Joyful Flower Die Cut and Stencil for CAS Mix Up

Hi there.  I'm glad you've stopped by!

It's a new month and a new challenge at CAS Mix Up.


My very talented and dear friend, Joanna is hosting our challenge this month.

I die cut the Joyful Flower from Penny Black from Neenah and used the piece left behind
as my stencil.  Using a sponge dauber, I added color through the stencil.

I used another die cut flower to pop on the card as well.  This time I used
some background pieces that ad been smooshed with ink and shimmer spray.
The flower head was done with Melon Mambo and Vanilla Shimmer.
The leaves are from Wild Wasabi and Gold Shimmer.

The rest of the pink flower background became the backing.
I love how it shows through this hemstitch frame.

I added a few prills to the centers of the flowers for texture.

My mixed media are Die Cut Stencil, Sponging through Stencil, Die Cutting, Smooshing, 
Shimmer Sprays and Stamping

This is a great way to get more mileage out of our dies.

Our fabulous Design Team and Guest Designer, Ina, have some wonderful
examples of stencils from die cuts.  I hope you'll check them out and join us at


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

So pretty, Bonnie. I love that you have combined the stencilled flower with the die cut one, and those colours are screaming spring to me.
BTW, the challenge is not yet live on the challenge blog.

I love this PB die. I love the flower repetition, one cut out and the other made by stencil. It's very clever that you used the negative from die as a stencil.
Hugs,

Wow... what a fabulous way to use the die cut as a stencil Bonnie and then to use part of the die cut too. A creative and stunning card x.

Barb Ghig said...

Your card is absolutely gorgeous, Bonnie! I love how you showcased the positive and negative parts of your die and how you framed everything with your Hemstitch die...so elegant! Beautiful color palette, too! xx

Jo said...

I love this Dancing Duo. You always frame to my liking, repeating the blooms colours daintily behind the hemstitch. Prills, wow, what dimension. I have to look into those :D This die is precious and perfect for the challenge. xx

Pat said...

What a great look Bonnie with the stencilled and the die cut flowers next to one another, such a pretty look with the rectangular die cut pattern to frame them and a strong look for the sentiment too. x

How wonderful and clever to use both the die-cut and the stencil cut from the die, Bonnie! The flowers are so beautiful and I'm sure the shimmer is prettier in real life. Love that you let the colors of the background show through the hemstitch frame. Beautiful design as always!

p.s. We were on the same wavelength, using the hemstitch die! :-)

Gorgeous stenciled flower using your die cut flower negative, Bonnie. I love how you added the pretty colored positive flower image to your card design for extra dimension. A beautiful flower design with your hemstitched die cut framing, my friend. Hugs, Nancy

I can't keep up with you this week! Great flower on your calendar page and I love the tuxedo look of the layered hearts on the Yupo with the Lindy's. The die cut background is so pretty. This card is so lovely and I like how you combined the die and the stenciled flower. It is such a pretty design and bright, happy colors.

Your design ideas and those "special Bonnie touches" as I call them always make me think "WOW". Interesting CAS Mix UP theme this month, which you took to an amazing level.

This is one of my favorite dies and I had no idea it had a matching stamp. Love how you designed this, Bonnie! What beautiful soft, spring colors too!

Loll said...

WOW! LOVE this card!! Of course, you had me at pink flowers. :) The stenciled flower with the die-cut flower over top make an amazing design. So much beautiful texture. The hemstitch framing is the perfect finish. xx

TK said...

Great idea, Bonnie, to layer your die over your stamp of the same flower!

This is so pretty. Love the stenciled flower and that you included the die cut flower also, both are colored so lovely.

This is beautiful. The die looks amazing used as a stencil and I love your colour choice. Nice touch adding the die cut flower over the top, and the frame looks so pretty xx

My Paper Epiphany said...

Great idea to add the die-cut over the stencilled daisy - so beautiful!

Susan said...

Love the layering of the die-cut flower over the stenciled one! Beautiful colours and great framing with the hemstitch die.

Bobby said...

I'm glad you added the die cut flower to the card to keep the stenciled one company, Bonnie. Those Prills really add a lot of color and dimension to the centers.

AlisonC said...

That is brilliant and so clever. You have so many little details which make a perfectly beautiful card.

Trina P. said...

So pretty, And so creative to combine the stencilled flower with the die cut one.

Daria said...

So very beautiful! Thank you for sharing the details.

papierelle said...

This is stunning! I particularly like that you used the flower once as a stencil and once as a die cut. Very nice idea.
