Thin Cuts Blog Hop

Welcome to the Thin Cuts Blog Hop. We're focusing on the plethora of Thin Cuts (aka Metal Die Cuts) just released in September. 

A little blog hop business before we get to my cards. You should have come from Darlys's blog, but don't worry if you started here. The hop is a circle, so just keep going until you get back to where you started. If you get lost along the way, head over to Melinda's blog for a full list of participants. 

I love tags on cards, so I'm choosing to feature the Buildable Tags Thin Cuts along with a few others for good measure, like this one...

Here and in the next card, I added half of the Love You Thin Cut. I used the Pumpkin Spice Paper Collection, Harbour and White Daisy cardstock, and a little embossing. I selectively stamped just "fall" from one of the sentiments in the We Love Fall set. 

This next card is almost identical, I just switched around the papers and dressed it up a bit.

The background uses another Thin Cut that, although not featured in any catalogs now, is still available: Stitched Lattice Background. The die is just shy of the full 5.5inches high, so I trimmed my card base by 1/8 inch in height and to only 3 inches wide. I also added the Pumpkin Spice Wood Stickers as an embellishment. 

True confession time. My first attempt at this idea turned out like this----> 

I contacted my dear friend, Katy Taylor, and said, "Why don't I like this?" She suggested what turned into the first card.

To create the second card, I cut away the entire background of this card and kept just the tag.

Sometimes your best option is junking what isn't working. It's just paper, people. I repeat that as often as I need. And it's always good to have crafty friends who will tell you exactly what's wrong with your work.
For this next card, I added  a couple of small stamp sets, North Pole Post and Santa's Airmail. 

I also used the Sept-Oct Mix In paper, Candy Apple cardstock, and the Stitched Rectangle and Tags and Tabs Thin Cuts.

All of the above tags had Mink Twine threaded through them. It's also not featured in any catalogs, but it's still available for purchase.

And for my final card, I added the Layered Flowers Thin Cuts and used the As You Grow paper.

This card also includes Gold Loose Sequins, Gold Embroidery Thread, and cardstock colors in Harbour, Shortbread, Rosemary, and White Daisy.
