Bloggers Challenge - Tempting Templates

Another Friday, another Bloggers Challenge. This weeks challenge is to use Die Cuts or Templates on your projects. I've got two projects to show you today - one with Die Cuts and one with the Sizzix Box #2 Template.

I used the Kind Thoughts Flourish (small) and the Wet Stencil Technique (April TJNL) to create the backgrounds on both my projects.

On my card I also used the Butterfly Die to cut my butterflies from the Parisian Breeze DSP, added some silver brads and adhered to the card with dimensionals.



I created a Test Tube Holder with the Sizzix Box (you can see one I previously created here). These boxes aren't really that big, but I thought putting different Cappuccino Mixes in the test tubes worked out great.

Details:
Stamps - Dreams Du Jour, Friends 24-7
Ink - Black, Chocolate Chip
Card Stock - Chocolate Chip, Parisian Breeze, Baja Breeze
Other - Big Shot, Sizzix Box #2, Butterfly Die, 3/4" Circle Punch, 1/4" Circle Punch, Kind Thoughts Flourish, WC Crayons, Brads, Dimensionals, Test Tubes, Cappuccino

Be sure to stop by and visit the other Bloggers Challenge Players, I'm sure you'll be inspired by their creations!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!
