Die Cut Sentiment Challenge - 2 Gina K Designs

     Looking forward to summer, I decided to create a bikini card (my own hand cut design). One of my favorite things to do is to find new, unexpected ways to use my stamps. To create a printed-fabric look, I used a lotus stamp upside down (Gina K Designs Lovely Lotus). 
     Designer Tip: My perfectionist side, which I don't always enjoy insists on my design being perfectly centered. So, first I stamped my lotus onto cardstock (Passionate Pink and matching ink Gina K Designs). Then, I cut out the top and bottom of the bikini as you see here.

          I stamped a bow in black and die cut the sentiment. 
***********************
I'm entering this card in the monthly card challenge over at Gina K Designs. There is still plenty of time to enter your own card. Here is the link to the rules. At least go look at all the cards. Some amazing artists there.
          Inside sentiment is from Forever Flowers collection (Gina K Designs). 
     Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you have a great day.
     May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands,

Fairy Tale Castle Easel Card

 

     Today, I have a card to share that I made using a die-cut collection from Anna Griffin. I discovered it one day when HSN was having an all-day-crafting event. They sold out so quickly that I didn't get one. They re-ordered,  and now I've got one of them. I love Anna Griffin dies! They are always the best quality. This large collection (and another I have of Anna's) came with it's own magnetic sheet.
     No sentiments came with it, so I used one of my faves from My Sentiments Exactly. 
Designer Tip: 
         This card did take quiet a long time for me to die-cut. I knew it would, so I die-cut enough pieces to make several cards. That turned out to be a great idea. I tucked each card away with enough matching scraps of cardstock so that I could stamp whatever sentiment I want to use when I'm ready to send one of them out.

     Thanks so much for stopping by again today. Hope you have a beautiful, sunshiny day! May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands.
