NBUS Challenge #6

Hello friends.  Playing along with Darnell's NBUS Challenge #6 today, because in all her wisdom, she knows she's NOT the only one who hoards stamps, and we ALL need a push sometimes to use what we buy!  And fortunately, I'm no exception!!  So last fall I HAD to have the new Single Roses dies that SSS put out, and then of course I got busy with Halloween, Fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Winter, Valentines, birthdays, etc. and forgot all about the rose dies until looking for something else.  So thank you Darnell...perfect timing!!  Take a look:



I loved the simplicity of these dies, and that was the reason I bought them in the first place!  After putting this CAS card together, I cut out a bunch more of these flowers and leaves and stored them right along with the dies, so when I need a quick and simple card...smart thinking, right?!  :0)  Anyway, I started by blending a little bit of Tumbled Glass distress ink on my background first, and then added the die cut flowers and leaves that I had "smooshed" with Royal Velvet, Winter Wisteria, and New Leaf inks.  Next I die cut the "hello" (PTI's Wet Paint) 4 times, glued together and added to the card front along with stamping the "friend" in black ink.  A few sequins and this card was finished.


So grab one or two of your NBUS stamps or dies and play along at Darnell's playhouse right HERE.  And thank you Darnell...you really are the BEST!!!  :0)

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)

  2. Oh Marcia, those Roses are awesome. They can be used for every Holiday by just changing the color combination! Love this CAS beauty!

  7. What a divine card you've made, Marcia! These dies remind me of the "scribble" flowers that PTI produced, which I have and which (ahem) are NBUS. I love them on other cards, but when I get them out I just stare at them. Now I will simply CASE you because I'm loving that soft blue blush on your background (is it okay if blue blushes, too?) and then the vibrant lilac hues of your flowers, so lovely with the green of the leaves! Thank you for this inspiration, for your kind words, and for playing in my NBUS Challenge #6!! I think you're pretty awesome, too! Hugs, Darnell
