Mum Blooms

Hi Connie here with you today.

Now I know spring is coming and usually we think of Mums in the Fall but I just got these Memory Box - Magnificent Mum Floral blooms dies and had to use them from the new release. The Memory box - Windswept stems are new too and thought would look great with the mums.

First I cute the mums out of brown cardstock, then I applied them to a piece of paper that I liked the colors but wasn't a heavy pattern to it and loosely cut around them.

Since I only had 3 flowers I decided to cut off one of the stems and add it to the previous set to get the 3 stems I wanted. Dies are so much easier to adapt for our cards than stamping.

I also added a pretty border using the Poppystamps -- Tailored Stitches die and then took my distress inks and added a bit of shading to the borders to give it a bit of a vintage feel to the card.

In case any of the dies are out of stock at the time of the posts there is a tab you can click to put you on a waiting list.

Also you still have time to apply for the new design team for Dies R Us, you can find out all the details HERE

Here are the dies used in the card today.
