If you are following the hop in order then you just came from Betty's site Kitty Stamp where she featured some great projects using the blossom box die. She sure has inspired me to get my die out and actually use it!!
On my stop I am showcasing the Candy Wrapper die and each of my projects show you ways to use your die in nontraditional ways. I love coming up with ways to use my dies in an alternate fashion.
Below is my first project and it is perfect for this time of the year, I know Fall is in full swing here (and a bit of winter) and is my favorite time of the year!
I made this using the Gently Falling stamp set as well as the perfect pennants die. Doesn't look like candy wrapper die does it. I used two partial candy wrapper pieces to make this darling little box similar to how I altered the Milk Carton die. To give the leaves the dimension of color I first stamp the main image and then used my water color crayons and markers to add additional color and I also watercolor some shimmer paint to them to add a bit of sparkle.
This next project is perfect for Halloween treats! Who doesn't love Halloween AND Treats?!!?
For this one I did the same technique to elongate my die as I did when I extended my matchbox die. I used the set Wicked Cool and made the little lolly which you can pull off and save after all the treats are gone and hang on a little Halloween tree.
Lastly I came up with this fun sparkly Christmas basket.
Besides the Candy Wrapper die I also used the Stocking Accents die to decorate the basket. I used two entire pieces to create the base of the basket, I flipped the bottom ends to make the basket base and flipped top ends over the sides to give my basket some fun depth. I also slide some out that wonderful glitter paper underneath the flaps to really make it sparkle!!
I hope you like my projects and have found a few new ways to use your Candy Wrapper die. Now hop on over to Sara's site Lily's Ink Pad and fun projects using the Milk Carton die!! Happy Stamping!
