Hello, my friend

Hi!  I'm so excited about Quietfire's new metal dies that I have two cards to share with you today.  They both use the Hello die and they were both hard to photograph, especially the first one.

I used Staz-On Opaque White ink. to stamp my butterflies on the clear acetate.   I made a purple watercolor wash and then used the Hello die to cut out the watercolor paper.  I then used just a thin strip of 1/8" Scortape to adhere my background paper to the back layer of the card.  That way you could still lift up the back to write your note if you didn't want to write across the floral paper.

So much glare but it looks quite neat and dainty in real life.

On my second card I made a shaker card though it started out just as a negative die cut.  But after adding the acetate to adhere the little inside pieces, I went ahead and added some beads and sequins.

I also stamped "My friend" below the die opening and added some sequins to the front.

I LOVE your cards, Diana, how beautiful! What a great idea making a shaker card out of the negative cut, as well. Brilliant! :)

I have tried and tried to make shaker cards and the "sequins, etc." always stick to the residue on the edges whether I use a liquid or a tape runner. Any suggestions? Does the scotch foam tape work better?

It's Suzanne here and I'm going to answer for a bunch of the Design Team! Robyn says she likes it when some things stick to the sides (especially the top) so it's spread out. She also says she just used a clear bag for her last shaker card. I thought that was a great idea! (They're the bags the Quietfire stamps and dies come in) Otherwise check out Jennifer McGuire's website for shaker card ideas! Good luck!
