Hi my dear crafty friends!
This is my first post on the Die-Namites Dies Blog and I am so proud and happy to be part of this awesome design team. I'm in love with Die-Namites Dies for a long time, because their designs are so unique and the quality is WOW! I've never had any problems cutting through heavy weight cardstock although the dies are sometimes very intricate (that's what I love the most).

Today I'd like to share a mixed media pillow box which is decorated with the "Spring Doily", the "Large Ivy" and the "Heart Branch" from Die-Namites.
|Spring Doily DN-1159|
|Large Ivy DN-1171|
|Heart Branch DN-1039|
The maple leave is a stamp which was stamped with Neocolor II watercolor crayons. I painted the stamp with the crayons, added water with a brush and the result is a lovely watercolor look of the image.
The pillow box was cut out of kraft paper with the Silhouette Cameo. I gave it some texture by adding Gel Medium through a stencil. After this was dry I colored the whole box with Faber-Castell Gelatos.
The "Large Ivy" is cut out of watercolor paper and painted it with the Neocolor II crayons. I created a palette by skribbling some of the paint onto an acrylic block and used water with a brush to pick the color up. To get more interest I added some color splatters as well. I used kraft cardstock for the lovely "Heart Branch" and some patterned paper for the awesome "Spring Doily".
I hope you like my little pillow box. Don't forget to use the 15% discount code with your next order over at the Die-Namites Dies Online Store. Use susanne15 during the checkout process.
See you all soon and happy crafting, Susanne.
