New die from Technique Tuesday!

I think this new die "Pull Strip" from Technique Tuesday is so different and opens many new possibilities!! I did a card that hide the message, the receiver has to pull the strip to read it! :) 
After that it´s a kind of gate-card

Used my favorite stamps from "Wild Flowers"

I took a photo of the inside before I put it together! Used stamps from "Hello Sunshine"

Idag är det min bloggdag på Pyssloteket! För att se detaljer omkring vad jag använt kan du titta in på Pysslotekets blogg!
Det är ju sommar och vackert väder så det blir enkelt idag.

Idag visar jag två kort med samma die från Memory Box, Hollyhock Stem

På det första har jag dubblerat blommorna och placerat blomkvistarna på bitar av papper som jag skapat med Distress Inks och en stencil.

Det andra kortet är mycket enkelt, jag använde ”negativet” av den utstansade delen för att skapa en skugga. Placerade sedan den utstansade delen en bit ifrån och fäste den med brads!
Texten från Technique Tuesday, Simply You

Ha en skön söndag!
