New DT position

hi all,
i'm so excited today to be able to tell you all that i am now a design team member for oysterstamps.
i've been a huge oysterstamps fan for ages now and always look on their site for my new goodies and i've been lucky enough to visit the shop a few times.
i was even there today.
the girls were friendly as they always are and we oo-d and ahhh-d over the new dies they were putting out.
there are so many new dies ansd stamps, the shop is full to bursting point so i was in my eliment.
the shop now sells the La La Land dies and must say these are possibly the best dies i have ever used. they are really pretty and come out of the dies so easily.
i was suprised at how easy they are to use.
here is one of the cards i made
I didn't have a bauble die so i used my La La Land Hot air Balloon die and turned it upside down.
i think its worked perfectly.
i used snowflake embossing folder from cuttlebug and a lovely sentiment stamp from Hot of the Press.
it was in a set called Christmas Words.
i used gold embossing powder on the sentiment
this was such a quick and simple card to make but i have had some lovely comments on it.
I also made this card
i don't usually make gatefold cards but it worked for this design.
i used a sizzix embossing folder called Loving Thoughts for the frame.
i cut round it to make a frame
i used three different la la land dies on this one
rolled rose,
large flourish
creepy vines.
i'm not keen on my colour combo for this one, what was i thinking!
I make it in pink and white tomorrow.
thank you for stopping by and i really hope you will come back.
hugs for now
suzanne (the happy bunny)
