Having a D-Liteful Day

Crafting is a great way to relieve stress and after a particularly stressful day recently, I needed to craft to avoid going mad!

Luckily my new Spellbinders D-Lites order arrived and I was able to play!!! This is the result, 3 cards.......

Lily Bluebells

This card uses Spellbinders Blue Bells and Lily of the Valley D-Lite die S3-207 and Filigree Delight die S5-177 (one end has been trimmed off to create a vase shape) this was cut onto white card and coloured with alcohol pens.  The vase was shaded and stamped with Penny Black's new Lace Trims 30-181 and the sentiment is from Dahlias 30-159

Cornflower Vase

This card uses the new  Spellbinders Aster and Poppies S3-206 and Filigree Vase S2-028 D-Lite dies and On The Edge Die S5-168.   The flowers were cut several times, scrunched and layered to create 3D flowers.  The sentiment is from Penny Black's transparent set Tweet Tweet 30-156.

On the inside of this card I used the waste from the Aster and Poppies S3-206 die to do a stencilled chalk image inside and stamped the sentiment from Penny Black's transparent set Friendship 30-160.

And finally

Friendship Poppies

I created the card blank using Spellbinders Grand Squares LF-126 and cut the Poppies from Spellbinders new D-Lites die Asters and Poppies S3-206.  The gorgeous frame stamp from Penny Black; With Florish 40-241 was stamped with Memento London Fog ink and the edges sponged with the same ink. the sentiment from the transparent set Friendship 30-160 was stamped and red liquid pearls added to accent.

Feeling very chilled now!!!  If you want to be inspired on how to use the new Penny Black Stamp release, don't forget to hop on over to the Penny Black Blog here.
