The rest of my afternoon was spent playing with some new product. First, the Slice machine. It took me awhile trying to figure out how to go through all the icons on the card and when I did figure it out, I had to laugh at myself. Duh...need to press the small arrows to go through all the icons. I did cut out different sized shapes but I'll have to make something with it another day.
Then I took out my Just Rite samples and made a card with one of the big wooden stampers. I love how all these stamps fit in the Spellbinders dies perfectly and you can cut the different shapes out after you stamp it. Here's a card that I made.
I embossed the background with the Christmas ornaments embossing folder from Cuttlebug. The stamp is from Just Rite and I cut it out with the Spellbinders classic circle. The red circle frame behind that is the Hello Kitty die frame. And santa is from the new Sizzix Sizzlit Christmas set. The red bling is Hero Arts.Notice how big the stamp is from Just Rite? There's more sayings in the set and I'll be making cards to show you. Then I used a new XL die from Sizzix and made a favor box to hold treats.This is the new box with tab die. I embossed the front with a Cuttlebug snowflake folder. And punched out a snowflake and poured chunky white glitter on it to look like snow. The stamp is from Hero Arts.
The glitter looks better in this photo. I got the glitter from the store. I actually like it better. It's easier to clean up chunky glitter than the ultra fine type that I normally use on my projects. The side of the box has a pleat which I didn't take a photo of but if you want to buy this die, just ask for the box with tab.
Well, hope you all voted today and thanks for stopping by to visit. Leave me a comment and I'm going to give away this cute clear stamp set. I think it's supposed to be a ladybug. I'll draw a winner before the weekend.
