Good morning ladies,
Before I get started today I have some exciting news......Our Blog is going to be featured on the SET Craft Facebook Store, we will be "Blog of the day" on Friday, I am quite excited, you best all go get your hair done, Norah please put the 'Huggles' somewhere safe !!
Now onto this weeks 'Guilty Secrets', I have to say that I think that not everyone has 'confessed' this week! none of you have bought Phill Martins new dies, there are a couple of them I really like, they look quite big though.
The Melbourne Die from Sue Wilson's latest release, I was needing some new round dies and I love this ones, that decorative edge cuts a lovely 'Doily' looking die cut,I just cut the outer ring and the 3rd die in our of Periwinkle card, I then used those same two dies and added in the decorative insert, this time in white,giving me that lovely doily die cut, I layered it onto the Periwinkle piece, added some mounting foam, I created the background of my card by matting the periwinkle card with the white card, the top piece was embossed with the Daisy Lattice Folder from Crafts Too,
I added some Cosdmiuc Shimmer glue to me Melbourne die cut and mounted it on the card, I then took the Lattice Buckle Bar and cut it in white card and then cut a small piece of periwinkle card to mat at the back lattice section of the die, now here is an amazing effect that I created by accident... After adding the periwinkle matt to the Buckle Bar die I placed it back in the die and embossed it again (only because I didn't think the first one was deep enough), I was so excited when I removed it from the die and discovered that the periwinkle card had been embossed through the lattice holes making it really stand out, I think it looks great like this, how about you??
Myra couldn't resist the new "Happy Birthday" die from the 'perspectives' collection from Sue's latest launch. I love the clean and simple card you have created with this new die Myra, I think that it is one of those dies that suits that style, also great for 'men cards', thank you for sharing Myra xxx
Last but not least we have Jean's wonderful haul of treasures from the 'Event City' show in Manchester last Friday, I love that Daisy Cluster die, Pat has it and it cuts beautifully, you can use it many different ways including making a lovely frame, I like the 'Orange Blossom Leaves' die too, I have that 'Corvus ' Gemini die and it gives you the most beautiful lacy border, I am pleased to see you got some good priced essentials too and your 'Bling on a Roll'!
I look forward to seeing what you buy at the Leigh show in a week or so, I think Michele may be going to that one too, thanks so much for sharing your goodies with all of us xxxx
Its not too late to confess ladies, I can add them through the day!!
Pat and Sue coming over today, I can't wait to see them both .
Love and hugs
PS. Get well soon Michele xx
sheila and Cheryl and Margaret C, we miss you all, and our dear Saba of course!
