Hi there. Today the Serendipity Stamps Design Team is having a blog hop to share the new Teapot and Tea Cup dies that Serendipity is releasing.
Like Serendipity's other dies, these are very detailed and produce wonderfully elegant die cuts.
Before I share my card, I want to make sure you know that one random commenter will be chosen from the Design Team blogs to win a $20 gift code - so be sure to leave a comment on each blog, you could be the winner! Comments are open through March 30 at midnight and will be announced on the Serendipity Stamps Blog on the 31st. You should have arrived here from Vickie's blog. If you'd like to join us from the beginning, things are kicking off on the Serendipity Blog.
I used my nifty technique to replace the die cuts bits with different colors. It really isn't anything mind-blowing, I just remove all the cut out pieces from my bottom layer (in this case, the blue teapot and cup) and adhere it to my card, making sure to leave adhesive in all the little openings. Then I die cut the design from the other colors I want to use. I carefully remove the die cut shape from my cutting plate so that all the pieces remain intact, and then place it over my original bottom layer. I use a paper piercing tool to pop out the little pieces I want to fill in my die cut. I repeat with the different colors until my design is complete. It is much easier that trying to maneuver all those little bits into their right spots. Here is a close up of the new dies.
My friend Jeanne will be your next stop along the hop, here's the full list if you need it.
Have a great day!
