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!

Pine Sprig die by Dee's Distinctively | Damask Love Blog

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.

This poinsettia project from Toile is one of my favorites! I’ve already made a ton of these for dressing up some of my handmade gifts.

Christmas Tree Die by Dee's Distinctively | Damask Love Blog

Another oldie…from back in the day when my photography lighting left something to be desired! This Christmas Tree die makes for a beautiful intricate design with very little effort!

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.

Winter Wreath Die by My Favorite Things | Damask Love Blog

I will never tire of wreath dies and this one look oh-so purdy atop the Chalkboard Background Stamp from Hero Arts.

Large Tag Die by My Favorite Things | Damask Love Blog

The My Favorite Things Traditional Tags Die collection includes seven sizes which gives you options for any project. I found that the largest tag in this collection works wonderfully as a wine tag the the Limited Edition Over-the-Edge: Joy Stamp is a perfect fit!

Memory Box Large Alphabet Dies | Damask Love Blog

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 🙂
