All About The Dies Day 2!


If you're just joining in on the fun -- today is DAY 2 of the All About The Dies blog hop with the designers of Impression Obsession! If you've never taken a peek at all the dies IO offers, my goodness! You need to! And, all you need to do is click  HERE to see!

So for the hop, all the designers had to do was pick up some of their favorite dies and.. CREATE! Stay tuned, later in my post I am going to tell you how to win some!

On to my creation!
Isn't this little Paper Cone adorable? It's a die! All you need to do is run it through your cutting machine and the lines are embossed letting you know exactly where to fold -- how fun! Pair it up with THIS stamp set and you have a quick and easy creation that's perfect for spring thank yous! There are even dies to match the Clear Spring Medley Stamp set HERE!

After I was done matting up my image and adding some bling and a bow, I did stamp the sentiment - Heartfelt Thanks -- and embellished with a tiny pearl! And for the bottom? I added a fancy border thanks to the Border Duo 1 Die Set.

Here's a close up of the cute flowers in the little Paper Cone!


And that, my friends is it!  Now, for some more creative inspiration, hop on over and see the rest of the IO DT!

Oh, I needed this. It's so windy here, it's like it's snowing at times. Where, oh where, is my SPRING? It is all over Julie's blog. Your flower cone is perfect! I love how you used the blue polka dotted piece to give your creation a bit of zing. Your sewing is divine, as I stare at Grandma's machine and long for the courage to figure it all out. Chicken poopy will continue to layer her cards with double sided tape as she has unimaginatively done for the last 20 years. I am wonderful at predictable! denise g.
