Die'sire Sneaky peak DT pieces.

Hi everyone

Hope you are all well. As you know I had the opportunity to become part of the Die'sire Design team and have been working hard to get the samples finished for next weeks show. I can now show you some sneaky peaks and say that the Fabulous Leann from Crafter's companion will be launching this lovely collection on Ideal world as the Pick of the day at 9pm and again 11pm on the 20th of March , then it will be through out the day on Ideal world and Create and craft.
Here is the first sneaky
This little box was made using the Perfect Paisley Embossing folder and also the Die'sire Camelia quilling flower it also has the Dahlia quilling flower and the Leaf 1 die on here too.
I added lots of lovely ribbon and a gorgeous sentiment to it and voila... My little box is complete.

The next item I would like to feature today is an Altered Art project which I am very happy with and  wanted to keep haha...

I love the techniques used in this Project with the acrylic paints and the crackle medium and the gold waxing.
All the flowers are again using the  gorgeous new Die'sire Die's all coming next week again here is the Camellia die in Large and Small and Dahlia die, I've used the Stamen die plus The Leaf 1 die.

If you would like to know how to do any of the techniques here leave me a comment and I Will do a tutorial blog, this post is really just to give you a sneak at the gorgeous products coming next week and hope you will support me by tuning in at some point on the 20th.

My last Item today is a card hope you like it.

 I love the colours here. This 8X8 card features The gorgeous papers of Craftwork Cards but has of course the Die'sire Range featured throughout.
This time I have used The lace flower Die but I have also used the negative side to the Die (so where The Lace flower is cut from on the paper the other side ) 
I have also used the Dahlia quill die to cut the black ribbon flowers and the Leaf 1 Die to cut pink and green leaves that are also stamped.
Lots of embossing with a Sheena Douglas stamp also featured on The Crafter's companion website.
I will be back tomorrow with more creations using this brilliant collection , I was so very pleased to get them all posted today and I hope you look forward to seeing them all go live on the 20th
Ideal world and the 21st on Create and Craft through out the day .

Crafty hugs and Best wishes

  4. love ur home sweet home wall hanging please can u tell me where to get the letters from are they made from clayxxx

    1. Hi Rachel , I made the letters from air dry clay and used a Martha stewart mould which also works with utee melted in the Melting pot if you enjoy using one like me. But the air dry clay is extremely easy and light and I used Paper artsy Treasure gold to colour them once they were all dry and I adhered them to the Hanging with pinflair glue. I am so glad you like it. Please ask me anything anytime and I love to hear from you all. Thanks Kim xx
