Mimi’s Ta-Da! Diorama! Celebrating the Year of the Dragon

Mimi created a totally brilliant Ta-Da! Diorama! card to celebrate the Lunar New Year which starts tomorrow! It’s the Year of the Dragon and Mimi hid a super cute dragon behind the Fancy Lattice Backdrop!

Mimi filled her creative design with many symbols of good luck for the new year. Gold coins, firecrackers and a plate of oranges decorate the card front with pretty flowers. Mimi loves to shop her stash to find clever ways to use what she has. Check out the list below for the sets she used for this card.

She cut the front panel of the Ta-Da! Diorama! with a Circle Stackable, then she used the Embroidery Hoop cut from Metallic Gold cardstock as a frame.

Mimi cut the Ta-Da! Diorama! and the Fancy Lattice Backdrop from Textured Canvas cardstock from the pink pack. The lattice looks so pretty framing the scene that is revealed when the diorama is opened!

Inside, Mimi featured the dragon from Dream Big with more coins and a bright red bag! She used Smitty’s ABCs to stamp the year, then she used a sentiment from Let’s Bokeh to wish a Happy New Year!

Here are the sets that Mimi used to make all the decorations:
Gold coins: circles from Bubbles of Joy and Let’s Bokeh, middle square is from Plan on It
Plate of oranges: large lily from Toadally Awesome, balloons from Yappy Birthday, leaves from Toucan Do It
Firecrackers: crayon from Color My World, rounded square is the pat of butter from Let’s Toast and the wick is from Mice on Ice
Flowers: Stinkin’ Cute, More Magic Messages
Bag: Ho-Ho-Holidays

I love this brilliant card, Mimi! Thank you so much for inspiring us today!

Grace’s creativity is on display with this lovely trio of Delightful Daisy cards!

Fancy Lattice Backdrop/How You Bean? Shaker Card

Delightful Daisy is a perfect match for our How You Bean? mason jar! Here, Grace created a shaker card using the How You Bean? Shaker Add-On and pretty vellum!

For the daisies, Grace used a combination of Shimmer Pastel cardstock and Pixie Dust Sparkle! She added color to the Pixie Dust petals using Dried Marigold and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink. To these petal pieces, Grace added a layer of clear embossing powder for a glossy finish! As an added detail, Grace die cut extra daisy stems to add inside the mason jar; this makes the flower stems appear longer!

To create the pretty cardbase, Grace started with a panel of Perfectly Plaid Remix Nadia12x12 paper. Then she layered the Fancy Lattice Backdrop and a Stitched Rectangle Frame!

Quilted Backdrop Shaker Card

For her second gorgeous card, Grace create another clever shaker element! After she cut the Quilted Backdrop from Mermaid cardstock, she cut the base of the daisy 3 times in the backdrop. She backed these openings with acetate and then she layered on the daisy outline and flower center, leaving the petals and stems clear.

The cute little bee from Meadow Backdrop: Portrait makes a sweet accent! Grace finished this delightful design with a greeting that combines Oliver’s Stitched ABCs with “sunshine” from All the Clouds. I love how she white embossed the word on vellum and gave it a unique torn edge.

Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up Get Well Card

Grace created a special get well design that is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face! She brought back the daisies and bees to fill a sweet Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up! She used acetate to attach the bees so they look like they are buzzing around the flowers!

To add this sweet greeting, Grace combined Get Well Soon Border with Oliver’s Stitched ABCs in rainbow colors of cardstock!

I love these beautiful cards, Grace! And the wonderful ways you used Delightful Daisy! Thank you!
