I had sooooooooooo much fun choosing how I was going to
showcase these fabulous Phrase Dies.


I knew which stamps I wanted to use with this die and chose
STAMPlorations One Cool Chick. I think it's a perfect match.
It needed a background so I versamarked  the
ARTplorations Zen Hearts stencil with pink glitter.
Also added it to the surrounds but a little hard to see.
was cut from red card stock.
Finished by adding a black mat, attached to red card base 
pearls on her scarf and bracelet and a little bit of lippy.

This was pretty simple to make.
My background is a mix of Tim's Oxide Inks.
I then stenciled the ARTplorations Flowers 1
thickly with Gloss Gel Medium and
Pearl White Acrylic Paint.
Added my CUTplorations Life is Good 
die cut from the same card stock as my base.
touching it up with WOS for shimmer.
Gems were attached to finish.

and my last one I went all out
adding so many bits and bobs hoping I wouldn't
make a mess!

As you can see there is a lot going on with this one.
I used ARTplorations Retro Circles first inking
and sponging in yellow to add more colour
then added crackle paste.
I started my other background with
 lots of Brusho colours then I started adding
stamping and heat embossed images
from STAMPlorations Mixed Media Grunge
and STAMPlorations Scribbly Splattery Grunge
in a variety of colours.
I then stenciled ARTplorations Evolution
with white acrylic paint.
This was cut on angles and attached
adding the CUTplorations Art Happens die in yellow.

Wonderful cards. My fave is the one in the middle.

All great projects, but I really like the purple one with the white stenciled flowers. It's a beautiful way to display the die, and I love the colors you used on that pretty background.

These are awesome projects,
highlighting those sweet sentiment
dies! Love that sweet floral card!

Karenladd said...

These are all so creative and beautiful! My favorite is the first card with that cool chick image!

Cheri said...

Where to begin on these masterpieces, SS? The CAS design of the first one is as cheerful a card as they get. Makes me happy just to look at it. The second with the oxide ink bg and then the soft layering of the pearl paint gives it an ethereal feel. Simply gorgeous. Your third card packs a powerhouse of your talents with mixed media and design. Outstanding dimension and detail. The depth you achieved with your layering is stunning. Masterpieces, each and every one.

I left a comment yesterday but am not seeing it so will comment again. These are all just gorgeous but I especially love the Cool Chick Sunshine girl! The red and black combo is a favorite and that stenciled background adds extra fun.

SHartl said...

All three of these cards are awesome and so very different from each other. You show off how versatile these sentiment dies are in such a beautiful way. The pretty purple stenciled one is so artsy and that Cool Chick card is the best!
