New Pop Up Stages and Spring Tweets For Wednesday

DCP1008 Pop Up Stages Die Set

Our new birds from the Cling Spring Tweets Stamp Set are chirping to pop onto a spring project and with the January catalog release, we have products to develop that creative idea!

Cling Spring Tweets Stamp Set has lovely little birds who are ready to nest amongst flowering tree branches in oodles of different arrangements and layering them is easy with the coordinating shapes in the Spring Tweets Cutting Die Set. So easy you will want to make a flock of these little darlings.

Now, to make them pop just add any combination of platforms or columns from Pop Up Stages Die Set to your background layer and voila your project has a popping effect!

New Pop Up Stages and Spring Tweets!

maxresdefault

Our new Pop Up Die Set is setting the stage for some exciting pop ups in columns and platforms! Use Pop Up Stages with any type of stamped and die cut or hand trimmed shapes like images from Family Home, Pretty Poppies, and Spring Tweets stamp sets.

Pop Up Stages dies are so versatile as separate pieces you can use a single column die to make a flower bouquet pop off the background as on Debi Hammons beautiful card here.

Using two or more column dies will create varying depths for a fun scene. Add the tab die anywhere for a popping greeting!
