Friday Die Day

Hello friends
I'm in shock!  How could I have missed it??? 
One of the die sets I use most frequently and I've realised I've never featured it on Friday Die Day!!
I must put the record straight....
this week it is Jewel Flowers and Flourishes - one of my absolute 'go to' die sets.
Flowers - check, butterflies - check, foliage - check!
You receive 9 die templates with this set.
 This is how they look cut/embossed. 
 I'm very keen on the little leaves, the embossing is wonderful....
but remember if you flip them over and stencil through them....
add a little bit more ink around the edges - the detail is perfect. 
Tag time...covered with pretty paper.
Placing a further patterned strip and ribbon. 
 Adding the Jewel Flowers and Flourishes...but, is there something missing?
 Yes! A butterfly....
 A close up picture.
Yesterday's card, a lot of you have asked what paper I used...I promise to find out!
I recall grabbing it from my 'odd box' and I'm hoping there is still some in there so I can find out the manufacturer.  I will rummage next time I'm down at the studio.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
Take care friends.

As always Christine a great FDD and beautiful tag! You are such an inspiration, thank you so much for sharing.
Not sure if this question has been asked before so apologies if it has; what do you use to attach the paper to the tag?
Have a great day and wonderful weekend everyone.

What a lovely tag. I do have this die set and its gorgeous I do use it loads


Sandra said...

Morning Christine,
FDD at its best! Love this set of dies, I also love what you have done with them.
What size tags do you use and do you sell them? I like the idea of using tags as they are not as daunting as a big white space of card.
I have also noticed a bit of a resurgence of ATC's , I love those mini works of art and I thought that today's tag could easily be copied on an ATC.
Do you do ATC's Christine?
I would like to wish you all a lovely crafty weekend, I have heard rumours of a return of the 'white stuff'
Warm hugs,
Sandra Riley

Hi Christine, I LOVE Die Day!! It's great seeing the finished articles when they come out of the die. So much better than trying to visualize them! I love the colour combination and your use of tags..I must get some (tags) and make some up..:)..this set of dies is now going on my wish list. You should get commission from Spellbinders for all the extra sales generated from your a great day/

Lacelady said...

Lovely ideas, but I would translate them onto a card, as I'm not so keen on tags.

Beanie said...

I too love this die and the leaves get cut every week as they are so versatile! I usually stick to making cards but seeing your tag has inspired me to have a go. Thank you for sahring your gorgeous ideas. xx
