Its that time of the week again and this week Ive selected some of the dies from the Californian Collection I seem to be following the relates at the moment as this was the third collection form Sue Wilson's first release of dies for Creative Expressions! I have loved playing with this collection and can see so many great ideas in it so you may see this collection popping up more!
I stared by cutting the background twice into a piece of vanilla pearl foundations card slotting the die back into the design to continue it as a square. I cut the centre out with the Beverly hills die and mounted this over midnight blue pearl foundations card. I do think it was when i bought this background die and cut out for the first time that I really feel for Sue's designs!
Next I cut the first three dies form the Beverly hills die in vanilla and backed it with midnight. I foam mounted this above background to create depth. I added a label from one of the other sets ( sorry not sure which one at time of writing) cut in vanilla in the centre and added s amped stitched flag coming form the aperture.
I cut all of the Faux Quilled blooms from midnight pearl card and the leaves ( from the same set) in vanilla and arranged these around the frame.
Finally I added a couple of stick pins made with the Stick Pin elements and added layers of the vanilla and midnight to make this 7.5 x 7.5" smaller than it looks, card!
