Dream Big Release Blog Hop

Hi there, crafty friends. I’m thrilled to be part of THIS Blog Hop celebrating THIS new release. I have two cards to share featuring two new dies that are so fun…

For the first card…

I cut THIS die from several shades of colored card stock and assembled the pieces. For the background, I dry embossed THIS slimline die using the embossing mat in my die-cut machine. I love the texture it adds. Next, I adhered the ice cream cones down with Simon’s new foam tape squares and finished off the design with a few pre printed sentiments strips from THIS and THIS pack.

Here’s a closer look…
I also added a bit of sparkle to the edges of the ice cream using THIS sparkle pen…

For the second card…

I did the same process as the first card but used THIS die for the ice cream. I dry embossed THIS stencil in the background and used THIS die to cut the scalloped piece. I finished it off with the same sentiments.

There is much more inspiration to see. Click HERE for the next stop on the hop. Click HERE to start at the beginning of the hop.
