As summer began and spring ended (officially on Wednesday), I was finishing up some spring cleaning by going through my
junk, stash of goodies...embellishments and leftovers that end up in a box for me to use on my scrap. The box was getting a little bit full and I was determined to purge.
I usually describe my style as "a little bit of everything". This card is definitely a little bit of everything... it's like a "Where's Waldo".
I spy with my little eye...a doily, a butterfly, acrylic, satin roses, a tag, pearls, eyelet, burlap, tulle, leaves, and a bird. Did I forget anything?
Earlier this week, I got to play with Fiskars' new die-cutting and letterpress machine, The Fuse. I was impressed with how easily it cut through all different material including grunge board and 10 sheets of paper at one time! People were lining up to make mini-books!
Each shape, has interchangeable design plates (I used the clock plate seen on this card) that can be inked and then ran through the machine that die-cuts and letterpresses all in one swoop! Eventually, there will be tons of dies and designs, and large 12 inch dies to make boxes and bags. I can't wait!
It's always fun to play with something new!
And, who knows what you will find when you do a little cleaning?
