Good morning crafty friends

I ordered this die set about a month or so ago and it arrived last week.  It's a nephew's birthday this week so a good time to use it 

The die set comes in 3 pieces, 2 clock pointers and then the remainder of the large die.  In the 'flesh' the card does look very much nicer than the photo depicts, but you know I have an ongoing battle with photographing mirri card lol

Back home again and decided to take one more photo of today's card, in a different light.... what do you think?

New photo!

Much better compared to the one below!

I used an A5 black card base with a smaller panel of silver mirri and finally a smaller panel of black card.  I die cut the cogs/clock face once only and secured it onto the two top panels with adhesive and a small brad that I used for the clock pointers.  These were then adhered to the card base and I used  several of the cog's centres as embellishments

I did think I had a small 'Happy Birthday' die but a quick look proved not to be.  A freebie magazine stamp was then used to emboss the sentiment

I'm seeing my rheumatology professor this morning and, hopefully, she will reinstate Methotrexate, I'll keep you informed

  • black cardstock and silver mirri - my stash
  • clock/cog die set - unbranded
  • sentiment - magazine freebie
  • brad Hobby House
  • embossing powder - WOW/Metallic Silver

  6. Brilliant June. I usually make Male cards with cogs on. I did make a 10x8 picture with a clock and cogs on and had it at a craft fair. It sold before the fair opened. Hope you are put back on the tablets. Stitches out tomorrow.

    1. Thank you Littlelamb

      WOW, wonderful it sold before the fair opened!

      Fingers crossed once the stitches are removed it will hurt less for you



  7. Oh my goodness, June! I love your steampunk creation BECAUSE of its elegant simplicity! It's a wonderful die set and so beautifully put together. Hoping the medication helps you! hugs, de
