FCD presents DIE-normous FUN!

It's time for another FireCracker Designs by Pamela blog hop! Woohoo! This month we're telling you about a cool little item over on Pamela's site that you may not have ever noticed - DIE CUTS!! I actually saw that on there a while back and didn't think much of it - I thought it was just die cuts to match the stamps, but I'm not really much of a die cut person (like the old-school ones that used to be the ONLY scrapbook embellishment beyond plain old stickers, until Jolee's came along and changed everything!) (or at least that was the first big change at my LSS) ... anyway... the die cuts that Pamela carries COMPLETELY ROCK!! Yes, they do match her stamps - but you use them to stamp ON! I am a BIG fan of cutting out my stamped images and popping them up - in my last post I was just complaining about how much extra time I spend on cards because I'm forever doing that. Well with these die cuts it's quick and easy - no cutting necessary. Aren't convinced? Watch Pamela's video that I'm embedding down below - it will change your life. LOL! For my card today I used the die cuts that match my Miso Cute stamp set - because THEY so cute! :-) The layout for the card was Beate's latest Weekend Sketch Challenge. I just loooove that patterned paper I used - it's from last fall's Bali Breeze pack from Stampin' Up. But enough chit-chat about the card, you've got some HOPPIN' to do!!! From here you need to bounce on over the Marie's site and see what sort of die-normous fun she was up to!! And make sure to travel all the way through our blog hop loop and end up back at Pamela's site - she will be giving away some blog candy, you don't want to miss that!! You have until Wednesday at 8pm EST to enter her drawing. Now I just wish ALL stamp companies offered these die cuts with their stamps. That Pamela, she's a GENIUS I tell ya!! :-) Thanks for stopping by today, and happy stamping!!

  5. Fantastic, Libby!! I love all the details: the colors, the dot embossed BG, the hole punches on the left of the pattern paper, the ribbon! Everything just coordinates so beautifully! Your die-cut pieces look amazing the way you grouped them and coordinated their colors! Nice work! :o)

  18. Great card and die cuts! I was laughing when I read your part about the "old die cuts"....I think it deserves the old saying "They've come along way, baby"!!!! I have to admit I buy tons of dies, let alone Cricut cartridges......the packaging of them just does not do them justice, because you can do so much with them....enough rambling, I am off to "hop"!!!
