Well it's been a week since my last blog post and I realised that I have missed sharing some of my Tattered Lace DT samples with you, so here goes......
First up is the new Zodiac collection
I was sent the Sagittarius die and set about putting together these cards
The first card I put together has an inky background, I used distress inks, Lindys Magicals and Posca pens to give a cosmic feeling. I cut the "Archor" 7 times from gold satin board and layered them up to create a faux chipboard topper. I also did a bit of googling too and put together a little info card that give an insight into Sagittarius. A few tiny stars and gems add the extra bling.
I've always wanted to try a "starburst" effect card and thought it fitted the theme. I added a black frame for added drama.
Lastly I created a splattered background and added some twine and let the die take centre stage.
Now onto the Christmas makes
For these cards I was sent 4 snowflake dies and asked to create samples for Create and Craft TV shows.
I love how versatile this particular die is, from snow flake to flower in just a couple of snips.
This card is one of my favourites, I love the tartan against the gold.
Blue and silver is always a good combination
This card has a spinning snowflake that's suspended in the aperture.
I love how clean and classic this card is, The Kraft card along with the bronze ribbon, bell and gems just feel so luxurious yet organic.
This was a fun card to make, I took cut a curvy edge on the lower part of the card and then cut 5 snowflakes from it which I will use in later projects. I mounted it on to red tartan and then onto gold card. I cut 4 of the snowflakes from the gold card and added them to the white card and also used the mini stars that came out of the centre, I also cut a sentiment from the gold to pull the whole design together.
This was a fun card to make, I distressed the tartan paper on all edges and added mercury glass stickles.
This card again feature tartan paper and gold snowflakes. In the centre of each I added a red gemstone and finished the card with a organza bow and sentiment.
It's been a very busy few weeks, I am currently working on DT samples for Tattered Lace as well as putting together workshop packs for the Craft4Crafters show in October.
I don't think I've ever done so much die cutting in my life.
I'll be back next week with a post for paperbabe stamps and who know what else I might get upto between now and then, Have a fab weekend x
