Hey y’all! Thanks for joining me today on this fun blog hop! If you got this far you are almost all the way through the list, lol! Since you’ve come so far, I will keep it short and sweet and get straight to the point!
Here is the first card I have to share, it was also on the start off post at the OWH site but I included it here so I could give you the details:
For this one I used the thank you ticket die and I tried to make it look like a strip of red tickets! The stamp in the background is from the Tim Holtz Travel Blueprint set, stamped in white pigment ink on navy blue cardstock. I tied on a little red, white, and blue baker’s twine as well.
For my second card I used the same die in a different way:
I really love the look of all the little wood products that are popular in papercrafting right now. I thought I’d try a variation on that. I used my die to cut a piece of thin chipboard and then I stamped on it with a woodgrain stamp (from All Night Media). I love how it came out! I tied on a bit of baker’s twine, layered it up with some cute scraps and ribbon, and what a fun spring-timey card!
My final card is an AnyHero card. In addition to the beautiful blank handmade cards for troops to write home on, Operation Write Home also includes notes TO the troops to thank them for their service and encourage them during their deployments. For this card I used this great eagle die on some mirror-finish gold cardstock:
The picture does not do justice to that shiny gold eagle. The blue layer is dry embossed with a small stars pattern and popped on dimensional tape over the red layer. The die cut eagle is also on dimensionals. I heat embossed the sentiment from Stamper’s Best (also an OWH fundraiser set!) with gold detail embossing powder on a strip of vellum.
That’s all I have to share today! I hope you’ve enjoyed this blog hop and gotten some great ideas of how to use these new dies! Your next stop is Nicole at Scraps and Stamps!
