Wednesday’s WOW! #95 – Today I am giving you some Tips using the Birthday Dies.
The Birthday Dies are now available as co-ordinating products with the Happy Birthday To You Stamp set from Sale-A-Bration.
When I went to use them for the first time it concerned me as the cake stand doesn’t line up with the cake stamp set. It is a different shape. That’s ok. Just trim off under the base of the stand. So you are cutting the leg of the stand off.
Then it’s easier to adhere the cake stand on to the cake.
I love these dies as they give a lot more layering to the set. You have the 2 different leaf shape dies and there are 2 on each die making it quicker to cut. They cut so easily too.
The other larger shape in the set is for the flowers. To use this one, stamp your cake on your card then also stamp the cake on another piece of card. After colouring the flowers on the additional piece you can diecut them and layer them on to your card. You could have several layers of flowers by stamping and die-cutting them several times.
Below is part of a card I have made recently with the stamps and the dies. I can’t show you the full card as this is my card for the Stamping Tutorials for this month. It gives you a peak though. 🙂 I haven’t used the flower shape dies on this card but lots of leaves and I have cut the cake stand too.
I think this is a really great stamp set to begin with but having the dies now really adds to this set. I love all the layering you can create.
The Happy Birthday To You set is a free Sale-A-Bration choice with orders over $90 AUD.
Another tip: Purchase the Birthday Dies ($50 AUD), add another stamp set or ink/card to make your total to $90 then choose the Happy Birthday To You set for FREE. Winner! you can get both together. AND – ordering with me you will receive the Tutorial Bundle with the card above as one of the projects. 🙂
Have a great day,
