Die-namics Teaser!

Welcome to MFT's June Die-namics teasers!! I am super excited about this month's release and can't wait to get my hands on the new dies!

For today's project, I used 2 of last month's Die-namics - the cloud die and the jumbo scallop die. I'd had this idea rolling around in my head for a while and wanted to try it out - that is covering a shape with rows and rows of scallops. I decided to cover the top of the Sheltering Tree with Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety paper cut into scallop strips. I sponged each strip with some green ink and pulled them forward for some dimension. I cut some clouds and sponged them with blue ink and used a grass punch to punch two different patterned papers for grass. Guess what kind of die is coming out this month? Yup - grass!! So excited to be able to cut different materials with it!
Here's a close up of my tree top.
Here's a picture of how I created the tree top. I cut a whole whack (a very technical term!) of scallop strips and adhered them to a matching piece of cardstock in an alternating pattern. I made sure I only put adhesive on the very top of the strip so that I'd be able to bend the scallops forward. Then I placed a circle nestie over top and ran it through my Cuttlebug. Voila!
Are you ready for a look at what's being released this month? Here you go....

Fresh Cut Grass measures 6" long and ¾" high at the tallest grass blade.

Jumbo Ric Rac is 6" long and 1 ½" wide and is the first 1 ½" ric rac die on the market.

Our revolutionary Ribbon RE:Creations Grosgrain Texture Board is designed to exactly mimic grosgrain ribbon. When used after cutting a Jumbo Ric Rac Shape, your paper project will look as if you’ve adorned it with expensive jumbo ric rac! The effect is subtle, but feels and looks just like fabric ribbon!
Sunshine is a two piece die, with an outer sunray die (2") and an inner circle (.875") for layering if desired.
How cool are those?? Don't forget to check Kim's blog after 11:00am EST for a list of all the designers previewing new dies today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Check back tomorrow for another teaser!
