Scrappy Cat® (Distributed by Darice Inc.) is an internationally recognized company and brand in the paper crafting world, known for it's stylish patterns, co-ordinating products, and innovative stamp designs. They are a licensed designer and brand via Spellbinder Paper Arts, producing a variety of die designs for them in their signature style. It is this style that provides you with dies with versatility....make flowers that are pretty, simple, elaborate, chic...or bold and modern, grungy and shabby...the final flower is up to you.
As part of my Six Inch Square Blog flower tutorials I will be looking at each flower kit and showing how you can create a basic flower using just the dies from each individual set...and then later on I show how I mix them up to create even more designs

The second card uses the flower die cuts in a slightly different way and with more subtle shabby chic style and colouring. A lovely 6x6inch vintage patterned paper was the inspiration for which I picked out the soft yellows, creams and red to follow through in the embellishments. This paper was slightly distressed with Distress Inks by Tim Holtz and then simply matted on to co-ordinating red and cream card stock. A strip of my favourite music score grosgrain ribbon is set horizontally just below midway and echoes the music score print within the main paper design. The frame for the stamped sentiment (another clear self cling stamp by Paula Pascual) is made up of a black and red card stock cut using Spellbinders Picot Edge Circles from the Nestabilities Decorative Elements series and layered with foam pads to raise up and give dimension.
