Hi crafty friends and welcome to day three of reveals for the July release at Papertrey Ink! New items will be available on the 21st at 10pm ET so get your wish list ready! Today, we are introducing you to Crafting Queen stamps and dies + Cover Plate: Flutter Frame die + Cover Plate: Flutter dies + Tag-Its Mini stamps and dies.
While I love the butterfly frame die, I'm most excited about the tiny tags that are being released! So often, my card front is pretty filled up and there doesn't seem to be room for a sentiment. These mini tags are so easy to tuck in and not take up much real estate!
The card base was created by using a dry embossing folder then swiping a Versamark pad over the panel and adding silver embossing powder. I added vellum behind the small center frame.
I find it easiest to adhere the cover plate die by spraying with Elmer's Craft Bond spray adhesive (do it in a protected area like a box or the trash can).

The background panel was color blended with distress inks then splattered with water. This beautiful cover plate die was adhered by spraying with Elmer's Craft Bond spray adhesive.
The heart was popped up with foam tape and I thought the sentiment (from the Crafting Queen set) would be perfect to gift someone with some homemade sweets!

Last but not least, I want to share a small basket vignette created with the Crafting Queen set. I bought this basket at Michael's many months ago thinking I would eventually find a use for it. I love creating decor for my craft room and this was a fun project! The "junk bow" included some tape measure ribbon and the trio of "real" buttons has been in my stash forever. I made a feminine version of the Baseball T die and elevated it over a small 1/2" high box.
That's a wrap for today! Come back tomorrow for the final day of reveals! ~Wanda
