Dream Valley - 38 - Die cuts and Punches

Hey everyone.

Another fortnight have gone by so quickly. And here we have another fab challenge over at Dream Valley Challenges. Lots of gorgeous DT creations, so why not pop over for a nosy and join in. :)

This fortnight the challenge is 'Die cuts and Punches'. Two lovely sponsors this time.

Over at One Stop Card Crafts you can win a £10 voucher to spend in their online store.

And over at Inked Treasures one lucky winner will get four images of their own choice.

For my DT project this fortnight I decided to take an old frame I found in my craft stash and spice it up a bit. (I am SO bad, have about ten of these, still packaged up in plastic!!)

The DP are from DCWV, they are called Street Lace. I layered with lots of black and grey card stock to make it pop out a bit.

The image was a freebie from Saturated Canary. I coloured her in with Pro Markers. The sentiment I stamped with my mini alphabet stamps from Hampton Arts. Can't get enough of these! 

The ribbon was a freebie from a magazine. I made one piece into a bow and the other one I gathered up and sew a line to make it look rouched. 

The hat pins, craft wire, heart charm, bead spacers and mini beads are from my local craft shop. The stick on graphite pearls are from Habico.

I went totally punch and die daft on this project. For the image I used a die from Crafts -Too. For the scalloped borders I used a Stampin Up punch. 

The heart shaped die is from Spell binders Nestabilities. For the big flower I used a Tim Holtz die for the rosette. I also used a circle, a scalloped circle and Boho flower punches, all from Stampin Up.

Really enjoyed making this. Am obsessed by colouring grey scale at the moment, so my house will no doubt be full of little projects in frames. :}

Thanks for coming by. 

Hope to see you all join in with us over at Dream Valley.
