Gorgeous Garden Dies

It has been a bit since I posted.  I didn't know I was going to do it but I took a mini break.  Why?  It felt like I forgot how to stamp or at least stamp anything  I would want to share.   It seemed like everything I made was not good.  Was it really bad?   I am not sure, I just lost confidence which led to me overthinking things.  It was the opposite of flow.  I wanted to get over this feeling so I decided to focus on creating simple projects and let the stamps, dies, and paper do the work.  

This week the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge is a color challenge.


I tried a few different things and they were not good so I turned to the Gorgeous Garden dies to help me.  These are standalone dies which means they are not paired with a specific stamp set.  They are beautiful and  I used the leaf pattern before here.     


This was an easy way to use the colors for the challenge.   I cut the die in Moody Mauve CS and in Misty Moonlight CS.  At first I didn't have the Misty Moonlight flower centers.  I think the addition of them was the right decision.   They add a little more color and define the flowers.  The sentiment is from the Darling Details stamp set.   The circle is from the Stitched Shapes dies.  The 3  gems are from the Tinsel Gems Three-Pack.


I cut a strip of the Misty Moonlight CS to decorate the inside of the card.  Depending on where you cut the strip, you may have some loose pieces that you will need to adhere back into place.  I think this looks so elegant and really dresses up the inside of the card.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie & Mary Design team created for this challenge and thank you for stopping by,

Great color combo even though I'm not a fan of the Moody Mauve. This new die is lovely. Love your card.
