Different ways to Use a Banner/Bunting Die
Good Morning Ladies,
Danielle and I were both approached through our new Facebook Group by a chap that has designed his first die and had it manufactured, he was looking for Crafters to use the die and give feedback and provide him with some samples to share on his Website.
I will share Danielle's projects on Saturday when I will share my other project too.
This particular piece was to show that the Banner Die can be used for more than just a Banner, I used the die to make a card, I simple took a piece of card and scored it, folded it in half and ran it through the Gemini with top cutting edge of the die just above the scored edge of the card, so that it doesn't cut through. I used the die to cut a piece of pretty 'Crafters Companion Shabby Chic' Paper, ( I am so disappointed that CC don't make this paper any longer, I had a book of it that came with a magazine and I love it, but this is about the last of it)☹
I adhered the paper to the card base and then started to embellish, the first thing I did was to ink around the edges with a little 'Crumb Cake' ink, just to soften them. Next came the lace and pearls and a doily, which I added to the side of the card, this was my place for arranging a little spray of flowers, I went with pinks to compliment the paper. I die cut two little tags out of the same paper pad, inking the edges, adding the same lace and pearls, I stamped 'For You' onto a tiny heart and added that to the tag.
I tied a tulle bow through the holes in the top of the Bunting die and tied into a bow, I used the same tulle through the tag.
A very girly card, showing that a Banner/Bunting die can be used for many other things.
I bought myself some Pixie Powders to have another go at using them, I did book a class for Sue and I for her 50th birthday but if we were both honest we didn't get great results, we followed all guidelines and instructions but we just ended up with a muddy mess, so when I told Sue that I had bought some Pixie Powders she was a bit apprehensive. Sadly we aren't meeting up this week as Sue is spending the day with little Christopher as it is his birthday, I cannot believe that he is 4 already, it barely seems a year since we were announcing his arrival.
I hope that you all have a lovely day Sue, give little Christopher a hug from us. xxxx
Well ladies, I will be getting messy today in my craft room, what are you all up to??
Whatever it is I hope you have a lovely day,
Love and hugs
