Enjoy the Little Things – by Darsie Bruno

Darsie’s creativity flew way over-the-top on today’s card. I love, love, love when one can take a stamp or die set with a specific intent and use it for something totally different. That’s what Darsie did today. She created this stunning floral card from a heart die set and a stamp set that is primarily farm animals (with a few accent stamps). It makes me both chuckle and smile! Take a look:

Talk about gorgeous!

Darsie did some beautiful ink blending with Altenew inks for the softly colored background.

Enjoy 500x456

Here’s a closer look.

The black leaves and curvy lines creating the bottom layer of this floral are accent stamps included in our Farmhouse Signage stamp set (the farm animal set), while the yellow and white flowers were created with heart dies from the two die sets in our Farmhouse Series.

The leaves tinted green are from a standard leaf/floral die from Spellbinders.

You can see Darsie’s post on her blog here.

Farmhouse Signage DUO 589x500

This is Farmhouse Signage. There is a stamp set and coordinating die set.

Can you see the leaves and curvy lines Darsie used for the base of her floral?

She also used the small heart in the die set for her tiny yellow flower center.

These are fun add-ons that coordinate with all the sentiment sets in our Farmhouse Signage Series.

They can be purchased separately or as a combo offer.

SS-DIE013 Nested Pierced Hearts DIE WEB_preview 291x500

This is the Farmhouse Pierced Nested Hearts die set.

Darsie used the smallest heart die for her white flower today.

I love the delicate pierced edging detail and the somewhat plump shape of these hearts.
