Dainty Delight Die Cutting Technique Challenge - Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop

 Welcome to Corner of Plaid and Paisley where I have been playing with the Dainty Delight Dies from Stampin' Up! to make this beautiful, soft, pastel enchanted garden card.

I am hoping with the Stamping INKspirations group where the theme this month is a technique challenge.
If you haven't been to my blog before - Welcome!!  
I love to die cut and I love layers - so this was a fun challenge for me.
I had been making a bunch of easter items for a craft show I am going to be doing and had a ton of scraps left over - so I went to town with my scraps and the Dainty Delight Dies.

I used the on-line Exclusive DSP - Hello Irresistible 6" x 6" paper for my background. 
I cut some of my stems with Soft Sea Foam and the other with Vellum paper.  Then I just cut a variety of colors for my flowers - layered the stems, leaves and flowers on my DSP - cut it down to fit the frame in from the Fabulous Frames dies- adhered the frame- and then adhered it to the card base.

At this moment - both the Dainty Delight Dies and the Hello Irresistible DSP are showing Currently Unavailable - however - the Dies are due to come back in stock March 13th and the DSP on April 3rd.

I kept the inside simple but embellished with a few die cuts - the bee is from the Queen Bee dies.

No ink was used - just paper, dies and a tiny bit of glue adhesive.

Let's check out some more Die Cutting fun!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.

  5. So pretty and delicate. I love how the layers of flowers add depth and texture to your design.

  6. Clever to show off just how much you can do with just paper - it sure is an enchanted garden! Those die cut flowers are so pretty.
