Stamp Off Grace's Gateway Dies

Greetings creative friends.  Susan, Buffy and I
are back for another challenge.  
This week is all about "The Color Purple!"  

I have been posting cards with the the Grace's 
Gateway Dies (Jan-June 2020 catalog) and different
background DSP.  In this example,  I paired the Peaceful
Poppies (page 25) with these delightful dies.  I picked a 
segment with a lot of purple, and just a pop of Poppy!
I really like using the Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing
Folder to perk up cards.   Highlighting the pattern with some
VersaMark helps the card pop.  Finally, the sentiment from 
the Honey Bee set was cut 
out with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies on page 20.

Now that you've checked out my purple project, 
please click on to enjoy Buffy and Susan's
wonderful cards.  I'd also like to wish my dear friends, Buffy, Susan and all of our "visitors" health and peace of mind,
 as we move through this challenging time.

On the Adventure with Sending You Thoughts

Given the challenges we face right now, I had to
get out the "On to Adventure" set on page 28 of the
annual catalog.  The images always make me smile.
I paired this magical lady with a sentiment from 
"Sending You Thoughts" (SAB page 11).  This
set has the perfect amount of sarcasm.

Grace's Gateway Dies with Magnolia DSP

I've been trying different DSP with Grace's Gateway Dies
(Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalog).
Using the Magnolia Lane DSP makes it easy create the gate background.  In this example, the flowers come from the Royal
Peacock Stamp set and Detailed Peacock Dies
(page 192 of the annual catalog)
