Here's a stamp from a brand new artist at Sweet Pea stamps. Well, she is brand new to Sweet Pea stamps, but for those of you who come to my blog regularly I am sure you recognize this artist, it's Sandra Caldwell!! After Squigglefly shut down in Feb. Sweet Pea signed her to carry her adorable images, so drop by over there to check out her newest designs. This cutie is called Old maid bee so I colored her up with blue hair! I am using wonderful papers from Paper Temptress today to complete this card.
The base of this card is using gorgeous color cardstock called Tuscan Sun Brawny. The image is printed out on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest and die cut using Lifestyles. The yellow cardstock is from Pop Tones Lemondrop. I cut out the banners using die cuts from CC Designs.
Here's a close up of the Sweet Pea stamp colored using Copic Markers. Too cute, eh?
So, which die cut machines do you all have? I am a little shy to admit how many I do have, lol, I originally got a Sidekick, way back when they were brand new. Then used it enough to break it and buy a new one. I had a dear friend give me an original red sizzix many many years later. I bought myself a cuttlebug, which is probably the machine I use most often (and I have replaced it already once). I also have a BigKick? I can use the larger sizzix dies but the not the super large ones. I like this machine because its just easier to turn the handle and run things through it than the orginal size. So for embossing, I tend to always use the Sizzix and cutting I always use the Cuttlebug. (Oh and I also have the Making Memories Slice--from when it was brand new as well as a Cricut)
How about you guys?
which machines do you have? which dies do you like?
I just saw something the other day I have never seen, I don't know, perhaps there is no seller in the USA for them they were Trimcraft First Edition Dies. Anyone tried these?
