Same Die, Four Different Cards

Happy Saturday!! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I am here with some cards I created using a new to me die that I bought in December but have not used. The dreary weather we have been having made me pull it out and play with it. Instead of making my one card I made four cards.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Sweet Tulip Die as my main inspiration. Then I did a couple of challenges to help me along.

My first card I created a birthday card.

I did some ink blending for the ombre behind the flower and then layered three die cuts to  give the flower some dimension.

I stamped a sentiment from Memory Box's Best Life Typewriter Sentiments in black and die cut it using a PaperTrey Ink die.

I am entering this card in the Just Us Girls Challenge #476, which is a photo of an amethyst, hence the purple theme of my card.

My next card I created another purple card using the same die but die cut from black paper.

This card was really simple. I die cut a piece of pattern paper and adhered it to a Neenah Solar White, A2 card base. I then stamped the sentiment over the top.

I added the flower and covered it in Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss.

I finished it off with some purple gems

My next two cards are a pink color and I am entering them into the Flower Challenge #29-Use Your Latest Stamps and Dies.

For my first pink card, I die cut the flower out of black and colored some of the pieces from the flower on my first card that I didn't use. I wanted ti give it a stained glass look

I then adhered them over a top folding, A2 pink card base that had a white die cut panel already on top.

Next I covered the flower with Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss and added a sentiment from Altenew's Label Love.

To complete the card I added some pink confetti and a pink gem.

My next pink card was kind of a fluke. Again, I used Copic Markers to color in the inside of the flower.

I then adhered it to a card front that had some pink and kraft cardstock on top. I chose to leave out the background and let the kraft show through the back.

Again, I added some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss over the pink and green in the flower and then covered it with Ranger's Glossy Accents.

That is all from me today. I thank you for stopping by and will be here on the blog tomorrow with some other challenge cards I hope to create tonight.
