And now, here’s Lisa to tell us all about her project…


I didn’t get a chance last month to use the gorgeous Leafy Vine Cutting Plate, so I’ve been anxious to create something with this pretty die!LisaH-BeYOUtiful 1

I first spent time doing some ink blending with some blue distress inks (Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch). Check out the mini cubes that Taylor has stocked in the TE Shop. Those little inks make it easy to collect lots of Distress Ink colors. I inked up the panel first and then cut out the panel with the Leafy Vine Cutting Plate.

The whimsical flower from Under The Flower Stamp & Die Combo. I first colored it with pink and then I changed my mind and stamped it again and colored it up with some bright green and yellow Copics. Don’t be afraid to change your mind as you are creating!

I used the small Frame in Frame Cutting Plate to cut the main image panel from Sugar Cube cardstock. I then used my Distress Markers on the sentiment from Free Spirit. I love this one. It’s so inspirational, one word written out in a way that speaks volumes…brilliant!

I added a touch of glitter to some of the leafy vines and the flower with a Clear Wink of Stella marker. A scattering of Rainbow Bright Sequins in yellow and white finished off the card.
