Today we’re using die cuts for a WOW factor on Greeting Cards. I think you’re gonna fall in love with this as I have.

Butterflies and Gingham….oh my…..IS IT SPRING YET?  I had so much fun playing with all the different colors in the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and coming up with butterfly color combinations to coordinate.  The dies are marvelous!!!!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!!!  Today’s video will show you how using die cuts for a WOW factor to make spring butterfly cards is the perfect formula for this bundle!

It’s that time of the month again…the International Design Team DESIGN IT WITH DESIGNER SERIES PAPER Blog hop!  We are all sharing fun projects using the same Designer Series Paper (DSP) so make sure to hop around the world and see what the others have made. Our paper to feature this month was the GINGHAM GALA 6″ x 6″ pack.

If you live in the Unites States and you’d like to place an order for this gorgeous paper, or anything else, I truly appreciate your business.  Make sure to check out the bottom of my post for ordering information and my rewards program–FREE GIFTS FOR YOU!

Using Die Cuts for a WOW Factor on Greeting Cards

Blog Hop 

There are links at the bottom of this post to all the other blogs!  And please–leave a comment on each, we really do love to hear what you think about our card ideas and projects!  And then, if you are from the United States, make sure to come back here to place your order for this fun paper, and anything else you may need.

 

Tips For Using Detailed Dies in Big Shot

I absolutely love the colors of these papers, as well as the large and small gingham on the different sides. Today’s video shows all 5 of my cards, gives tips for each of them, as well as shows the inside. All stamping was done using the Beauty Abounds stamp set.  The stamp set and thinlits bundle together so you can save 10% when you purchase them together.

I really focused a lot in the video showing you lots of tips for using the Detailed Dies in the Big Shot!
