Spring Blog Blitz Begins!
by Jeanne Jachna

Wish-Dandelion-One
Oh what a great day for a visit!  We've got some new dies to share and that means we're having a blog blitz!  During the blog blitz we'll be showing projects made with the newest release and giving you a chance to win on every single post!  Today I'm sharing the new Dandelion Stem!
Wish-Dandelion
I started this card by making a colorful background of borders cut with the new Pretty Stitches die set.  The set has three borders with different stitching, and different shaped eyelet cuts.  I started by creating a panel of bright yellow paper and then adhered the stitched borders from the bottom of the panel to the top.  I  cut each border 1 1/2" wide.  I spaced the borders measuring 1/4" from the top of the cut hole in the border to the bottom  edge of the die that is layered above it. 
Wish-Dandelion-Five
Dandelions always get me thinking of when I was a child... we'd pick them when the heads were dry and full of fluffy seeds, blow on them and make a wish.
Wish-Dandelion-Four
I cut two of the Dandelion Stems so that I could snip some of the little seeds from one of them and make them look like they are floating in the air! 
Wish-Dandelion-Two
Do dandelions make you think of wishes too?  I'm wishing that you are the lucky winner of this pretty die! 
Wish-Dandelion-Two

Oh, Jeanne, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE your card!! You are so clever!! Your card just screams spring!!

This card is so bright and cheerful! Dandelions are a mother's first bouquet from her child and yes, I remember making a wish or two or more and watching my wishes float away in the breeze. Beautifully done!

Morning Jeanne, Wow !! this dandelion stem die looks like a 'firecracker' it is beautiful, the colours you have used in this petticoat-style background are so pretty, and the 'wish' die-cut is so apt. We used to do the same things as children, when they were white and fluffy we used to keep blowing the 'clocks'and make a wish, oh this has taken me back in time. Really lovely.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Your colourful borders background is gorgeous and I love that delicate dandelion stem. Need one of those cool rulers as well. Hugz

The white dandelion is perfect for off-setting the beautiful color choices in your cut border background. Nicely done!
