Top Dog Dies- Guest Designer!!

Good Morning!! Today I'm thrilled to be guesting over at Top Dog Dies!!

This is a long post as I was sent several dies and had a blast playing!

FYI: Top Dog Dies is a new online store that offers their own brand of wafer-thin and steel-rule dies, along with dies from brands you already know, including Little B, Tattered Lace, My Favorite Things, Impression Obsession, Little B and other top brands.

I had the pleasure of receiving several dies from the latest release. Today- I am showing you several projects I made.

First up- the adorable new DRAGON die and...

I have to admit when I first saw this die... I was thinking along the lines of a Birthday card, wouldn't that be wonderful!! BUT, as soon as I die cut the dragon with sparkly green paper, my mind shifted to Halloween!!

Isn't he fantastic- well, it could be a she- fantastic too!! This die has some fabulous detail and is perfect for a Halloween card.

Next up is an invitation to a Halloween party. How fun, right!!

 It was created like a "note" card so that you can turn it around and add all the details... where, when etc.

Two more projects using the new dies from the recent release...the images are sweeeet!!

First up is Winston (my daughter's dog) and that is not the official name for this die but, immediately what I thought of- Oh, Winston is an older dog but, so refined, reticent, and tolerant of us "humans" and he two other dogs in the household!!!

Then... there's Bella- she's also a mixed breed but, eeeks the poodle is there- "in charge, sassy, everyone do as I say"...

Made a couple treat bag tags for their stockings this year using the TDD Dog Days #2 die set. Used DCWV glitter paper and a combination of PTI and MFT dies for the tags. The bottom layer was embossed using the Modern Mosaic A2 Mat die... did you know that you can emboss with wafer thin dies? Here's a close up so you can see the detail in the die.

Oh and by the way... these dies cut like buttah!! Head on over to Top Dog Dies.... browse around... I'm know you'll see something you need :)

Many thanks to TDD for inviting me!! I had a blast creating with these dies!!

Absolutely adorable cards what you did with that dragon die! I never thought of Halloween when I saw the dragon, but what a good idea! Congrats on being a guest designer for Top Dog!
