New TH Die Cuts, Used in Cuttlebug!

Happy Monday! I had some time to finally do a bit of creating last night. It feels like it's been awhile. I need a couple more birthday cards for the end of the month. I used the beautiful Hero Arts Hydrangea stamp for this one. I seem to always reach for it when I need something pretty! I actually stamped it using markers, then colored it in with Copics. I couldn't resist adding some Diamond Stickles. The die cuts on the side are the new ones, called Brackets, from Tim Holtz. I bought it hoping to use it in my Cuttlebug.....and it worked!! Below my card are some pictures to show how I did it, in case anyone is interested. I love that I can use these dies for the Sizzix, in the Cuttlebug!






No white spacer needed. Just use the B plate first.





Next, place your paper on top of the B plate.



Then place the Tim Holtz die on top of your paper, and the other B plate on top of that. Roll it right through and you've got a beautiful die cut! I cut mine shorter than the actual die, to fit my card. Love it!!




Make it a good day! And thanks to all who visit and leave comments! :)

Awesome card and thanks for the tutorial on using the TH dies. I've got the birdcage and it was a bit of trial and error to get it through. Did the same sandwich as you in the end. Great to be able to use them in the CB

Gorgeous card Barb! Your sparkly hydrangea looks wonderful! Thanks for the instructions on using the TH die. They look so thick so I wasn't sure if they'd go through the Cuttlebug - may need to do some TH shopping soon!
