Below are two cards that I made using the Cheery Lynn Chicken Wire die. After cutting the die on a lavender card stock for my first card, all the hexagon shaped pieces stayed on the cutting plate as I pulled off the die cut. I figured, "why not use those pieces to make a second card", and I did.
This is the first card:
I mounted the Chicken Wire die onto a piece of designer paper and cut the Floral Bouquet flower with colors from the background paper. These have become my favorite two dies; the Chicken Wire and the Floral Bouquet Kit. I love the intricate detail to the Chicken Wire die which shows up even more when you use a piece of foil card stock with it like I did on my butterfly card.
To get the hexagon shaped pieces to stick to a piece of paper and not move around (even though I did lose a few), I rubbed a piece of double sided Scor-tape paper right onto the cutting plate, pressing down on the individual pieces so they'd stick. I then peeled off the adhesive from the cutting plate and sprinkled on some purple embossing powder and heated it to melt into the Scor-tape sheet.
The backing paper was still on this so I peeled that off and stuck the entire sticky sheet with the hexagons to a piece of purple glitter paper and began making the rest of the card.
I purposely left off any sentiments on my cards so I could use them as needed in the future.
These are the dies I used on my cards:
Cheery Lynn Chicken Wire FRM144, Cheery Lynn Floral Bouquet B777, Cheery Lynn Special Occasions B242 (bow and ribbons)
I'm entering the first card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes and Thursday's Show Us What You Are Working On.
