I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Sneak Peeks - Die'sire dies

These are my sneak peeks of the fabulous new dies from CRAFTERS COMPANION that will launch on Create & Craft on Sunday 19th August.  There is such a wonderful mixture of dies with of course multiple uses.  I had a gorgeous border - Lace border 2 - and a stackable set - Scallop Tags.



I used Lace Border 2 for the border at the top and to make the rosette.  This die has cut out parts and embossing parts so works brilliantly with sanding of core-dinations card stock.  With topper from Moreheads CD and epiphany tool for centre of rosette to complete the card.


This is also using Lace Border 2 for the border at the bottom and also around the oval of the image.  I "gathered" the card stock to bend it around the image which of course is super cute Humphrey stamp.


This card uses the border for the frame with cutting the strips at 45 degrees for the corners and also the large tag and label die from the Scallop Tag die set which was embossed and sanded.


This last card is a shaped card from the Morehead CD which I have added a tag to the front and embellished with a rose which is sprayed with Spray and Sparkle Pink and leaf punch.  Sentiment stamped at bottom and also on the tag inside which you can see in the pic below.



I hope you like my "peeks" and I'm sure, like me you are anxiously awaiting the release of these beauties as there are LOADS more designs to choose from.
