YIPES …birthday celebrations have interrupted my flow… so while I am sure its late here are a couple of the EASTER TYPE cards that I found on Pinterest and then made for the few EASTER CARDS I planned to send… they are pretty much just punches or dies… I did end up ordering a small set of ovals that were narrower than the ones I had… the ones I have work great for those dogs…I showed you… but you can see that my bunny ears looks too short…My dear friend and faithful reader just helped me fix some of the links…and then she told me that she just cut the ears more long ( is that even a phrase) and then used chalk to make the the pink inside… but I did show you below of the longer more narrow oval dies from amazon.
Well here we are again.. and the one thing I want to do is share with you one more TIP on how to cut intricate dies on your machine…This one was sent to me by my friend Janis Blevins and its a link to a YOUTUBE VIDEO at pattiestamps.typepad.com…Pattie is a STAMPIN UP representative and she has a blog which I have now subscribed to just to kinda see what she is showing… I am still a huge fan of DAWN’S but this is a great tip and worth sharing…EASY INTRICATE DIE CUTTING
Well while I was releasing my MINIONS on friends and family … Dawn, as usual was out there coming up with more fun with basic GATE FOLDS…( see previous post … DAWN’S WINDOW GATE FOLD ) This is only one of the posts I did using DAWN’S and my friend JANIS BLEVIN’S ideas on gate fold window cards… If you just type gate fold cards in the search box on my blog…you will come up with at least 3 different post for gate folds…. and as you can see from this POST we aren’t done yet….check it out and then know that if you don’t have the “LABEL” set of dies…you can use something similar… see mine …after I did it… I found I did have the LABEL set…too funny…. comes from having it all…LMAO
My current gate fold using different die to cut it cause I THOUGHT I didn’t have the one she used…HA turns out I did …that’s a sure sign that you have WAY TOO MUCH STUFF.lol
this was closed… and here it is open..
Ok so now she came up with another version of this but slightly different and even more fun. DAWN’S WINDOW FRAME GATE FOLD
This is really cool also since it actually slips one inside the other…it also has her trademark MULTI LAYERS… I love that she must really burn thru some paper…..but the truth is I have more paper than one person should own and so I should spend more time make more layers… her’s is a wedding but I think birthday would be great also…watch the video and you’ll understand how it works and see that it doesn’t have to be this die… it would work with almost any as long as you make the insert with a smaller cut die… circle…square or any of the many other shaped dies you may have…
If you check out the web site they supply you with a template of calligraphy and they tell you about purchasing the tattoo paper so that you can transfer it onto your eggs… I know its late but still thought you might find a chance to do it next year…if you save it…
SNOWSHOE ART...this is a link my sweetie found that was incredible…. look what this guy does just using his snow shoes…its just beautiful…
SPECIAL BIRTHDAY CARDS
This is so cool…when you pull the little flower on the right it rotates the complete circle and then you can wrap the cord around the center again and do it again , and again and again.. Very cool… she spoils me..
Bonnie is an excellent calligrapher and I love these type of letters…I have played with them but mine are trash compared to this one… it is just so lovely and she also spoils me.
Well that’s all for now… hope you Have a wonderful EGGSTRA special easter… AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY.. wire headed cyber toad…aka kath
