Same card, different look

In the best tradition of the way I do things, last year I bought this hanging star die. Shopkeeper Gal and I are quite sure that I used it in a workshop, but neither she nor I can recall the card. Must have been really striking huh! But this year, it has spoken to me. See - it may take a year but hey, I'll get an idea eventually!


This white and blue shades card was for a workshop last week. I made it over complicated by having to explain how to do it. Much easier to look and see than read written instructions! It started life as this Kraft based take....and I like them both. Be my guest, like one or the other, like 'em both. Eminently repeatable, just for the want of some die cutting. Unless you're doing fifty of them. Thats 100 banners and 150 snowflakes. Why would you? I don't know. Ask our Debbie, she seems to specialise in multiples at this time of year. And hers are all par excellence.

For me, these two are probably enough. Bored now, move on and find another design/die/stamp to make another couple of cards with. Part of the joy for me is definitely the infinite variety out there. I am very probably the retailer's idea of a good customer. Easily bored, uses her stuff for a few minutes and wants to move on. But..remember, this die is already a year old in my stash.  At least I revisit!

You made me chuckle today Julia! that's a good excuses to keep buying new stuff, a low boredom threshold! Do like the cards though - but it's not for me, diecutting 50 of each! That would bore me.

lol... I've had stash-stuff that's lain around for ages - sometimes you know you like something, you just have to wait until that like transforms into a crafty idea :) I do love both the cards... at first the blues was my favourite because it is all icicle and frozen looking, then I changed my mind and preferred the kraft/traditional colours... then I changed my mind again... and again... So... LOVE them both lol
