This week I've managed to combine two challenges into one card.
Keryn set the dare over on Daring Card Makers...
It's Keryn here this week and I've been lucky enough to get my hands on a 'Big Shot' die cut machine and I'm loving it. I want any excuse I can find to make cards, well anything really using die cuts. This week I want you to play with me. Dig out your dies and your die cut machine. Cut shapes of any size and theme you please and use at least one on your card for this week.
I combined it with Kazan's sketch over on 2 Sketches For You and came up with this:
Dies (as per Keryn's dare): Nellie Snellen frame (painted with acrylic and sanded); flowers made with Cuttlebug asterisks; Sizzix flower pot; Quickutz grass
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Ribbon from stash
As well as card making, I'm trying to expand my crafty repertoire and this week I acquired this..
No more pen stitching on cards for me, I'm going for the real deal. I've even bought some separate needles to use on paper.
I've not just got the machine for my paper crafts, I am attempting to make a dress! It may take some time as the last time I did any sort of dressmaking/machine sewing was at school in about 1987, and I think my Mum ended up finishing it off!
