Hello everyone! And welcome to this fun "MINI" release blog hop! If you did not arrive here from Liz's blog, then you might want to start off at the beginning of the hop HERE - because there is NOTHING you want to miss! Emma has been getting SEVERAL requests to make a die to coordinate with her cute Typewriter stamp that is in the "Once Upon A Time" stamp set. As for the "Never Be Lost" set, well...this is a MUST HAVE for LOTS of fun projects such as your project life albums, scrapbook pages, smashbooking, cards, etc. The possibilities are simply endless with these 2 new items! Sit back, relax and hop along with us to see some AMAZING and DIFFERENT ways to use these 2 "tiny but mighty" new items! ;)
I'm sure you know by now, that this little die is technically called a "geo-tag", but I thought I would show you how it could be used as a flame for a birthday candle. How fun is that?!? Ok, all of the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink. And the pretty patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye ~ Ooh La La collection.
To make the cupcake, I used the MCT ~ Celebrate Good Times. For the candle, I used the label die in the MCT ~ Chocolate Greetings. And for flame, I used the 'geotag' in the brand new MCT ~ Never Be Lost. To make the frosting, I took some fun "xoxoxo" ribbon from my stash (I think it's from SEI, but I can't remember) and all I did was use the hot glue gun - add a dab of glue, fold some ribbon over and repeat. Then I put the whole thing on pop dots for dimension.
On the left side of the card, I used one of the MCT~ Fun Stitched Edge Dies. Then I added a bow with some hemp twine and in the center I put a little flower gem with a pearl in the center. For the tag and sentiment, I used the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Greetings.
Since you all have seen the typewriter stamp already, I thought I would use the stamp and die in a more traditional way. I thought this card would be a fun way to give a crafty gift card to a friend. :) The black card base is from Recollections. The gray background is from the Echo Park ~ Chillingsworth Manor collection. And I cut that piece using the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die. I used some hemp twine at the bottom and added a couple of little red flowers from my stash.
I used the brand new MCT ~ Typewriter Die and the typewriter stamp from the MCT ~ Once Upon A Time. All 3 sentiments are from that set as well. The inks are black & vermillion ~ Ranger Archival Ink.
