I think I have decided to try and continue my "OK You Just HAD To Have It, Now USE IT!" Challenge
Today I used two new dies:
- paper that was collecting dust (for at least two years)
and my new 6" Scor Tape
OH! and some glitter like this only gold:
Gotta say I LOVE THE TAPE!!! So much so that I ordered the 1/8" and 1/4" today. I thought I could just cut strips from the 6" wide but that isn't all that easy...forget cutting a good straight line!
OK, so I wanted to test using intricate dies and glitter with the tape so this is what I did:
1. I took a 2" strip of tape and covered one side of it with the glitter, making it a piece of glitter tape.
2. Cut the butterfly from that strip of just tape w/ backing.
- problem, the die cuts super fine lines (which was part of the test for me)...unfortunately the backing paper came off and left just the glue/glitter part in the die so I had to pull it off and of course it stretched ...bad. I think it would have been fine if I'd used a more solid die, like a solid butterfly, or heart, or something... but I still wanted to use what I had cut so I stuck it to the back of my phone:
I figure this will be a good test of its durability because I have used my phone and rubbed on it all day and that glitter is on there good!
3 - I still wanted a glitter butterfly for a card so this time I stuck some of the glittered tape down onto a piece of scrap card stock and cut it out along with the word:
It is hard to tell from the picture but both the butterfly and the "thanks" are perfect, solid glitter. So pretty. One thing that I was worried about was that the glue would gug up my die, but not at all, it came out without leaving anything behind. Test was a success.
