Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 50 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Layering Dies - Memory Box Glowing Candles die

Time again for a another mid month post over at Bizzy Bec's blog. Last one of the year, wow where did it go?
Ages ago now I bought this die - Memory Box Glowing Candles (available
Bec has it at a really great price over here!). I had made a card with it, but saw a totally different one (seen first in different colours over here, on Loll's blog). And in same colours as mine- here, this one has a video if you want to watch it!
I had these three cut on last week of October on my desk. I layered double sided tape on the back of card first.

Then you remove the tape layers with pricking tool, remove the pieces you want in other colours on the top gold layer first.
Added red to candles centres and centre of the flame which is also red.
 Removed the gold leaves, adding the green on top.
Cut the top two colours of red and gold stems off the edges.
Under the layers, adhere the green so it shows green stems.
"Joy to the world, the LORD has come!" is from Our Daily Bread "Joy to the world" stamp set (ODB stamps are available from Bizzy Bec's upon request). Gold embossed, and added die cut centre from SB die, inked lightly around edge in gold.
Spellbinder die, I bought from Bec, it's cut in gold, and is a 5 x 7 Heirloom Legacy a gorgeous die and great size.
Yes, I am batch baking my cards so here are the three I've made of these, I actually really enjoy them, may even try them in another colourway if time permits.
Thanks so much for popping over for a peek and chat,I would really love it if you have time and could comment on the blog post here on Bizzy Bec's blog, thanks so much to those who've kindly done this before! 
May God bless your day wherever you may be!

Beautiful - have commented on these on another post but had to come and see them again and could only think of the word "Beautiful" to describe them. Stunning maybe, now other words are coming but I think I will stick with Beautiful.
Hugs, Neet xx
