MIM and September SFYTT

Its been a while.  First I was busy with a new job, then for the last week I've been without Internet.  Everything is back to normal and I felt inspired by the latest Make It Monday video as well as the September Sketch For You To Try

 The sketch this month was once again mah-velous.  MIM was using acrylic paint to stamp.  It just so happened that I still had some Lumiere (silver acrylic paint) and so I grabbed my A Little Argyle stamps and set to work.

The floral center is Bloom Builders 3 die.  I am having some trouble getting the blooms out and had to use a craft knife to get the pieces out from between the petals.  Some of them come out easy and some are more difficult.  If anyone has a trick to using it I'd love to hear
Colors are Concorde Crush, Whisper White and Basic Black

Thanks for stopping!


  1. Gorgeous , love the paint background. Most of my flowers have come out nicely but a few have not. I use the die face up then the paper or felt ,then B plate and then card stock on top of that and run it through a few time. Hope that might help you. Love your card

  2. Love your card. I don't have the bloom builders 3 but try using a sticky tape lint roller, I've heard some use this. Good luck!!

  3. Beautiful card, Maureen! Great job on the technique and choice of colors.

  4. Your background looks almost metallic. Cool. Great job.
