New Stuff!

Do you keep new stuff or do you dive right in! I’m a diver…there will probably be no new clothes in my closet when I die (ah unless I go tonight). check back in a week and there won’t be any.  I’m not that way with craft supplies…I hoard them. why WHY…I don’t know. I find things I have bought months before and I can not remember why  (WHY) I had to have them.

This year’s word is DO. So in keeping with that mantra I am trying to use the things I buy.

The Tim Holtz layered dies arrived in the mail this week. I was able to sneak the box by my husband and into the hoard room aka my studio. What is so special about these dies is that they are steel rule and therefore will cut thick materials with ease  (Mostly). AND they come with embossing folders that match!

SO as I needed several cards and I got them out to play. The first one I used to make a shaped card and it was so fun I made 2.
One white on white:
I layered vellum on top of white cardstock and topped it with pearls. I tucked some pearls behind the vellum layer so it will stay popped up.

And one in color:
I inked the card with pinks and oranges from Paper Trey Ink and for the darks I used
Vintage Photo.

Tomorrow I’ll show you what I did with the dragonfly!

I leave you in the Hands of the Creator!
