Pretty Lattice

Hi, Diane with you today!

I just returned from vacation, and had a beautiful package from Classy Cards 'n Such waiting for me when I returned home! Not only was it fun to come home to, but wrapped so beautifully, I didn't even want to open it!

But open it I did, and one of my new things in it was a
Spellbinders Foliage Lattice die. This is a 2 piece die set, allowing you to use just one die as I did, or using the second die to cut it out, (I will do that in another post)! If you look closely, you will see it also embossed a beautiful floral design.

Behind the lattice die I used Watercolored Memories paper by Ken Oliver. I love the way the color peeks through the lattice.

I added a few flowers, first stamping with Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose, then cutting out with the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Wings die.

I used just the smaller of the flower dies in the set and colored with PanPastels Flower Coloring Kit, and
forming my flowers with the Paper Blossoms Craft Molding Mat and Paper Blossoms Tool Kit. Each flower was finished with a Green Rhinestone in the center!

Thank you for visiting with me today!!

Want to plan ahead and join our weekly challenges? Just click on the Challenge Calendar label, located on the right side of the page. We would love to have you share your creative ideas! Invite your friends to play along! You could be our next Classy Cards 'n Such prize winner!

Thanks for stopping by!!! Until next time...
