings,
Patti J.
