New 3D Shadow Boxes and Altered Fairy Scraps for CHA

Our talented DT leader Vicki Chrisman came up with a fantastic idea for two 3D shadow box cards and Crafty Secrets has teamed up with AccuCut to release both of Vicki's dies at the upcoming CHA show! Each of the dies is designed to work great with Crafty Secret's new Altered Fairy Scraps. Today is our Design Team Preview to show you these versatile dies and the new Fairy scraps!

Available in a portrait or landscape style, each card has a center shadow box style "stage" to showcase a multitude of creative themes and styles. You can create photos, keepsakes, 3D cards, shaker cards, altered art and dioramas! Both dies will be available from AccuCut and discounted 25% off for orders placed at the CHA Show. Crafty Secrets will also be selling kits, with or without the Fairy Scraps included.

You can ask your favorite store to order these dies and most stores will let you use their dies if you by the paper you want to cut from them. AccuCut sells to a variety of retail stores, teachers, kit clubs, and consumers. They will be available to order online in Feb.

I pieced 4 of the shadow dies together to create a hanging lantern! I used the Crafty Secret's Wildflower set. I stamped on vellum with Staz On and embossed using one of my Sizzix dies to "frame" the image. I colored the back of the vellum with my Copics. I airbrushed the back as well to give it a bit of color. I dressed up each of the panels with rhinestones. I put the 4 panels together with the sticky red tape. I punched holes in the corners and threaded my satin ribbon through. I used a 7 Gypsies hanging "thingy" for the top of the lantern. I also created a false bottom so I could put a tea light in it.

The inside.............. : )


Here it is all lit up..........
Love how it looks at night.......so soft and pretty........


I also created a 3D shadow box using the new Fairy Scraps. I used lots of glitter and lace.....


Love the depth here........

The design team has created such beautiful projects!! Head on over to check them out! You will SWOON!!!
