Working with Mini Dies - Class Projects (Post 2 of 3 today)

Hello friends!  Back again to share some more class projects with you!
I will have one more post going up today and hopefully I will have everything finished by tomorrow! Yay!  I just want to make sure I'm getting full value of my class and learning everything I can.

So for Day 4 class, we are working with "mini dies":
This project was a fairly easy one to do and we were able to get two cards created from one technique!  I created an ombre look to my background and used the sentiment and hearts dies to place them on my design.  The one on the right is popped up with foam tape and I've just glued the left over pieces of the die to a card panel for the one on the left.
Everything here is from Lawn Fawn. :)


For my second technique I used various dies to make a background:
I pulled out those luscious water-colors called Zig Kuretake Gansai Tombi and created a gradient looking background on watercolor paper.  I used several various medium, small to tiny mini dies that I had in different collections and die cut them from the water-color paper I made.
The sentiment is embossed on black card stock with white embossing powder.  I took a die cut star and added to the sentiment area.  I also have vellum behind my sentiment.

Here is a closer view of the sentiment area with the star.  I have covered this star with some glossy accents and tucked it between the word die.

Most everything I have used on this card is from Whimsy Stamps.

Get your sunglasses out for my last one:
This was a fun card to do!  I think the bright colors are really fun!
I had this background paper FOREVER and it was nice to pull it out and use it!
If you notice the star die cut, it's the same one I've used on the above card.
I've popped up the design paper and attached it to a piece of pink glitter card stock.  I've also die cut the centers of some of the other circles and popped up the star with foam tape on the remaining circles in the design.  Then I just added my sentiment and rounded the corner.

I would like to add this card to the following:
Little Red Wagon - "You're a STAR!"

So I hope you've enjoyed the my class projects so far!!
Get ready for post #3 coming up in a little bit!!  Thanks for stopping in!!

These two cards are like negative and positive. Great idea, the cards are kind of similar and so different.
