Clean and simple is my favourite style of card. Doesn't this branch die from the Artistic Dies look elegant silhouetted in black on a crumb cake base? I've also used the Rectangle Stitched dies and the Bark Embossing Folder to add a little texture. That snazzy greeting shape is from the Pierced Blooms dies. One nice thing about putting my dies on black magnetic backing sheets is that it helps really highlight those extra ones you find in packs like this great shape. I know I'll be using that one a lot. Well worth throwing a pack of those adhesive backed Artistry Blooms sequins into your cart when you're next ordering - they're great colours and so easy to add to a project for a final simple flourish.
How are you? I'm super grateful I managed to get away for a lovely craft retreat last weekend before the cases took off again and we are back to staying close to home. A handful of friends and I went to Craftaways in Rye. It is a great little place all set up for groups of up to 10 crafters or quilters. Had a most enjoyable weekend of getting back into the creating mood again after a bit of a break away from the inks. I was rather chuffed with myself that I managed to get all my craft gear unpacked and put away just after I got back - that sometimes takes me a few weeks. Wink!
Hope you are keeping warm and keeping the spirits up.
Take care, Sue
Would you like a tour of my craft room? I always love seeing people's craft spaces. Here's mine on a sort of tidy day. :-)
