Spellbinders / October 2017 Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY

Daisy 

Welcome!  I am so honored to be helping Spellbinders alongside so many fabulous designers to celebrate their October release of Die D-Lites.  They have some amazing new die collections! 

Spellbinders


I went very Clean and Simple to show off these dies.  I love florals and used the new Die D-lites Daisy 2 Etched Dies I started with 2 panels trimmed at an angle, one in grey and one in black.  After adding these to my white top folding notecard, I added a stamped sentiment to follow the angle of the panels.  Using the Daisy 2 Dies, several were die cut with red, pink, yellow, green, and orange cardstocks.  Once I had these in an arrangement I liked, I used Press 'n Seal to pick up the arrangement, add glue, and adhere in place.  TIP:  these dies also emboss but I didn't want that much dimension here.
