Hello. Welcome. Happy New Year and happy new followers. A special hi and hello to Shery and Lynne who have joined our happy little band. So glad to have you along. Hugz for everyone. Maybe it's the new year. I know I have been looking for new challenges and in the process have found a few new blogs to follow. Must just make sure I take some time and get around and leave some love. If I haven't visited you in a while do please invite me over. We are all busy but I really do appreciate the time you take to come over and leave some love. More hugz.
I really seem to be doing more die cutting than stamping at the moment. Maybe that's cos I treated myself to a few new dies for the silly season. Today I decided to use a die I saw Jeanne using that I have had for a while but not ever used. So I decided to give her technique a whirl. I have also been experimenting with a watermark. I hope it's not too distracting.
This is Poppystamps Bonney Stem die. I've gone blue, silver and glitter because I think it's a great reflection of winter colours. I cut and embossed it in grey card then used Brilliance Starlight Silver and Versamagic Aegean Sea and Night Sky to colour. I cut Poppystamps Diamond Background from glitter card, a border in the same glitter card, and added a silver organza bow. I left the card long so I can add an appropriate sentiment later. This simple style is one I am seeing a lot on the Poppystamps blog. Using plain card really makes the dies pop.
