I'm very excited to be sharing samples for the World launch of Tattered Laces new signature collection which launches on Create and Craft TV on Monday at 8am with Nancy Watt and Dean Wilson.
I was sent 2 of the new die sets to work with and below are the cards I made.
The foliage deer die set has 2 dies in it; the deer and the foliage. I cut the deer in white and used alcohol markers to colour it. I also cut the die 3 more times and layered them up to make the deer more pronounced. I used the foliage to create a border around the card.
This card was created in a similar way, I cut the foliage 8 times and layerd them in pairs with foam pads between to add depth and shadows to the card. I couldn't help but use the deer for Christmas themed cards as it is so adorable.
For this card I used the stately gates die, i cut the gates twice from black card so that I could elongate them giving the look of gates and railings.
In this card I have used the gates but have remove the lamps giving the look of garden gates. I have teamed it with the deer and foliage and also dies from previous collections such as the country manor.
Now for some shabby chic, I used the gates as a whole piece, cut as they are intended and I added some light beige to distress them. I team them with torn hearts and script dies to give a vintage feel.
I hope I have shown you that the dies can be used in many ways, stand alone or teamed with dies you already own. Below are links to the the dies on Create and Crafts website along with show times channel numbers.
The launch is at 8am on Monday 2nd October with another show at 4pm and a repeat at 11pm
