How has your week been so far? I have been busy again making samples for Tattered Lace shows on Create and Craft.
The Peony Bloom Charisma die was fun to work with. There is a CD that has artwork on it that can be cut with the die and some lovely backing papers too. It does look pretty cut on its own without the special papers as well.
These are the samples that I sent in altogether in one place.
I made one of my gift bags ( have created a page with a tutorial giving measurements it is located at the top of my blog)
This is a 7" x 7" card the backing paper and the flowers were from the CD. I had seen Nancy Watt using a similar product so I knew what to do. The art work is slightly bigger than the die so there is a kind of halo round it when you line it up. I was a bit worried but it worked a treat in fact it was surprisingly simple.
I had a go at making a pillow gift box I found a template on the internet. You could write someone's name in the centre the white does show off the flowers nicely.
I made an easel card. There are some lovely colour combinations on the CD and all the backing papers I used came from there.
Lastly I made a tag I wanted to see what the die looked like on its own and I wasn't disappointed it is very pretty.
The shows are on today starting a 8am on Create and Craft Rossella will be demonstrating. I am hoping to watch some of the shows when I get back from work.
Have a great day
