Christmas Layers Dies, Not just for Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I am sharing cards were created with the Christmas Layers Dies. These were paired with the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set … both of these items are retiring, and I’m taking a look back to share with you some cute cards in case these are on your retiring Wish List!

 

I wanted to show the different elements of the stamp set and dies to demonstrate how versatile this bundle is.

The first card is bursting with holiday flair and is decked out in gold.  The floral pattern really highlights the greeting and ties in the gold throughout the card so nicely. The Shades Spruce and Cherry Cobbler look so regal … You can use the Plaid Tidings Designer paper which is currently on our Clearance Rack!

Here is another sample that highlights the floral dies cuts … I love these, they actually look more like a metal embellishment than a die cut piece of cardstock!! They also used the die cut image to create a fun background on this card.

My second card is so different from the first in that we have created our own “Shimmer” paper by spritzing the beautiful Seaside Spray from our 2019 – 2021 In Color collection.  For a little more sparkle, the snowflakes are cut from the Sparkle Shimmer Paper! But wait … there is one more layer of sparkle when I added the Rhinestones to the snowflakes.

This card is just simply elegant and done with White and Silver … and yes, graced with a touch of glitter. Instead of die cutting the image and adhering it to the base as I did in the first card, I actually cut it out of the front and used it to impose a second layer to the card… stunning.

I have another samples the highlights the foliage die …

If you didn’t know these cards were from the same stamp set/dies … you might not know that they were!  Oh wait … I have one more project that can be created with these stunning dies.

Each of these cards/projects were done with the Christmas Layers Dies and the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. I have “one more” card sample for you below!!

Thanks for checking in with me today … meet you back here tomorrow.

Have some fun today!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared a parade of cards that I created using the Itty Bitty Christmas bundle, and from that bundle comes the Christmas Layers Dies which I will be using today to share a card that is an alternative to it’s Christmas theme.  Think Spring!  lol  We haven’t even had our first snow and I’m jumping right into spring!

I’ve turned this cute die cut pattern into a bouquet of flowers…. the centers are the Clear Faceted Gems and not only add dimension to the card, but some fun sparkle.   I’m using Calypso Coral along with the Bird Ballad Designer Series paper as my base and background. Super Simple.

To complete the card, I pulled out the Wonderful Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped my greeting using Calypso Coral onto Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Timeless Label punch to punch out the greeting … then I popped it up using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Just because a stamp set is sold during a specific time of the year … doesn’t mean you can’t use it for the rest of the year.  I enjoy thinking outside of the box when using my stamp sets and dies.  We’ve invested in this hobby so if I can help you get more usage out of your supplies, I have done my job.

Thank you for stopping back to check out my alternative card.

Have yourself an awesome day!
