Hello Crafty Friends!
It's CUTplorations Mini Release time over on the STAMPlorations Blog and this means more Blog Hop Fun! Two sets of dies are being released. the Art Edges Border Dies and the ATC/Tag Builder Dies. You might have seen us using them already over the last couple of weeks ... you know what it is like once new toys arrive ... one just has to play!
Here are my DT projects for your inspiration ...
I used the toothy edge die to cut my piece of white card diagonally in half, layered it on some pretty paper, added my die cut sentiment, Peace On Earth Phrase Die, stamped and die cut my reindeer, Christmas Reindeer stamp set and Coordinating Dies, layered it all on my base card and finished of with a red nose and copious amounts of Stickles.
Next up is a tag I made using both of the new sets with a little help from Reindeer Games and Gone Postal, here it is ...
I die cut my basic shape from kraft card using the ATC/Tag Builder dies, added two white borders using one of the Art Edges dies and rounded the corners of the bottom one to make it blend in. I stamped, coloured and fuzzy cut my reindeer, white embossed my sentiment, added some ribbon and Stickles before popping my reindeer on to finish the tag. Here are a couple of close-ups ...
For the last one of today's projects, I combined the ATC/Tag Builder with the CUTplorations Word Die Wonderful and stamps from the Holiday Sketches: Christmas Candles, the Sentiment Builder: Christmas & New Year and the Large Ice Skates from the Stamp Lab.
I cut my tag from white card, added some pretty paper with a torn bottom edge, distressed the tag edges, stamped, coloured fuzzy cut and attached the skates, added my sentiment and finished off with twine, sequins and Stickles. Again I got a couple of close-up of the ATC/Tag Builder edges ...
Back to the Hop ...
