Tuesday Tip/Technique

Hello friends
Both Tuesdays and Fridays seem to come around quickly now!
Today's tip/technique is a little idea with layering your die cuts.
Instead of placing one on top of the other, consider 
cutting/embossing a die cut with a smaller die out of the middle area.
 Then reinsert the die cut on foam pads.
It allows the patterned paper to show through underneath.
I appreciate many of you may do this but I've been contacted by new
crafters so I'm covering a variety of techniques - beginners and advanced.

Today is Introduction to Scrapbooking class at the shop...
I'm thinking coffee and walnut cake!

Announcing the May Charity Kit winning ticket tomorrow so stop by.

Take care friends.

Hoorah poinsettias it must be Christmas very soon.
Sorry about that but the poinsettia is one of my all time favourite dies, and yes I must start making cards for Christmas soon.
Thanks for reminding us of this tip, it is so easy to get caught up in the latest thing and forget older techniques.
Keep up the good work
Hugs to you and the boys

Hi Christine,
Great tip and it's good to be reminded, I love this poinsettia, and wish it could be used all year round, & like Linda, I may have to start my Christmas cards soon. Enjoy your class and coffee and cake.

Sandra said...

Good Morning Christine,
Thank you for the Tuesday Tip, I think that tips are suitable to all levels of skill, even if you are more experienced it's great to revisit some older ideas, that we have done and forgotten.
My Tuesday Tip, don't let your children persuade you into having pets, one of our two new babies, Milo is really not himself, so I have been up all night worrying about the poor little mite! Vets opens in ten minutes thank goodness!
Catch up with you all later,
Sandra xx

Morning Christine
Great Tuesday tip, such a pretty card. I also love the pointsettia die, but it's too early for me to be thinking about making Christmas cards though!
Enjoy your scrapbook class.

Hi Christine. Thank you for the tip today. It's good of you to remember that there are always beginners as well as more advanced crafters out here. It's always good to be reminded of various ways anyway, especially if your memory is like mine! : ) I usedto hate thinking about Christmas too early, but since starting to make my own cards I love seeing projects and cards about it : ) (I use the poinsettia die all year round, with a few tweeks you can make different flowers etc. It's one of my most used dies)
Enjoy the Introduction to Scrapbooking class, and the coffee and wlnut cake : ) Take care.

Thanks for the tip Christine. I haven't done anything like this with my dies before and I sometimes find that I don't use the smallest die in the set very often. This technique would mean they would get used more often.
Great to see the poinsettia die out and about. Like the other ladies I love this die and use in constantly for Christmas cards. Is it too soon to start that marathon card making session I wonder?
Enjoy your day - the cake sounds delicious.

Pretty card Christine. I am planning to make a coffee and walnut cake for a Crafternoon Teaparty I am holding on Saturday. I'm going to make a chocolate one too, for those who
might not be able to tolerate nuts.

The Party is a fund raiser for Cancer Research, so I hope it goes well.

Janice said...

Hi Christine, it's always good to be reminded of techniques we may have forgotten! There are just so many things that can be done with Spellbinders.
