Playin with my melt pot

Well in January I bought a melt pot in a sale from a ex work shop and lots of other goodies with it ,It was a bargain only £10 well I braved it the other day and got it out ,and here its what I did  so one off my tick list

Off up to my daughters on the train tomorrow  as they couldn`t get anyone to look after the girl for the evening They have been Invited  to the House of commons for drinks and buffet so I`m staying the night as she has my car as her`s broke down at begining of the June
and I couldn`t let her take the girls on tube`s ,they have found out it beyond repairable and it only 06 plate and only done 73k ,so they have just found another car and don`t pick it up till Saturday afternoon  but I have to be back in Kent by 12.30pm on Sat for my friends Wedding so will have to wait to get my car back. I haven`t missed it .

Well this took for ages to make what could go wrong did ,the edges kept breaking when I got the first large shape out of the die I did it 3 times even with wax paper in the end I put it down to the card I was using ,
then the stamp Image didn`t stamp right 1st I thought I got the Image lined up but no so got  a blurred Image
so re stamped it further down the card, what I should of done was cut the other Image off but no so when I cut the shape out with the image then embossed it you guessed it I had a upside down Image of the bad one on my good Image so I binned it had had to start again .Once I got over this it seemed to fall into place but then I had to find a shape what fit my letters so I went to my page dies one fitted nicely so now i could construct so here is the card

Hi it did arrive yesterday afternoon and haven`t had chance to play with it  but will today ,Its just as good as the armour collection I ordered , but it`s its better an Invoice with £00.00 balance now that's cool .
Here is a pic of the collection so I will now have to due more colouring

Well we had an 80th Birthday to go to on Sunday my next door neighbour so the card I made was with one of my old dies  ,My hubby made her some candle sticks turning them out of  some Ash,  I made a bag to put the candles in my very first nearly broke out in a sweat but liked the finished result and everyone in the room comment on all of it how clever we are
so here is the card I haven`t got a pic of the candle holders though that's a shame

I got the new die from Oyster stamps it`s the cheapest I have seen it £16.50 I did pay £1 postage never thought could have them to send it to their Whitstable shop and it wouldn`t have cost a penny but I had it in 2 days they are a good company here is their web site

A little bit of playing

Well I did do another two of the bxs yesterday and they have gone over to the shop I went there today and 3 of my mothers cards have been sold so chuffed ,Kate asked me could I put Easter eggs in these type of bxs   I have said I will try so when I go shopping I will have to get some ,
The card I made with my sister`s stamp I thought I had taken a Photo but no  and it`s now at the shop,
So the next card was a little of playing around with the new dies ,

So here it is

8*8 cream card stock
Centural pearl card for die cuts ,Paper behind the die cuts was free with a mag
A4 embossing folder
my corners are from one die cut into 4, I did want to put the corners onto the square I had made but I didn`t look right so the ended up as corners on the card,
I would surgest that wax paper is used with these dies as can be a bit tricky getting the card out
