Here are the pieces of the die set above. You get the slip in base and 2 decorative pieces that both have the backround pieces for them to use as a shadow or as belly bands. The ends of them don't cut completely so they are fun to just cut out and wrap around something like what i did for my next project.

I hope that you have all had the chance to see Becca's newest addition to her Candlewick Sampler set that just came out and have also had the chance to maybe add a few to your collection. Today i have a few more ideas to share for a little more inspiration with the new rectangles die set.
As we pick from the newest dies on the market, we often find that sometimes the best dies are the ones that you can use in simple ways and get the most milage from. The newest candlewick dies each have a beautiful raised candlewick design pattern that gives you a rather an amazing result with very little effort. And wow you really have to love that.
For my card i used the 2 largest sizes of the die and 2 shades of pink patterned paper to create a subtle shadow effect and really make the top piece pop more. These 2 pieces i layered over light ivory cardstock so that the details of the die would stand out more and used 3D foam dots to separate the layers.
I stamped the sentiment with a subtle brown ink and used a Penny Black stamp set from my stash. And I kept it simple and used a piece of silk ribbon across the base and added a sweet bow at the side with a button that matches the ink that i chose for the sentiment. And to finish it i just added a few small pearls on the top piece to make it just a little bit fancier. So simple ... yet so pretty!
This is what the die set looks like. You can make all the shapes that you see above and the base pieces to go under them or to create a back round.
If you would love to see all the new dies you can check the link here
And i also created this pretty gift box using the same die and added the new Candlewick Petticoats die for the front of it. I love to make fancy boxes to put in little gifts and gift cards and this was really fun and easy to make using some great dotted paper and white cardstock to cut the dies from.
And one last very important thing for our APG team..... We have a brand new Guest Designer and she is super talented. Her name is Elena Ivanova-Dineva and she is creating lots of magical things for us this month with Becca's dies so be sure and stop by her blog this month for some amazing inspiration.... https://elenashandmadecards.blogspot.com/
That's all for today but i hope to see you back soon!

Well with all these new Candlewick dies ready to use i had to see if i could come up with a card to use more than one and i think i did pretty good. So I found some simple card stock that matched and i used the Circle, the Oval and the new Doily Border to layer up a pretty Thank you card for a friend.
I really adore this border and it is going to be so fun to create with. I also used it for a cute Halloween basket and the handles just a few weeks back so how fun would it be to use for a wedding or a baby shower favors and little baskets. There are so many fun ideas....
And here is another example of just using the new border die to cut a sweet border into the bottom of your card. These would be wonderful to make up for gift sets and maybe make them with different papers and sentiments on them. These papers are from Prima and give you an idea of what printed papers will look like with this gorgeous new die.
Thank you so much for stopping by for my share today!!

Today i have a share with one of my favorite new dies from Becca Feeken's new Candlewick Collection called "Doily Round Etched Die". Since fall is in the air i decided to create my card with those gorgeous fall colors that you see everywhere in the trees and just a few pumpkins because those are my favorites.
As you can see below you get 3 pieces in this set and i used the larger solid base to start my card with the dies and then i added another one with the beautiful cut die that goes over it. The papers are slightly mottled in color so I think it gave it a more rustic look and i really like that. Besides it's always fun to try other things with your papers and see what happens.
And to finish i added some ribbons and a button and just a few matching pearls around the outside to make those tiny little Candlewick dots really pop.
I made a few more cards and projects with this die so be sure and check back all month for more inspiration in using these gorgeous new dies.
Have a wonderful and crafty week... Teresa
