Folk Dance Die Fun!

I used the super pretty new Folk Dance die from Simon Says Stamp's newest release, Friendly Frolic, which just came out today!!  I think this die is so stinkin pretty!!!  I was having so much fun, I  used it FOUR different ways...showing you just some of the wonderful versatility of this die...
This first card, I die cut the Folk Dance die a couple times with white cardstock, and adhered, together.  I used a piece of watercolor paper and sponged seven colors of Distress Oxide Inks from top to bottom in rainbow fashion.  I then adhered that to the white layered panel and added the sweet new "Happy" die to the front of the card, along with a piece of sentiment from Simon's Big Thanks Words stamp set.  Here's a close up...
The  second one, I used a piece of green cardstock behind layered black die cuts.  I added die cut blue and yellow flower pieces, adhering into the black die cut panel, and opposite middles for the yellow and blue flowers...
I added a die cut Simon Says Stamp Thanks die cut sentiment in the same color as the flowers.  Here's a close up...
The third one is super simply done with a single piece of pretty cardstock underneath the layered die cuts....
I added a vellum panel with a gold embossed sentiment from the Simon Big Thanks Words stamp set.  Here's a close up...
The fourth one, I watercolored on an embossed piece of watercolor paper (embossing to be able to see the flower and leaves real well while painting)...
I used a more intense paint of the same green, on the green dots.  I added a beautiful sentiment from the new Simon Says Stamp set, Sketch Lotus Flowers, stamped with versamark on vellum and gold embossed.  Here's a close up... 
  This die makes my heart happy...what a pretty and super fun full card die!!  Hope you will check out the new release over at's wonderful!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
