Well, I have made it back for a quick blog again!
Not sure where I'm up to with letting you know about my life, but I have just moved house, so that has been providing me with much stress and hassle the past few weeks. And little time for crafting.
But I have had to make a few new cards, and the Big Shot came in very useful for saving me time!
I managed to make these four very quickly. Well, once I had dug everything out and stopped faffing about!
I have also mastered the art of making more of one of the same card at each time - economies of scale and all that!
Here I used the Fun Flowers die, which is simply marvellous. They are a really good size so you can use them as the main focal point. They're also perfect for brooches from fabric or felt.
And the Beautiful Wings Embosslit makes the sweetest little butterflies!
I teamed the butterflies and flowers with Springtim Vintage DSP, and added the Top Note die embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder for added dimension without taking away from the main focus.
Weekend is here again already, and this time I'm off to our Buns & Roses WI 80s party tonight, and the Embroiderers Guild meeting tomorrow. Then I shall attempt to chill out and watch the racing!
