I have had emails asking if you have been missing my posts since I haven't posted for over a week. I had a fall the day of my last post and haven't been able to walk up stairs to get to my craftroom. I am still hobbling around and nursing bruises, but feeling better and happy to be back designing.
Today I worked with a few of Susan's CountryScapes dies. The card is 6x6 inches. I die cut the tag using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Tags and More 5 - Sunburst die. The bottom portion was covered with design paper. Next I created the pot of geraniums from the CountryScapes - Backyard 1 die set. It is very dimensional. The birdhouse was die cut from the CountryScapes - The Woods 1 die set, using design paper. The top and sides of the tag were sponged using Scattered Straw Distress Ink. To complete the tag, I added an ECD sentiment and glitter border stickers.
The tree was die cut using the dies from the CountryScapes - The Woods 1 dies. I wanted to create a flowering Spring tree, so used the petals from the Garden Notes - Hydrangea set. Around the flowers, I glued in some of the leaves from The Woods 1 die set. I used a die from the CountryScapes - Backyard 1 set for grass at the base of the tree. A kitty was die cut from the CountryScapes - Country Critters 1 die set and tucked in by the grass. The gold corners are also ECD stickers.
It is so fun to create scenes with Susan's CountryScapes dies.
