Ornamental Love and a Top Dog Dies $50 GIVEAWAY!

Happy Monday, folks! I am quite happy to be getting back to routine, I must say! I hope your 2014 is off to a fabulous start! Today I am excited to share a new die company you may or may not yet be familiar with! I have a fun project here on my blog,one on their blog, and a giveaway, too! Woot! Woot!!!!

Top Dog Dies is a new online store that offers their own brand of wafer-thin and steel-rule dies, along with dies from brands you already know and trust, including My Favorite Things, Sizzix, Savvy Stamps and Cheery Lynn Designs. Top Dog Dies is also the leading U.S. retailer for Tattered Lace, a new line of intricate dies designed by U.K. designer Stephanie Weightman.

Ornamental Love

I created this fun, sparkly Valentine using the Ornaments and Tags #2 die set. I LOVE these dies! They cut really beautifully and the design is just gorgeous! I know ornaments are more traditionally used for Christmas, but I thought it worked so well with these fun Love stamps from Simon Says for a Valentine card. Of course, the glitter paper is pretty much fabulous, too. Just puttin' that out there.  That gorgeous white string is from May Arts and I love it with all of my heart.
