Pinpoint Rings.
by Pam Simpson

Hello Everyone! Pam here today.

IMG_2531-crop

Wonder how many of you know how to get perfect circles! when using separate circle dies,  lots of you will, so I`m doing this mainly for the new crafters who pop by our blog.

IMG_2518-crop

For my Pinpoint Rings circle (No Cutting Edge)  I have used the second largest plain circle from  the "Double Stitched Circle Frames).

IMG_2519-crop

I have used a piece of my  "Magnetic  sheet" ..this holds the dies in place  so I can get the perfect gaps! place cutting edge down then tape together.

IMG_2522-crop

Perfect fit on the plain circle I had cut. Run through your die cutting machine.

IMG_2524-crop

This is how it looks after I ran it through the machine, I was underside weather to use the outer  stitched frame! but decided not to.

IMG_2525-crop

White square card 5.1/4" x 5.1/4"  ..of set the taped Pinpoint Rings as shown, ran through my die cutting machine. edge with green ink pad or pen.

IMG_2526-crop

I have adhered this to  a card blank 5.1/2" square, again shaded with green ink. Main card 6"x 6" tent fold (Top opener) sentiment stamped in my Misti.

IMG_2528-crop

Showing my separate Pinpoint Rings, I have used green glitter around the outer edge. Glue pen and glitter.

IMG_2533-crop

Showing a close up of the finished topper, Tidings of Joy stamp and matching die.. "Mistletoe & Holly stamp and matching dies, When I first stamped and die cut these! I tried colouring them, looked to heavy for this card!, so just used a glue pen and green glitter to most. random dots green liquid pearls.

IMG_2529-crop

Hope you will have a go at this easy Christmas card, also hope you understand what I did.

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.

Blooming Rose Aperture Card.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone..Pam here today.

IMG_2115-crop

I have created a Aperture using Poppystamps square frame dies..Double Stitched & Pointed Square Frames.

IMG_2110-crop
 I have used an off cut of waste card for this example: 7"x 7"  marked either end and top 1.1/2"  in with pencil, made a mark along side the die, I wanted to see if i like the postion and size of my opening for the aperture.

IMG_2111-crop

This is the cut out of my waste card, using Double stitched die.

IMG_2112-crop

This is my card front Cream with a Pink insert. Look at the top picture and you see how I got my cutout using Double Stitch Square, I cut another one in Pink! as the Pointed squares are a touch different in size.

IMG_2113-crop

Using the outer cream card front as a guide, placed a smaller size pointed square and cut in my die cutting machine.

 

IMG_2114-crop

Example above after using both sets of square dies.. The Double stitched square fits on top of the pink square! inside the cream..my largest Pointed frame sit around the outer cream square. hope your still with me on this lol.

Before I adhered these together to place on my card front ..I reduced the size 6.1/2" square ..as I like this better.

IMG_2118-crop

Finished card with the pretty open work of  poppystamp dies "Blooming Rose" did you notice I also cut a pretty heart trail along the bottom.."Gentle Hearts"  Poppystamps border die.

IMG_2116-crop

   IMG_2121-crop

Sentiment by Poppystamps..  Sending Scribbles ..finished with random placed pearls and ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.
