Friday Die Day

Hello friends

This week has flown by and Friday Die Day was upon me before I really had
chance to prepare something fully so a slightly abbreviated FDD this week.

I'm featuring Sweetheart Swirl,
this is one of the new Becca Feeken dies from Romancing the Swirl Collection.
Becca's designs are very distinctive to her romantic, elegant style.

There are four dies to the set and the approximate measurements are:

Frame Outline: 4.55 x 5.95 in 11.60 x 15.10 cm
Frame Pattern: 4.35 x 5.75 in 11.00 x 15.60 cm
Oval Insert: 2.05 x 3.20 in 5.20 x 8.10 cm
Swirl Accent: 1.70 x 1.70 in 4.30 x 4.30 cm
 https://hopeandchances.co.uk/shop/amazing-paper-grace-collection/romancing-the-swirl-collection-sweetheart-swirl-pre-order-arriving-early-may/
 I used the largest swirl die (with the small oval for the aperture)
to create an oval white frame onto a matted card.
I opted for BRIGHT yellow polka dot paper for the middle,
sort of making up for the sunshine that seems to have disappeared!


The flowers are Blooming Rose and Rose Buds,
coloured with distress inks, spritzed and shaped.


Clustered flowers with a twirl of narrow ribbon and twine.


Tiny 'thanks' sentiment nestled among the flowers.


It's so bright isn't it!
Makes a nice change for me, I could be coming away from my white, ivory
and mirror card phase and entering the world of COLOUR...
watch out everyone!

Items used today with clickable links:

Blooming Rose (due back in stock soon)

The full Romancing the Swirl Collection can be viewed here.

I'm planning either Facebook Live or a video this weekend,
keeping the boys busy!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

Take care friends.

So great to see the way you use these dies, I'm afraid I find Becca Feeken's cards always far too fussy for my personal taste so it's good to see they can be 'toned-down' somewhat and still look beautiful. No offence intended ;)
