He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

Oh, was I excited when the idea for this card came into focus!
So many things all just fell into place at once.


See the petals that have been plucked off?
Do you remember my stamping bargains?  Some of the goodies I occasionally pick up from my Stampin' Up! demonstrator are $1.00 Bags full of the most wonderful scraps ever.  The die-cut flowers and stems you see on these cards were in those bags, just begging to be used.

I have many more of these die cuts, in various colors, so that I can make multiples of this card.  How convenient.  :)

The petals that have been 'plucked' off are little cast-offs from using a Bigz Lattice die from SU.  These little ovals fall out of the lattice once you run it through the Big Shot.  (I'm telling you, I save almost EVERYTHING!)  I simply ran a Lovely Lilac SU marker over each one carefully to give the petals a natural appearance, shading some of them a bit.



This card is being entered into the following challenges:
  • Flourishes FLLCAUG10 - Kids' Games (this is 'He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not')
  • Flourishes FTTC78 - to use no embellishments
  • Aud Sentiments #8 - to interpret the word 'Relax' (hey, if I had lots of free time, I might just pluck petals too!)
  • Splitcoast Clean and Simple #79 - gardens
Hope you enjoyed my latest creation!

Happy Stamping,
Colleen

'Love this idea, Colleen. Gee. Maybe I SHOULDN'T part with my scraps! (Just kidding!) I'm SO glad you use them. XO

I love what you did with your "scraps". I now have a project for using the parts from the lattice die. I just knew I would find a use when I bagged and saved them.

Wow, Colleen, these cards are awesome!! I just love your idea for the child's play challenge at Flourishes. And aren't you lucky to have received these great die cuts in your scrap packs?? Plus, GREAT job recycling the negative bits from your lattice die cut!! Those made perfect petals. Great job on ALL of these challenges. You certainly rocked them today :)
