Enduring Beauty and Darling Details

It is Thursday and time for a new and last Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  Yes, you read that right, the last Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  The new name will be Create with Stamping Friends.  You can read about the changes HERE.

Here is this week's challenge.


I turned the sketch and made it into a portrait orientation to better fit the images I used.


I used the Enduring Beauty bundle.  I decided to color the beautiful image using Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive Stampin' Blends.  I think this is the first time I have colored the flowers with Stampin' Blends, I usually use the coordinating Enduring Beauty Decorative Masks to color.  Love that there are options.  

Let's talk about the little sentiment flag.  First the sentiment is from the Darling Details stamp set.  This stamp set and the coordinating dies are on the Last Chance Products list.   It is available for purchase while supplies last and/or April 30, 2024.  

The sentiment flag was cut using the Nested Essentials dies.  I used the #2 (#1 being the smallest flag die) die.  It is longer than I wanted so I re-cut the die to make it smaller.  


You need to line up the die so that the die fits into stitching along the sides.  You can feel it when it is seated in the stitching and then you can run it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. 


This is a simple little trick and it comes in handy when you don't have the perfect die for the sentiment.
