It does also mean that it will be extra hard to fit in some card making time, as I'm looking after them during the day, and then they like to watch movies with me at night. So watch this space.....
I love die-cutting!! Actually I'm a little obsessed with die-cutting at the moment and have already entered the Little Tangles challenge two times but still have a few ideas up my sleeve....
I came up with this card design while I was walking the dogs. It was ultra fiddly but sometimes I think 'fiddly' is my middle name:
I started off by cutting a panel of white CS the same size as the card front and die-cutting the heart from it. I glued a piece of acetate behind it and then glued the heart die over-top. I then die-cut the die from some white foam and glued it to the acetate.
Then came the fun part of putting the different coloured beads in each triangle. I had beads everywhere but love how it turned out. I had to then very carefully glue along the edges of the foam and press the card front down on top of it. And then had to cut pieces of white foam, add some glue to each side and 'sandwich' them in between the card front and the panel, to give the card support.
I wanted the sentiment to be super simple, so just stamped it on a piece of white CS in black and popped up on foam tape. Ta da!!
The faceted heart die is from Neat and Tangled, as well as the sentiment stamp from the set 'Kindness Matters'. All of the beads are from The Ton.
I have three other challenges I would like to enter:
AAA Card Challenge # 62
Simon Says Stamp - Work It Wednesday Challenge - March (Pastel Colours)
Stamplorations CAS Card Challenge - April
Its getting close to dinner time and the natives are getting restless, so I better go and make something amazing. Well, when I say amazing I mean quick, easy and something the kids will like. Its Friday and I'm so tired, so my creativity for cooking has gone out the window. They will be lucky if they don't get just toast!!
