Batch Making

Hello and Welcome

Last week I spent an afternoon using my Misti to batch make a set of cards using some new stash.

I bought the Spellbinders stepper die at a table top sale a few weeks ago and this was it's first time out.

The bird and branch were in a freebie set of stamps and dies with a recent magazine and the single flower was lying on my table, stamped and diecut from an older freebie set.

I recently went to Loobi Crafts for a workshop using Craftwork cards materials and the paper is scraps which were leftover from the class.  I still have lots of the diecut sentiments, candi and full sheets of the pretty papers to play with.

I stamped then diecut six birds and wings from scraps of white card.

Next I put one of the scraps into my Misti and put the diecuts into the holes in the scraps.

I placed the stamps in the right position to stamp the wings, heads and bodies of the birds then stamped in my chosen colours.  I removed the wings as they were finished and switched the birds over so that I could stamp the reverse parts.

I made three of the cards using various pieces of this set of papers and the other three birds I have put aside to use later.

I am taking my card over to join in  at Pixies Snippets Playground Weeks 293 & 294
