And even more 'Chloe'!

Anyone would think that I really love this die!!

I really liked the design of the card in yesterday's blog post, so I've used it again here, just tweaking it slightly. I embossed the top part of the card blank with white embossing paste using a Tim Holtz stencil. With another piece of cardstock I die cut a stitched rectangle & out of that a stitched circle, mounting it on the card base with 3D pads. A stamped sentiment & 2 die cut Chloe stems finish it off.

I entered a card on my blog the other day, here, into this week's 'Less is More' challenge but there wasn't really enough 'white space' on it to be classed as CAS. I think this one might be ok so I'm trying again!

Thanks for popping by & take care.

More 'Chloe' love

Here's another card using the Chloe die ...

A more clean & simple design this time, which I think makes the die really stand out.
Apologies for the photo ... I took it in the evening when the light wasn't very good. One of my aims in the next couple of months is to practice taking better photos!
I'm entering this card in the Just Us Girls challenge again, where it's colour week & they're looking for cards using teal, aqua & navy.

Thanks for popping by & take care.

Lots of love for 'Chloe'

My crafting mojo has returned in the last week or two so I have quite a few cards to share with you!
First one up is this one ... I've seen the Memory Box 'Chloe stem' die used a lot on Pinterest but whenever I've looked for it online it's always out of stock. Thankfully I've at last been able to buy it & here's my first make with it:

I have a few stencils now & I really like the textured detail you can get using them with embossing paste.

Thanks for popping by & take care.
