Helping hand...........

Recently I popped over to Scrapbook Stamp Society, and treated myself to some new digi's , yum yum!
I bought a large Digi, called Fairy Dust collection by Morgan Fitz-simons, and used 1 part of the digi, to create this card for you to look at.




A5 piece of card, scored to form an A6 card base.
Mbossibilities folder by Spellbinders
3 Cool Grey promarkers. 2,3,4
Tonic Flower Punch.
Lace
Black gems
E-craft,
Digi image by Morgan Fitz-simons.

The E-craft doesnt come with an optical eye, but it is possible to get it to cut around a shape that you have printed out, I need to play a bit more before I do a video on it, lol.
But I got the e-craft to cut around the hand for me! Woo-hoo!!
Target for the day achieved, okay its not perfect, but trying to figure out the correlation between where my printer prints, and where the E-craft cuts is difficult! And then the brain got itself all confused, and I couldn't think any more!

I carefully trimmed around the hand I wanted to use in My Craft Studio Elite, (Keep an eye on the end of this post!) and printed it out from the Digi by Morgan Fitzsimons. Then cut it out with the E-craft.
Coloured it with the Promarkers, and added the black gems, Lace and Flower.
Then I used the e-craft to draw and cut the tag sentiment. The E-craft does this differently to the Silhouette, as the Pen and Blade are in the trolley part of the machine together, so you dont have to swap one out to use the other.
I embossed the base card with the folder, then assembled it.


Right for those of you who have paid attention: I am giving away 3 CD's and a reference sheet. I received them in the Goody Bag at the Doncaster Workshop, as I already have them.
Now I am NOT giving you my copy! As I wouldn't part with it! But I am giving away the spare set.



The Quintessential Country Garden Double CD set is heaving with Fabulous Floral Images, I have used it for some Custom cards, which I dont photo, once you have one of my cards made for you, that's it, I never replicate them, wether I am proud of them or not, they never get made again.
But back to the disk's, one of my Favourite collections by MCS, some vintage themes, pretty themes, men's theme's, you name it it's all here, fab butterflies, and birds, and obviously Flowers. As the new program Elite was released in April, and this tied in with the move to QVC UK, for new users they sent it out with the quick reference sheet, and a video on how to use it, so you have the complete package, and are able to play with the program in the same way I do.

So to enter just leave a comment at the end of this post saying you would like the disks, this will run for 2 weeks, then I will get Youngest to draw a name out the hat, and sent out. (mainly coz I have no idea how that Random Org thingy works, oops!)

hugs to all

Lou, you are so funny. I love reading your posts. What a great idea to use part of the digi with that wonderful sentiment. Striking results on this card. I would love to get to use this prize; learning more from disks every day.
