Bow dies

Recent shopping trip to Mikes I found two silver shimmer card stocks I liked. I picked up a thinner one and a thicker one to use for bow dies for Valentine projects. I have the small, medium, and large bow die sets from Pink and Main and they have turned into my favorite "go to" bow dies.

Earlier this week I received an email from Pink and Main about new products they were releasing and they now have an extra large bow die set. I ordered that the day I got the email and it arrived yesterday. Here is a photo of the Pink and Main bow dies and the bows I made using the thinner and thicker sliver shimmer card stocks:

Here is a photo of the bows to show the sizes:

The new larger bow die set makes a bow that will work well on gift bags and larger projects. With the thicker silver shimmer card stock these dies cut well and the stitching on the die shows on the card stock:

I also picked up red heart crystals from my last shopping trip to Hobby Lobby so I will add those to the center of the bows for Valentine's Day.  IRL  these silver shimmer card stocks are very sparkly and the weight of the card stocks give the bows a nice shape.

My PIC (stamping Partner In Crime) and I are going to the SSAT stamp show in Columbia, SC in two weeks and we will be shopping the Pink and Main booth for their other new products. Always fun to shop at the stamp shows and see all the card/project display boards and product lines. TFL
