More fun with die-cuts!

I tried out another new Sizzix die -- this one's called Flourish and Leaf. It cuts -- get this -- a flourish and a leaf! The two shapes work well together or separately. I did both on these cards.


A little more Halloween goodness. Here, some more Matilda from Cosmo Cricket -- the dp and cutie chip stickers. Like the spider cards in my post from a few days ago, I used more awesome glitter paper for the die cuts on today's cards. It's made by Best Creations, and it's amazing! It's thick, sparkly, and the glitter is magical -- it will. not. come. off. At all! Not even if you want it to. Worth every penny.

Next holiday:

This time, I focused more on the leaf. This would work for either Thanksgiving or just a lovely autumnal thank-you card. The dp this time is Jillibean Soup -- it was white with red script, but I gave it a good dose of Glimmer Mist. Now it's orange. I love orange! The stamp is from  We R Memory Keepers Maple Grove collection -- one of those tiny 99-cent sets that come in so handy. At the bottom, some lovely May Arts silk ribbon.

Holiday 3:

This may be the closest to shabby chic I've ever come, no? (Not that I'm saying it's all that close!) Lotsa layered bits -- the die cuts, papers (Basic Grey Jovial), border (KI Memories), crocheted lace, twine, and a nice chip button from Jenni B. The green dp is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder from this set (which I picked up at Scrappy Chic awhile ago and then kinda forgot -- hard to remember Christmas in July!). I threw a few olive pearls in the corner just for kicks.

So, three holidays -- one die. Cool beans.

I'm off to craft some more. Any big plans for your weekends?

Ooooh, I love all three cards, Ang! You have been quite the busy bee lately!

So tell me more about this glitter're saying it NEVER comes off? Ever? And it looks absolutely stunning on every card you've used it for? Hmmmm....intriguing.

Love the orange glimmer mist on the second card your placement of the leaves and swirl are perfect!

And your "shabby chic" card has so much fun stacked on it! That plaid embossing folder looks awesome, and those pearls are the perfect touch!

LOL, even before I saw Meg's comment I KNEW she was going to ask you about the magical glitter paper! :D I must admit I'm rather intrigued myself!! I LOVE those dies and all of your cards are gorgeous. My favourite has to be the Thanksgiving one. Did you know that Canadian Thanksgiving is October 11th? :P
