Celebrate with Sunflowers

Hello, friends!! I have a new birthday card to share today that I made for my neighbor, Lou. She loves working in her garden and she has such a lovely yard. Her pool deck is filled with potted plants and blooming flowers! Wryn Fairy Sunny Day from Tiddly Inks is the perfect image choice for her birthday card.

The other exciting news I have to share is that I just purchased a Brother Scan N Cut DX125e. This machine is AMAZING and I can't believe I have waited so long to get one. It makes cutting out digital images a breeze! It's been so much fun playing with it this weekend. It has renewed my love for crafting and I look forward to not having to fussy cut any more images!

I scanned the image and cut it out using my Scan N Cut. Then I colored it with Copics and popped it up over some die cut leaves for dimension. To add a little sparkle, I used diamond stickles on the fair wings.

If you use digital stamps or if you prefer not to spend money on coordinating dies to use with your stamp sets, you really need to consider getting a Brother Scan N Cut. The new DX125 model is whisper quiet which is another reason why I went with that model.

I hope you enjoyed this card and it inspires you to get crafting. Thanks for stopping by!!

  1. I do believe this is as beautiful as your neighbors garden. How nice of you to do this for her and make it so personal. Thanks for sharing your talents with us at Seize the Birthday!

  2. Your card is gorgeous. Love the colours used.
    You have coloured the image perfectly xx

    I have a Scan N Cut CM300. I have had it a few years now, and I can honestly say I have had a play once and its stayed in the cupboard!!
    Good idea to use it to cut digi images.
