New Love and Romance Stamps

Hi again this time I have another fab card to share showing the lovely Annabel as a Mermaid. She is super cute and her hair is so lovely to colour in.

I have decided to layer some pattern paper on a black base card which I think works out very well. I use one of whimsy buttle top sentiments, prisma and wild orchid crafts flowers and some florish gems and sickles to give it a bit of a bling.

I coloured her with copics, and use some glitter girls crystal blossoms  remember to join in on our weekly challenge this week HERE. We are doing our first Exhibition show in February from the 9th to the 11th, I will be back with more information nearer the time,  plus there will be lots more die launching and lots of new and exciting things happening in the new year so keep checking this blog.

Exciting new tutorial

Hi fellow bloggers well, sometime ago I ask the lovely Pop's from Pop's Cards  if she could do a tutorial using the border dies and she said yes.  I am so excited to post this tutorial today and if you could stop by her blog and leave her some lovely comments and take a look at her fantastic work as well.

Crafty Sentiments new border Dies Tutorial

Today I am sharing with you a new stamp and die that I got and I have done a little tutorial for you to see how easy they are to use and how nice they look on your finished creation....

This cutie is called Yummy Treat and both her and the Fancy Floral Die are available from Crafty Sentiments.....

This is what your die looks like, it is a metal die and they give such great impressions and they cut a dream....

This is the back of you die can you see the little holes in this that is to make your paper or card come out easier, I will show you how to a little later...

I use a big shot for my die cutting with the adaptor plate, I always pop a little bit of masking tape on to hold it in place as I always cut close to the edge as I don't like wasting card...

Once you have pulled of the tape this is how it will come out of your machine, you can see some of the hearts have already fallen out this is normal....

I have a small pricking tool that I use but a hat pin or safety pin will do the same job, I spin it over so I can see the back of the die and I pop my pricking tool in to each of the holes and gently push, I have once pulled a die cut out of the die and torn it so I always use this method....

You can see just how crisp it has cut my card and yes there is a few little bits left to push out so again I use the pricking tool for this....

I don't like leaving mine plain as I love to distress things, I use a cats eye chalk ink to do this and I just rub it over the edge, you can also use chalk or distress inks to do this...

I have already distressed my paper and I stick my die cut to the top of my paper you will notice that I have lined it up so it is even at both edges, this way when I cut of the extra the pattern still follows...

I have done this to the bottom part also and then I have glued this on to my card base, how easy are these to use and how pretty is this one....

I have stamped my Yummy Treat Stamp on to Neenah Card and coloured her with copic markers, I have used Kraft Card as my base and for my leaves, Sentiment and for the Fancy Floral Border Die, I have distressed all the edges, the papers are MME Vanity Fair and I have added some Muslin Fabric, my flowers are Wild Roses, 25mm Open Roses, 15mm Open Roses and Sweetheart Blossoms, I have added 2 Crown Pins at each side of my flowers, a Butterfly with Gems and I have added lots of Stardust to all the edges and the flowers...

I hope you found this useful, I find it is easier in pictures as you can take your time, thank you so much for looking today and any comments that you may leave, biggest of hugs love Pops x x x
