I have a couple of projects to share with you today using the Die-namics Let’s Toast set.

For my first card I used the bottle tag included in the die set and combined it with the à la modes An Apple for Teacher stamp set to create a thank you gift for a teacher.

The tag in this set can be used for all sorts of gift ideas that involve a bottle. For my teacher gift, I filled a bottle with jelly babies. I thought these could represent the children in the class and the teacher can either eat them herself or share. But you could fill a bottle with things like bath salts, chocolate, home made sauces etc and decorate the tag.

For my second project I used the Let’s Toast Die-namics and Stamp set to create a tag for a wine bottle to give as a gift to a hostess.

I used the Die-namics Circle Stax 1 die and the Die-namics Open Scallop Doily DUO for my sentiment. I also added a couple of wine glasses using  Fossil Cardstock. The border at the bottom of the tag was created using the Die-namics Chevron Stripes die, I have layered the thin green chevron over the wide fossil chevron.

  9. Thanks for showing the gift tag combined with the ALM teacher stamp... that really opened my eyes to a whole new range of uses for that already versatile Die-namic & Stamp set! :)
