Sewing Room Die Cut/Distress Stains

Wow, 3 posts in one week that is a record for me!! Wish I could do that more often!!

When we went on our scrapbooking weekend we stopped off at the scrapbooking store before we headed out (of course) as if we needed anymore product but it is always fun to have something new to work with! They had a couple of Tim's new die cuts in, Oh My Goodness I think I was actually shaking when I got his new Sewing Room die cut in my grubby little hands!! lol
I also had ordered the new Distress Stains and they came in the mail Thurs. so yesterday I finally had a chance to play with the die cut & stains. Love, love, love those stains, can't wait to try it on a bigger project, they will be awesome for that!!

The picture isn't the best but here is the tag I made. I used the die cut on grunge board, then cut just the dress part out of sticky back canvas. I used peeled paint distress stain for the background on the tag, and wild honey for the dress. I had to dress it up a little and used Tim's ribbon on the bottom of the dress, I used glossy accents on the button. I put twine around the spool piece for thread which was a little thick, will have to look for something thinner for the next one. I also stamped on the background with Tim's Visual Artistry small clear stamps, which are really cool! Absolutely love the Sewing Room die cut and the Distress Stains are to die for!! Lot's of fun!!

Have a good weekend everyone!!


  1. Isn't it fun playing with new stuff? lol! This is a great tag, Donna, good use of that die!

  2. Wow! Love this can't wait to buy this one and play...

  3. Gorgeous! I want that die so bad! I wonder if upholstery thread would be good vs. the twine? It's thick enough to stand out, but thin enough to wrap easily and lay flat.

  4. That looks beautiful! Love the trim and the necklace on the dressform. Great tag!

  5. I love this. Can't wait until I get mine - did a preorder... waiting...

  6. This turned out so cute! I can't wait to get that die; well several of them. LOL I love this one though!
