Miss You!

Susie here with a new post for Die-Namites.

The brand new Blooming Carnation die is one I think you will be using over and over on your beautiful cards. And the most wonderful thing about dies is the plethora of ways you can dream up to use them.

I thought I'd show you a technique today that perhaps you had not ever considered.  Here is my card and I'll tell you all about the technique.

I die cut my carnation twice - once in red and once in green.  I cut the green flowers off the green stem and discarded them. And then snipped the red stem from the red flowers. I took the flowers and covered them with Versamark ink.  It was so easy - I just smooshed the flowers into the ink pad.

Once the flowers were completely covered with the Versamark ink, I sprinkled clear embossing powder over them and heat embossed them.  Here is a close up of my finished die cut.  Aren't the flowers so shiny!!


I hope you will try this soon.  I would love to see what you make with Die-Namites dies and the different techniques you discover!
