Beehive and Roses

Har du sett min flotte blogcandy? Digi Doodle BlogCandy :)

Jeg valgte vintage farger til dette nydelige motivet fra Lemon Shortbread, vår sponsor hos Creative Fingers #97. Fantastiske stempelmotiv inspirert av japansk anime! ♥  Som alltid er det 'Anything Goes', som betyr 'Lag-hva-du-vil' på vår utfordringsblogg, og du er hjertelig velkommen til å delta :)

My card today is feauturing the lovely 'Beehive and roses' from our sponsor Lemon Shortbread in challenge #97. over at Creative Fingers! They make the most gorgeous anime inspired digistamps ♥ I chose vintage colors and a simple layout to really make her the centerpiece. The only embellishment she needed was a nice frame, and a bit of shine from my Glossy and Twinks!
The Theme is as always 'Anything Goes', create whatever you wish, and you are most welcome to join in! :)

This has to be my absolute fave combo of my dies! Seriously, if you are new to crafting and considering buying dies for your big shot, cuttlebug or other diecut maschine ~ theese three die sets mix and match perfectly together, endless variations and uses for frames and mats, even sending your cardbase through one of the large dies gives you a great shaped card! See all my cards using theese awesome dies here! :)
However, the Grand die set for Labels One is actually made for the bigger die cutting maschines, so you cannot fit the two biggest dies in this set inside the regular Big shot or Cuttlebug (only the really BIG maschines that goes above 6 inches does that) but the remaining dies are just SO worth getting that die set that I reccommend it none the less! 
I Scrap Happy show you just how the grand dies fit in your regular diecut maschine in her video on youtube here. If u watch this, be aware that now there is an extended platform that makes some of the long dies she shows cut just fine! ...I'm so gonna buy the grand labels four next :) 
If you you are brand new to crafting with diecuts, and unsure about what a diecut maschine does, like a Cuttlebug, Big Shot or the Big Shot Plus and others too, do a search for them on youtube! Best source for tutorials! 
Also, Scrapmadesimple has a great youtube vid here ~ and here ~ and you get a laugh as well ;)
