Ewe are the best......

( used inside for writing on).
Papers- from my scraps box.
Morning everyone!!

I have been busy cooking away this morning so only just got time to sit down and get my blog post done! my house smells yummy!! I am going to get my homemade soup once I have written this post as my reward for not forgetting!! he he!!

This is my mum's birthday card. I love these twist and pop cards and have been making them for some time now but a lady I follow called Dawn did an amazing tutorial for them that makes it sooooo much easier to make them. You can find it HERE ON THIS LINK

I used some scraps of paper from my scarps box for the patterned pieces and then it was time for those super super cute MFT Ewe are the best sheep. My mum loves sheep so these stamps and their matching dies just rock in our house!! we use them tonnes!!!

Here is how it looks when it's open....(....and it still looked like that when my mum opened it because I totally forgot to write in it in my excitement when I finished it and put it in the envelope.....!!!!!)...

I love how you can showcase a few of these gorgeous stamps with this card fold! and here's a video of it opening because I just love it!!!!! Hugs Lou xxx

Pumpkin Spice with Stamping Bella

Hey everyone, Elaine here again with another dose of Stamping Bella inspiration here on the Dies to Die For blog.

You may recall in last week's post I mentioned I have a recurring seasonal obsession with colouring pumpkins. The recent Stamping Bella release has certainly helped me indulge my obsession!

Stamp: Stamping Bella Set of Pumpkins (incl. sentiments).
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers
Paper: Make it Colour Blending Card, Echo Park digital

These have to be my favourite pumpkin stamps to date, with the usual little details you might expect from a Stamping Bella stamp set. There are three separate pumpkin stamps in the set, and two sentiments (as seen on the cards above).

Watch me colouring these pumpkins in the videos below!

I've also got a post about colouring these pumpkins over on my blog which you can check out by clicking through HERE. The post includes a video and some colour combo suggestions for colouring these images with coloured pencils!

If Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers are more your thing, I have a blog post for those too, with a video showing how I coloured the large pumpkin from this stamp set: Colouring a Pumpkin using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.

That's it from me for now! Catch you next week.

Secret Santa

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

Why Secret Santa? Well, it's because I'm showing you some of the latest releases from SugarPea Designs. They're not in stock yet, but they will be. So, sssssshhhhhh, it's a secret!

Firstly, I want to give the Happy Holidays Paper Pad a 'big up'. I used it for all of these cards and all I did was use one sheet of paper on each card. All the design work was done for me. Santa is from the Here Comes Santa Stamp Set.

 I just LOVE this angel. His face! He is from the Come Let Us Adore Him Stamp Set.

Last but not least, I popped back over to the Here Comes Santa Stamp Set, because I couldn't choose just one of them and I stamped some Ho! Ho! Ho! Phew. I'm ready for a mince pie...

Ewe are the best...

Hey Guys! Little Mo here.

I am a bit late today because I have been playing on my new Lego Dimensions Harry Potter level! It is really good but I had the crafty feeling too and my nannie's birthday is just coming round the bend so I had to get that special card done.

I thought what better than a cute couple of sheep because my nannie loves sheep so much she has them all over her house!!

I chose to use the mini note die because its so cute and little and has a surprise bit on the inside you can write your little nannie message on.

See you guys later!!

Is it christmas Yeti?...........

Stamps- Beast Friends.
Morning everyone!

There's just way too much cuteness in the new MFT Beast Friends stamp set!! I love their little faces so much!! and this little festive lights one was too cute to miss! 

In the set you get lots of little extra stamps and they are just perfect for making a little scene around your chosen cute dude! I went for a few trees and pressies!

I decided on the gorgeous Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots paper to go with him and oh my oh my, those Stitched square scalloped edge frames are just beautiful. I popped it up on a little foam just to finish everything off.

Thank you for peeking in, Lou xxx

Sweet Autumn Scenes with Stamping Bella

Hi everyone! It's Elaine here today, with my first post here on the Dies to Die For blog.

I've got a little card making inspiration for you today featuring a couple of the gorgeous new arrivals from Stamping Bella, in stock now at Dies to Die For. I had some serious fun colouring these cuties. Autumn is my favourite season, so I am an absolute sucker for autumnal images. At this time of year I get particularly obsessed with colouring pumpkins!

