Hello crafty friends it's Joy here, I hope you are having a wonderful day! My project today show's how you can stretch your products. I used the coordinating dies from the A Beautiful Day stamp and die. I hope you enjoy.

On a white piece of cardstock, I directly rubbed a wintergreen ink pad on a diagonal from top to bottom. Then used an apricot ink and rubbed it on both sides of the green. I made sure to leave white space on both sides of the inking. I wanted more detail to the inking so I splattered a terracotta, ginger and gold metallic watercolor ink onto the background.
 
 
Once that was dried, I die cut the background with the frame from the Roses die set. Then I used two of the butterfly dies from the A Beautiful Day die set and die cut that from the inked background. I also die cut those butterflies three more times from white cardstock and glued them together for dimension.
 
 
I stamped the sentiment from the A Beautiful Stamp set with black ink, then adhered the butterflies in the open die cut areas on the inked panel. I adhered that to a white A2 card base and finished the card with gold sequins. 
 
 
I hope you enjoyed this project and feel inspired!
Hugs,
Joy Baldwin
