Crafting around Isle of Wight

Happy Christmas. So this loop is the launch of Christmas it is hard getting started but if you make a couple a week it's not so hard. This is a simple die cut heart easel. The base card is made using the nesting dies run the die through your machine and then turn the die by 90 degrees and run it through the machine again. The added piece of the card is a piece of mirri card cut with the scalloped heart. Stick this to the card and then cut and chalk another plain heart. Stick to the mirri and finish with the Noel Chipboards.
Wow so simple yet so effective You will need a Tim Holtz alterations die and the mover and shaper butterflies. I created a card base using the TH die and then made this into an easel card. The added piece of the easel was cut with the mover and shaper butterflies magnetical stuck to the die this then allows us to cut it all in one go. I then cut a piece of the new glittered vellum which I stuck to the back of the card front. This was then coloured with my permanent markers. All the edges were chalked with my fluid chalks. The butterflies were chalked and stuck with a little Stick it glue. Finish off with gems and flowers and a message from the Birthday A4 collectors pack.
Quick and simple matting and layering and a couple of Noel Chipboards.
Forever friends is always popular and these stepper cards are going to be very popular.
How I love these nesting dies the flower was made with them as well. That butterfly is sweet as well and was made with a mover and shaper die.
A new fold for this loop so pop along to one of my demos to find out how, or watch this space as I will be loading up instructions at the end of the month.
How cute are these new stamps a 3 for 2 so a great price.
Easel with draws I will be showing this one again next week.
