Technique – die cutting

Featuring die cutting

Belated Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone

For today’s quick card, I used a gorgeous die from Simon Says Stamp which I cut twice – once in glitter paper and once in vellum.

I offset the glitter die cut to expose just a thin shadow of vellum. I added some Hero Arts Metallic Décor and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted to complete the card.

I’m entering this in the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – ‘birthday bash’.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bright Anniversary

Hi Everyone

It’s still so hot and sunny here in London – I’m sure it can’t last much longer. My craft room is like an oven, so I was only in there for a short amount of time today!

Here is my card – inspired by the Ellen Hudson June Pinsights challenge. The dies and sentiment stamp are by Essentials by Ellen and I also used a Tim Holtz flower stencil on the hearts and base card.

I’m entering this into the Ellen Hudson challenge and also the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Thanks for looking!

Happy Birthday Bro!

Hi everyone

I have the honour of being a guest designer over at the Less is More challenge blog this week.

The theme is ‘personalise it’ and here is the card I made for my DJ brother using dies from Technique Tuesday and My Favourite Things.

I created the personalised sentiment using good ol’ MS Word and the Bradley Hand Font, which I love to use for my personalised cards!

The design team have created some wonderful cards for this challenge over at the Less is More blog – I hope you have a chance to check them out and join in the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Owl

Hi everyone!

I love participating in sketch challenges as they often push me beyond my CAS comfort zone… and I also find that I can use up some of my very neglected patterned paper mountain at the same time!

Today’s card is for the current My Favorite Things sketch challenge – I’ve paired MFT stamps with dies from Simon Says Stamp and Memory Box on this card. And I’ve been able to use some of my patterned paper (from My Mind’s Eye). Woo hoo indeed!

Thanks for looking!
