If you follow along at Nicole Heady’s blog, you might have noticed that this card was inspired by this week’s MIM #200: Layering Cover Plate Die Cuts. My head was almost exploding with ideas inspired by this challenge! 😉 You can check them out here and here too!

MIM #200- Rainbow Layered Cover Plate Hearts

Hi! Here’s a card that I made for Make It Monday #200: Layering Cover Plate Die Cuts with Dawn McVey.

I cut out ROYGBIV card stocks with PTI’s Hearts Cover Plate Die. When I watched Dawn’s video on Monday, this idea came to mind instantaneously and then came together very quickly! I’m playing this over at SSS’s Monday Challenge H is for… (Hearts!) Speaking of hearts, you should see the pile of little die cut hearts I have! Thankfully there are always garlands to be made after Betsy’s inspiration last week! 🙂

I was inspired to try some other ideas too. Have you ever noticed how one card can lead to many more?! If you’d like to, you can check out some more of mine, inspired by this challenge, here here and here!

Make It Monday #196: Colorful Card Corners, Lily

Hi! Welcome to my new blog. 🙂

This week’s Make It Monday is another fun and inspiring challenge.

Danielle challenged us to “dress up of corners”. For this card I used PTI’s Painted Poinsettia stamp set and adapted it to make a lily-like flower:

To make the stamens, I created a stencil using one of the vine dies from the Painted Poinsettia die set.

I tried a watercolor technique, using these photos as inspiration.

 The poinsettia stamp has 8 petals while Lilies have 6 petals…..

 so the flower on my card is not scientifically accurate. 😉

This card was a big experiment and way out of my comfort zone, but I’m pretty happy with the result.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at the first card I’ve posted here at honeybeelane!

I hope you’ll come back and visit again.
