CUTplorations Die Release Hop Day 2

.... and overall Blog Hop DAY 6 ...

Hi All! It's PARTY TIME!!!!! STAMPlorations is turning 3 and they are celebrating BIG! It's Blog Hop Time!

..... and Shery is releasing a new product too ... CUTplorations thin metal dies ... and this is day 2 of their release ...

First up is my DT contribution to DAY 6 of the STAMPlorations blog hop. Today I was working with the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies ....

... and added a little help from SMILE and the CUTplorations Word Die Hugs whilst going crazy with spritzing inks. It's pretty straight forward, cut a couple of Crazy Double Running Stitch rectangles, a couple of hugs and a piece of coloured card, spritz freely with ink,stamp the calla lily, shadow layer the hugs and layer everything up as seen finishing off with some sequins.

Here is a closer look at the shadow layered hugs and stitching detail of the nesting dies ....

Now back to the blog hop ... as with every blog hop there will be prizes for commenting on participating blogs. You can find all the links for DAY 6 here on the STAMPlorations Blog.
