Hi lovely bloggers - some exciting news (for a change)! - 

A few weeks ago, Practical Publishing contacted me about joining the DT of their brand new crafting website called "Craft Stash".  
Various top crafting brands can be bought here, alongside  their new "Apple Blossom Craft Collection" excellent quality dies, with more to come in the near future.
The site is now launched and I'm very happy to be part of the fabulous Design Team.

For my first cards, I used the fabulous "Ornate Heart and Frame" die which is perfect for so many occasions. This set comprises 4 heart-shaped dies. 
The ornate outer die measures approx. 6" x 5 1/2". 

Version #1 - (layering 3 of the dies)

Version #2 -
I used two of the dies,  with silver cardstock for the ornate outer die, and as you probably know, metallics do not photograph very well !! It looks much better IRL though! 
(The silver-embossed sentiment stamp is an old one from my stash)

Launch of brand new dies -

Have a fabulous weekend -
