Playing with New Dies

Hello Everyone.  I hope you are having a great week so far.  I'm so tired helping my sister organise an event last weekend, but we're happy it turned out pretty well.

Today, I'm sharing some cards made recently with some new dies I got to play with.  These dies are awesome!!

Here's the first card - I used the new Bo Bunny Gabrielle 6x6 pad (so beautiful papers!) for this card.  I hope you can see all the gorgeous details in those die cut butterflies - they are the Dimensional dies by Cheery Lynn Designs.  On hindsight, I think I should have inked the die before embossing the butterflies for more dimension.

Here's the second card.. notice that beautiful doily behind the lampshade?  I love it!!  It's called Italian Flourish doily and it's just amazing.

The last card has a more detailed doily - Kiwi Doily.  I love the details in the doily and how beautiful it looks.  There's embossing and piercing all in just one die.  How awesome is that!

I guess you can tell how much fun I've had with the new Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  I think I'm going to have to collect more of the CLD dies. 

Till the next post... have a lovely day!

These new dies are beautiful. Love both the doilies and the butterfly. Have to check these out. What machine did you run them through? I love the lamp also. Is that a stamp? Let me know when you make it home and have had a chance to relax a little.

The lamp is beautiful... gives the card a 'homely' appeal.
