May Workshop cards

  Assuming we can start workshops later this month  and since there will only be 2 weeks left in the month I have picked ideas that extend what we were doing last year with new dies / ideas, so w few samples will have been shown before.

Background Dies - Board 1



The last but 1 two rows show some of the new dies I have tried out recently. The top two rows and bottom row show images you may have seen last autumn.

Paper Panda dies at the top of Board2 show new additions to the deer done last year but still using backgrounds with embossing powders although I have coloured some with mica magic


The bottom rows here are using different backgrounds - alcohol inks, sprays, and waste buildup sheets

JND's 4 seasons die on Board 3 was used for Christmas but these concentrate on use in other seasons and using them with stamps as well as dies in the background.

Easter Cards

 The cards I have worked on this month have all been Easter cards for me to send. I used a mixture of dies I had cut ready for workshops that never happened and a creative expressions cross I had just bought. Otherwise I've just been stocktaking whilst we are closed. Looking forward to getting back to normal next month... hopefully!!




I must remember to put the plain tablecloth on before taking pictures so they stand out from background !!

More 3D papercuts

 I have spent my time recently looking at the cat on the bike 3D papercut and also looking at using all 3 flat on embossed background cards. I then thought what about those who don't like the animals so cut them off and used the vehicles only.

 So here are a few of my ideas

3D papercuts

 I tried various variations of these 2 papercuts ready for a birthday card for my son. My plan next is to use them flat on a card with a background but I'm not spending too much tie in the shop at the moment due to lockdown and that's where all my stuff is.

Shutter Cards

  These were done with the shutter card die from JND and other rectangle & Square dies I have. I spent December trying to come up with a number of variations as you can see. Unfortunately I haven't done any cards for the last few weeks. I get despondent planning for workshops that can't happen due to the covid crisis.



then since these don't all show up clearly here are the individual cards

and even more

 To finish? off with Sam's circles I decided to try the lanterns we did with Sam's star last year. I also tried hinging 2 together  with a T light in between. Pictures show effect with and without lighting nd with last years

More with Sam's Circles

 This is the most versatile die I have bought this Christmas. I set myself the challenge of how many












different ways could I use it and I am still working on it but here are a selection.

Christmas Flowers and poinsettia frame

 Here I have used the new poinsettia frame (JND) plus some of the words which are die cut into the card (JND) alongside various flowers that go with the Christmas theme. I also put flowers on the slider card, the bauble and used a Sue Wilson frame I had for sale.
