Card making stuff in evidence, there has been a flurry of snowflake cards (Sorry) made over the last few days.
I die cut a huge number of snowflakes on Saturday, as I have a few projects in mind with them. If I'd known how long it was going to take, I'm not sure I'd have bothered. An hour or so, I thought. Easy.What with multiple passes, shimming, finding the 'sweet spot' on the platform, recutting, it ended up taking me all day.
The only ones that cut first time, every time were the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Snowflake Alterations.
Those trays, by the way- I found a pack of them in a cupboard. Meant for party snacks, but thought they'd be really useful in my craft room, lol.
I made 3 cards like this, using layered up snowflakes.
These two were from earlier Tuesday, again layered snowflakes on top of an embossing folder.
Still plenty of snowflakes left.
And don't you just love a happy accident? I also cut a couple of Frame winter scenes, two ended up as cards for the Christmas Card Club (post here) on Sunday, and one odd one I put down on my desk, on top of some cardstock I'd stencilled a week or so ago.
I spotted it during the day, and thought 'Oooh, that works!'
So I ended up cutting another couple- many shims and waxed paper were used!- and now I have the makings for another 3 cards.
That'll be a project for later today.
Well, I'm done, and that just leaves
So, linking up at Julias place, The Stamping Ground, and I'll be around in a while.
Just seen, whilst getting the link, that Julia has a post about the 10th Anniversary Crop HERE. It's going to be on the 1st of June 2019, so lots of warning for you to make plans. And in Shrewsbury. It would be fantastic if we could make this a really big one, as I'm sure there can't be many blog hops that have been running this long!
