Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Who doesn't love flowers and this week's Friday Die Day features
a new collection available to pre-order Cinch and Go Flowers III.
Designed by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders and if
 you are a 'flower follower' you will know there has been Cinch and Go
Flowers I and Cinch and Go Flowers II - all beautiful.

It is a three piece die set but you will see that you can cut the petals
all in one go creating four die cuts.
The approximate measurements are:

Leaf Sprig: 2.55 x 1.05 in. 6.50 x 2.70 cm
Large Flower: 1.70 x 1.65 in. 4.30 x 4.20 cm
Medium Flower: 1.50 x 1.50 in. 3.80 x 3.80 cm
Calyx: 1.30 x 1.30 in. 3.30 x 3.30 cm
Small Flower: 1.35 x 1.35 in. 3.40 x 3.40 cm
Extra Small Flower: 1.20 x 1.25 in. 3.00 x 3.20 cm

This is how they look cut/embossed.


I've used watercolour white card and gone to town with distress inks.



I then mist them lightly with water.


And begin to shape.  I use my stylus tool and my fingers,
occasionally pliers.
The smaller ones I've really squeezed tight to create buds.


As there are readymade holes to the middle I've inserted stamens.
.
I've mounted a cluster of them on my card front with 3D Foam Squares.
My card features Tiara Rondelle, die cut this twice silver and then affixed
with a black shadow.
Another gorgeous design by Becca Feeken.


Some close ups of those flowers.

Papers are Kaisercraft Black and White Collection.
Music script for the background and used the die to cut the cut
the inner circle shape and reinsert it into the design.

Take care friends, wishing you all a brilliant weekend,
wrap up warm - apparently more nippy weather on the way.
