Wish Upon a 'Star'.

Hello and Welcome to my post for
Just Us Girls 
Hosting our Trend Week is
Carol choosing a Celestial Theme.

I do love the results you get with Lindy's Magicals
 as they make spectacular backgrounds and this
is what I used here.
After I got the result I liked I inked up
trees from Repeat Impressions  with 
Tim's Black Soot. Splattered some twinkling stars
with iridescent medium. The hill was die cut and 
coloured with Starlight Black Wax.
Attached in front of the trees. 
Added some glittery punched stars and sentiment
cut twice from ARTplorations.
The front die has been heat embossed 
with metallic silver powder with the white
 one added for a shadow effect.
Finished by attaching to navy card base.

Pop over and see what our Guest Linda
and the Design Team created.
Love to see you in the Gallery this week.

Thanks for popping in.

It's 'Enchanting'

Hello and Welcome to today's post for
It's time for our Anything Goes with Dies Challenge.
I recently received this gorgeous 
and was itching to try it out.
I decided to use a piece of Yupo Paper
that I inked up with Alcohol Inks as it was thin
and hoped it would cut nicely in my old Cuttlebug.
It did take some cutting and even after several attempts
there was a teeny bit I cut with some fine point scissors.
I know I NEED a new die cutting machine just don't know
which way to go!
I put some Tombow glue on my craft mat and
sponged the back of the die and adhered it to
 metallic card stock.
All I needed to do now was add a sentiment and I chose
Pop over and see what die cuts my Team Mates used
and join us in the Gallery this month.

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop!

I'm 'Metal'ie Thinking of You.

Hello and Welcome.
I am finally getting back to normal after my
recent Birthday Celebrations.
 Today I am posting for the New Challenge
 over at CAS Mix Up where my
 Super Talented Good Friend
MacMable is Host choosing

Here is my first take on this challenge
(yes there will be more)

My Mix is Metal, Stamping
Heat Embossing and more...
I started by cutting out my background from
Uniquely Creative Cross Hatch Texture Die
Heat embossing with Stampendous 
Aged Copper Embossing Enamel
(don't you love the 2 toned colours)
You need to heat emboss from underneath
otherwise the enamel will fly off somewhere else
I then cut 2 dies from Tim's Wildflowers.
These were heat embossed differently with
Stampendous Chunky White and Aged Copper
also adding Cyan Pearl Pigment Powder
while still melting. I did have a bit of trouble
with the white trying to hang on to the thin stems
while heating from the bottom.

Here's a close up!

My background is lightly sponged with
Ken Oliver's Liquid Copper Powder.
I distressed the edges and inked with Versacolor Bronze
I then attached the Cross Hatch Die and flowers.
Inked my sentiment from 49ANDMarket.
Attached a tiny die cut bow from Waffle Flower
and finished by adhering to white card base. 

Thanks so much for dropping in.
