Hi! I am back with a video sharing a fun way to layer intricate die cuts for lots of dimension. I am also part of a blog hop with giveaways!

I enjoy die cutting as much as I do stamping. Especially when I get to play with gorgeous, intricate dies like the ones I use today! These techniques are such fun and give lovely dimension.

For my first example, I layered up 3 green layers of leaves from the Simon Says Stamp Corbel Wreath Die. Be sure to watch the video for a trick on how to do this easily! This die is stunning.

In between the leaves, I added a rainbow of Lucy’s Cards Rainbow Jewels. The Simon Says Stamp Script Thanks Die Cut sentiment is covered with Wink of Stella Clear Shimmer and Mini Ranger Glossy Accents.

For my next example, i used the Simon Says Stamp Heart Sprinkle Wreath Die and colored the layered die cuts with my Copics. (Again – watch the video to see how this was done!)

And check out that dimension! The added white dots to the wreath with my Tonic Morning Dew Nuvo Drops.

The Simon Says Stamp Foral Burst Collage Die also works great with this layered die cut technique. I layered each of the flowers on this next card… but varied how many layers on each. The pink flower has 3 layers, the orange has 4, the yellow has 1, the green has 3, and the blue has 5.

I colored the layered die cuts once again with Wink of Stella Clear Shimmer and Mini Ranger Glossy Accents. I also added a cluster of Lucy’s Cards Rainbow Jewels to the centers.

Isn’t that Simon Says Stamp Thanks Script Die Cut classic? Love! I am so glad it comes with the word itself and it’s shadow.

For my last example, I used the Simon Says Stamp Heart Sprinkle Trail Die as a template for layered die cuts and lots of Lucy’s Cards Rainbow Jewels. This is SUCH fun in real life… I wish I could capture it in my photos!

And by the way, i used a matching Simon Says Stamp Metallic Envelope stamped with a Simon Says Stamp Envelope Greeting for each of my cards.
