A New Collection

HI Everybody,

I have some really pretty dies to tell you about today and they are all available from Craft Stash.
These are the Stitched and Pierced Collection  and this link will tke you to the full collection of thirteen different sets for you to choose.
Each edge is either stitched or pierced to alternate the look to your layers
I have done four videos to highlight some for you to see and all you need to do is click the links

The first video is the
and in the film I show you how I created this pretty card.

Use any embossing folder that you have to add texture to the card and it would look just as good in any other colour too.

The second video is using the 
and I have tried to give you some different ideas with this set of dies.

There are more ideas on the video

This pretty card is created with the 
and this is one of several ideas for you on the video.

I have added pearls to the centre of my card and on another I have created a shaker card.

And last but not least is the

In this particular video I have tried to show you some different ways to use the dies and the card to the left is the result of one of those ways

The stitching has been highlighted around the shape with a black fine liner pen

That is a really easy way to accentuate the detail on any of the shapes and sizes that you use.

More tomorrow ...

  9. WOW You can call this one back to basics. Great video on how to use simple shapes and the results are very impressive. There are so many great ideas in those videos with the simple shapes. I am so happy I found you!

  10. Hi, Christina,
    Beautiful cards and great videos. This reminded me that I don't have enough 'basic' nesting die sets. I can see a lot of the new sets going onto my wish list, which sadly is sitting on the back burner as I need to save up for a new computer (I've fallen in love with the all in one touch screen ones on offer). So no new toys for my craft room until I get my new 'baby'. Thankfully these sets are always needed so I should still be able to get them later in the year. Until then, I'll just sit back and enjoy watching the wonderful cards you're making.
