Summer Swinging

I've changed the layout of my blog and no longer post ON the card that it won a challenge, but I just have to break my new system and yell out to everyone:  I WAS INVITED -- AND ACCEPTED -- AN INVITATION TO JOIN THE PAPER SHELTER DESIGN TEAM!!!!!  Yes, and it was this card that I entered!  I am so honored, excited and nervous, to be on a team with so many fantastic cardmakers! Please come back to my blog on September 25 to see my first DT card for The Paper Shelter!!!  Yes, I am walking on a cloud!!!!!

Oh, to be this young and carefree...sitting and swinging and enjoying nature all around. This sweet image is from The Paper Shelter, an all digital company. There are so many cute images on that website that I know you'll have the same problem I do...trying to live within my stamping budget.



I've colored my image with Copics, the die around the image is by Sizzix, the flowers are from Wild Orchid and my stash, the leaf punches are by Martha Stewart and Floral Punch. The green doily behind the image was a gift from my BFF Lillian who purchased it while visiting me and then diecut me some before she went home and the papers are from my local scrapbook store. To put this card in perspective, it is 6"x6".



The Paper Shelter is holding a DT call and I'm hoping they'll consider me for their Team.

                                                                        Hugs,
                                                                        Gail

  15. Hi Gail! Thank you for your lovely comment :)

    This is the die: http://www.gokreate.co.uk/epages/BT4188.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/BT4188/Products/360030

    but I don't have it! I simply received a card with this shape from a friend and I used it to create a shape that I use to cut out my cards with scissors! This die is bigger than usual and you need a larger cutting machine that the normal Big Shot, I'm sorry

    BUT, there is a good news too! You have the smaller die that can be used with the Big Shot, you can find it here: http://www.gokreate.co.uk/epages/BT4188.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/BT4188/Products/160030, even if it's currently unavaible...

    I hope this can help!

    Hugs, Franz.

    ps: fab card, so lovely!
