Hi Everyone, thanks for stopping by today and welcome to our latest blog hop at Cheery Lynn Designs. We are all excited to be sharing with you the latest North American Release of dies. There is 63 dies in this latest collection, where you can find every state and region of the U.S and Canada.
I am first on the blog hop roll, so please just click on Lisa's name at the end of my post to continue hopping.
I decided to make a home decor item as inspiration with my dies of choice Texas, Maine and California. So let me show you how I made this.
I started off by cutting a piece of Greyboard to approx 12 x 4. Next I cut coffee stirrer sticks in half and trimmed the angled end off them. I glued in place across my greyboard and weighed it down until dry. I gave this board a whitewash of paint and a layer of DecoArt varnish to seal.
You will see on this photo I glued two papers together onto white cardstock to resemble the American flag and placed my dies on to cut out.
My lady was cut out from the Maine die using Tim Holtz Family pack. All my State Letters, Stars and Explore were heat embossed with Red Tinsel embossing powder for an added sparkle.
My Red Roses are to represent the national flower of the United States, adding some leaves and Baby's Breath for added detail.
I added some metal screw brads to the corners.
These dies are fantastic for scrapbooking, memorabilia projects, cards, home decor and lots more. You will see lots of inspiration from my fellow Teamies as you visit their blogs.
Another look at my finished project.
