Nellie Snellen Multi Frame Dies


This is a new die (for me) I discovered through my travels on the web called Nellie's Multi Frames and I found them here.  This company is based in the UK but they have a currency converter you can click.  I must also say that shipping was wonderful (it was actually cheaper than a lot of places in the US and it didn't seem to take any longer).  Go check out these dies and this site.  These dies work just like most thin dies (like Spellbinder's) and are really easy to use. 

For this card, I cut out the die and used the negative image as a mask to color in the white cardstock with Distress inks.  I used the new Tumbled Glass and Broken China inks to achieve this look.  The flower stamp is from Unity Stamps and the butterflies were created using punches from Creative Memories.  I took the negative portion of the punches and used them as a mask to create these images.  I used my Scor-Pal to score around the edges of the card and then I took my black marker and, using the same score line, went down to highlight the score marks.  Another quick and easy card.  Maybe I could coin the phrase "Q & E", like the CAS (Clean and Simple) phrase.  : )   What do you think?

This is gorgeous! I love seeing these new distress colors. I keep telling myself I don't need them, but then I see how pretty they are. I also love the idea of using the die as a stencil. I'm definitely checking out Nellie's Multi Frames - great die shape. Thanks for sharing your work - it's gorgeous.
