Moving Along With The Times...Dies or Punches...


It's my first MAWTT of 2015, so I get to wish you Happy New Year!

This week it is the lovely Hazel hosting and her theme is 'Dies or Punches'

Perfect for me, as I have lots of both!

I went with Dies AND Punches - dies for the square and the heart, punch for the sentiment label.

I decided to make a shaker card, as I had recently viewed the best tutorial ever here - you have to try it out, super simple and I managed to make a shaker without making a mistake :)

I used all American Crafts papers - scraps..(my quest to use them all continues into 2015..), the sequins, beads and glitter are just from my stash. I punched out a sentiment I printed, using a Stampin' Up mini label punch. I also used square and heart dies by Sizzix.

For a finishing touch I added enamel dots - a new purchase from Michaels...

Pretty pleased with this vision in pink! Only change, is next time I will use a contrasting colour for the heart background..

Now it's your turn to join in the fun, hop on over to MAWTT and check out Team B's fabulous creations.
