Top Dog Dies July Release Preview

Hello friends!! Today, Top Dog Dies is starting sneak peeking projects for our upcoming release, take note of the day: July 29th!! These new dies are amazing, you are going to love them all.

I have 2 projects for you today, showcasing some of them, so let's get started.

Relax: I have to confess I d not drink, but once in a while I get a Virgin PiƱa Colada, so delicious and refreshing. I think these dies are going to be your favorite for special occasions, friends get together, or just chill out!
My card is super simple. I used 3 new dies here: The cocktails die, the label die and the banners.
The cocktails glasses were die-cut in white cardstock and colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. I have some crushed glass (from many years ago) and added that to the glass tops.
The bottom banner was scored about 1/8" from each side of the word and then another 1/8" to fold it and create the new banner look.

Dies used here:

Corset: A lot of great ideas to use this die! I went a little bit Vintage. For this card, I die-cut the corset twice, 1 in red and 1 in ivory, then I removed the cut pieces from the middle and bottom are, and added the ivory piece behind it to create a little bit of contrast. Then took a piece of patterned paper and added the banners in ivory to each corner and added zig zag stitches. Final touches were stitches on the patterned paper, paper flowers and ribbon.

** I think this corset die can be used both ways**

Here are the dies I used:

Also, 2 more dies coming in this month's release, I will show you  more projects soon.
