My Craft Spot Mini Release Day 2: Washi Tape Dies!

Happy Friday, my sparkly friends! I hope everyone is doing well. :o)

It's Day 2 of the Mini Release festivities at My Craft Spot! Yesterday we showcased the new gorgeous Flowers- Rolled Roses metal dies. Today we're featuring the fun new Washi Tape metal dies! Kimberly is offering more amazing prizes today, detailed below! :o)

These new dies are such fun to use! I made a card to sprinkle a friend with love. :o)
A close-up of the washi tape dies since the pastel tones aren't the easiest to see properly:
Aren't they sweet? I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out tiny hearts from my washi tape strips... I thought it would be such a fun way to begin a shower of love! I backed them with my favorite brown cardstock because you just can't go wrong with chocolaty hearts. (My base is also dark brown, though it looks black.) I covered them in Clear Wink of Stella for an abundance of shimmer. The delightful sentiment is from the Tasty Treats stamp set, which is one of my favorite of Kimberly's stamps!
The beautiful papers are from Wild Rose Studio's Peach Blossom collection. The umbrella is a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store, which I've adorned with pearls. Pearly love is also sprinkled amongst the hearts. 

I created my card base from an ornate rectangle frame cut file. The sunshiny MCS Buttercup crinkle ribbon is centered with a Wild Orchid Crafts scalloped pearl. The sweet daisy charm is from The Ribbon Girl.

Both new metal die sets are so versatile and inspiring! Be sure to visit the My Craft Spot blog to see the amazing work by my teamies! And don't forget... there is blog candy as part of this celebration!

Want to see both new sets of metal dies from the Mini Release?! :o)
