Faith is...

It's hard to believe that Simon Says Stamp's STAMPtember celebration is coming to a close! My card today features a new die, Quadrangle Frames, that they generously sent me to play with. It was so fun to use the inlaid die cut technique for these frames. Those small pieces in the corners did present a bit of a challenge. They liked to wander around my craft desk. This set is also a great paper saver because the small die will fit inside the larger one when you are running them through your die cutting machine. You not only save paper but effort since you are able to cut both sizes at once.

I used foam squares to pop the frame panel over the sentiment and sunflowers. The sunflowers were colored with Copics and a couple coats from a Wink of Stella Glitter marker add some shimmer. Some black pearls finish off the card front.

Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (white), The Kraft Outlet (kraft)
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye (Remarkable 6x6 pad)
Stamps: Robyn's Fetish (Sunflower 2 digi image), Our Daily Bread Designs (Quote Collection 4 cling stamps)
Ink: Versafine (Onyx Black)
Copics: E25, 31, 35; YG03, 05; Y13, 15, 17
Tools/Embellishments: Simon Says Stamp die (Quadrangle Frames), Zig Wink of Stella brush glitter marker (clear), Queen & Co. pearls 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Outlawz Monday Greeting Challenge - Anything Goes (as long as it has a sentiment on the front)
Digi Chooseday Week #39 - Use Something New (these dies are new to me)
Scrapbook Blessings Club - Anything Goes (Optional Twist - Use your favorite technique - one of my favorites is the inlaid die cutting technique)
Eureka Stamps Challenge #160 - Anything Goes
V's Sweet Ideas Challenge #38 - Favorite Technique (I really like the inlaid die cutting technique and I like copic coloring)

Thanks again to Simon Says Stamp for their generosity in sending me this die set and allowing me to participate in their STAMPtember celebration!
