3 of my favorite ways to use word dies


I love how versatile word and alphabet dies are! Today I'm sharing 3 of my favorite ways to use word dies with Waffle Flower's Oversized Hello.

Hopefully you are joining our blog hop today and are arriving from Michele's marvelous blog! (And you can find the full hop list HERE.)
One of the ways I use die cut words most often is stacked up & glossy! I cut 3 words, adhere together with a glue pen and then add Glossy Accents on the top. For this card, I used skinny purple tape to mask off a rectangle and then ink blended the background. I couldn't resist adding one of my favorite flower stamps on top with a little faux splatter made with Copic markers.


I also love to use the negative die cut space to make a shaker window! For this one, I just did a little ink blending on my card front underneath the shaker window.

And finally, I love the smooth look of inlaid die cuts too! Plus the flat design is great for mailing!
