More Cards made with my New Die

Experimented with different coloured card for the words and backgrounds to make these new birthday cards

The cuts are easy to get out of the die, even though they are so intricate with all those curly bits!

Happy Birthday Die

Here's my new 'Happy Birthday' die with shadow backing. I've been looking for something like this for a while, as it will be so versatile. You can snip out some of the curly bits for more masculine makes, like this card!

Imagination Crafts - Starlight Metallic Paint

I've had the silver and blue starlight paints for some time, so thought I'd better start to use them. 

I got my brayer out and made several backgrounds

And also decided to paint some wooden shapes that I've had kicking around too!

 Finally, when I cleaned the brayer and paint brushes with a facial wipe , I was left with these pretty patterns on the wipes - think I will cut them up to make some sparking flowers!

Tattered Lace Magazine Issue 66 - Shoes!

I was temped by this months issue of Tattered Lace Magazine by the High Heeled Shoes!

I love the fact that the free die has so many different elements that can be snipped off and used separately. Like last months cute Elephant, I think I will get a lot of use from it

I've already download the silver and red versions of the stilettos to use in more cards

Simply Cards & Papercraft 192 - Nautical Scenes Dies

This months copy of Simply cards mag has a Nautical set of dies as a freebie

They are a bit fiddly to use - the little seagulls were so small that it is easier to draw them on with black pen!

Its hard to line up all the different waves and backgrounds too

But it is a good way of using up some of the off cuts of coloured card that we all seem to accumulate!
