CUTplorations #2 ...

Is it me or is the year whizzing by?  Here we are in November already ... and a new month means a new CUTplorations challenge over on the STAMPlorations blog!  Do you enjoy using dies in your card-making? Then this could be the challenge for you - this is the inspiration for this month:

I was inspired by the colours - purple and grey with a pop of red - and this is my creation:

I began by creating two panels - one in purple and one in red and die cut the flowers from the panels and also from some grey card.  The large flowers were stacked and adhered together to make thick 'chipboard-like' flowers.  I coloured some card for the 'awesome' and then die cut the word in grey card as well to add depth to the word.  I then combined all of the elements together onto the card base.

I used:
STAMPlorations - Trendy Spring Blooms and Matching Dies
                              - Awesome
                              - Mixed Media Elements
                              - Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangles
Distress Inks - Wilted Violet, Candied Apple and Festive Berries
Distress Oxide Inks - Wilted Violet and Candied Apple

I hope that I have inspired you to get out your dies and have a go ...



  1. Ahh, Wilted Violet. Love that color. And how you created those cool chipboard blooms for your design.

  2. And gorgeous it is, this lovely floral purple/grey and pop of red card of yours! Crushing over the 'chipboard' effect of your flowers! So inspiring and yes, definitely awesome!

  3. Super card, the colours look great in your floral spray. :)
