My projects feature the new Asters and Leaves and Decorative Vase Custom Dies along with the beautiful Blushing Rose Collection papers. I love all the ODBD paper collections and this month's has fast become one of my favorites!!
To make my first card I started with the base, die-cut and matted the Sentiment Panel directly from the Blushing Rose Collection Papers, then die-cut and popped the Vintage Flourishes frame on top. Next I set out to 'decorate' the card with the Decorative Vase and Asters. These Asters are made using only the smallest flower, center and leaves. I also made some little roses using leftover pieces from the Quatrefoil die plus the little clover/flower from the Ornamental Crosses die.
Here's a close-up of my first card:

I love that this verse is included as part of the papers - it's hard to read in my photos. It says:
She is clothed in strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.

My next card uses the same new release items, along with some other ODBD favorites. To make this card I started with the base, die-cut the Quatrefoil pattern in the new Blushing Rose Papers, adhered that over a second layer of the papers, then added some lace at the bottom. Then I die-cut, curved, sponged and decorated the Vase. I used liquid pearls on the embossed areas then after that was dried covered the entire vase in matte glaze. Next I started die-cutting all the fun flower elements.

I just cannot get enough of these amazing Papers, and honestly I could sit and make these flower arrangements all day and never tire. The For You tag is also a part of the Blushing Rose Collection papers so all I did was die-cut and edge with a bit of liquid pearls.
