My Creative Time 76th Edition Sneak Peek Day 3!

Okay everyone, today is the last day of our sneak peeks for this release!  I know you've seen some amazing inspiration so far, so let's keep it going!!

Today we are taking a look at the new Chunky Tag Dies!  A good set of tag dies is a must in every craft room. You may be thinking to yourself, "I already have a good set of tag dies", and you probably do, but...these are different, I promise.

First of all, these are an awesome size. Second, they layer. And third, which I think is a plus, is that they do not cut a hole for the ribbon.  This is a nice feature because you can use them just as shaped dies without the hole getting in the way!  I think everyone owns some sort of hole punch, so it's easy to place the hole wherever you'd like it.

I discovered that by cutting two of the largest "tags" in this set and adhering them together with 1/8" Scor-Tape, you can actually make a pocket that will fit a gift card!


Nice view, right? We'll get to the front in a minute :). I didn't actually have a gift card on hand but I cut a piece of cardstock down to the size of a credit card and it slid in and out without a problem!

For the front of my gift card pocket, I stamped the polka dots from the Egg Decorations set, which we showed you yesterday, in a light purple ink.  I took the next die to the largest one, which happens to be stitched and cut that from white cardstock as well. 


The sentiment comes from the Fun Vertical Greeting Stamp and Die set.  The hearts come from the I'll Never Let You Go set that we sneaked on Tuesday!  I did some basic ink blending on each heart and die cut them out.  I did used a hole punch on the stitched layer, as I wanted to add a bit of ribbon. I foam mounted that layer on and added some sequins as well!

This set has a lot of possibilities and I can't wait to show you more!!

  20. Everyone needs a good set of tags I totally agree! That's a niche idea without the hole at the top and it works really nicely as the gift card holder. You're really doing some great sneak peeks! xx
