Good morning from a freezing cold Thessaloniki !
Over at Get Creative we are having a card and scrapbooking fest for the whole of January with each member of the design team setting their own challenge. The winners who will be chosen by the relevant DT member will be our guest designers for the month of March giving us all the month off !!. All of the entries will also be placed into the random generator thingy and the overall winner will receive a fabulous prize from our sponsor this month Sfragidomania
The theme I have chosen is to use die cuts or punches anywhere your heart desires on your card. Here are my DT Pieces.
My trusty Silhouette made most of this card for me , well I did help a little. The base , flower and doily plus the sentiment all got the Silhouette touch and just the base of the labels was cut with my spellbinders die no 14 .
For this next one although not a card could be easily adapted. I made a paper frame which I edged with velvet ribbon and lace, the large flower was cut with Spellbinders circles and TH tattered leaves die. the centre of the flower and the embellishment on the top of the card and are made from Fimo. I first made silicone molds filled them with white Fimo ( the air drying light type ) and when dry I lightly rubbed gold ink across them . The heart is also made from Fimo but I used a cookie cutter in this case and stamped it with my fave SU swirly stamp. I must say I am having so much fun making these silicone molds but that’s a whole other post ! The ballerina the corner edge and the top of the card where made with my Silhouette.
I do like my close ups !
I would also like to link these to Papertake Weekly, one of my dear blogging friends Katina ( one of the nicest ladies you could ever possibly meet ) is on the DT here and have been wanting to take part in one of their challenges for ages their challenge is to use Buttons, Bows Bling and Blooms or a combination thereof .
I was having so much fun playing with my die cuts that I got carried away so here are a few non DT pieces I made.
This a little stationary set I made with my Silhouette which folds flat into the envelope then pops up once removed, inside is a little card on which you can write a little note

Last of all a little paper lantern made with …yes you’ve guessed it made with my Silhouette, can you tell I love it ! All this though without the aid of my pokey tool which has done a runner !! Believe you me trying to get those fiddly bits out with the aid of a tooth pick is a little tiresome to say the least. So if anyone has seen the little blighter and am mentioning no names ARI ( well obviously I am my sixteen year old ) please return it or there will be no gigging this weekend !!!
I do hope I have inspired you a little to take part in this challenge but if its not for you please pop over to Get Creative there are so many super challenges going on this month that I’m sure you will find one to your liking. You have up until the 31st of the month to upload your entry and don’t forget the winner of my challenge will take my place in March.
So have fun and get Creative.
Right am off into the cold to go to work brrr
