Today is the last leg of the Crafters Companion marathon with me being in the evesham store today again demoing and playing. I have titles todays post Running Out because I am running out of projects to post. Tomorrow will see the first sneak peak for the launch of my new Die Collection on Hochanda tuesday night at 6pm! This means that I have been manically making samples using the new range and have got to the point where I am running out of projects I can share on the blog!
I hope you don't mind but today I thought I would share a couple of tags I made over the last couple of months using my sandwich box die set and the starflower dies and leaves.
The first one is made using silver gilt and the second using up a piece of scrap card I cleaned my brayer on. I love using this scrap card for flowers as the colours are so random and make unique flowers.
Join me from 6am tomorrow to see the first reveal from my new Gerbera Daisy collection.

Day 2 of the Crafters Companion road trip finds me today In the Chesterfield store so pop along and see what Im playing with!
Back to today and this is a card I made as a demo for the Hochanda shows earlier in the month but never got to! I used the wonderful Izink spray dyes to make the paper for the inset hearts I love the intensity of the course and the effects you get from juts spraying the ink onto the card.
Cut the smaller stitch dot heart twice into a piece of ice silver lustre card. Then cut 2 heart frames, again using the stitch dot hearts in black card and mounted these over the apertures I had created. I cut the bird and branch in black and cutting off the birdhouse that comes with the die I added this across the top so that the hearts appear to be hanging from the tree branch.
To emphasise this I drew lines, using a thick black alcohol pen, from the branch to the hearts.
