Die Cuts

Hello and welcome. Today I wanted to talk about die cuts. If you are not a keen stamper, you can still create beautiful cards and other projects with just dies. Stampin' Up! has quite an extensive range of dies, so there is sure to be something you can use that is perfect for your current project.

I am in love with our new Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine and am always wanting to use it. It is even my product of the week. So the theme of todays post was one I eagerly wanted to share with you.

The card I made for today has no stamping at all on it. And I absolutely loved creating it. Now I just need someone I know to have a baby so I can use it.....

Isn't is so pretty. You can't really go wrong with such beautiful colours of Pool Party and Blushing Bride. So delicate. Besides being obsessed with the new die cutting machine, I am also obsessed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder. It just adds that little extra to the background without being overwhelming.

Let's talk dies, after all that's what this post is all about. Today I have used the wonderful Wreath Builder Dies. Now if you are a long time follower of mine, you will know my obsession with wreaths. I will make one out of just about any stamp, punch and die. That can prove challenging sometimes, but thanks to Stampin' Up! the challenge has been removed with this amazing die set.

I love that this is a very versatile set. You can use it for just about any occassion. It is suitable for all ages and genders. I absolutely love it. Of course, there is a matching stamp set too if you want to stamp on your projects as well.

When you buy them together as a bundle you save 10%. Everyone loves a discount!

Did you notice the die cut words on my card. I used the amazing Well Written dies for them. Every crafter needs at least one set of word dies in their stash, and these ones are fantastic!

Did you notice that they were raised? I didn't want them looking lost and lower than the raised flowers, so I used our new Foam Adhesive Sheets. Just peel off the top layer of protective paper from the foam sheet. Stick on your card stock. Then place your die on top and run through your die cutting machine as normal. Remove the die and normally the die cut comes away with it and has the foam on it too. Simply stick the raised die to your project. No more trying to cut fiddly little bits of dimensionals!

Why not challenge yourself to create a card just using die cuts. I would love to see what you make. You can share it in my facebook group here.

Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
