Tia's Trios: Yes, it is worth the money to buy the dies! Dies are a non-consumable in your craft stash. Meaning, they will never run out! There are so many different uses for dies and let's face it, they are a time saver! If you're starting our or money is tight-fussy cut!!! There is no shame in no owning the latest mega-machine out there. But as you build your studio arsenal it pays to have layering/nesting dies, background dies and dies for your stamped images.
Riley and Company- Veggie Lane-Pumpkin Palace;
Happy Halloween-Candy Corn Border Die Set ;
I Love Pumpkins- I Love Pumpkins Die Set
Echo Park-Witches & Wizards design paper background, I fussy cut out my stamped Pumpkin after coloring it with COPICS. I die cut a circle for the moon and added features with COPICS, the adhered my die-cut sentiments.
Several stamp companies have dies to create 'pop-boxes', but you can also find template directions on YouTube.
After die cutting the 'spooky fence', I wrapped it around the box. Then cut apart the 'Haunted Village' and place a house on each flap. I stamped 3 witches and inked them differently. I attached one witch to the sentiment label and the other two were added to acetate strips. If you want to hide your images when the box is closed, be aware of placement so images remain 'with-in" the box. I used mine for decoration, so was not concerned with images appearing outside of the box when closed.
