We're having a DIE-ING FOR SPRING BLOG HOP Mar 30 to Apr 3rd using Suzanne's newest dies - love them. She came out with 3 - Believe, Thanks & Hello.

I'm also using a quote stamp, part on the outside and the rest of it on the inside from Quietfire Design  and some eCuts available on the Silhouette onLine store

("Keep Your Faith"); die ("Believe"); eCuts (Fairy "Garden Fairy Tag"); (ampersand "Live Long & Prosper")


Die cut the word "Believe" from 110# white cardstock

I used Distress acrylic daubers (Seedless Preserves, Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw, Chipped Sapphire & Peeled Paint), lightly brayered the colors to merge them (ps you can still see some of the circle marks from the dauber tops on the pulled print... so don't merge too much), lay my die cut word - reversed (it needs to be backward) - down on the gelli plate, pulled a print, pressing down to get the paint all over, then removed the die cut word. (ps see pic at bottom of page - a nicely painted die cut word as a result of the gelli printing - an added bonus for another card...)

Used a dark blue Prisma colored pencil to add shadow lines on the word. Then added blue dots using Liquid Pearls "Ocean Blue"

Used a ruler to tear/distress the edges and in some areas Tim's distressing tool. Adhered my decorative layer on to pink textured cardstock then edge to edge on my white card.

eCut the "ampersand" from white cardstock and colored with the Sapphire dauber. adhered to front.

Masked of part of the quote and inked the rest with Versafine "Blue Lagoon", removed the masking and stamped, then clear embossed.

Stamped the mushroom (Chocolate Baroque "Autumn Edges") using Versafine Black Onyx. Colored with a cream, white and brown Prisma colored pencil.

eCut the Fairy, colored with the Sapphire dauber, dried, then applied PVA glue on the wings and sprinkled with Stickles dry Glitter "Star Dust". Adhered to card front.

On the inside stamped the mushrooms (Chocolate Baroque "Autumn Poppy") using the black, colored with Prisma colored pencils. I had a 2nd fairy, colored with the Sapphire, wings glittered.

Stamped the rest of the quote, masking the 1st line, inking with the black, removing the masking, and stamping.
