Faux Half & Half
Thanks to Michelle at Iamderby for this great idea.
She is a fellow PTI devotee and her card caught my eye. Not only for the beautiful colors but I noticed the strip of Ripe Avocado along the left side of her card. She mentioned that she had cut it with a Spellbinders die. It looked a lot like a brilliant new concept that Nicole of PTI came out with last month. I really like the idea of these stamps and dies but since I am on a pretty strict budget I can't always have everything I want.
Well after seeing Michele's card and exchaning a note with her, I decided to give it a try.
Here are the strips I cut along with the associated Spellbinders I used.

You can see on the Labels 9 strips I got two different looks just by turning the die.

First I laid the die over the paper to measure the width of the strip. Once I had my strip cut I tucked into the die and taped it with removable tape. It took a little bit of time to get the hang of it but once I did, I was on a roll. I don't have a lot of Spellbinders but was impressed with the possibilities using the dies I do have.
I will show you some projects using the strips soon.
Thanks for visiting and thanks again Michelle.
See you soon,
