FOSTV-Die Cuts


The challenge for Friends of Speedy TV this week is to use die cuts. I've had this basket from Marianne Design Craftables for quite a while and this is my chance to use it. I filled it with roses from a Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co. stamp set called Relax A Bit. It is the roses only from the teapot. I stamped the teapot, colored, and cut out the roses, placing them in the basket.

 I  used a Marianne Design Creatables Bird, Ivy Vine, Birdhouse die for the ivy. The green leaves are Spellbinders Shapeabilities Foliage dies. I did change the shape of those with my scissors because they weren't fitting just right. I got in a punch for my branches from Martha Stewart.

The pretty embossing folder was sent to me from Kathy, Entering Kathyville. Thanks so much, Kathy. I love it and it works perfectly for my basket of flowers.

Hope you'll join us this week at Friends of Speedy TV and possibly win the stamp set shown below, Wild Horses.
