I'm so excited about this week's My Favorite Things Feature Friday video. The new Die-namics By the Letters is a die that I've wanted for the last year, and I'm tickled pink that it is here! I've gone sort of nuts playing with it... I love being able to make these cards with whatever sentiment I've got on the mind. If you already own By the Numbers, this is a great mix and match addition!
I used to hoard chipboard letters, but let's face it, those babies aren't cheap. Now that I've got By the Letters, I've been stashing cereal boxes, or shirt boxes to create my own. Of course these letters work perfectly fine all on their own, but I love the extra dimension I can get by layering felt, or patterned paper letters over a thin cardboard base! And hello, the cardboard is free and I'm recycling, & so its all good!
This first card uses wool felt for the letters and I'm playing with the My Mind's Eye Loves Me paper which I'm clearly obsessed with.
This next card was created for my niece's baptism. You can nestle five of these letters on top of the Clearly Sentimental Label Die-namics for easy placement. It is embellished with the Pretty Posies Die-namics (cut twice, once from patterned paper and one from corrugated cardboard.)
For even more possibilities, you can match the By the Letters Die-namics with the Mix and Match Banners Die-namics. I added the die cut letters (I love that this set comes with an ampersand!) to the banners (I've used three out of the four shapes) and then hung my banner anchored over a Die-namics Open Scallop cut from corrugated cardboard. --- Can you tell how much fun I've been having?---
And since it is Feature Friday, I have a video to share with you all about this awesome Die-namics set! You'll see step by step how I created my felt and cardboard letters, along with a few tips and tricks for working with Die-namics By the Letters!
