Hello and Happy Easter to all our crafty readers :0)
Instead of a seasonal project for you today I've been playing with my
new Paper Smooches dies... the Big Bloom die to be exact, and I've come up with
two extra uses for it besides the intended flower shape...
Using the middle sized flower with the Bold Blooms stamp set is the obvious way to use this
die set and the three different sizes allow you to add dimension when building your blooms.
I am quite impressed with how the die cuts so close to the stamped shape... I used the technique from this post to make sure I placed them precisely before running through the Bigshot.
I kept my blooms simple and used the loopy leaf die to make my posy of flowers :0)
Now how about using the three different sizes to build a tree??!!
Love the dimension you can make with them or use singly as three different size trees...
I've used a tree trunk from Spring Groves over the large shaped bloom aperture and
hung a bird box from Hang Ups to make a new home card :0)
I thought I would experiment cutting the blooms in half and
made fluffy clouds with them.... I think they work quite well in some Lawn Fawn
patterned paper with a punched out sun for a quick get well soon type of card.
I love when a die can have so many uses.... I feel it's earned a worthy place in my craftroom :0)
I'm still thinking of more ... how about you??
