I thought I would share a sample I have made for the shows on Hochanda on Monday at 10am, 3pm and 7pm with a couple of new products and some not seen before. The New product is a little selfish as I love my Starflower dies and the smallest of these is one of my faves of the set. I decided when we needed to order more of the flowers and leaves to make a new die which cuts six of the smallest flowers in one pass and that will launch, along with more stack iff the classic starflower and leaves, on the show on Monday.
The not seen before are a range of brilliant dies from Press Cut one of which I have been looking for for a long time but no company I could find had made one. I always wanted a set of nesting dies with a notched inward corner. Well just launched form press cut are the notched squares and rectangles, the rectangles I have used here come form the set of 16 that come together in the set enough even for my matting and layering!
Finally I used one of the dies form the set of A4 Book Dies which give you the look of an open book perfect for all sorts of cards! In this card the book looks as if it is shaped from the centre but it isn't its simply the cut of the die and the shading!
I will be demoing the techniques used to make this card on Mondays shows as well as loads of other ideas so tune in to see how it was done!
