Oooooh Papertrey Ink Stamps and Dies...

Morning bloggers..

Well I was a very lucky lady at Christmastime, and one of my gifts was some fabulous Papertrey Ink stamps and dies from a very lovely person ... so I've been practising and practising - and here's what I came up with!!  What do you think?

They do take some getting used to..  positioning the die over the stamped image is a bit tricky.. but they are soooooo effective when it's done.  I just used a bit of pink dotty (yes it had to be pink!) from my stash... a pc generated sentiment... a woodware corner rounder..  and of course the stamps and dies..  which are Rosie Posie from Papertrey Ink.  Oooh and a little touch of glitter finished the roses off...

Now I just wanted to share these pics of my youngest daughter - who was in Las Vegas over Christmas...  They are entitled 'How to Give My Mother Nightmares/a Heart Attack'...  (and look away if you're squeamish...)

On the last one - she's actually standing on the very edge of the Grand Canyon!!!!  Seems they don't have health and safety over there............  And as I hate heights, my toes curled when I looked at it!!   She had a fabulous time as her birthday is on Christmas Eve also... and she was with a group of friends so celebrated in style..

Big hugs to all and Happy Crafting..

  1. Lovely card, and I love the shaped corners. The pics did make me feel a bit woozy too. Hope she had a great birthday while she was there.

  2. What a beautiful girl, Christine! Obviously takes after her mum.

    What a very elegant card - the touch of glitter really finishes it off beautifully!

  3. Wonderful card gorgeous photos Ginny x

  4. Such a beautiful card - love it and all the sparkles too. We went to Vegas last year, and yes, you can stand right on the very edge - it's a long long way down. It is certainly a once in a lifetime experience - especially the helicopter trip over the canyon.

  5. Ooh, Christine, I love this card! Gorgeous stamps and soooo effective!

    I could hardly look at the second photo! Scary!

  6. Love the card hun - but wow the Grand place before I pop my clogs I need to oh wow - though do not think I could stand on the edge!!!

  7. I think you have done wonders with the die and stamp, I have all on getting an ordinary shaped die rightly positioned over an image, they look great and of course the sparkle too.
    Great photo's,glad she had a great time.
    Thanks for the tip about Chrome.
