Daring Cardmakers-Die Cuts

Posted by manicstamper on September 1, 2007

Good grief I just can’t believe that I have neglected my blog for so many days. Where has this week gone?
I seem to have been so busy this week but don’t have an awful lot to show for it although my workroom is a little tidier than it was.
Thanks to everyone who has left comments for the Blog Candy. I have added an extra item to the stash………..a pack of Crafts House chipboard letters.
The giveaway closes at midnight tomorrow so if you want a chance to win then leave a comment on the next post down.

I am going to be in so much trouble at DCM this week. I have read the brief wrong again. I was supposed to use three die cuts to make a card and I have used twelve.
I am sooooo going to be sent to the naughty corner but I have to post the one I have done as I don’t have time today to do another one.
Anyway here is what I used-:
Black and white spotty paper is Pink Petticoat.
Postage stamp die cut-Cricut Base Camp Cartridge.
Snowflake stamp-Stampendous.
Letters are Sizzix Lollipop cut from mountboard and covered with pink snowflake paper from Crafts House.
Snowflakes punched from glitter card and embellished with a gem.

My daughter has been spoiling me rotten this week for some reason and keeps coming home with pressies for me. I now have the DCWV Metallic Stack, a load of Sizzlit dies including one of the long alphabet ones, a beautiful Magenta project book, a writing tablet thingy for the computer and a load of cartridges, the complete collection of the new Studio G Christmas stamps and as if that wasn’t enough she went up to Craft Central this morning to get herself some beady things and came back with one of the Fancy Pants huge sets of stamps. I just don’t know what I have done to deserve all of this I am sure. It’s not my birthday or anything so I can only think that Christmas has come early this year. Isn’t she just the best?

Well I had best go and get something done workwise in the hope that I will have time later to try one of the projects in my Magenta book.

Have a fab weekend.

    Like your card lots, and I would argue you’re okay, since you’ve only used 3 KINDS of die cuts: snowflakes, letters and stamps 🙂 I just realized I actually messed up: my card’s got 5 – can’t count, oops!
    Enjoy your daughter spoiling you, it probably won’t last forever 🙂

    Can’t think why you should be worried if your card qualifies Sheila……..
    you’ve got three Welsh Barber quartets there.

    Great card and I love the Pink and Black together.
