Floral fun with Die Cut Divas

Hey crafty friends - I'm sharing the card below at Die Cut Divas today, plus I have bonus cards along with supplies listed here.

Who doesn't love flowers? Rachel Vass has designed some beautiful digi images and sponsored us this month at the Divas. I can't resist hearts and chose her Floral Heart file.

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Solar White; Spellbinders A2 card; 
Paper Studio glitter; Basic Grey True Love
Digi - Rachel Vass Floral Heart
Dies - A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop Set;
Sunny Studio Thank You Word Dies;
Memory Box Perky Love (retired) - found HERE at Frantic Stamper)

I sized the heart wreath to fit an A2 card. Printed and colored it with Copics, then fussy cut. Added it to a stitched rectangle using foam tape. Glued the panel to an A2 card, then added the pinked strip. The strip is a fully pinked label from a slimline set and I just trimmed off the ends - a great way to stretch those slimline dies. Die cut the sentiment, combining words from two sets, and glued to the heart. Done!! Big thanks to Arlene for gifting me the Love die - a must for a Valentine birthday girl :)

Now for some bonus cards! I sized the Floral Heart to fit a full page, printed it and then fussy cut only the three flowers. I colored them in different tones and found papers to coordinate.

Additional supplies: Die - Hero Arts Spring Branch (retired)
Stamp - Hero Arts Everyday Sayings

Additional supplies: Paper -  Lawn Fawn 
Embossing folder - Memory Box Stunning Mandala 

Additional supplies: Paper - Hero Arts Antique Ivory;
Paper Studio Vintage Valentine
Die - Frantic Stamper Slimline Frames
Park Lane gems

Several supply items are getting first play today - the Love die and the MB Stunning Mandala embossing folder - so I'm entering Darnell's January NBUS Challenge. I hope she and her hubby liked the third of my jumbo flower cards!

We'd love to see you in the January Diva Challenge gallery! You have until 9pm Pacific Time on 1/31/22 to enter. Just be sure to include a die cut or embossing folder along with the theme of flowers. You don't need Rachel's designs to play along, any flower will do! But I hope you'll check out her designs if you enjoy the digi format. I love her gorgeous flowers!!

Thanks for stopping!

Three really great cards and a great showcase for that digi stamp. Being able to size them how you want is the great benefit of digital stamps, which you have demonstrated so well here xx

Wonderful cards Linda. It's great that you can resize a digi stamp and get such a different look. Love the heart card and then the extras look amazing.

How pretty your floral heart is Linda! I love the way you showcased a different way of using it too - the three cards using the enlarged flower are gorgeous! Vicky x

That floral heart is so beautiful & so is the card! Love your other cards, too, Linda, especially the one with that gorgeous embossing folder!

That floral heart card is so elegant and beautiful. And how creative to enlarge it and create another trio of beautiful cards.
