Just a Note

Hi Folks,  
When I first received the Quilt Cuts I die and the Country Charm stamp set from Wplus9 Design Studio in my goody box from Kim, I have been wanting to see if my crafting mojo would allow me to come up with something.  I mean, after all, I used to be a quilter.  However, I've been in the mood to play with the all the wonderful colors of ink sprays from Dylusions Ink Sprays and of course Tim Holtz Distress Inks.   My dilemma…. how to incorporate it all!
Now, to you that might not seem mind boggling, but to me….. well, it took me a while.  But here is what I came up with:

 I have been in love with the blue and green colors, especially the blue-green color combo that can be achieved using the Dylusions Ink Sprays.  I absolutely love these and yes, I own all the colors!  But what that means is that I have oodles and oodles of spritzed and inked tags all ready at my disposal.  Pulling several colored tags from my stash, I stamped the grid designs from the Country Charm set randomly onto the tags and then ran the tag through my die cutting machine with the Quilt Cuts I die (on a side note…. really love they way these dies cut!). 


And being on this color kick, it should be no surprise that I would use papers from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 2 Breeze pack.  To add a bit of color, I added a large button from Buttons Galore Tangerine Tango.  I do tend to over analyze and had to force myself to move on or chance ruining what I had accomplished thus far.  Since I had several die cut pieces left over, I decided to use a couple of these as a type of bracket for the sentiment panel:

Truly, at times I am die-cut challenged it seems, however I don't let that stop me from trying!


Be sure to check out the eP SHOP, new product is being added daily and Kim has made it easy to see all the new product in one glance with a What's New tab.
