My Creative Time: Too Die For Tuesday

Hi, today is Too Die For Tuesday over on the My Creative Time Blog. We are showing new ways you can use your dies to get more use out of them. I used a dry embossing technique with the Frame Die.  I love how it turned out!! 

A thick white card stock mat was cut out using a paper trimmer, larger than the Frame Die.  The following sandwich was used in the Cuttlebug:

 B Plate
Rubber Mat
Three Paper Shims
Thick White Card Stock Mat
Frame Die
B Plate

 It was run through the Cuttlebug a few times to get a great impression. 

The embossed white card stock mat was layered onto the a red card stock mat. The two mats were then backed with a card base. 

The little flowers/stems were stamped and cut out with the coordinating dies from the A Beautiful Day Stamp Set. The petals were accented with Copic markers and the flower centers were covered with Glossy Accents. 

The "hello" sentiment was stamped and cut out with the coordinating die from the Fun Notes stamp set. The stamped die cut was colored in with a yellow Copic marker. Then two more hello die cuts were cut out to layer on the back of the original. 

The little butterfly was stamped and cut out with a coordinating die also from A Beautiful Day Stamp Set.  The butterfly was colored in with Copic markers. The little trail was stamped using one of the stamps from the Thanks For The Lift Stamp Set

The card was embellished with a little twine bow and some clear sequins. 

Products Used:

Bazzill Card Stock
Recollections Card Stock
Copic Markers
American Crafts Twine
Glossy Accents
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Clear Sequins
