Creating Stamps
from your dies

Creating stamps from the dies in your collection is another way to extend their use and give you some matching backgrounds at the same time.

Creating Stamps

I love to use die cutting in my card making as it never fails to create a beautiful shape to add to my design.

But there are other ways to extend their uses and make dies work for you 

One of the ways you can extend your use is to Create A Stencil from your dies and use it in your cardmaking

They can be used to create lovely backgrounds with the help of embossing paste. Click the link above to see the video tutorial that will show you how.

In this video I am showing you yet another way to make those dies work for you and that is by creating stamps from your dies and making a matching backdrop to your cards

It is not long ... so grab yourself a cuppa and sit back and relax as you view the tutorial and then get busy and make some stamps for your self and .... Play !!

For both of these cards I used the Feather die from Spellbinders but you can try this with any that you have in your personal collection.

I have dressed up both cards with a pearl flourish on the feathers from Want2Scrap 

Buying dies is addictive but it is not a cheap collection and so it makes sense to get as much use from them as we can. 

Look carefully at yours and see how they can be used in other ways.

Some of the intricate ones can make really pretty focal points when used as stamps and all you need to do is give it a try.

Nothing is lost if you don't like the effect because after all it is only card and paper. but you make just get a surprising result that you really like and that can make all the difference to your enthusiasm when making cards
