More Bee Balm...

Happy Thursday,

Today I thought I would share another new dies from the Bee Balm collection here is a closer look at the Bee Balm Background which matches, as shown here, with the Bee Balm Ovals perfectly ( its almost as if they were designed that way lol)
The background was designed so that either of the ovals will match one of the edges on it so that you can easily pattern build with having a separate outside cutting line.

I added the butterflies this time using the large butterflies set to add a little detail to what is a quick simple card, honest!

Swirling Leaves...

Happy Wednesday,

Today I promised I would share a card using the new, to be launched on Friday night, Swirl leaves die that matches with the Bee Balm collection.

For todays card I have matched the leaves with another new set launching on friday the birds and cages.

To kmae the spray I simply cut the dies ( the set has 2 dies in mirror image so that they 'go' each way) once in white and once in silver and shaped them before creating the flourish down the card.

I added in the butterflies, yes these will keep appearing as I love the delicacy of them, and the cages along with the detailed debossed birds that come with the cages.

Floating Butterflies...

Happy Tuesday,

Today I am sharing a card made with another new die from the Bee Balm Collection the Bee Balm Ovals along with the new Large Butterflies.

The Butterflies have been designed in the same manner as the Dragonflies with a solid die and a matching delicate overlay die there are so many ways you can use these!

For this card I used the Largest Die form the ovals sets and cut it twice into a piece of card facing to make a large circle.  I shaded through the die to add the colour and simply added the foliage - more on this tomorrow- and the Large butterflies.

The range will launch on Friday night on Hochanda at 6pm.

Bee Balm Peek!...

Happy Monday,

I had a fab weekend in Kent at the Create It show and it was so lovely to meet so many old and new friends and members of the blog family!

I promised yesterday that I would be starting to sneak peak my new collection today so I present the Bee Balm collection.  This is all based arround the Bee Balm flower ( a Bergamot but I prefer the Colloquial name Bee Balm!)

This is a deceptively simple card made using g the Bee Balm flower plate die and matching stamp set.  As with the Gerbera Daisy there is a single stamp with all the flowers own it and a matching plate that slots over using the registration marks on the corner of the stamped image.  The stamped bees come form the stamp set wit the flowers.

I simply added the swirl leaves die and some hat pins to finish.

The whole range will launch this Friday at 6pm as the One Day special on Hochanda keep watching this week for more sneak peaks or tune in on Friday or through the day Saturday.

All but the Kitchen Sink...

Happy Saturday,

If you get chance tune in today at 11am for the launch of my Media Dies on Hochanda.  I thought I would share a more complex card today using g all the sets to make a real, hopefully, steam punk style card!

I have even added a spiffing sam into this one!

I used foil Alcohol inks and everything on my craft desk for this one but although its messy I really like the way it looks!

There is also a sneak peak of a set of dies that will launch next Friday night on Hochanda ( tune into the blog on Monday for the sneak peeks of these!)
