New Dies

Don't you love it when the post delivers little bags of goodness from all over the place! Yesterday I got some new dies and today I got some new rubber! Show you that later - the dies got a run yesterday afternoon. I have been looking at this for a while and then got it but don't really know what to do with it.  I will need to play around more - this was just the initial cut to make sure they worked.  The dies are steel ones from Memory Box. 

SU Whisper White card folded to make the base. SU Lucky Limeaid for the canopy and Kraft for the tree.  The bird is chipboard from the stash, coloured up with white gel pen. The sentiment is stitched on (yes, I threaded a needle!) and is from my stash from so long ago I cannot remember where I got it. Ribbon is SU and the brads are too.  The sun is a 1" circle punched out of SU Summer Sun and sponged with SU Apricot ink to make it look more dramatic. I also sponged Memento Summer Sky ink around the tree and SU LL ink around the edges of the card to create a border.

I am going to enter it into Die Cuttin Divas.  Challenge #51, except I turned it around.

I'd love to see your other experiments with this die. I love tree images and have often considered getting this die, but samples are hard to find of the die cuts getting used. Thanks for posting this one.

Love how you turned it around, Susan. Now that is such a nice die.

Thanks for reminding me about using a mouse mat under my stamps.
