a late sample

Well I was up late last night, and meant to blog this one this morning before the shows on QVC, but I was too tired and went back to bed!! Sorry!
This is the last one I have done, using those fabulous Toppers by My Craft Studio that sold out so quickly. I don't have to worry though as I ordered mine, lol, and a couple of other bits to play with!
This is using one of the large rectangle foiled/mirri'd toppers.
This kit has thoroughly stumped me! I love them, and I think all the other colours are as stunning as the Red, which I got, if not better!
This is an 8x8" card blank made from 300gsm A3 dark green card. The matt is using the Cheery Lynn Royal coved Rectangles Mega doily die, which I cut on my Happy Cut and no shims. As far as I know the Happy Cut is the Only machine able to do this without breaking. This is on a 350gsm Hammered White Card stock.
I cut a circle from the base card which comes with the kit, as I know now, and split it in half, separating the halves so that I could wrap the Sublime Metallic Twine round the gap, using the die cut as a means of keeping it straight. Next up the topper was placed over the top, using DST.
Now I needed to pull the green from the card base back into the design, so I used the last 3 of those scrummy Silver Rose hips (yes I ordered those as well lol) in my kit, and added a green leaf, as the silver reflects the silver in the die cut. Last but not least, 3 large clear gems in the remaining corners, and Job's a gud 'un!
If you didnt get chance to order them, or thought they were'nt for you, if you know someone who has got them, go and have a peep, they are so much better than any photo or camera work can show.
I have gone off kits recently, preferring to create my own designs, but I can honestly say that these toppers are so very unique, that I had to get them. The quality is superb, better than anything I have ever seen, and up until January I was a Hunky Dory Fanatic, and Kanban kit  fanatic, so that is saying something! The designs are lovely. I didnt buy much from QVC due to the postage rates, but I bought what I would have kicked my self for missing out on, these toppers, the flowers and the moulds.
Hopefully I have given you inspiration over the past few days in how to use these bits I was given, and if you did get them, I would love to be able to pop along and gain inspiration from you in return.

Hugs to all
