I created a card using our new Drink Glasses dies and our Tag Zig Zag die.  Super easy card - just die cut shapes...and then I used the negative cut on a tag and added "wine" inside the glass with hot pink paper.


...and here is a card I created a while back but I thought it was appropriate since some of our release is fall related.  I used a Tsukineko spectrum ink pad and layered the stamped leaves.  I used Leafy Greens and Good Gab stamps 


and since our release is just a couple of days away....I thought I'd share our die release with you...check it!

You will notice that we changed to the "open frame" style.  I would have honestly started out this way but didn't know how to make it happen...we figured it out and will continue to have open dies whenever possible.  The outline width is still the same and you can stamp first of die cut first - that is entirely up to you :). I am very excited!

Wine Tag

Works great for "door hang" decor.
The circle tag makes fabulous wine charms.

 It ended up blowing up and also blew up his factory.

Thank you for stopping by :)
