Fall Sneak Peek Blog Hop for Crafters Home, Day Two

Join Spellbinders™ Paper Arts and Crafters Home as we celebrate a Fall Sneak Peek!

Spellbinders and participating stores in the Crafters Home Buying Group are excited to introduce three new die template sets sold exclusively through Crafters Home stores through January! You’ll have to wait until February to find these die template designs in non-member stores. 
These new dies are in stock! Get yours now at a participating Crafters Home store! See the Spellbinders Blog for a list of participating stores.
 
Visit the Spellbinders Blog November 14 - 16 to see a new Spellbinders die template revealed each day! Visit designer blogs to enter the daily contests and see inspiring projects using the new releases. Comment on Designers Blogs and the Spellbinders Blog count as entries into daily drawings. Daily winners receive all three of the new designs!
Today's new die is S5-068 Dress Forms
$19.99


Lattice Dress: 1 7/8 x 2 ¼”
Scalloped Hem Dress: 2 1/8 x 2 5/8”
Plain Dress Form: 1 ¾ x 3 1/8
Swirled Dress: 1 ¾ x 3 1/8”


For my card base, I used the S4-341 Wavy Rectangle dies that was introduced yesterday.  I then cut/embossed the Scalloped Hem Dress die.  To create the pattern on the dress, I used the E8-004 Classic Ric Rac Edgabilities die template to cut out strips of pattern paper.  I laid the strips onto the dress, glued them down and trimmed off the excess.  For the center beading, I used some black Want2Scrap rhinestones.  The sentiment is from the Big Day Essentials stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  The dress didn't look quite right adhered directly to the card front, so I popped it up with foam tape, to give the card a little more dimension.
