Today I did something a little different :)
I made a video to go with the card I had made.
Here I have used the Bloomin Hearts Thinlits from the 2016 Occasions catalogue to create this card.
I started by sponging over a piece of Whisper White big enough to cover the Thinlit with Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and a touch of Rose Red.
Run through Bigshot using a sandwich of: Magnetic Platform, Precision Plate, Sponged C/S, Die (sharp edge down) then top acrylic plate.
This Bloomin Hearts Thinlit is fairly intricate so you will have to be careful when trying to release from die - BUT when you watch the video you will get to see a brand new handy little tool that will be available in the 2016 Occasions Catty!
I find these intricate die really flimsy and sometimes tear especially when using DSP.
Here I have a solution to add a bit of "toughness " to it while still leaving it really pretty and durable.
Once cut out, cover piece in versamark then dust with Clear Embossing powder and heat set - do this step twice to achieve more strength in the die cut.
Now as I said you have to be gently on me as it's my second video. I am truly Australian so I do sometimes speak fast and use the Ozzie slang - Gunna (going to) there is no airs and graces with us here in the bush.
