Playing with my new Tattered Lace Dies

Good Afternoon All
Wow what a horrible wet and cold day it is
I hope you have all recovered from your New Year Celebrations
Today I have been playing with some new  Tattered Lace Dies
I received for Christmas
as I have made 2 cards .
Everyone who has used them says how easy they are to get out
of the dies and they really are,  and they cut so well using my other
new toy an Ebosser.  I have been so busy doing DT samples over the
past few weeks I have not been able to use them until this week.
For my 1 st. card  I have used the Tattered Lace Cycle from the His and Hers collection
and I have also had a go at making my own background ( all because I was watching
a recording of Julia Watts from Creative Expressions this morning )
I do need more practise though)
I used Tattered Lace stamps and embossed them on the bottom of the first layer
a mask I cut out using the Cameo to randomly  ink through with Distressed inks
I then embossed the top half using an embossing fold from Spellbinders
I also used a spellbinder die for the circle behind the Cycle.

The 2nd card  uses the Tattered Lace Sawing Machine and all the other gorgeous bits that come with it, Scissors, Thimble, bobbin and safety pin. But, I do need
to find another way of making a table as the legs look a  little  wobble!
The background papers all embellishments & sentiment where from and created using Serif CA 2 &MCS.
However, as there is no day light my photos are not good.
Thank you for taking the trouble to visit my blog and wade through
this longer than normal blog.

Two fabulous cards Janet. Love the background and colours on the first one, and the sewing one is gorgeous, love all the die cuts. There was a die that Nancy said could be chopped and turned upside down to make a table, but unfortunately I can't remember which one it was!! - sorry - I'm sure if you look at some of your other dies you will find one that will fit the bill xx
