Today is about looking at your dies in new ways! I've used two dies, normally used for for other purposes, to created something completely new. Lets take a look at what the pretty Scallop Pinpoint Hearts and Flowing curves dies have become, shall we.

Ta-Da... a shamrock! The hearts were die cut from green and gold plaid paper (Anemone Plaid by Memory Box) then adhered on a slimline marshmallow card base to form the shamrock. A fancy shamrock needs a fancy stem. Enter the Flowing Curves die!

The curves of the scallops on the hearts left a little opening where the three came together.  I popped a Fairy Drop on to conceal it. A few more were sprinkled about the card for good measure! I found the perfect sentiment in the Whittle Wild Animals Sentiments set.

The playfulness of the curvy stem called for more added whimsy. A trio of sweet little Nordic Butterflies fit the bill nicely! They were created using deep green cardstock for the bottom layer and vellum for the top. The vellum was glued just in the center so the wings could be lifted.

I hope my playful card has inspired you to look at your dies differently and to create something fun. Thanks so much for stopping by today. We love it when you do!

What a fabulous heart shamrock with the curvy stem, Lisa - love, love, love it!! The sweet butterflies add the perfect accent to this amazing slimline!!

Oh wow--so creative and absolutely love this card, Lisa! I was just trying to remember how I made a shamrock years ago and I bet it was with hearts. The fancy stem puts this over the top! Love how you did the butterflies, too!

So clever, Lisa! LOve your wonderful Shamrock! Like Linda, I made one with hearts years ago - thanks for this lovely reminder!

Hi Lisa, I love it !! your paper is gorgeous and the dies used have created a fabulous card, I love it !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

I don't know which I like the best, the pretty plaid paper or the shamrock made from hearts! What a great card!

This is so creative and totally adorable, Lisa! Great card!!

This is so fanciful with the scalloped hearts and flowing curves, Lisa. You have indeed created magic.

Your card is so clever, creative and very, very magical, Lisa!

Oh my goodness, Lisa. I made a little joyful noise when I scrolled dow to reveal this wonderful card. The papers, the hearts, the butterflies... just a fabulous composition! I LOVE it!

What beautiful shamrocks you created with the hearts - love the green plaid for St. Pats!
