So today we are chatting it up with the newest WTG stamp by MFT.  The set is called LET'S CHAT.  I love how large this image is....nice and big and easy to paper piece.  The other cool thing about this set....there are two  super cool speech bubble Die-namics that work with the sentiments in this set.  They are called CHAT BUBBLES.



Here's my card.  I have been enjoying some of my older papers,  well,not that old, but maybe I should say, my neglected papers, while I am waiting for all the NEW from CHA...this one is by Authentique. 
There's also a strip of the new MONARCH BORDER Die-namics on this card.  It's the same design as last month's Jumbo Monarch Die-namics, just a little bit smaller.  Gotta LOVE having options for just the right project.

I also wanted to share with you a trick I used to get more milage out of the new CHAT BUBBLES DIE-NAMICS.   It's kind of like my extended banner trick, but this way you can shorten the bubbles.  AND it's easy....let me show you.


  • Here are the two dies side by side so you can see the two sizes.


  • Run them through your die cut machine to cut the full sizes.  



  • Slide the cut pieces down into the die (as far as you need to, to cut the desired length you are looking for. Make sure the edges are still inside the die


  • Here are what the pieces look like after you run them through the die cut machine. 



  • AND....Here's a comparison shot of the shortened cut pieces. This trick is so easy and will ADD so much versatility to this Die-namics.


The length of the full size Die-namic was a bit long for my sentiment, and it hung over the edge of my card. So I used this trick to shorten the  CHAT BUBBLE DIE-NAMICS. 





Here's a look at my card again.....and I did up the inside.

 I REALLY like this quote from the LET'S CHAT  stamp set.  I layered it up on WELL WORN GREETINGS DIE-NAMICS.

Kim's Blog has the Teaser Line Up....Hop on over there to see who's showing off the goods today.
