Scrapy Land Blog Challenge #19 - Anything Goes

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful first week of June!! It's time for another fun challenge at Scrapy Land and it's everyone's favorite: Anything Goes using a brand of die that Scrapy Land carries...there are over 40 to choose from!!


As you've probably noticed, I have been on a "Secret Garden" kick lately with my cards :) I wanted these to look like a couple strolling through a hidden garden, and another couple cuddling on a secluded bench.


For the backgrounds of the cards, I used Memory Box Trellis Border dies, and popped the top layer up with foam tape. For the loving couple, I used an Impression Obsession Sitting Couple die and covered the top layer with sugar coating. The bench is a Spellbinders D-Lites Garden Bench. The grass is a Poppystamps Grassland Border die. Enjoy the Moment...which I didn't realize was a bit hard to read in the picture...is stamped on a Taylored Expressons Banner Stacklet die.


For this card, I used a Frantic Stamper Joseph and Frantic Stamper Loretta die. Joe and Loretta are strolling on a Sizzix Brick Wall Sizzlits die. Tucked among the blooms are Memory Box Chloe dies and Memory Box Botanical Stems dies.The sentiment was stamped on vellum, heat embossed  and cut with a Taylored Expressons Banner Stacklet die.


I am entering these in the following challenges:

1. DL.Art - June Linky
2. Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday

Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Scrapy Land to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your project using a brand of die that Scrapy Land carries!! I can't wait to see what you create :)
