Brand New Releases from Craft Stash

Hello Blogland.

Oh boy am I excited to share some brand new releases from 
out today from the fabulous

These dies are so versatile and a must have for anyones die collection.
They are thin dies and you get a crisp clean cut every time.

So let me show you the dies I have been fortunate to work with.
I got the idea in my head to have the bird cage suspended (well that style of cage usually are right?) so I matted a card blank with my background paper then used a die to cut a large circle out in the center. I used the cut background paper on the inside of the card for a backdrop.
I then glued flowers in place to make a frame.
I cut the Bird Cage twice and glued together to make it nice and thick then used gilding wax in a brass tone for a gilded look.
Using 2 large bronze jump rings and poking a tiny hole in the top of the card I attached the cage to the card.

You have no idea how much I wished I had this die a while ago!
I love the simplicity in the design of it and as you can see the die cut mirror card stock easily.
The moment I saw this die in my package I just knew what I was going to do.
Make a wedding card (believe me this is not a theme of card I make often).
I wanted to keep this nice and simple.
I cut a piece of black cardstock slightly smaller than my base card and embossed it using an embossing folder.
I cut 2 wine glasses and glued those to the embossed card, I then glued 2 bows to the stems.
I then stamped the sentiment in versamark and brushed perfect pearls over it.
matted onto mirror card and glued this to the card.

Another nice and simple card using different technique.
I masked a border on a card base and brushed ink in different colours blending them into each other.
I then used a background stamp with versamark stamping all over. I then brushed perfect pearls to 'highlight' the design.
I cut the Happy Birthday in both black and white and offset them to give the illusion of shadow.
And that is it.

This die threw me completely so I was grateful to have been sent an embossing folder that matched it (no link for that at this moment).
I took some green cardstock cut to size to fit the folder and run through the machine.
I lightly smudged ink to emphasize the design.
I cut the Toucan in black and glued to some white and orange card and cut around to make him stand out a bit more.
Glued him onto the embossed card and matt and layered onto matching cardstock and card base.
I added a sentiment at the last moment which I thought finished the card brilliantly.
Not bad for going out of my comfort zone.

Hope you like the samples I have made,
