More Alphabet Dies + Giveaway!

Hello again.

As promised, I am back with a couple more cards using Memory Box alphabet dies. I can see these getting a lot of use in my future! Yesterday I used the Typewriter set. First up today? The Parker set. I think this is my favorite…

Again, I added some double-sided adhesive to white cardstock. I then die cut the letters. After I removed the other side of the release paper, I added the glitter and burnished it. Voila! I thought this would be fun for Audrey who just started her Freshman year here – new to our district. Yay! Love that shine…

HERE is the Parker die set. Swoon…

And, again I used the Stardust glitter (ultra fine with a vintage silver look) and chevron background stamp with Wet Cement ink. Oh, and those perfect little stars? From THIS border punch.

Next up? The Classic die set. I did this one a bit different. I first covered a rectangle of white cardstock with double-sided tape. I then cut apart the letters of the die itself. (This is really easy to do. There is only a thin piece of metal connecting each letter so you can use them together or cut them apart.) I arranged each letter on the adhesive piece and ran it through my machine. Easy! I then removed the letters (and will save them for a future card) and just used the negative space. After removing the release paper and adding back in the center of the letter “o,” I added the glitter. For dimension, I popped it up over some bright cardstock. I love the playful look of n0t-straight-at-all letters…

HERE is the Classic die set…

You can find all the alphabet dies sets HERE – including lowercase, uppercase and numbers. (I like all lowercase, so I just started with those.)

That background stamp is so unique, too – it is THIS one from Impression Obsession. (Can you tell I just re-discovered these great stamps? Having lots of fun playing with them.)


And since I love these dies so much, I decided to purchase a set to send to a lucky winner. I actually picked someone from the comments left on yesterday’s post. (I love doing surprise giveaways for folks kind enough to leave comments – I plan to do this more!) The winner isย  Winnie Dolderer! I will email you. ๐Ÿ™‚


Also… I have a bit of enabling for ya. Just some fun products to check out…
