Be Yourself

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday. Thank you for your kind comments about my new design team. You all are the best!

This week at Glitz, there's a color challenge--light pink, light blue, gold, and white. The digital team is also sharing projects using the Wild and Free Paper Pack and the Wild and Free Element Pack 2. Both of these kits are on sale today as part of One Buck Wednesday. Woo hoo!

The color challenge was optional for the Digital DT, and I decided to play along:

Be Yourself

I love making round cards, and I decided it was time to make another. I die-cut the base, added some pink and gold mist, and layered papers. I used a pink and yellow paper and the horses paper from the Wild and Free Paper Pack. For both papers, I lightened the papers to fit with the color scheme. The blue bokeh and pink stripe paper are from the new Carpe Diem collection.

For the die-cut, I used the "Be Yourself" digital element:

I'm sharing the image so you can see what it looked like before. I selected the letters and removed the color (hit the backspace key). I saved the image and opened it in the Silhouette Designer Studio. I traced the image and die-cut it out of both white cardstock and PTI's Linen Vellum.

Here's a close-up:

Be Yourself

For the finishing touches, I die-cut the flowers using Paper Smooches Flowers Dies with wool felt and the same vellum. These dies are a must-have! I love the different combinations. I stitched through sequin for something a little different. ;)

If you like the die-cut and papers, you can check out the One Buck Wednesday sale (today only). Also, there are more projects using these collections on the Glitz blog today.

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
