Hello again. I have a couple of cards as variation on the current theme inspired by Inkspirational:
The theme is to use purple and gold, and so I turned to my ‘Rose Flurries 3D die set‘ from Altenew. I had a little play with them when I first got them, but took the opportunity this time to really have a play.
There was a lot of die-cutting – and no stamping! I had four variations of colour of purple, as I had a pack from Creative Expressions. I cut all of the layers of the roses in all four colours, and placed them in a variety of ways – some with the dark colour on the bottom, some with the dark colour on the top, and then some more just putting them in any old order!
I then cut the leaves in Creative Expressions gold card, but I didn’t layer them up, as I liked the look of them as they were.
The first card is the flowers and leaves layered onto a plain white background, but I added some detail to the background on the second card. This time I took the Altenew ‘Gradient Stripes cover die’, and cut it out of the gold card, then cut the ‘Watercolour stripes cover die’, and placed that on top – that way I had some gold in the background – but not too much.
I must say I enjoyed the faffing and fiddling when doing all that die-cutting, and even enjoyed the gluing part of it – though at times the flowers were sticking more to my fingers than each other……
Here are the cards at a different angle:
I tried to show the glimmer on the gold card, but it is really difficult…..

Gorgeous gorgeous cards. I love your sense of color. Very inspirational.
Thank you very much Gail. 🙂
Two beautiful cards! I love how you chose to do the gold foliage with the purple flowers. Really lovely! Thanks for sharing with us at Inkspirational!
Thank you, Shauna. 🙂
These are gorgeous, love the different purples and the gold really sets it off. Thanks for sharing 🤗
Thank you very much. 🙂
These are both great cards and I love you used all the different colour purples. You are very creative at arranging these dies, to me they look so complicates! I like the graphic look to your card for Ink and how you have used the gold selectively here. Thanks for joining Ink
Thank you, Sandie. Having the correct card colours was helpful. 🙂
