Old + New | Guest Post by Kelly Purkey

As I take a mini maternity leave after having my baby boy on September 18th, I have a series of talented friends/guest posters who agreed to fill in here throughout part of this month. I will try to pop in with random posts here and there, but we are just trying to squeeze out every bit of goodness of family time right now. Enjoy!


Kelly Purkey | Anchor card I love combining old product that I've been saving with new product that I'm super excited about - it's the best of both worlds, right? For this card I put together a piece of my Hambly transparency that I've been hoarding these like crazy - they're still one of my favorite products - with a new Kelly Purkey Anchor wafer thin die.Kelly Purkey | Anchor card The cool thing about using the dies with a die cutting machine is that they work well with so many materials, especially something that is just a little thicker like the transparencies. You can manually crank it through a couple times to make sure you're getting the cuts all the way through.Kelly Purkey | Anchor cardI used my Kelly Purkey anchor die for the front of the card and attached it with Glossy Accents so you can't see the adhesive. The sentiment comes from my Kelly Purkey Come Sail Away stamp set for a super easy and simple card. Dies and transparencies, what a perfect pair!

Kelly also has an awesome new November card kit featuring our Cut & Paste line!
