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.
Vóila.

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.
Tada.

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.
Simples.

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,
