Final Reminder for Blogversary Challenge... and Winner!!!

This was my final Reminder for my Blogversary Challenge!

 I offered the chance to win  a die from 
Craftstash - Stained Glass Rose Window,
 promising to post anywhere in the world.




I have made a few examples with my copy of this die: these two cards involved placing pink/gold card behind the die cuts.



This card used various coloured cards to paper-piece the die cuts.



Here are a couple of cards using the die as a stencil. 




My final examples using this die are a set of ATCs where the die has been used as a stencil or to make a die cut. I have also used Tonic ATC Collection dies, Craftstash number stamps and dies and a selection of embellishments.
The ATCs represent special anniversaries:


  
5 = Wood

Blogversary Challenge Reminder

A couple of weeks ago I published a post offering some blog candy!


In particular I offered the chance to win  a die from 
Craftstash - Stained Glass Rose Window,
 promising to post anywhere in the world.




So far I have had almost 150 people looking at the post - but only 1 person has entered...

I have made a few examples with my copy of this die: these two cards involved placing pink/gold card behind the die cuts.




This card used various coloured cards to paper-piece the die cuts.



Today I have used the die as a stencil with teal and aubergine sprays - through the dies and then using the ink on the die to make a second print.



I then cut the circles out:


I then used two of these circles as backgrounds on some quick Easter cards:



More details of these daffodils you will find in my video in Daffodils #2
