Shiny Happy Die Cuts

Oh August, I am sad to see you go!  But it's the first Sunday of September which means it's Challenge Chicks Day!  This month our hostess is Jeanne and she challenged us to use DIE CUTS!  

I made a birthday card using both positive and negative die cut pieces with Papertrey Ink products, and this sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches blog by Linda Callahan...

I used a negative piece cut with the Hexagon Cover Plate as a mask and then sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Yellow Daisy and Cherub Pink, and Heidi Swapp's Color Shine in Teal.  Then to match the sketch, I used the Happy Hexagon stamp set and stamped in 2 rows over the misted hexagons.

Then I used some "positive" die cuts :)- the Headline Alphabet and hearts cut from felt using the Love Lives Here dies.  I think this card will be perfect for when my girls are invited to friends' birthday parties...not too many layers and very shimmery and sparkly!

Don't forget to upload your project at Splitcoaststampers using the keyword "CHXSEP13" or link your blog post to our Facebook page HERE.
