With our new dies releasing this month I have been playing around with them, looking at what I can do with them - i love to get the best value possible from all WMS product and dies are going to be such fun in so many ways!
Our dies are going to be a mixture of both open dies, and closed dies depending on what suits the stamp it matches or the purpose of the die. For this post I'm using a closed die from the Little Lanterns Die Set.
Closed dies are dies that you cannot see through, they are not open in the middle section. Closed dies will have little round target holes and while these are so handy dandy for lining up die cuts, the target holes also cut the card. this is absoltely no problem when I am die cutting the actual shape, but when I want to use the negative space left by the die cut, I might not want to see those little circles, let me show you what I did.
Zig Zag Backgrounder, Little lanterns, Little lanterns die set and Light of the world sentiments. inks were SU Cherry Cobbler, Tsukineko Versafine Black and SU daffodil and Wplus9 White. I clear embossed the sentiment with wow ultra fine clear embossing powder.
