Please continue to visit our blog this week for some fun and awesome projects from our talented Creative Team and myself. Today we have 3 more new stand-alone dies to showcase! If you missed our Day 1 Intro + GIVEAWAY, make sure you click HERE for chances to win!
First we have the Twist-N-Pop Surprise stand-alone die! This set is super versatile and is perfect for creating greeting cards for various occasions. This set comes with a polaroid frame and a backing panel of the same size. The width of these match perfectly to the centre tab on the die-cut base. The frame pop-ups as you twist on one side of the base.
Gladys made a colorful card using this Twist-N-Pop Surprise stand-alone die. I love how she created these beach scenes! She decorated both sides of her pop-up piece using two polaroid frames and same adorable images from the Aloha Hawaii stamps set! How fun are these punny sentiments! She then cut out some bright patterned paper with the decorative panel die cut. The base of the card was cut with our new Vintage Beetle cardstock.
The best thing about this card is that it folds flat for mailing and it fits into a 6 x 6″ square envelope! The recipient will open up the card by flipping it on one side as centre piece pops up!
Another great thing about this die set is that this pop-up mechanism will work with any centre piece that you want to add to the card. You can therefore interchange the polaroid frame with another element, such as the I Made You A Cake stand-alone die to create a one of a kind birthday surprise! That’s what I did the example below.
II used Fashion Week to cut out my card base. I made two exact same 2-tier birthday cakes and adhere them on each side of the centre tab of the base. I then stamped out two sentiment from the It’s Your Day stamp set onto the sentiment tab die-cut pieces.
For my second card, I used the polaroid frames and created two different scenes using Aloha Hawaii stamps set & coordinating dies. I used Apple Green cardstock for my decorative panels. Watch my step-by-step tutorial over on our YouTube Channel!
The last product we want to showcase today is called the Gingerbread Man Gift Display! I really adore this die cut as it gives you so many options! This set includes not only the dies you need to create the most adorable gingerbread man, it also has all the accessory die cuts necessary to further turn it into earrings or necklace holder display, or an EOS lip balm holder. It even includes a mini pocket die cut!
In my first example, I turned the cute gingerebread man into an EOS lip balm holder. The circular die in the set easily makes it a perfect fit!
For my second gingerbread man, I used the slit die cut to create a display holder for a necklace. I also glued the mini pocket onto the back of the gingerbread man to help store the necklace.
In my last example, I used the customized double U-shaped die cut and turned my gingerbread man into a pair of earrings display card! This set is super fun and will turn a simple gift into something handmade-special while bringing a smile to the recipient’s face!
That concludes our inspirations for today! I truly hope you’ve enjoyed today’s showcase of stand-alone dies, Twist-N-Pop, I Made You A Cake and Gingerbread Man Gift Display!
