Taylored Expressions: Shaped Buckle Die
Taylored Expressions has a fun series of "buckle" dies - they have fancy buckles, shaped buckles and basic buckles. I was drawn to the Shaped Buckles because I thought the ladybug would be a fun touch on cheerful cards!! I paired it with the Think Happy Thoughts Stamp and Die Combo on this simple card.
Isn't it cute? (If you ignore my globs of glue in the center!)
If you haven't discovered Stick It Adhesive sheets - you have to try them. There's been product like it before but I've never been totally happy. These sheets are super thin so die cut well. You just stick a piece on the paper that you are cutting, then die cut, then you just peel the back off and adhere. There are two things that make this stand out for me. First, with other adhesives, I've often gotten strings of adhesive when I pull it off - no strings on this one. Second, I can never adhere correctly the first time. That's why I'm a liquid glue person - I need to be able to move things around. The Stick it sheets start out repositionable!! So when I put it down crooked to begin with, I can adjust it. You can see that my "happy" is straight and is firmly adhered! I think I have to order these things in bulk.
