3 for Tuesday & That End of Term Dash!

July 15, 2014 at 10:29 am 24 comments

Morning! So- 3 quick flashes of projects. I don’t know why I don’t post everything- I just forget! The first is the project for today over at Make The Day Special

20140715-101942-37182711.jpg
A simple die-cutting technique that I’ve used again for the next set of cards too. Just die cut a ton of different colours, stack- leaving a slight shadow to the left or right with the next colour and keep stacking and shifting until it’s the rainbow effect you were hoping for! This one is using the WPlus9 Trio of Happy dies.
The next two are projects I created during my demo on Saturday. These two were unplanned and ‘fly by the seat of your pants whilst there’s a whole room watching’ cards- so I was quite pleased ( read amazed and relieved!) with how they came out!! I’ve used their new ‘Christmas sayings’ die set which is actually really brilliant!

I said it was going to be quick!!
My list is multiplying by what seems an exponential rate! ( and that’s a big word for me on a Tuesday morning).
Having realised that school does in fact finish next week and there are a whole load of thankyou cards and baking to do, I need to write lists so I don’t forget.
We don’t do big gestures- just calorie ridden ones. The sort of present for the teachers that is easily shared and hopefully quickly gone!
I’ll show you what I’ve created once I’ve thought of exactly what I’m doing.
( ha ha).

I’m entering these word die projects into the latest Moxie Fab World challenge. Its called Wonderful Words challenge-It’s all about word dies right here

Until then- I’m continuing to create rather a scary load of Christmas cards.
I’m at Sycamore Garden Centre on Saturday- so do come and wave nicely at me!
See you once I’ve come out of denial that school is actually ending next week!!

    Well dear, you’ve done it again. Each one is gorgeous, whether flying by the seat of your pants or not, you’ve nailed. So envious that you’re already getting ready for Christmas and I’m not. Hope all the recipients of your baked goods and cards truly appreciate them.

    You always make me smile with your amazing CAS cards, these three are amazing!

    Hope the calorie ridden baking & the lightweight cards balance out each other and are both mightily appreciated:-) xxx
