Stenciling and die-cutting

Hello and good afternoon dear friends!

I'm Halak and today I have a three projects to share with you.

Project #1

Taking the Messy Background stamp as my inspiration, I hand-drew and colored the background using Sakura pens.

The sentiment is the gorgeous Thank You die from the recently launched October release.

Apart from this die, I also used my favorite, the Rounded Rectangle Dual Stitched Die from an earlier release.

Now, an exciting piece of news.... you must have seen the gorgeous 11 cutting dies that were released by Peek-a-boo Designs (PABD) yesterday.

In actuality, there were not 11 but 12 cutting dies!

Due to a tech. glitch the die #12 which is a beautiful word die that spells the word Celebrate, could not be uploaded.

What does it look like you ask?

Well here are the pics, check it out!

Project #2

Here I've used the brand new Celebrate Word Die with the Arrows Stencil and die-cut the rectangle using the Rounded Rectangle Dual Stitched Die.

Project #3

For this project, I have once again used the Celebrate die and the Rounded Rectangle dual stitched die with the BOX-tacular Stencil.

I've looped a golden strand of thread on top and paired it with a black bow. I think the combination of black and gold really gives this project an extra special touch, what say? ^__^

Here are a list of PABD products that I've used in these projects :

I'd love to hear what you think! Thank you so much for stopping by! *Hugs*
