Favourite New Product to "Die" for

Today the Designers from the DCC (Designer Crafts Connection)  are participating in a fun Blog Hop where we show and tell about our favourite new products.  Most months we are given sample products by various manufacturers and asked to make projects that showcase those products.  This month, we are switching things up a bit and are showing you what our personal new favourites are.




My new favourite product is the New Steel Cut dies from Spell Binders. They are Designed by Seth Apter, fellow CHA Designer and New York Artist.  These new dies are different from so many of the dies already on the market, as they allow you to make Mixed Media style embellishments for your making pleasure.

Here is a little something I made:



Being a Mixed Media Artist I am always on the look out for anything that catches my eye, that is a little bit different, even worn or vintage.  Now, with these dies I can make my very own worn looking pieces for  my mixed media making.


One of the fun things to do with die cuts is to stack and glue several of them to make substantial elements that weigh very little, and can be glued to a canvas or any substrate.

Here I show you how I cut some Drips out of chipboard that I glued together, and painted.


There is a whole collection of these wonderful Mixed Media style Dies available, I highly recommend them if you love to make mixed media.


Thank you for stopping by.
