Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog today! I am taking part in a special Blog Hop for the winners of the International Blog Highlights by Kylie Bertucci. Thank you ALL for voting for my project! The top ten winners are participating today and sharing new projects from around the world. Please be sure to visit all of the blogs of these amazing card makers.

My project is created with the two products that make up the Special Reason Bundle. Stylish Stems Framelits dies and Special Reason stamps have a timeless look of floral elegance. New products are fantastic and fun to use, especially when you have an idea of how to use them. In this project, I will demonstrate the steps to the way I best use these innovative framelits dies.
There are two dies needed for each unit. First, a detailed flower image cuts the petals into the paper. What is now left on the paper is a “negative space”, or the cut-away image of a flower. Next will come the corresponding die that will remove this flower image away from the card completely. Now you will hold in your hand, the flower image that is no longer a part of the paper that it was cut from. If this sounds a bit confusing, please refer to the video demonstration.
The die cuts can then be adhered to a project in whatever fashion you choose. I chose to pair the colors in Blooms & Bliss DSP with Rich Razzleberry card stock for an All-Occasion card.
Measurements for this project are:
Adequate scraps of Rich Razzleberry & Whisper White for making die cuts
Blooms & Bliss DSP: 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″
Rich Razzleberry layer: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/2″
Thick Whisper White card base is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
sentiment: Rich Razzleberry 5/8″ x 2 5/8″
The sentiment has been heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss powder and VersaMark ink pad. This gives a nice bit of texture to the card when it is held in your hand. Try using these dies with a different layout or color scheme and see the difference in the result. What can you think of to use these dies?

These components work together to make a versatile card design with pleasant colors. It will be easy for you to duplicate and try a new color scheme. Thanks for visiting my blog today, please make sure you visit all of the blogs for all sorts of new ideas.
Meanwhile, I hope you find a simple card design and make it your own.
