Dahlia's for mom...

Ok Mom, I know you'll see this. And maybe you'll get lucky and this will be the card that actually gets put in the mail - we'll have to see! ;-)

I got my new goodies from PTI this week and immediately had to play with the new Dahlia's stamp set and matching dies. OH MY GOSH! WOW! SOOO easy to use, lining them up was a piece of CAKE! I love the look of neatly cut out flowers, but HATE the work, so this was perfect for me. I cut my cardstock first, then stamped the image, and colored it with copics. I can see I need to expand my collection some more since I didn't have ANY of the right colors to go with the PTI papers, but it turned out ok.

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch (# 131) and on the inside I even got to use some ricrak I cut with the new rikrak die!! LOVE it!! I used some SU! dp with polka dots and added a couple of buttons so this also qualifies for Lisa Johnson's Poppy Seed challenge to use polka dots, buttons and light moss.
I think you'll see a lot more with these dies and set in the coming weeks...I haven't even begun to get this out of my system yet!


  1. Beautiful Jana!!! I just got my goodies today but didn't have a chance to play yet - this sure inspires me!! Love the way you colored your dahlias!! :)

  2. Really pretty! I love how the bit of black really sets off those flowers!!

  3. Wherever did you get this "plan ahead" gene from. It is a beautiful card and whether or not I get it, I love it today because it's a "not for anything" day. XO MoM

  4. The coloring on the flowers is incredible. And the sketch is fantastic too.


I love reading your comments, thanks for leaving me some love!
