Make your thin dies go the extra distance.

When you have  thin dies one option you have is cutting it up in half with a cutter. Decide which way you want to cut it up -Vertical or horizontal and have a snip.
Now you  can use the dies in so many different ways. As it was originally intended , or as edge die or as a window die .
If you are like me you can get 2 sets and cut up one set and keep the other pristine.
I would cut up maybe just a couple of bigger dies if it was a nesting die and keep the inner ones intact if using just 1 set.

Ebosser with 2 A plates. Yes it can be done.

I wanted to try this for a long time and at last I did. For those having ebosser (not cut n boss) who want to use 2 of those see through A plates. Yes you can! Get an additional C plate. C plates are available at craftwell site. (Always better to have an extra c and d plate as u never know when they will not be available anymore.) Keep the D and B aside. The sandwich for thin dies becomes - two C plates 's, and A plate , magnetic shim, die, cardstock and another A plate . You can cut without the magnetic shim too. And hooray since you are using the 2 A plates you can use the double cut dies from crafters companion too. 
And here is the cut from crafters companion double cut dies - rose

Wanna Dance with Somebody...

That song kept ringing in my ears while I saw the image for Sasayaki FB Challenge last fortnight

The Bendi card is made using Tonic Window dies. Image colored with prismacolor pencils and copics. The embossing folder is Tattered Lace. I wrote in the sentiment instead of printing. Sometimes you need to have your won handwriting on stuff even if it's not all that good. As we get older and with all the technology nowadays I look at the pen or pencil in my hands and almost forget how to use it to write. That's bad.

Here's the card. Image colored with copics and prisma colored pencil.

Antique Lace - DS4J

Recently I got some tattered lace dies and this collection - the ornamental antique lace I should say is one of my favorites along with the tuck in dies to match.
And When I saw the digistamp4joy challenge this month both on the Fb Challenge page and their challenge Blogspot I thought this would be the perfect die to use.

Image : Dress up Dummy (which can be got from this link here after reading and following the rules)
Colored with copics and the background is with distress ink and prismacolor pencils
Dies used : Tattered lace ornamental antique rectangles , ornamental tuck in dies and flower medley
Sentiment : Printed in computer.

Spring Card

Here's another card and this time for Scrapper's delight. I was able to walk up the stairs  to my craft room to create and sat and did 3 cards at a stretch and this is the 3rd one scheduled one a day :)
The image is a cute egg in a basket so I decided to make an Spring/Easter Card.
The die cut is frame die from Amy Designs. The embossing folder is cherry folder from either Darice or Sue Wilson. Not sure.
Image is colored using copics.
