This week I have been working with some of the new dies from the Sue Wilson collection ready for Wednesday's workshop. I did have a panic on Thursday when my Joy Machine broke but Peter from Crafts too was very helpful and not only is he sending me the bits to repair the machine but he managed to get a new machine out to me for Friday so that I could use it on the demo weekend. This time I have tried the crossover machine from Cheery Lynn which is designed for paper and fabric, so if anyone wants to see it do pop in.
The double glitter techniques works really well with PEACE and the stencil sheets from Woodware / stix 2 are really useful for this. The tree stamp has been transformed into a winter scene using stampendous embossing powders - chunky white and vintage blue tinsel. The die set works really well with shadow techniques - what I love about these dies is the different sized outline frame and the separate internal decoration. Words are Cheery Lyn. Cats are Marianne,
I have almost finished the other die cutting workshop board featuring the tree pivot and other new (& old) dies, so that will be my next offering. After that I need to work on the new creative stamping - classic Christmas set!
