I have been itching to share projects using one of the “just-released” dies by TDD. Do you see these awesome flowers? They were cut using the Pretty Petals Die Set. I love how easy and fast they cut, and they also cut so clean!! You got to try this die. It comes with 6 different flowers so you can mix and match to create different looks every single time! How amazing is that?


TIP 1: Create different looks! I used couple of patterned papers for each flower die to create a versatile look. You can also use few of cardstocks for a verity of colored flowers!

TIP 2: Flowers come to life! Can you see that those petals have some dimensions? After cutting them, pinch the tip of each petal with your fingers to give a bit of soft fold. It makes a big difference and it is super easy!

I dressed up one of the flowers with the delicious Strawberry Solid Twine by The Twinery. The color is so rich and pretty, it is a great way to add a finishing touch. I tied a quick bow and glued it onto the center for the flower. Yummy!

I hope you enjoyed my inspiration. Wafer thin dies and twines can be great friends! Next stop is the amazing Wendy Sue’s blog. Also, don’t forget to head over to the Top Dog Dies Blog and The Twinery for a chance to win some goodies!!!! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a colorful, fun day!
