lil' inker designs blog hop day 2

This is my second post today - please scroll down for my There She Goes projects.

Wohoo, it's finally time for me to share one of the exciting new products being released by Lil' Inker Designs! Hopefully as part of the new release blog hop you've come from Julie's blog and if so you are right on track. If not make sure you start at the beginning at Laura's blog where you can also find out about the prizes on offer this week!

Well, how about I show you a little graphic for Lil' Inker Designs new die entitled "fringe flower".



This die is so much fun! First up let's have a look at what this die can do. Isn't this flower just gorgeous!


If you've been visiting me for a while you'll know that I do love to fancy up my gifts! And this die is perfect for the job. The die is 8.5 inches wide and 1.25 inches high with little cut lines all along it's width. I use a cuttlebug for my die cutting - love my little bug! I cut my piece from Papertrey Ink's  harvest gold felt - a lovely thick felt which produces a full bloom. I laid my die on the felt and roughly cut  around it. Then I used some scortape to adhere the die to the felt - don't want that felt moving about! I popped my felt/die sandwich on my cutting plates. As the die is 8.5 inches it doesn't cut in one go through the cuttlebug but it's so easy - I just ran the felt/die through my bug with as much between the plates as possible, then I simply pushed my felt/die sandwich in a bit further and ran it through again to cut the remaining end of the die.


At this point you simply fold the felt in half along the short edges - I used a piece of tape to hold it in place and then start rolling this beauty up from one end all the way along. Again I used a piece of tape to keep it in place as I rolled. Finally from the underside of the flower I pushed the center up slightly to give the petals room to fluff out. Click here for a tutorial that Laura put together.

Now it's time for you to hop along and next on the list is Teresa's blog! However, if you get lost on the way, here's a list of all the places to visit today.
