Card for Papertake Weekly

This is one of the little cuties I won in Lisette's candy!  Thanks again Lisette!!!

I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly and my favorite Martha Stewart punch! 

And I have some exciting news...I finally purchased a die cutting machine!  Go me, go me!  Lol!  It should be here in two weeks...I've already purchased dies for it.  Hello new addiction! What I need from you is suggestions for dies I really really "need."  This could be dangerous!

Have a wonderful week.  It's going to cool off and the girls and I plan to visit the ZOO tomorrow!

Rene :D

Hi Rene, oh the joy of a new cutting/embossing machine!!! There are just so many dies and folders out there it is so hard to pick. My collection is made up mostly of Spellbinders Nestabilities and every now and then I see something made by someone else and "need" it. We don't get the variety here that you would find overseas, but gradually more brands are making it into the craft shops. LOL, I just bought a little picket fence gate yesterday.
Have fun playing with your new toy!!!
Love your gorgeous card too. Great punched border and cute image.

Gorgeous card! Love your border and the pearls. I have quite a few well maybe a lot of Memory Box Dies. Plus some others. The MB are pretty inexpensive so you can quite a variety. I guess it the look and what will be your primary use that will be your determining factor. But have fun purchasing!

Beautiful card. I love how you framed your image with pearls. Beautiful coloring and just a fabulous card in every way. I love Memory Box dies, Cherry Lynn dies, Spellbinder dies are great too.

Lovely card, very sweet.

As for the dies, I just bought my machine some weeks ago so I'm reading along :D.
I was thinking on Nestabilities shapes (oval, round, square etc) with a lovely border. And leaves and flowers, butterflies. And.. and.. and.. lol. There is so much out there. I love the Memory box dies. I just look around at other peoples cards.

Gorgeous card Rene :-) I love the image and the colours and details are fab :-)
The dies I use the most are the circle and scalloped circle spellbinders so I would recommend those as a 1st buy. the doohickey hesrt swirl would be the next most used,,, :-)
