Something New

 Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors.

Today sees the start of another new challenge over at
Daisy Chain 

  We are a monthly challenge that will
start on the 5th of each month and end on the last day of the month.
We are a themed challenge and this month the theme is:-

The theme is-:
Something New

For my card I have chosen to work with my new dies, that were
a present to myself.


1. Started with a blank cream card and to this I have added
one of my new dies from The Paper Boutique called
Just For You.

2. I used the die on brown card and cut out  completely
  as with this die you can use it to cut into the card stock
as well. I decided to position it at an angle an glued
it flat to the card.

3. The large die leaves the centre in the card stock but
you also get another separate square and I have used
it to die cut another square from cream card and
secured to the card with foam tape.

4. The sentiment is also part of the set and comes with
not just the words but with a plain die that is the
shape of the words. Adding the words to this gives
the shadow effect, how good is that!!.  I cut the
words from cream card and the shadow background
from brown.

5. Added brown pearls to the centre square and then
used Tonic Nuvo Drops the created the cream pearls
around the frame.

I just love these new dies and bought the set, so
I think you might be seeing more he! he!.

Thanks for calling
Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
