We are all very excited to be introducing a new product by My Favorite Things, Die Cuts!! The first release will include three new die cuts, Jumbo Scallops, Scalloped Scallops, and CLOUDS!! You will be able to purchase them on Wednesday, May 5th!
Be sure to stop by Kim's Blog after 11:00 am to see the list of all the designers who are will be sharing projects with this new product today!
For my card today I used the Clouds and the Jumbo Scallop die cuts and the stamp set, Boy & Dog - Tree Swing. I colored the image with Copics and sponged the background with distressing ink. Then I made my clouds!
I used felt for my clouds. This is just felt I picked up at Michaels. Kim is going to be carrying wool craft felt that I can't wait to get my hands on! I found that if I add a piece of copier weight paper on top of my felt the die cuts easier through the felt.
So here is my cutting stack on my Cuttlebug. Plate A, Plate B, felt, die cut, copier paper, plate C. It cuts clean and easily!
Here is a close-up of my clouds. I added a little sun peaking above the clouds. Then added machine stitching, ribbon, a button, and a sentiment for the set finish it off.
If you line up the die cut with the edge of the paper you know it will be straight and you lose very little paper. My cutting stack here is plate A, plate B, paper, die cut, and plate C.
Here is the inside of my card using the Clouds and Jumbo Scallops again. So quick and easy, I love it!!
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to stop by tomorrow. MFT May Teasers begin and I will have more ways to use the new die cuts!
