Creative ways to use Slimline Dies

Creative ways to use Slimline Dies

Hi everyone!  Samantha here today with an expected way to use a product. I knew I wanted to use the Round the Block die with some of the smaller images from the Magical Christmas and Christmas Miracle stamp sets. The snowflakes and ornaments fit perfectly in the circles.

The ornament card was the first one I made:

I traced the circles from the Round the Block die onto the white background paper so that I could stamp all of the ornaments. I erased the circles and added the kraft circle die along with the yarn and tag.

I was planning on making a second card with the snowflakes in exactly the same way but realized I could just use the die itself as a template and avoid tracing and erasing the circles at all:

If you’re worried about the die moving, use a little low tack tape to hold it in place.

After I had the snowflakes stamped, I realized there was enough space to add more snowflakes in between the first ones I stamped so I just shifted the die and used the edges of the first snowflakes I stamped to line it up:

Add a sentiment and viola – a perfectly spaced grid of snowflakes! And if there is one thing I love it’s a perfectly spaced grid that came together that easily! This just made the Round the Block die a really handy tool – trying different images or only use some of the circles for a smaller grid.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
