I often see interesting images in everyday objects. I see smiles in the inner workings of my toaster, the front of cars and my razor! Cloud shapes are very entertaining. And Occasionally I see odd things in the yard or woods only to find it’s just a leaf! When I first laid eyes on this die I immediately saw abstract flowers!  I added a “thank you” sentiment with a bold font to go with my chunky abstract flowers.  Lastly, I added a pretty bow around the bouquet!

I get a kick out of extending my stamps and dies by finding different ways to use them!  Now here is a project featuring the same die but this time I am using it in the way it was intended!  I stamped this gorgeous sea on the lower portion of the card then die cut the splash on the upper layer. It’s peaceful to look out past a body of water at the horizon, hence the calming sentiment!  But, I used only the first word of the sentiment by masking off the rest.

  Lastly, I added Wink of Stella to the sea for a dash of sparkle!

    I love this die. When I first saw it I didn’t see ‘splash’ I saw pretty wings. I love how your designer turned it into a stencil and used it as a bouquet of flowers. Very innovative. It makes the die more flexible.

    Love your interpretation of the flowers out of the splash die! I try to find other uses instead of the intended use of my stamps and dies as well. Beautiful cards!
