Hi! How are you?
Whether you’re at work or enjoying a vague lie-in, I thought we’d look at making the most of the small things.
The smaller bits of kit that are the add-ons.
The under dogs, Cinderellas…you get the picture!
I’ve brought back a favourite die today as it’s back in stock at Make The Day Special Stamp Store
But we’re going to look at the little eyelet designs that come in addition to the main die. You could obviously place them over the holes created by the die or make a whole card just using them!
I’ve left them connected together. Unless I really want an individual placed shape, these smaller dies have a habit of disappearing in my craft space, so the bigger the shape, the more chance I have of keeping tabs on it!
I’ve simply laid out the dies onto my card, turning them to create a more interesting pattern and die cutting them in a swirly form.
I then cut out lots of colours from odd bits of card and paper that hadn’t quite reached the bin! I overlapped shapes and added centres into the holes by adhering a layer of acetate behind the front of the card, so I’d got something to anchor them all onto
Simple really- and perfect for a guy or girls card. One of the shapes looks like a bolt and the other a cog, so you could really make some interesting shapes. One of the ideas I had was to create a fluid DNA type pattern that would be great for a man-card, but that’s for another day. The stamp set is Really Rosemaling and I love the font they’ve used for the sentiments
Service as normal, will be resumed when I get even 5 minutes to breathe, never mind sit down and think. These summer holidays need renaming… perhaps ‘summer shattering’, ‘supposedly good weather weeks where we attempt (and often fail) to make an interesting time for our kids’ or maybe ‘summer work even harder weeks?’ What would you call them?! 😉
