Let's mix it up!

Hello friends

So I didn't quite get to that blog post yesterday,
I have a myriad of excuses I really do! 
I was trying to upload some step photos of my mixed media project 
and my laptop and phone did not want to play.
It was touch and go which one was going to fly out of the window first!

Today instead, let me share with you a project using die cuts and foiling,
mixing it up a bit.

This is Ringlet Round and Elegant Border,
both designed by Becca Feeken (my current travelling partner!)
Onto an ivory card base I've matted gold foil card.
I then hot foiled Elegant Border onto ivory card and die cut to a slightly
smaller square and affixed this in place with Crafty Power Tape.


I die cut Ringlet Round twice, once with ivory and with gold mirror
card to create that fine drop shadow.
Positioned over the Elegant Border.


Finishing touch, sentiment die cut and little gold flowers, leaves and pearls.


Items used today with clickable links:


Other news:
For those who have been asking about the Jane Davenport 
die cutting machine, we have them in stock, limited amount but I think
we are possibly the first in the UK!
And back to my mixed media project/ideas, please stay tuned,
I'm making lists upon lists of ideas right now, plans for 
some very different things using dies and foiling! 

Take care friends.
