This week at "Less is More" the challenge is to use die cuts or punches... quite an easy proposition after last week's one layer challenge!
This card uses a Cuttlebug die which I cut twice... once in some green card and again using a piece of acetate packaging which I had coloured by dabbing with alcohol inks. I also decided to emboss it with a bumpy embossing folder. The two images were then stuck together and a couple of gem eyes added.
It's mounted on a Nestie square which in turn is sitting on a Cuttlebug embossed panel.
The foliage is a Flonz stamp and the sentiment from Personal Impressions.
The details of this one is on the LIM blog... but I was really pleased with my package which arrived yesterday... I love the Hero Arts stamp and the Memory Box dies!
This one is also described on the "Less is More " Blog, but I really love the effect of this sumptuous tribute to Klimt from Chocolate Baroque.
This last one has a Letterpress background which I made some time ago and have only just got around to using. The border is from a Spellbinders Edgeability die embellished with a few adhesive pearls. The stamps are from SU and the die cut mounts from Spellbinders.
I simply love using dies in my crafting and my trusty Cuttlebug machine lives on my desk at my right hand... I just love it and regard it as one of my most essential tools. I love the finish that dies give to card!
I have been making quite a few cards for Mother's Day to sell at my choir... lots of members prefer to have it referred to as Mothering Sunday so I have had to make a variety of sentiments for them.
Do join us this week... it's an easy challenge, we'd love to see your creations!
