Metallizing rosettes, and a little woyww

Firstly, I have to apologise, and say a BIG thank you to everyone who has commented on my blog this week. I am VERY busy working my way up to Ally Pally...pressing  stamps... ordering new *stuff* yummy!, and generally trying to get it all finished!I have even been designing new stamps for release at Ally Pally, and I cannot wait to show you them :))) I did manage a few blogs last week, but haven't a hope today, so many apologies.
However if you fancy a quick peek into my world here it is... with added artwork!! lol I received some of the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Alteration dies and folders on Monday evening, and I absolutely need to try the rosette out. I had an idea, and it worked!!! The rosette is initially only supposed to work with paper, but me being me, needed to try it with something else.. grungepaper is a definite no no, but metal works!!!! ( I am sure that I will get slapped wrists for saying it works, and I take no responsibility for you wrecking your die) Be careful as you push it out of the metal when cut, use tape to glue it together. I ran the middle through a embossing folder and used the Cracked embossing folder for the Tattered Leaves. I am in love!! rofl...



I am afraid these are only on pre-order now on line, but I will have them at Ally Pally (September 25th & 26th).
Julia, thank you for WOYWW. I am afraid this week, I blatantly used it to show you my rosette... (hangs head in shame), and if you are new to my blog, and have never heard of this growing phenomenon, check it out! it is a peek into worlds unknown, neat, and messy! FAB!!
Have a creative day

inge said...

good morning Jennie !

It's an awesome tag ! I like it all : the simple background with the drips on the right, the embossing on the leaves( the white gives such a nice contrast to the purple( and the rosette !!!!

How do you think we will be able to resist this ? Even with the risk to ruin our die, we all will want to try it !!!
It's so special and looks so good.
Definitely a winner !!!

greetings from belgium
Inge

I thought all the Bigz dies cut through thick stuff? Not sure that this rosette would work with anything too thick, mind. It looks gorgeous the way you've done it tho! Helen S #147

Wow Jennie

thanks for showing that die... i've had my head in the sand again recently so wasn;t aware that this had been released... it looks like a must have so will be thinking long and hard about getting it or adding to my wishlist.
