Make it Mondays

This weeks Make it Mondays was masking with dies. 
This was a fun challenge for me because while I use my dies frequently, I have not used this technique. 
I opted to use my Flower Fusion # die and masked with aqua mist, orange zest and hibiscus. 
I added a hibiscus center using a dot from Dot Spots
The background on the flowers was made by using Tin Types in hibiscus. 
I used the Flower Fusion #1 stem in simply chartreuse and the sentiment as well (it is in the top right corner, it did not show up well in the picture!) 
I distressed the edges and added a ribbon in ripe avocado before adding a strip of patterned paper on my spring rain card base. 
 I am really please with how this card turned out.  Enjoy!


  1. your card is bright and cheerful and pretty. i like the colours you chose.

  2. I love the pairing of the ribbon with the stamped stems/leaves...and the fun polka dot edging!

  3. What a lovely card. I really like the stamping on the flowers.

  4. Fun! I like all the textures that your stamp choices create!

  7. Your card for MIM turned out beautiful. I kinda had a hard time with this one. But you did great.

  8. This is a really sweet card. Fun colors. I love the use of tintypes to give the flowers texture. If I had that stamp set, I'd have to try it.
