Hi, and welcome. I've been trying for quite some time to get something finished that would fit into the Happy Little Stampers Challenge. Finally I did get something that I think will work. In fact, 2 somethings! Lately I've been trying to finish up a bunch of UFO's, that have been hanging around - seems like forever. Hunting for some things I ordered, put in a safe place...and can't find. Finding other things that I'd looked for earlier. Sound familiar?
First though, help me welcome a new friend, Kathy, of KTKrafts. Please take a few moments to go over, enjoy Kathy's wonderful blog, and say hello. You won't be sorry you did! It's been a while since I had a new follower (have been seeing them disappear, then reappear), so it was happy, happy to see a new friendly face show up in the pictures' list.
Now, on to the card:
- MBox Ringo Tile die* cut out the white c/s, and Sizzix XandO EF. It is not showing well, but there are 2 scored lines separating the embossed section and the panel. Behind the panel is a previously done spray piece (believe it was Dylusions..I've been experimenting with Brusho-s and Dylusions - so there's plenty of background pieces. I _should_ write on the back of the piece what product was used, but ...)
- Frantic Stamper sentiment die cut from the same color.
- added a few sequins...and folks, that's my CAS!
*First tried die cutting the MB die with some textured Win-Win c/s (it's like Bazzill). Did lots of passes, but it did not cut well. Added a metal shim, still not a clean cut. Tried with varying thin card stocks...flipping & rotating the die as it was being cut. After working with some good sharp scissors to cut out bits of the panel, I gave it up. Decided to try one more time with just the cheap Walmart brand of GP cardstock, just a few back n forth passes - no shims - the die cut very cleanly. Only had to poke out just a couple of bits. The main panel was raised up on thin white fun foam - a technique I've seen Jennifer McGuire doing lately.
I'm off to link up with Happy Little Stampers Challenge for May 2015.
Thanks for joining me today, big hugs all round, and hope if you've not been feeling well lately, that you're on the mend! God Bless.
