Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day! This is the first of the series I will be doing on altered dies. I will be be doing this series on the first and third Thursdays of each month. I hope you will be inspired by my project today. I have been going through my dies and seeing NEW ways I can use them. I used three different dies and altered them on this card.
I started with my NEW Sizzix Tea Time die and the Cheery Lynn Lattice die shown here.
Next I cut the lattice using the Tea Time die for it to look like this.
I patted Versa Mark ink over the lattice shape, sprinkled on Sparkle embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle and heat set it. I then cut off the handle on the teacup and adhered the lattice shape over the cup for it to look like snow blocks of an igloo and then I cut an opening for a door.
I also added White Liquid Applique and Sparkle N Sprinkle Waterscape glitter to the bottom for "snow."
Next I used this Spellbinders Bracket Border die for my snow banks. I cut three of these, turned them upside down and glued them together.
The saying on the card is from Sparkle N Sprinkle and the penguin is a Fiskars stamp.
I hope this has inspired you to look at your dies differently. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
