I recently invested in a magnetic plate for my Sizzix Big Shot. Why didn't I get this sooner with all the die cutting I do! If you don't have one I highly recommend getting one.
The first card is for the Impression Obsession challenge - Summer Fun. I have some of their dies and thought I would try and put one together, They want you to use all their products and the second card uses some other dies.
Sunrise at the Marsh
Using dies 187-L shorebirds, 087-P cattails, 060-I Grass border, 178-C small grass border
The scallop border frame is a Pretty Pink Posh die
I blended Tim Holtz distress inks to get my background- Mustard yellow, Spiced marmelade and Worn lipstick
The dragon flies I gut of vellum and sprayed them with Colorshine in Mint Green and gold
No greeting as yet , because then I can use it for whatever.
My second card is of moose in the marsh.
Moose die- Marianne design
I also put copper stickles on top of the cattails
Hope you got to be creative today.
