Hello Everyone!

What a fun time I had using both my Die~Namites Dies and Canvas Corp products to make my mixed media card.  The girls teased me because I actually tried to get a little messy!

I started with a Skinny Card from Canvas Corp; LOVE this larger size as you can do so much with it.  And yes, it even comes with its own envelope!  Next, for my background panel, and got out a new and never used
 Crafter's Workshop stencil, Cherry Blossoms.  I first sponged a pale yellow ink over the stencil,
 then spritzed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, in Sunflower, for an awesome glow.

My flower was made using Die~Namites Winter Sunflower Die.  I cut it out from Canvas Corp Yellow and White MiniDot Reverse cardstock and backed it with white cs.  I cut the Winter Sunflower a second time from Tattered Angels Pure Mistable Paper- Boucle in Cream- and then misted it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Stone.  Lastly, I sponged the edges in gray ink and slightly molded the leaf edges. 

My sentiment is stamped and heat embossed on Tattered Angels Mistable Papers- Corduroy and layered over the stenciled background.  The flower was adhered to the right lower corner. 

I added foliage to the background using the new Small Ivy Die~Namites Die 
And Knobby Branch Die~Namites Die.  

I cut a few of the Small Ivy leaves from some Canvas Corp Canvas and tucked
them in amongst the other leaves. 

Lastly, I added some berries to my twigs, using Canvas Corp Home Basics Cord in Yellow.

I hope I have inspired to get crafty today and maybe even try to get a bit messy!  :)

This is my last post with Die~Namites.  It has been a pleasure to design with their gorgeous dies, to work with such an amazing team and to share with you!  Thanks so much!
