‘Use a Die Cut’ – Crafting Musketeer's Challenge #25


Hi Everyone

I am apologising for the lateness of this month’s challenge post as I was away at the weekend taking part in a series of fabulous workshops…which I lurved!

So onto the challenge details…..

Challenge #25, the theme is "Use a Die Cut"  and the sponsors  for this month are the fabulous JGD Crafts and The Hobby House.

So here’s a little about them.

"We are a friendly local business in the heart of Nottinghamshire, England. We specialise in both Card Making and Parchment craft products and tuition.

Janet Humphries (the owner) started her passion for what she does now as a hobby concentrating on mainly decoupage. After the shortage of local shops selling the goods she required, Janet then started running a business back in 2002 on a local market in Mansfield.

"Our retail shop is situated on the outskirts of Tetney, a small rural village near Cleethorpes. We also sell to Trade.

The Hobby House offers a wide range of craft supplies for you to browse and buy online,in our shop and around the country at craft shows. "

The prizes will be from JDG Crafts , something of the sponsors choice and from the Hobby House a voucher to use on their website.

So with the challenge of Use a Die Cut here we go and hope you like it.

This card has been made using a Creative Expressions die from the Sue Wilson Collection.  It has been cut into the card through the back and front and then just the edge cut on the outside edges of the card in white. It was cut again using black card for the centre front panel.  Also used was some Katy Sue moulds with Hearty Clay and coloured using Distress Inks before placing onto the moulds.  Once the elements were dry they were added to the card together with some Silky Crushed Ribbon for the luxurious bow detail.

Simple steps to reach a beautiful finish (even though I say it myself….lol).
