Die Cutting Essentials 20

Hi Everybody,

Another fantastic freebie is on offer with this months Die Cutting Essentials and the video to show you the gift is called Butterfly Wishes

The gift consists of two dies  ... a fligree butterfly and the solid layer that can be used with the filigree or create a stand alone shape but both look good used independently

There is also a stamp set that can be used to compliment your design and there are lots of ways to use them. Stamp the butterfly and then use the die to cut it out

In the video I have tried to show you some variations that you may like to try but I am sure that you will come up with many more once you start to play

Here I have stamped and water coloured the butterfly and then once I have cut it out I have curved the wings and added them to my card front.

The sentiment is die cut that is available from Craft Stash

Todays video makes ten that I have added this week and I really hope you have enjoyed them all,

If you left your comment on YouTube then thank you so much it is much appreciated.

In the magazine you will find some more of my ideas an page 25 featuring the Tropical Blooms stamp set that I videoed a little while ago. 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
