Good morning everyone and happy first day of March! It's the beginning of the month so that means that there's a new challenge starting up over at the DRU Challenge blog. This week the theme is "Tag, You're It!"
I had so much fun using Elizabeth Craft Designs Macaron's, I ended up making a whole gift ensemble.
I started by making a few tags using Creative Expressions Stitched Craft Tag Dies. This is my favorite "go-to" set because it has many different sizes and shapes of tags with cute toppers.
I cut the ECD Macaron's out of colored cardstock and added a bit of coordinating Distress Inks around the edges of each outer die. For the frosting part, I ran the dies through my Xyron and added Elizabeth Craft Designs Silk Microfine Glitter, again in matching colors. The lovely cake stand is from Elizabeth Craft Designs Christmas Pudding set. Isn't it darling with the striped paper details?
The gable box is from Sizzix.
This set makes me think of sweet confections you might find in a darling pastry shoppe.
I also wanted to remind you that Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts. They have Marianne Designs dies in their store all the time!
They will ship to both the US and Canada. Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different. Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?! We'd love for you to visit by clicking on the links above or by clicking here.
Thanks for stopping by!
