Hi My Crafty Blog Friends
How is your week going? The time between Christmas and New Year is always a bit odd. I have had quite a few deadlines for Tattered Lace and that has kept me busy. It is good to be at home as my husband really needs to rest his poorly wrist. This might be my last blog post of this year so I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year. I wonder what is in store for all of us.
I made some samples for Tattered Lace using dies aimed more at the American market. These dies are part of the pick of the week on Create and Craft USA this week. The only way I can watch this is on line.
I made two lots of samples as I was sent the dies in two batches.
This is the first lot of samples that I sent off. I was given the brief to make the cards as American as possible.
This is the Cheerleader die. This card was used to show off the die on the website.
I also made a tag I liked changing the colours. This tag was also on the website.
This was my second lot of samples all of these were shown on screen.
I liked using the Statue of Liberty die the star burst was made with a mask.
I used the pompoms from the Cheerleader die to make the fireworks behind the statue. I also made my own mask to create the cityscape.
I changed the colours to make this tag.
This cheerleader die is called Cheers. I created the background with the same mask as the Statue of Liberty die this time this time I offset it and used two colours.
I enjoyed making her shiny and sparkly I especially like making the red shoes.
Here are some pictures from the television. It is rather strange to know that your cards are being viewed in America.
I will leave you with best wishes for a Happy New Year.
