Edna takes a nap

Happy Friday everyone, it's Kat here!

So far I've been sharing some pretty CAS cards with you but I decided that Edna deserved something a little fancier.

However, it ended up less fancy than I intended because every single one of the papers in this pad are so gorgeous that I couldn't bear to cover them up too much by adding a lot of embellishments!

Now, anyone for a brew?!


If you would like more details on how I created this project, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a wonderful day!

Tiny Dancers

Hello everyone.  It's Annette here with my first design samples for Dies to Die For and I've got not one, but two cards to share with you today. 

This wasn't originally intentional, but I spent so long on the no-lines version of the Tiny Dancers image that when I'd finished it I decided to make a 'normal' lines version to compare the two!

First of all the 'no-lines' version:




And now here's the 'normal' version....

Owl yours

It's Kat here today and I'm super excited to be sharing my first DT post with you!

My Favourite Things have tempted me BIG time with their latest release, and top of my list to play with were these super cute owls and matching dies.


I've used one of the fun sentiments that comes with the stamps, and paper pieced the owl's little chest with red heart paper...adorable, don't you think?!


Have a fabulous day!

Sending Love with Stamping Bella

Hey everyone it's Elaine, returning to share some Stamping Bella inspiration today on the Dies to Die For blog. It feels like forever since I last posted. December and most of January totally kicked my butt, with minor ailment after minor ailment, followed by the HUGE new Stamping Bella release. Thankfully I seem to be on the mend and back to creating.

Happily I am just in time to share the news that our lovely Tracy has the aforementioned epic new Stamping Bella release available to pre-order right now at Dies to Die For!

You'll see some new additions to some enduring favourite collections - there's a new Uptown Girls stamp, new Tiny Townies and some of those hilarious Cool Chicks. But there are also some new ranges to get excited about! Make sure you check out the gorgeous new SQUIDGIES! Chubby and adorable, each of these new images comes in a set with two sizes of the same image - perfect for creating cards and smaller projects to go with them, or just for stamping on the envelope/inside of the card.

There are also some adorable new Valentine themed images, although really these will work all year round for "just because" cards, birthdays, etc. Let's take a look!

Meet BEE MINE. Ridiculously cute, isn't he?

 
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers


If you would like to watch me colouring this image you can watch the video below or in HD over on my YouTube channel!


Copic colours used are shown in the video.

The little bumblebear also appears in one of my favourite stamps from the release: The Bee and the Heart.

Wouldn't that gorgeous puffy heart look great paper-pieced too?
