Breaking News!

I posted a card a couple of weeks ago using Gayle Bond's Cross Image,I said at the time I would let you know once it was released. Well,the Cross and another beautiful Easter image have now been released,you can find examples of cards made using both of the digis here,along with a link to the Scrapbook Sister's shop where you can view all of Gayle's beautiful images.. I thought you might like to see another card that I made using the cross but excuse the photo,the colours look a bit harsh and after seeing it on here I was going to alter the card and distress the edges of the embossed image but in real life it looks just fine, so I decided not to lol! I cut my card using a Scalloped Nestie then cut another from Yellow felt,don't know if you've tried it but it cuts beautifully,you just need to add a thin piece of card on top of the die when you run it through the Cuttlebug to ensure that there is a good clean cut. Something else I discovered purely by accident was that if you place a piece of felt over the embossed image and run it back through the cuttlebug with the die back in place,it softens the embossing slightly,give it a try and you'll see what I mean. I'm using this card or the following challenges:- AI73,Bright as day, Craft Us Crazy 5,Here comes Spring, Crafts And Me 28,Use Yellow, Creative Craft World,Easter, Spoonfull Of Sugar 145,Easter, High Hopes 105,Use fabric, Creative Stamp Friends 21,Spring, Karens Doodles,Easter, Woodware USA20,CAS. That's all from me for today, Thanks for stopping by, Julie.x
