Online Card Classes - dies!

So I've signed up with Online Card Classes to take their new 'Stretch Your Dies' class - if you have never taken any of these classes, do think about it. You can join any time,  get loads of videos, ideas that I wouldn't think of in a million years, and once the class is over, you can keep revisiting the classes for life whenever you need a bit of inspiration. That, plus some of my favourite crafters - Jennifer McGuire, Kristina Werner, Debby Hughes, Shari Carroll........bliss!

So as I have a lot of dies, I thought I really could do with some new ideas on how to use them. So here is my 'homework' for today. Who would have thought you could die cut fun foam? All the elements on this card. including the sentiment, were cut with white fun foam and coloured with ProMarkers.......what a great idea to make lightweight cards! The dies I used are Sissix leaves, and Heartfelt Creations flower dies. All the foam, including the sentiment got a coat of clear Wink of Stella glitter. I handwrote the word 'soon' with a white signo pen





So you will be seeing a lot of die-cutting on my cards this week - I have so many Memory Box and Sissix dies, I am looking forward to some new ideas...

  1. Beautiful card, Enfys. I haven't tried cutting fun foam yet, but I can see that it's got to go on my "try this" list.

  3. Great card Enfys.
    You can also use your dies & fun foam to make your own stamps - great for co-ordinating with the die-cuts.

  4. Your flower card looks just fabulous, Enfys. Thanks for a peek into this class. This is probably the first class in two years that I am not taking. There's still so many things to explore from previous classes and I am revisiting lessons from the Copics class to get better acquainted with my Letraset markers.
