Concord & 9th Bouquet

I love dies. Being scissors challenged, I love that many companies now have 
matching dies for their stamps. Most of all, I love stand alone dies.

Concord & 9th came out with a unique Bouquet die, and when I saw it featured
on Instagram, I knew I had to get it. Here's my card using it.

 I die cut the image from watercolor card stock and left some of the pieces intact.
I used Peerless Watercolors and did some loose watercoloring on the whole piece.

After it was dried, I adhered the piece to a top folding black card, then
white embossed the sentiment. I added a strip of striped paper along the edge
and finished off the card with a few clear sequins.

There are so many possibilities with this die--I can't wait to play with it more.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I LOVE that you admit that you are scissor challenged... It's a thing! This is Fabulous!

  2. Donna, I love dies, too! I must admit to being totally addicted to ANY and ALL of them ... this one has caught my eye ... and you are helping/not helping with this fabulous card - if you get my drift? xx

  3. Stunning card Donna. Love how those colors are so vibrant against the black background, and your stripes just relieve that darkness the right amount.

  4. Love the bright colors against the black!! It's hard to remember back when there weren't so many incredible dies for us to play with!!Big hugs.

  5. Gorgeous bouquet Donna! I love that company are doing both two, sometimes dies alone is all you need!

  6. I love this die too, although, looking at what you've done, clearly, I'm not using it to it's full advantage. This is stunning in it's splendid simplicity and fabulous coloring.

  7. This is gorgeous!!
    I'm all about the dies, too! Those scissors can certainly be tricky! ;)
