Framed Blossom Branch

Hey there crafty friends - I have a post up at Die Cut Divas today featuring a card using a digi stamp by Rachel Vass! We're doing Frame It for the January challenge - such fun, hope you can join us!!

Digi stamps from Rachel Vass Blossom Branch
Other supplies: Paper - Paper Studio A2 card & Burgundy cs,
Ms. Sparkle & Co Woodgrain,, XPress it Blending Card
Dies - A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop
Other - Copic Markers, Crystal Stickles, Honey Bee Beach Vibe gems

You can see Rachel's gorgeous designs HERE if interested; Blossom Branch was my pic for my DT posts and I just love, love, love it!!

My wireless printer at home isn't speaking to my laptop so I tried printing at my parents' house. Their printer got a jam I couldn't clear - argh!! I reached out to teamie Arlene (A Bit of This and That) who printed several of the Blossom Branch images and sentiments for me - thanks Arlene!! She sized the branch & sentiment for an A2 card with plenty of border. I trimmed it down, colored it with Copics (C01, C02, G00, G02, YG45, E50, RV21, YR12), and framed with a stitched mat layer cut with the next smaller mat die to form the frame. Next I fussy cut a small stem from a different print of the image. Colored that and adhered so it connected to the other stem and overlapped onto the frame. Can you see where I connected it?? Looks pretty seamless in real life! 

So delighted to try some digis from sponsor Rachel Vass - love her designs!! No need to use her stuff to play with the Divas. Hope to see your card linked up - just be sure to use a die cut or embossing folder with some kind of frame and add to our Frame It Challenge by 9pm PST 1/31/21 (4 entries max). You'll be entered for a chance at our random prize - 3 digi stamps from Rachel Vass - yay!!

Thanks for visiting - happy die cutting and framing!!

this is so pretty, Linda - lovely color combo! my problem with digis is similar to the one you had - my printer won't take anything but 80# cardstock which is ok if i want to use copics but sometimes i'd love to be able to watercolor some of the lovely images available out there.

stunning Linda. You did an awesome job of adding the extra bit. I would never have known if you hadn't of mentioned it. I'm loving all of Rachel's images.

Wonderful. The blossom branch looks so delicate and thanks to the darker background paper it comes into its own!
