The butterflies are not attached within the die which is perfect for die cutting them in a different color or using them individually for a different project!  Our online sale is still going on until Sunday - you can pick up this die for 20% off until Saturday, April 25th!  Happy Earth Day!

Sweet Deer Bust _MG_2245

 

Here are a couple cards using our new deer stamp (5512E)!  Amber, from our design team, did a creative job using a few dies as well!  The gold flower is embossed and I love how she only used the flower part of this die - she cut off the stem.  For the green tag card, she cut up a wreath die and used bits and pieces to give a foliage look!  What a great idea!  Love the gold trim on the green tag also.  Thanks for checking in!

Tim Holtz Distressed Ink - Abandoned Coral! photo 1 photo 2 photo 3Each month Tim Holtz is coming out with a new ink color and the abandoned coral color is the new one that just arrived in our stores last week!  These samples are done using the distress paint!  I actually used it to ink up the back of the flower stamp to give a distressed impression.  I also used the paint to color in the flowers (5511I sketched blooms) on the sample card above plus used it to give a distressed border around the card.  I love all of the different products and they can be used for so many different applications.  Next month, the color is mermaid lagoon!  Check back to see what we come up using the new color.
