Here is the card I created with this die:

Hello Fall (TDD)

Doesn’t this card make you ready for the fall?  It gives such a warm feeling to me.  Those pumpkins are just too cute!

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I used retired Stampin Up! Polka Dots Embossing Folder to emboss my Stampin’ Up! Mossy Meadow cardstock.
  2. Then I cut the stripes of Recollections White Cardstock and Stampin’ Up!Blackberry Bliss Cardstock and adhered them to my card base.
  3. Then I die cut the pumpkins out of Stampin’ Up! Tangelo Twist Cardstock and Stampin’ Up! Mossy Meadow Cardstock.
  4. I adhered the pumpkins to the card panels with foam tape.
  5. I stamped my the sentiment using Stampin’ Up! For All Things Stamp Set using Stampin’ Up! Mossy Meadow Ink.
  6. I added Lucy’s Little Things Just Peachy Sparkly Shaker Sequin for added dimension to the card panel and Clear Wink of Stella to the pumpkins.

So what do you think?  Please let me know below.

Kymona Tracey ← You’re here!

Now onto the dies I did get to play with!!

 

Top Dog Dies Cupcake Die SetHappy Birthday (TDD)

This was the first die I played with as soon I received my happymail!!  Its the Top Dog Dies Cupcake Die Set. If you follow me, you’ve seen this card before.  I was given permission to showcase this card before the release.  That was exciting.

This die contains 7 dies, but one of the dies have 5 small cupcake toppers.  Super cute and versatile die set.  I love the different frosting topping.

 

Top Dog Dies Balloon Die SetGo and Celebrate (TDD) Lets Party Celebrate (TDD)

Up next is the Top Dog Dies Balloon Die Set!!  How super cute are these cards?  I used the biggest balloon die to create all of my cards. This set has 6 dies ranging from big to little.  I showcased these balloons last week to get you excited about the new release.

I will showcase the other dies on my Wednesday Series!  So stay tune for that.

 

Now onto the last die set and card!!  This set and card is my favorite of them all.

Take a look:

Top Dog Dies Unicorn Die Set

Unicorn (TDD)

I just love this card.  I love the colors, the shaker pocket, the splatters and the unicorn!!  I’m super please with how this card turn out.

I used Top Dog Dies Unicorn Die Set to create my unicorn.  I cut the mane and horn out of my watercolor panels that I created weeks ago.  I have so much of these panels left.  If you haven’t seen them, take a look.

Watercolor pieces

These panels have gone a long way!

To create this card, I die cut the unicorn out of white cardstock and the mane and horn out of the watercolor panel you see above.

To make the shaker window I cut out the white panel.  I used my Fuse tool to create the circle pocket.  I added Lucy Adams Cherry Blossom Sequin Mix to the packet panel.

I used Mama Elephant Sightseeing Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment with My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

I put my card together using foam adhesive.

Once everything was in place, I used my WPlus9 Bloomsberry Spray Mist to create the splatters on my card.

I have to admit, I sprayed wrong and I thought I messed up the entire card.  The big splatters that you see happened because the ink was seeping through the top.  I didn’t realize it until I went to shake the bottle up and it spilled all over my card front.

It turned out to be a Happy Mistake!! I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Wait!!!!!  Before I go I have a giveaway!!

All you have to do is leave a comment below letting me know if you like unicorns.  This giveaway will end 11:59pm August 7, 2015.

I’m giving away the unicorn die set!!

So what do you think of my card?  Please let me know below.

Don’t forget, the full release is will happen tomorrow, August 9th!  Please be sure to come back so you can see what my fellow DT members and myself have created for this release!!

To create these cards, I just die cut the balloon adhered them to the top left portion of the card.  I used Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Bakers Twine.  I used Mama Elephant Make A Wish Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment using Lawn Fawn Deep Sea Ink.  I added Clear Wink of Stella to the sentiment and the stars.

Lets Party Celebrate (TDD)

 

I used some glitter paper to create these balloons.  I love how they turned out.

To create these cards, I just die cut the balloon adhered them to the top left portion of the card.  I used my Copic Multiliner to draw the strings.  I used Simon Says Stamp Birthday Big Wishes Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

Now you see those two stars in between my sentiment?  Well, I had to add those because some of the black ink caught my paper on the pink balloon while I was stamping it.  I think I saved it pretty well. I used Lucy Adams Star Shine Sparkly Sequin to save the day.

So what do you think?  Let me know below.

I added my hippo up against the wording on the bottom of the paper.  I cut out the hello’s from another one of the pattern papers in the pack and adhered them to the card front.  The hippo looks like he is saying hello with the tilted head, LOL!!

Hello (TDD)

For this card, I used the Top Dog Dies Pocket Pages Banner Die Set  and Top Dog Dies Hello Die Set to create this card.

I die cut all of the pieces out of Snap Studio Just the Basics pattern paper and adhered them to my pocket page card.

To create this card, I just die cut my white cardstock using the two biggest die to create my card front and used only the biggest die for the back panel.

I attached the teal pattern paper behind the front card panel.

I scored a line to the top of the back card panel and added tape to attach the front and the back panel.  Since I added a score line the card can open.

I used Simon Says Stamps Lila’s Heart Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment.

Super cute.  Cute for a pocket page scrapbook too.
