I thought I'd let you all in on what I use for generating my inside card sentiments. Paper! Simple as that! It cuts small letters much better than cardstock, especially intricate curly fonts like All Mixed Up or Loop De Lou . I collected all my paper that I've had from The Paper Mill cut it into A5 size & put it in a box. There are tons of colours which you can match up (otherwise just use black) and it cuts like a knife through butter! Put your blade depth and your pressure at 4 (med on Expression) and you will be good to go! You will save yourself a load of headache & wasted cardstock, believe me!
Hope this little tip helps. Let me know!
Chandeliers seem to be everywhere at the moment so I thought that I'd go with the flow with this one! Sorry about the poor photo BTW! I wanted the chandelier which was cut from black mirri card, to look as though it was hanging, so I suspended it from a 'pelmet' cut from a piece of contrasting paper by Pink Petticoat. The main backing paper is from Clare Curd by Papermania. I used hot pink card for contrast. The white panel is Dotty Bazzil edged with a Fiskars border punch. I wrapped hot pink ribbon around the 'pelmet' and added a bow & large layered flower. Although you can't see them, there are black Papermania gems on the droplets of the chandelier. I also decorated the inside.
