Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Chocolate Baroque - Mini Script and teeny weeny

Another of my DT pieces.....
 the colour combo of black and red turn a simple card into a stylish dramatic card!

The stamps are from the Mini Script (a love definition) and Teeny Weeny Stamp sets.  I stamped the rose twice, cut out one then used a masking technque to stamp the script behind.  The sentiment is from the Birthday Greeting stamp plate.

This is beautifully elegant & a lovely example of how to use a script stamp. Have a good weekend.

A very stylish card Ikki, and a great use of script. I can't wait to have a go with my teeny weeny stamps sets. Kate x

This is a really stylish card - love black, white and red. Thanks for letting me know about the surprise on the DT blog - double excitement today because the newsletter was waiting for me when I got home as well.

I wonder if you can help. I have recently purchased some Nellie Snellen dies and find they do not cut very well (certainly not as good as the Spellbinders)
I have two borders one is ok the other doesn't cut hardly at all. Also the squares of which the two small ones are great but the large one again doesn't work well. I use a Cuttlebug with the same sandwich as for Spellbinders. I have used different weights of paper and also tried running them through up to three times. I've also tried with an extra sheet of card but this buts quite a strain on my bug. You seem to use them so am I missing something?
