MCT Try Something New Tuesday

It's Try Something New Tuesday with My Creative Time, and I tried a new technique today to make a word die pop!  I diecut a rainbow of cardstock strips, using one of the wave dies from You're a Great Catch. Then, as you can see in my picture below, I completely covered a square of printer paper with my Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive and lay the strips on it.  Once they were all secure, I ran this through my Vagabond with the 3 1/2" square die from Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out.  Then I ran it through the Vagabond again with the "hello" die from Speech Bubble Sentiments.  I was sure to save all of the little pieces that came out of the letters.  I stamped "there" from Speech Bubble Sentiments onto the rainbow piece and then adhered it to a 4" square card base, adding the little pieces from the insides of the letters (and now I have a really pretty rainbow "hello" diecut to use on another card).  I finished the card off with a few silver sequins.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and rest of the design team have for you today!
