A Friday-Die Day Follow-Up and a Winner!

Hello friends,
I've been rummaging...under my bed!  I keep boxes under my bed full of projects that I've made.
I need to keep a lot of them because they are sometimes requested for magazines, design teams, TV etc 
but it does get a bit scary when you discover projects you barely remember making! 
This is one of them and it features the dies I showcased last Friday for Friday Die-Day.
I decided I would like to share it with you because it proves how versatile a die set can be.
I've used three of the dies from the set, layered onto stamped canvas and lace.
Unity Stamp Company make a coordinating stamp set for this die set, very pretty but unfortunately in the States so it does bump up the cost I'm afraid.
Nonetheless, if you haven't already tried it  - experiment with stamping on canvas and on to your die cuts.
Now, I need to announce a winner.  I've reinstated Bella as a 'working dog' - 
that's if picking out names out of a spotty cup constitutes working! 
Here she is.....she ran off with the winning ticket to her special red blanket!
I snatched it away to reveal the winner is...........................

PATRICIA 

Congratulations!
Please drop me an email: christine.emberson@blueyonder.co.uk
and I will make sure your E-Z Dots Permanent is sent out to you straight away.
My Amazon shop is getting a little more stocked up now, stop by now and again to see new products.
Today I'm off to my crafty studio to finalise my class on Saturday - 
I think I may have to post a sneak peek tomorrow!
Have a lovely day dear friends.

Morning Christine, An absolutely beautiful card today, simply gorgeous. I love the die-cuts with the stamping on them, it totally changes the look of the die-cut. I spent most of the weekend organising my dies, I have cut up my magnetic sheets and have stuck inside the folders with the dies on them, that tip was brilliant. Only problem is, I have run out of magnetic sheets, and still loads of dies to do, I have some bought but not arrived yet. I think it may be me who is the winner, will email to check. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine, Lucky Patricia - enjoy your goodies.
Oh, and its so good to see that adorable little scamp back on the blog. We've missed her(give her a big kiss and a hug towelcome her back)
Going to hop over and have a peek at the goodies on offer.
By the way Christine, thats one place I'm not able to store bits and bobs - under the bed. But its a different matter when it comes to our attic!! Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x

Teresa said...

beautiful as always, thank you xx

Bea said...

what a fab project Christine - love how you have used most of that set - I did try out the technique you showed last Friday and it did work quite well although have learnt that I need some new cutting plates as the scores showed on the embossed part. i will certainly have a go at using a canvas for stamping as often thought about it but got no further. thanks for sharing

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Hi Christine,
Don't you just love looking over older creations also to find something you created that you think, Ooh I haven't used that technique or layout for a while, Must try that again?!
This is a lovely card and the stamping is beautiful.
congrats to Patricia.
Thanks for the update on your Amazon shop, will take a look later.
Regards Linda x

Hello Christine :o)
Beautiful card... it's always good to have a rummage under the bed ;o)
Just watching a late night re-run of one of your shows on C&C and it was me that was pulled out of the cup!
Alas.... your beautiful creation never arrived :o( I was soooo excited to be 'the chosen one'. Never mind. I can appreciate all your wonderful cards right here on your blog.
Thank you so much for sharing.

Gorgeous card - it really shows off how fab these dies are. I have a roll of canvas that I haven't used yet - maybe I should give stamping on it a try xx
