Do you die cut or fussy cut?

 Hello friends, hope this week is treating you well and that you are finding time to do some crafting.

This fortnight at 

we are interested to know whether you prefer die cutting, fussy cutting or even use an electronic machine to cut your images.

 Nine times out of ten I die cut my images using a round or square die to mount on my card blank. For this DT piece I have done just that but also paper pieced her arm chair which meant some fussy cutting. Not quite as good as Pauline but I made an effort!! 

The sweet stamp set was a Birthday present and I really enjoyed colouring it with my Promarkers. Allsorts Challenge theme this week is YELLOW, so I used that as inspiration for the colourway and the cute chicks were the starting point. Hope I have included enough of the sunshine colour!! the pretty papers are from an old Pebbles inc pad, Tealightful.

Thank you for stopping by. See you soon xx

A pretty card Sarah and love your paper piecing. A lovely design with the pretty flowers.
I enjoy fussy cutting, as I am not a lover of cutting and leaving a white edge. I also love my dies.
Hugs, Carol

A really lovely card Sarah, a fabulous image and beautiful fussy cutting too :o)
I seem to have missed several of your posts recently, sorry about that - the time just whizzes by lately and there's never enough time to cram everything in the day, I must try harder.

Lena said...

Such a sweet card, Sarah. Love the design, the sweet image and your fussy cutting of the chair. I do all three depending on the project I'm working on. I would have to say though, that I probably die cut at least 60% of the time, 39% using my Silhouette or Cricut and then that last 1% would be fussy cutting. I'm not fond of fussy cutting ~ too fussy of a job for me :-)
May joy and peace surround you, contentment latch your door,
and happiness be with you now and bless you evermore!
♥ Lena
