Hello Crafters

How has your week been? We did manage a few really lovely sunny spring days here, and it makes you feel like a new person, but we also had a few miserable ones, so on these days crafters head straight for the craft goodies, don’t we, never a rainy day in the crafting stakes 🙂

As I have been away from crafting for a while, I thought I would just have a little tinker about and see what would happen. So first I came across a die purchase that I managed to buy at a really good rate, but when I got it, I must say I was a little disappointed. It was much smaller than I thought, and it was a Tattered Lace die – Midi Side Stepper Die, which I tend to avoid as I think they are way over priced. I also wanted to try and use up those bits of scrap we hang onto, as we always know they are good for something, so I put the two together and came up with this.

It’s really small, and on the back I cut and stamped a tone on tone piece of pink card so you can write your greeting on and it has double sided tape so you can adhere it when you are ready. It’s about the size of an A2 (UK Size). Sweet but small.

Next I ventured a little further (getting my mojo going), and decided to use another of my purchases Creative Expressions – Australian Collection Background that I had been staring at for ages hoping for that massive lightening bolt to hit you with an idea, and I think finally, it made contact!

Now this I like! I used Creative Expressions – Configurations Elegant Lace Edger Die to frame the inside and MFT – Dienamics Stitched Tags for the sentiment. Inside the card I used MFT – Birthday Greetings Sentiment Stamp. I also used an embossing folder for the inside background with leaves but I haven’t a clue which one it is!

Last but not least I made a couple of Easter Cards

I used Lawn Fawn – Chirpy Chirp Chirp Stamp and Dies & Puffy Clouds & Grassy Border & Stitched Squares, Mama Elephant – Lunar Animals.

Well I think that’s it for now. Hope you all have a wonderful Easter.
