Memory Box Dies

Hi Folks, Hope all is good with you? Welcome here and to the weekend, YAY I love the weekends!




At the Craft Barn Blog this week the team have made some lovely samples with the with Memory Box dies.  Oh yes they are beautiful dies, I have used these dies rather a lot since I bought them and I 've made two cards to share today I hope you like them

My first card is using the die as a mask and inking over it. I masked the whole area to be inked first and then finaly added a huge pearl:0)









This next card I used the cut outs to finish the design

This is what I used

I embellished my journal cover with the same dies just different coloured embossed velvet paper and a very small die cut in metal.

This is the back of the journal


Thanks for dropping in, hugs Gay x
