I often see interesting images in everyday objects. I see smiles in the inner workings of my toaster, the front of cars and my razor! Cloud shapes are very entertaining. And occasionally I see odd things in the yard or woods only to find it's just a leaf! When I first laid eyes on this die I immediately saw abstract flowers!  I added a "thank you" sentiment with a bold font to go with my chunky abstract flowers.  Lastly, I added a pretty bow around the bouquet!

I get a kick out of extending my stamps and dies by finding different ways to use them!  Now here is a project featuring the same die but this time I am using it in the way it was intended!  I stamped this gorgeous sea on the lower portion of the card then die cut the splash on the upper layer. It's peaceful to look out past a body of water at the horizon, hence the calming sentiment!  But, I used only the first word of the sentiment by masking off the rest.

  Lastly, I added Wink of Stella to the sea for a dash of sparkle!

  Now here's one more look at the items I used today.


  1. Gorgeous cards, Ang! I love the flower bouquet... very imaginative! And a beautiful water scene featuring the splash!

  2. Love the way you have used the die differently, lovely cards.

  3. Both cards so very nicely done, and creative! I like how the colors pop in the first one!

  4. That is a cool die & you're so creative making 2 totally different cards with it!

  5. Wow, Angie, the first card is gorgeous! I LOVE how you've used the die and love the beautiful colors! It's stunning, and I love the second one. Such a beautiful die! Hugs and love! xoxo

  6. Oh what a great use of the stencil Angie - love that you 'saw' flowers in it, as well as the use for which it was designed - when i saw it over water, I thought of a whale spout too....


You make my day with your sweet comments!!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
