For the LOVE of Nikki Sivils' Die Cut Papers...

Hello everyone, Delaina here once again ...I just have to say that these die cut papers are one of my favorite parts of Nikki's collections. It seems I have used one with just about every creation I have made since getting my DT spot here. So, yes, I LOVE them very much!!!

Here I used Flaming Butterfly and I cut about 1/4 of the die cut piece off to achieve this look. I added scalloped stitching to the straight side for a little balance.

This one I created using Willow Bee. I cut the center of the die cut paper away and slid it to the bottom left to expose the black background and added hand sewn zig zag stitching.
Here we have Dan the Record Man. I cut away the center of the die cut paper and replaced it with a circle of white cardstock...over the top stitching here but I like the finished look.
This is Will He B the 1. This happens to be one of my favorite lines to date from Nikki. I again removed the center of the die cut paper and cut about 1/4 of it off and just added to the other side of the background paper.
I hope that these LOs have encouraged you to try a few different die cut paper method. You can achieve so many looks from the same shape just by cutting and adjusting it. Ok, now I am back to my workroom to pull out some more Nikki Sivil's goodies...I have encouraged myself, I guess...LOL!!!
Have a SCRAPPY GooD Day!!!
