Yes I have been having the greatest time playing with colouring and tiny die cutting! I truly have been completely taken by Lawn Fawn and Mama Elephant stamping and die cutting, and it is just so much FUN! Problem is I want them all and believe me there are a load to choose from.
Above is a set of stamps with matching dies called Little Bundle from Lawn Fawn, and the whole time I was playing with them, they just made me smile 🙂 The beauty of these are that you can not only do so much with them, but you don’t need a large die cutter either. I have a Bosskut, and it’s so quick and easy to use. You have all your parts cut out in no time. The colouring takes longer, but that’s fun because you are only held back by your imagination.
Here’s another version for a little boy:
I like this one more, as I made a sky background with this, and used parchment for clouds, so it looks a lot fuller and more picturesque. On both of these cards I have used Spectrum Noir Alcohol Pens and a clear Glitter pen, but you can’t see the sparkle in the pictures (try as I might to capture it). I also love the dies that make the scene, i.e. puffy clouds die, Grass die, etc and there are a few different brands to choose from My Favourite Things, Lawn Fawn, Mama Elephant to name a few, but they all do the same thing, you just have to have a look round and see what suits you.
Next I had a couple of birthdays for children coming up, so yet another excuse to play! Yesterday I made these two cards, and the Fairy Freinds card is a shaker card:
I must admit, the colouring took a while, but it was so worth it! My other half bought these for my birthday present and I have only just got the time to have a play, but I can assure you it won’t be the last! The inside of the card I have turned into a money slot with the aid of My Favourite Things Dienamics Card Grooves, originally to help hold gift cards, but it makes the perfect slot for money. The Gifting Fun stamps have useful sayings, and will really come in handy for Christmas too!
All these dies or majority of them, come from UK – Seven Hills Crafts Store. They only sell American dies, but their service is next to none, and deliver very quickly. They seem to take note if you ask them to let you know when a die is back in stock, and order it in, so I highly recommend them.
I hope you enjoy all these little people, appearing all over your screens. If you like colouring, my guess is you will love these.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
