Winners will be announced on Tuesday, June 17th!
Imagine Crafts New StazOn Pads from Tsukineko
Stencils and Dies Prize Package
Here's my creation for today:

 
   It is about as close to Clean and Simple as I am going to get.  The colors were chosen because of the ribbon, and are actually a much closer match than they appear to be in this picture.  I used the Dreamweaver DG 743 Stylized Dahlia die on a piece of Vertigo from Imagine Crafts.  This was the hardest thing to do on this project.  The dies aren't really designed to cut through thick plastic, but it made a nice score line.  I had to use a craft knife to assist in removing the Vertigo.  I decided to leave those inside petal shapes attached on top and just bend them outward.  I did this to add different colors and textures.
    I ran the LG 743 Stylized Dahlia Stencil through my die cut machine with the Stamping Details Rubber Embossing Mat and white card stock.  I colored the image with sponge daubers and Radiant Neon Ink in Electric Yellow, Electric Green and Electric Purple.  I also ran a little Electric Purple around the edges, both on the cardstock and the Vertigo.  I put adhesive under the area that I was going to put the ribbon.  Lastly, I added the gorgeous May Arts Solid Reversible Dots (ED-1) Ribbon that started it all.
Just Imagine the possibilities of what everyone else has created!
 
Dream It Up!
