A very quick sample for you tonight, I just wanted to show you how beautiful these vintage images are when stamped very, very simply. This greatly appeals to me as one who never seems to have enough time to do anything!!!
The tag images of flowers are from the small set Vintage Garden - Flowers and the little seed envelope images are from the Vintage Garden - Produce set, both due to release on Friday.
I will be back in the morning with my DT link list and then again in the afternoon with some very special samples, hope you can pop back.
I am whizzing about like a top in the background, prepping the store, getting the cut files together - wow, that Cameo is some machine, but I still love my dies. Something about the tactile nature of producing those beautifully embossed edges just tickles my creative spirit - the girls were beginning to show you the die shapes and the co-ordinating stamps today and I look forward to sharing my samples of those with you, but release week always seems to expand exponentially and I have a few behind the scenes things to do before I get to that.
I'd love to take a little straw poll tho - how many of you ladies or gentlemen out there have a use for our cutting files? With the launch of our first die set and my Cameo purchase I am looking at the different nature of each method of cutting. I'm finding that there are things I want to use the Cameo for and other things for which only my big Rasperry buddy, the Grand Calibur can do for me.
I will be designing both dies and cutting files henceforth, and my plan is to play to the strengths of each system. For example I don't think that the beautifully embossed edge on a decorative tag cut with a Spellbinders die template can be matched by the plain cutting function on my Cameo, I love texture and that is simply not achievable on a cameo...or is it (? lol, I have a wee tut for you tomorrow that could turn your Grand Calibur into your Cameo's best buddy!!) but the Cameo is handy for making little cut out shapes to match oddly shaped stamps that I may not want to buy a die for - so what do you think?
For folks who take the time to give us their opinion here in a comment on this post I'll be making a random draw for a set of my new dies! The draw winner will be announced just before the release. Looking forward to hearing from you!
