Gemini Mini - Shell's Craft Corner

This is a great little die cutting machine to have . Just a little die to do this is the answer. Like I said in the video I got mine during Crafters Companions Birthday week.

Hence the Gemini Mini the extra folders and shim and a cute bag to keep it all in.
The Thank you Die was a free gift for spending a certain amount that day.

Merry Christmas Happy New Year

Oh these new Lisa Horton die are great I have taken a Black slimline card and then a  and matted this on my card. I then die cut four scalloped squares and then I stamped and coloured my Snowman and Mousse and stamped my greeting. I then took the hexagon shaped stitched die and die cut them and placed foam pads onto the back to raise them from the card. I really like how this card turned out.

This next card was created after seeing my waste piece from the above card. Here is the card and I will explain how the card came to be.

I had this piece of white card left over from the above card and thought I wonder if I die cut another hexagon out I could then use it as a raised outline.

So I cut the 4th hexagon took another piece of white card and placed it underneath and got some stamps my Reindeer, Snowman, Penguin and Elf that would fit into the hexagon.

Out came the Tri Blend pens to colour them and I stamped Two Merry and a Christmas cut them down to fit in the middle pieces.

I then placed foam strips all around the edge and the middle and placed it over my images and then onto a 6 x 6 card.

So don't just throw the scraps away you maybe able to make a card like I have here.

Happy Halloween

 I just love this set and it will be with me for years to come. 

I took a base A6 card and matted it with a piece of patterned paper. Then I took a piece of white card and stamped my three images . I then punched them out and added some colour but colouring a few parts on each image  I have placed them onto foam pads to raise them from the card.

Lastly I  stamped my Happy Halloween and cut the ends to make it look like a banner and raised this with foam pads too.

Happy Birthday Card


I love these Banner Alphabet dies there just so cute and different.

I have taken an A6 card in a dark purple colour then matted it with a smaller lilac gingham patterned paper then taken a lighter purple card and a very light purple card and used my John next door circle layering dies and die cut all three pieces and then cut it in half making a half moon shape.

I then used rainbow card and black card to die cut my banners and banner letters and then I have raised then using foam pads.

I then to my oxide inks and rubbed them over my butterfly this card is so pretty for real.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Card

So here we have a cute slim line card. I used Black as my base card then some lovely rainbow card as a mat. and the white frame and blue square are left overs from another card I made a couple of weeks ago.

The stamps are the free ones of a magazine also from the last slim line card I made.

I just stamped on the blue pieces and stuck them onto the white stitched frame and them put it altogether.
