Dies have always been one of my favorite tools … from word dies, to coordinates to stamp sets - the sky's the limit for adding fun, and dimension to a card front.
Today, I combined the two for the CAS Mix Up Challenge - February 2019! I hope you won't tire of my use of this Leaf Canopy! Today, I've stamped, and water-colored one of those die-cut branches, lifting it up off of my panel with foam squares for added dimension.
You'll also notice a 'new to me' Spellbinder's Hemstitch Die - I may wear out my ancient Cuttlebug using it ... I'll chance it! Popping it up on a gray [vs white] card-base makes it shine even brighter.
Thanks for the visit - it always makes me...
Edited to add such a wonderful surprise... thank you!
The leaf canopy die looks stunning and nope I will never tire of it. Such pretty colours of water colouring and a very striking and beautiful CAS card with wonderful dimension. Love that hemstitch die cut and the grey card base too x. Thank you for adding this eye catching card to The CAS Mix Up challenge Gallery x
Such a pretty card! Love the green shade on white!
That hemstitch is fantastic...I have an oval one and a rectangle on the way from Spellbinders. I cannot wait to play with them. You are also the reason I have those leaves on order. Bad Bad Bad girl....(hmmmm you or me? lol)
YOur card is fabulous, and that hemstitch I think makes for a great unisex card panel. Always an inspiration.
Goodness, I think I need a new die! The hemstitch looks awesome and the leaves seem to glow with the bright green!
Oh yeah!! dies hold my hart too! : ) This is so pretty friend! I love the incredible coloring you achieved.
You stole my heart, Michele. That hemstitch die is the perfect compliment for that vibrant leaf canopy so beautiful watercolored. Such a beautiful CAS design. Love it.
Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up! xx
I once remember telling my late sister-in-law (aka:stamping buddy) why do I need an expensive die cutting machine and dies, I'll never use them...HA was I WRONG!! You use this set all you want Michele, it's a pretty one just like your card!
This is glorious Michelle, just love your card, fabulous die and colours
I do not use this stamp set enough... but now I know that I do 'need' the coordinating dies lol. What a fabulous design Michele!
WOW! Gorgeous card Michele! LOVE your beautifully watercoloured leaves and die-cut branch. Lots of amazing dimension having it popped off the card front. LOVE the hemstitch border die ... geesh ... my wish list is growing again! :) It's really pretty and just the perfect accent to your card. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx
Gorgeous! Both the leafy image and the hemstitch die!!
Simply beautiful!! I have this hemstitch die and LOVE it myself!!
Perfect CAS design, Michele! I love how you blended your shades of green on the leaves and your 'Hemstitch Border' is fabulous! I think I need this die :) I also love your pale gray card base...so pretty, my friend!
I love that shade of green, Michele, and will never tire of it or your leaves. I've been looking for something like that hemstitch die and will be checking it out.
Totally delightful design, love every element you used. Thanks for joining us this month as CAS Mix Up.
Wow....so clean....so pretty......and I will never tire of Leaf Canopy! Beautiful card!
Yep, I love that hem stitch frame and your branch has such pretty watercolor leaves! Love the serene feel of this card, Michele! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up!
Such a refreshing color combo, Michele! I love your Leaf Canopy. The gray peeking through the holes of the frame is so tasteful. Thanks so much for sharing this beauty at CAS Mix UP!
Oh that die creates such a gorgeous frame and those leaves? Just stunning! So sorry I haven't been visiting lately - I'm taking a bit of a step back from crafting for a bit.
What a gorgeous frame, Michele (added to wishlist, thank you!) ... a beautiful way to show off those deliciously vibrant, spring leaves ... a splendid card! Hugs, Anita :)
