Creative Use of Stacking Dies + Giveaway

Hello again! Today I am sharing several ideas for getting new looks out of your basic stacking dies. This is an excellent way to stretch your supplies!

The techniques and tricks I used to get these new looks from stacking dies is very difficult to explain in text… so be sure to watch the video! I will just share the photos and products I used here.

My first cards feature the new Honey Bee Stitched Scallop Square Dies (SSS | HB). And to make the card a bit special, I used thick mulberry paper. (I like THIS and THIS set.) This paper is so lovely! The Honey Bee Congratulations Die Cut (SSS | HB) sentiment is made of vellum and black cardstock. With this card design, it looks like I used border dies… not square dies. And I have MANY left over pieces for additional quick cards.

Here is a card I made with the leftovers. Simple! Added a Honey Bee Hooray Dies (SSS | HB) sentiment, along with sequins and gems.

Oh! and all of the envelopes for today have a bit of stamping using the fabulous Honey Bee Angel Policy Stamp Set (SSS | HB).

Using the same Honey Bee Stitched Scallop Square Dies (SSS | HB), I created a couple of cards with regular cardstock. I like this unique design! I added a Honey Bee Hugs (SSS | HB) sentiment and flower sequins.

This one features a sentiment I love SO very much from the Honey Bee My Tribe Stamp Set (SSS | HB).

Next up… another card with the Honey Bee Stitched Scallop Square Dies (SSS | HB). In the video I show how to make the dies look bigger than they are! I finished the card with a Honey Bee Hello (SSS | HB) sentiment and Honey Bee Shaped Flower Sequins with gems in the center.

My next card again features the Honey Bee Stitched Scallop Square Dies (SSS | HB). It is bright and cheery! I added a Honey Bee Hello Die Cut (SSS | HB) and sentiment from the Honey Bee Angel Policy Stamp Set (SSS | HB). And I love those Honey Bee Be Mine Candy Hearts!

My last card using the Honey Bee Stitched Scallop Square Dies (SSS | HB) features leftover pieces from my cards above. I added a simple Honey Bee Love You (SSS | HB) greeting.

You can also use circle stacking dies creatively. Here I created a fun, scallop rainbow with the Honey Bee Stitched Scallop Circle Dies (SSS | HB). The cute sentiment is from the build-your-own-greeting Honey Bee Love Bug Stamp Set (SSS | HB).

Here is a fun example using the Honey Bee Double Stitched Square Dies (SSS | HB). Simple, yet unique… with a message from the Honey Bee Ham It Up Stamp Set (SSS | HB).

My last card is my favorite! It features the Honey Bee Hexagon Dies (SSS | HB) and Hugs Dies (SSS | HB). I will be making more of these!
