You're Special To Me

 Hi crafters!  I have been playing with the new Tina Triple Layering die.  I started by cutting the top die into a piece of coconut white card.  I used it four times around the edge of a square and over cut it in each of the corners (to make the card size a bit smaller).  I cut another piece of white card with a sticky adhesive sheet attached and attached it to it.  Next I cut the Tina die four times out of teal card and four times out of black card and kept all of the fall away pieces each time.  I paper pieced all the pieces back into the die frame.  I used white squares to cover the over cut corner areas.  Next I cut the Melissa die out of white for the top layer, teal for the middle layer and black for the bottom layers.  I stamped my sentiment, then cut a circle frame for it using the Double Stitched Circles.  I mounted it in the centre of the card.  I completed the card with white, teal and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. I noticed this was uploaded on a website last night but can't remember which it was but I thought then how lovely it was. It reminds me of mosaic tiles, it's a really clean fresh looking sample, a really pretty start to another crafty week. Hope your Monday is a nice Monday xxx

Hi Sue. What a really stunning card. It reminds me a bit of ceramic tiles. What patience you must have to do all the paper piecing but it is all worth it in the end.

Lovely; reminds me of a Morroccan tile, perhaps
it's the turquoise colour that does it,

Very stylish - a lovely mosaic feel to it, and elegantly understated. Sometimes you need a card that's not too ornate, and this would be perfect.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

What a fabulous combination of colors and dies. The results are mesmerizing and the paper piecing of the Tina die creates the perfect border around the card. I wasn't really sure what to think about this collection at first but I find that I really like it after using it several times.

Have a great day. Can't wait to see your upcoming shows for more ideas.

Beverly
