Friday Die-Day!

Hello friends,
Today I'm featuring one of the newer dies
from the clever Card Creator series 
Here are the dies, you receive 8 in the set.
This is how they look cut/embossed.
A little technique - using the second largest die, I have cut/embossed but left the die cut in the die.
I then applied some distress ink around the edges - Antique Linen.
Still keeping the die cut in the die I'm going to stamp the complete area.
This is my favourite - Texture Stamp - I do love a bit of script!
You can see it has stamped onto the outer edges of the die - no problem,
a quick wipe and it comes off easily.
And this is how it looks when removed from the die -
selective shading and stamping, you get the nice crisp edge.
Tag time!
This is one of the large craft tags from Ranger, I've cut it down a little bit and positioned the
largest die cut behind - a little different!
I'm starting to layer up various elements - using my personalised MyStik.
Adding my stamped die cut.
I found a flower (Jewel Flowers and Flourishes) left over from one of my classes and
some foliage, added a little bit of lace and vintage ribbon.
Fairly speedy.
I like the yellow/brown combo.
Close ups.
I do have one set of the A2 Fancy Postage Stamps dies available in my Amazon shop,
I like the versatility of these dies, they are listed as Card Creator but,
as you can see, great for other projects too.
Have a lovely weekend.
Take care.

That's really lovely Christine. Love the idea of the script over the die - very effective! I have just got the Exquisite Circle and would love to see these on FDD at some point! x

Hi Christine. Happy FDD, lovely tag. I love your step by step instructions, so detailed and your choice of papers/card is amazing. Would never have thought of combining these colours. I have polka dot die and find it very versatile. Have a great weekend.

Morning Christine, I absolutely love this tag, it is fantastic, part way down I wasn't too sure how it was going to turn out, but it all came beautifully together at the end, loving the flowers and the 'belly band' lace is gorgeous, love the colours too.
Have a lovely weekend.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine,
wonderful dies so handy to have. Love the tag. Thank you for the wonderful tutorial. You know I was the one who said I had never made a tag. In ten years of card making. Well guess what I have now made 2. Carole Z told me on my blog once you have started to make them you won't stop, and of course now I'm hooked. lol.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
