Today is my day to post a Project of the Week over on The House That Stamps Built blog. Pierced dies are really popular right now and I'd love to have them ALL!! But, if you're like me and can't spend all that money, I'm going to show you how you can get the look with dies you already own.
What you will need:
Dies (they need to be open on the inside like the ones I used from Spellbinders)
A piercing tool (I used my multi tool from Spellbinders, but I also have a regular piercing tool. You could probably also use a straight pin)
Some kind of mat to protect your work surface
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Strawberries" and "Smile"
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large", Classic Ovals, large" and "Standard Scalloped Ovals, large"
