Shrinking Die Cuts

Hi there!

I mentioned that I was following an online class "Stretch Your Dies" and I make no excuses for this being a busy card ... I had no idea that you could shrink those big old die cuts using plain foam and couldn't wait to get right to it using the things on my desk

On a card this size (4x6) I would normally only be able to fit one of the larger die cuts but after seeing the tutorial by Jennifer McGuire I was enlightened and amazed ...

I coloured the white foam word "hello" using a Promarker and it looks just like suede!
I'm getting out all those old foam sheets I had pushed to the back of my supplies and I'll definitely be using this idea again...

Spring has paid us a visit today and it's wonderful! The sun is shining, birds are singing and Ginger cat is sun bathing in the garden ... 
I hope it's a good day where you are

AAA cards Challenge


I've enrolled in the online class Stretch your Dies and I'm really enjoying it ... I'll share some cards with you later in the week but today I have a card I made at the weekend with the 
AAA Card Challenge in mind ... The theme is Bare Naked

It's about having a lot of white space on your card - I delved into my scraps and came up with this card

The butterfly was cut from a scrap of white card that I had previously sprayed with various inks and the splattered vellum was left over from an earlier card

The sentiment is by PTI and the sweet little resin rose was from a pack I received as part of a birthday gift from the lovely Wendy ... 

I hope you are enjoying your week ...

Take care
