Creating Stamps from your dies

Creating stamps from any of the dies in your collection is yet another way to extend their use, and give you some matching backgrounds at the same time, for a unified look.

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

But there are many other ways to extend the use of your dies to  help you get your monies worth,  and make dies work harder for you 

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

It can create some lovely backgrounds for you to add as a base to your designs.

They can be used with the help of embossing paste, and by clicking  the link above it will take you to another window where you can  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 !!

Creating Stamps

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

I have dressed up both of the cards with a pearl flourish on the feathers and that is from Want2Scrap 

Buying dies is very 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 may just get a surprising result that you really like and that can make all the difference to your enthusiasm when making cards
