Spellbinders ‘Let’s Bake’ Dies!

Hello! Hope you’re having a wonderful day!

It’s only a little while since I did any baking- I’ve managed to avoid doing too much over the school holidays as my kids have taken over that job!

I received some dies from Spellbinders and to my delight, one set is a baking themed one featuring 10 etched dies called ‘Let’s Bake – A Sweet Christmas’ by Sharyn Sowell.

This is what I cooked up 😉

Now you can see there’s not obviously any Christmas slant to it- but that’s the beauty of these- add a little holly or a Christmas patterned tablecloth and you have the perfect ‘from my home to yours’ or to adore tags with freshly baked goodies that you’ve rustled up yourself. Actually, after creating this, I had to top up my baking supplies ready for a session this evening!

If you haven’t ever used Spellbinders dies before, apart from their unique coloured gold dies, they’re a treat to use- they cut so cleanly and beautifully. I cut them out of white cardstock and then used my Nuvo AquaFlow pens to watercolour onto each piece. This easy type of scribbly watercolour suits me perfectly and I have loved creating with these dies.

I’ve other projects coming, so do keep an eye out for them.

The dies are available in the U.K. here and one US stockist with them in stock is Simon Says Stamp

I’d love to know what you think of the dies and how you can see yourself using them.

Thanks so much to Spellbinders for sending them- and I reckon I need to be off…there’s cakes that need baking!!

Other Stuff!!

   
Hi! Hope you had a lovely Christmas! 

It’s this weird even twilight time between Christmas and New Year when it’s easy to even forget what day it is!! 

I thought I’d show you these two cards that were created for a very specific commission to celebrate two different women’s Birthdays.

   
This first one was for a lady who loves baking and it seemed like ‘Baked With Love’ from Lawn Fawn would be the perfect set.

I love creating these ‘table top’ scenes. Much more fun to receive than your flat card, altho, yes, the envelope does need a little more attention!!  

 I used alcohol markers and some die-cuts extras from MFT ( some ancient number does), a Technique Tuesday ‘happy’ die and the ‘birthday’ stamp was from Clearly Besotted. 

The second card had to incorporate Cameras and dogs!!

 
Granted- you don’t normally take Polaroids with mini dogs rolling out, but this is art right ?! 😉

I used an Avery Elle camera stamp combined with the same MFT number dies and my 2015 favourite ; ‘Playful Pups’ by Mama Elephant 

 I hope they fitted the brief- the lady who commissioned them seemed pleased with them!

What’s the hardest commission you’ve ever done? Did they like it?!

Righto! I’ll be off. I’ve some lovely new releases to prepare for.

If I don’t get chance to come on before the New Year, can I thank each and every one of you who has visited and commented and generally made me smile on a regular basis. You all mean a lot to me. 

See you soon! xx
