Planting Love and Groot, Yes, That Groot

Today I am SUPER DUPER EXTRA wicked excited to be on the Spellbinders blog showcasing a brand new and totally fabulous die from the Laced With Love collection called Planting Love. Here I am showing a fairly traditional use for this gorgeous die. I absolutely LOVE this tree! AND...the set comes with an entire plate of tiny hearts that you can add to the heart shaped tree. WHAT?! Yup. Totally fabulous, folks. For reals.


I die cut the tree from Planting love several times from brown cardstock and then once from woodgrain paper from DCWV.  I then stacked the cuts to create a ton of dimension and depth for this die. I am SO IN LOVE with it!!!! I used various elements from the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge Collection, with which I am also in love. Seriously, though, you guys...awesome dies + awesome paper? What more can a crafty girl ask for?! A bit of May Arts silver string finishes off the design perfectly! And guess what? Yup. I totally love that, too. Are you feeling the love yet? 'Cause it is all up in this blog today.

HAHAHAHA!!!! I totally just said that. *sigh* That was hilarious. Okay...moving on, for reals, though...

Love Ya (detail)

This shot shows that depth from the stacked cuts. I so love this look. If you  haven't tried it yet, you simply MUST. It has such an awesome impact on the simplest of projects!

BUT, my friends, that's not ALL this gorgeous Planting Love die can do, oh, nosiree, BOB! It can also be Groot. Yes. That Groot. THE Groot.

THIS crazy, baby, bobble-headed, dancing in as pot Groot.
