We just love how our design team has been using our My Star Metal Die this month on their projects, and today we wanted to share 5 different ways you can incorporate their techniques into your own projects!
- Create a shaker pocket | Meghann Andrew created a fun star-shaped window using the My Star Metal Die along with the Pocket, Frame and Flip Up Metal Die. Just by adding a piece of actetate across the window, sequins and dimensional adhesive, you can make a custom shaker pocket! How fun!
2. Use a star as a tab for a tag | Suzanna Lee certainly thought outside of the box when she created these full-sized tags in her Document December album using stars from our My Star Metal Die at the top of her tags, allowing them to peek outside of her vellum pockets. What a fabulous idea!
3. Create a starry mixed-media background | Katarina Prevendarova’s background using the My Star Metal Die cut from different mediums like cardstock and patterned paper, then painted and stamped with phrases from our My Star Stamp creates an amazing base for her winter photo! Using the metal die and stamp together creates so many different creative possibilities for your projects!
4. Add a starry wreath | We love this wreath of stars that Marsha Farris created on her traveler’s notebook spread cut from the Christmas Basics and Fa La La Paper Stacks, paired with the My Star Stamp. What an eye-catching design, and we love that she even added a star embellishment to her title, “joy!” If your Document December pages are not complete yet, consider trying this in your own album!
5. Back your star die cuts | We tend to use die cuts by adhering them to the page, but we love how Patricia Roebuck backed her die cuts not once, but twice using our Bright Polka Dot Paper Stack and Summer Fun Paper Stack. What a creative way to use those dies!
We love our newest die, and we hope you love creating with it, too! Share your projects using the My Star Metal Die with us using the #EllesStudio hashtag on Instagram, and in our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group!
