January Die Cuts for Stamping Sensations

My First Card uses Sizzix rounded tag die to make the arch and Spellbinders Grateful lattice down the side, the flowers are memorybox Honeyblossom sprig, the stamps in the arch are Oxford Impressions and the other stamps on the background are Close To My Heart.

My second card uses memory box tree, bicycle and little birds in the trees. Wording stamp is Woodware (I do like this quote !) and the birds in the sky are Inkylicious. I added a bit of Frantage embossing at the bottom, its supposed to be Taupe but I can't see anything but gold in it, it was very fine and dusty compared to the other Frantage EPs  I have used so maybe its a rogue batch!
Memo to self : must use my dies more !
I seem to buy them, use them a couple of times and then they get put away and forgotten.
Hope you will join us at Stamping Sensations this month
