New Home

Hello there, the new, online craft shop, craftstash.co.uk, which is run by the super talented people at Practical Publishing (Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine plus many more), have developed and designed their own range of dies called Apple Blossom Craft Collection. They kindly sent me a couple to play with and today I am using one of them for a new home card.

I started off by cutting the Decorative Tree die from white cardstock and then coloured it using Copic Markers. Aren't the little birds and birdhouse so cute? :) I took an A2 white card base and embossed a SSS Stitched Rectangle die on to it. I then cut the rectangle from another piece of cardstock and popped this on top with foam tape.
The tree was added with glue pen, slightly overlapping the popped up panel. The sentiment, from the Clearly Besotted Many Mini Messages set, was stamped with black ink, cut out and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a little clear WOS to the birds and birdhouse.
Here are the links to what I have used on the card. Please click the picture to be taken to where I purchased it. DISCLOSURE: The Apple Blossom die was kindly sent to me to use.

COPIC MARKERS: Tree branches - E23, E25. Leaves - YG23, YG17. Birds - R27, R59. Birdhouse - E74, E77.

The new Apple Blossom dies release today. They are such beautiful, intricate dies. Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you all have a lovely day and a great weekend!
