TLC413 ~ Focus on the Dies ~ (1/21/13)

Hey everyone! It's my turn to host the Technique Challenge and I hope you will join in!

Our technique today is to use your die cuts, and make them the focal point of your project: Minimal stamping -- use only a sentiment or small stamp for a background if desired. In other words, the main focal point should be a die cut, not a stamped image.

Keyword: TLC413 (no spaces)

My sample: BEE MINE

TLC413 Gallery Submissions

I hope you will play along!

Talking TLC413 Button Tree with Lattice

Judy- love this challenge! I used a Christmas tree felt ornament, dressed up with buttons and adhesive gems, and my new Spellbinder's Lattice Pendant die, with red paper underneath. Finished with a luncheon napkin triangle vertical border. Here's Button Tree with Lattice

Heart TLC413 Hearts Everywhere

Judy- had to do another one, as we are getting closer to Valentine's Day- and I love red! I used some dc hearts from my stamping buddies- and my QuicKutz Nesting Eyelet Hearts die as the frame for my sentiment. Ran the background through my Big Shot with CB's Divine Swirls EF, then outlined the raised pattern here and there in gold. Added some dc buttons- Sizzlits buttons #5 die- and some buttons, bows and a pearl or 2. Finished with a deep purple bow. Here's Hearts Everywhere

I've been away for awhile, but I still remember how to run a die cut. I used only one stamp and it's in the center, so I hope this is acceptable.
