Blog: Happy Die Days!

Happy Die Days with Ellen Hutson

For today and tomorrow (November 16-17, 2013) Ellen Hutson is having a sale on all their dies! Throughout Toile Gift Guide, I used several dies that you may wanna add to your collection, so I’m highlighting them here  – along with a few holiday oldies from the Damask Love archives. The dies in this post are stand-alone dies and don’t require any coordinating stamp set, which I’m sure your budget will appreciate!

Now that it’s officially holiday season, I’ve been shopping like there’s no tomorrow…so I figured I might provide a little temptation so that I’m not the only one emptying her wallet!

This one’s a oldie from 2012, but I still love the Pine Sprig die that I used on this project. HERE’S the original post if you’d like to see more! This die is also great for non-holiday projects like THIS project.

Scalloped Border Die | Damask Love Blog

I suppose you could call me neurotic, but this scalloped border die from WPlus9 is the only one I really like. The shallow scallops look more elegant to me, while other dies with deeper scallops look more cutesy.

I’ve used these large alphabet dies HERE and for making this fun holiday card. The size is great for cutting out a large focal sentiment. I like to use them with Craft-A-Board to add dimension.

  1. I went back and forth about the “Sprig” die last year – now I’m kicking myself…or I could just go and order it – LOL! The poinsettia is amazing 🙂
