Hi my friends, I send you all greetings and my very best wishes on this World Kindness Day!
A day to say thank you for the kindness you have shown in caring and thinking about Dave and myself over the last two months when life was painfull, and difficult. Your kindness in sending messages from all over the world has been a great comform and very much appreciated by us both. I hope on this day that life is well with you and yours and that kindness surrounds you. There is a saying "little things mean a lot!" - how true we have found this to be!!
It seems that I have not been posting a great deal of crafting or tutorials of late. One reason, although being on the EIDT is a fab experience and I'm enjoying the challenge, it is time consuming and because we are producing samples of new stamps I'm not able at the time to share them with you. So, I was very excited to learn that the new Family Christmas stamps are being released soon and you will be able to visit the gallery and see what we have all been up to!?!?!?
In the meantime I thought you might like to see one of my Christmas cards made with EI stamps
I have used 2 sizes of mega rectangle dies - one larger stamped, coloured with distress inks and Promarkers and then triple embossed. The smaller embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. The circle is another Spellbinder die stamped, coloured and guess what? Yes, triple embossed. Although these dies may have been about for a long time, they are still useful aids to crafting, and by combining different dies you can certainly make interesting cards! Have you looked at your old dies recently? Have you tried combining different shapes? Have you any interesting examples to show me? Would love to hear from you!
Thanks for dropping by, kind regards,
