Happy Monday! It's a crazy, tired, busy one after one wonderful weekend with Clearly Besotted Stamps peeps Stephanie, Caryn (and Stephanie's husband, Dean!) promoting CBS at a show on Saturday and teaching a CBS workshop on Sunday (Check out my Facebook page or Instagram for pics of it.) Such fun, but I'm playing catch up with sleep now - especially after losing an hour (hello, BST! :D)
But tired or not, nothing stops for some sneaky peeks Top Dog Dies stylee:
Yup, this week the Top Dog Dies design team are sharing some projects created using the new Top Dog Dies release that will be available for purchase April 5th.
As a literacy teacher, my heart skipped a beat when I spotted this speech mark die from the Top Dog Dies Camera Finishers set. I'm a sucker for punctuation. It then skipped a little faster when I saw the hashtag die too! So combining the two, I created a card suited to congratulating someone who is a tweeter or tech savvy at least. :)
- To keep the hashtag flush with the white panel, I removed the white hashtag that was created with the die and inserted one die cut from black card. To keep it secure, I simply adhered a thin strip of card behind it.
- I went a little patterned paper crazy here! I find that if I'm struggling to use a detailed pattern, then it usually makes a nice background pattern for a card and makes a tiny dent in the huge stash of the stuff that I'm hoarding LOL!
- The hashtag die comes in a frame that is longer than this. I simply trimmed it down to fit my sentiment on but you can fit longer sentiments on it if you wish!
- Like the idea of a hashtag greeting? Keep it authentic and don't have spaces in-between stamped words: e.g #happybirthday . Simply ink up each word separately and stamp them close together.
*Shameless Plug Alert!*
