Cherry Blossoms

Good Morning, so glad you dropped by, I am sharing my post once again over at Stephanie's Roses of Inpsiration , if you get the chance stop by her blog and check out all the great posts.

For the life of me I can't remember the name of the technique I used here, but I tried once again to cut a portion of the image by hand and then add my die to cut the rest of the shape and I still can't get the hang of it, this time I feel it turned out better than last time so maybe I just need more practice.

I layered two of the border dies together and inked through the die to get the color in there.

Stampablities -- Cherry Blossoms, colored w/markers
Rasberry Road Designs-- Love lives here paper
Spellbinders -- Standard circles, Picot edge circles and A2 Scalloped Borders Two dies
Taylored Expressions -- Designer Mini tags die
Technique Tuesday -- Happy Birthday sentiment stamps
Kaiser -- Pearls

After getting many days of rain our grass has just taken off  as well as the weeds so we have a lot of outside work ahead of us today before the next batch of rain comes at the end of the week.  Hope wherever you are you didn't get hit by that bad weather.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and let me know you dropped in,
Have a great week,

It's call the out-of-the-box technique, and you did a fantastic job with it. I always have trouble knowing how far to cut into the image to be able to get the die where it needs to be. Beautiful coloring on the image, too!
