MCS Mini Release - Day 1 - Rolled Flowers

Good morning! The design team at My Craft Spot is excited this morning to be sharing sneak peeks for day 1 of a 2 day mini release! There are two fun new metal dies - both of which are available now in the My Craft Spot Store. There is also a giveaway! 

Today we are playing with Rolled Flower dies:

Here is what I made with them:

I decided to make a fun gift bag! I cut the flowers with some handmade paper from a DCWV paper pad - the soft paper rolled up so easily in these flowers! I rolled them up and added a tiny pearl to the centers of them. 

I also cut a tiny vellum doily using Tiny Doilies 2 Metal Dies and tucked that behind the flowers. I used a glassine bag that I got a while back from Michael's - it has gold chevrons on it! So hard to see in the pictures, but it is a lovely soft gold pattern. I adhered that to my gift bag, then added the doily, flowers, and a bow using some Sage Jute String.

Next, I took a tag I cut with my Silhouette Cameo, and stamped a birthday greeting using Chalkboard Sentiments Stamp Set. I heat embossed it with gold embossing powder to coordinate. 

Finished off with a bit of Spring Moss Crinkle ribbon on the top of my tag!

Here is the other die set we will be sharing projects with tomorrow:

And today's giveaway - Kimberly will pick a comment from one of our blogs to win a $15 Gift Certificate to My Craft Spot:

There will also be one winner drawn each day from orders placed - so if you have a little shopping to do, this is a great opportunity!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope to see you again tomorrow to share my projects with the fun new Washi Tape Dies!