Stamp: Stamping Bella Casey has a Cornucopia (incl. sentiment).
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers
You can watch me colouring Casey in the video below or in HD over on YouTube (video includes Copic Marker info).

I also recently posted a little step by step guide and video over on my own blog showing how I created the backgrounds on this card and the one below. Click through to read the post: Adding a Fun, Easy, Copic Background to Your Stamped Images.

Stamp: Stamping Bella Patricia loves Pumpkins (incl. sentiment).
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers

Isn't she adorable? The little bee...I can't! Too sweet. The bee actually comes as a separate stamp in the set, so you could easily pop him anywhere, or give him some friends (careful though, too many and it might look like little Patricia is in trouble!).

Watch me colouring little Patricia in the video below or in HD over on YouTube.

That's it from me for today! I hope you've enjoyed taking a look at these new Stamping Bella sweeties. I'll be back next week with some more Stamping Bella fun.

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

How cool is this image, Stamping Bella Game On? Don't we all know someone like this?! So, not only is this a cool image, who looks like someone we all know, but it's on offer this week. Wooohooo!

Now, I've used Carta Bella Boy Oh Boy papers, but, if when you go to buy Game On, if you accidentally popped an Echo Park That's My Boy Paper Pad into your basket, that might be on special offer too. Just sayin'!

You're Rawr-some.

Hey guys, Little Mo here!!

And today I've used a little cute dinosaur from the MFT You're Rawr-some stamp set to make a little cute card.

Firstly, I cut out 5 different layers. 4 from my mummy's MFT Itsy Bitsy Polka dots patterned papers and one plain bit for my cute dinosaur. Secondly, I stuck all of my base bits onto my card.

Then I got out the misti ( whoop whoop I love this thing! it makes stamping for small's so easy!!!) I can do my words and my dinosaur both together at the same time and work out just where I want them to be, ink up and all done!! easy stampy!!!!

I coloured him in a cool blue colour and then put him on my card with some sticky foam on the back of him so he rawr-d out a bit!!!!! lol !!!

Thank you for reading, see you later! Little Mo out, RAWRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

Reindeer Games.

Hi guys! Little Mo here with a card but wait,wait,wait,wait,wait...this is no card!! you can use your cute little Mama Elephant Reindeer Games on other stuff too!!!!

Today I used an ikea stacking gift box from mummy's stash...she'll never know...ha ha!! and I put lots of sticky glue on the top and then dunked it in my fake snow. I made a few little holes in the wet snow where I wanted my super cool reindeer to party on!

Then I stamped them out onto a piece of cardstock with mummy's Misti. I love this thing, it makes stamping so much easier for me because I don't have to worry about doing any Little Mo wriggles when I lift my stamp up and spoiling my image with a smuuuuudge!!!!

I cut the little city scene out and stuck it to the back so it looks like it's far away while the reindeer party on. I had to colour one with a red nose like Rudolph too.

See you next saturday, thanks for popping in, Byeeeeeeeeeeee!! from Little Mo.

Hop you have a nice day! .......

Stamps- TGF Hoppy Hello.
Papers- MME Boy Crazy.

Hey guys! Little Mo here back for another cute card.

This week I had a very sad day when my bunny William went to heaven unexpectedly :( I was very sad so I decided that this weeks make should be a bunny.

I stamped my bunny and cut him out with the matching dies. I love those, they make it very easy for someone small like me to get a lovely cut shape. For his little cute scarf I stamped him on a scrap of the papers I chose for my layers and snipped it out and stuck it on top.

I had a little mistake when I tried to stamp my words on so I thought ot oh what can I do to fix that? I nearly had a cry but then an idea popped in my head and I stamped it again on another scrap and cut it out with a fishtail flag layers die, phew sorted!

Thanks for popping in, see you later, Byeeeeeeeeeeee.

Page Huggers....

Hello everyone!

Another cute card for you here today from me.I just had to have the page huggers stamps and matching dies because I love to read but then I thought they would be nice for a card job too!!!

So I decided wouldn't it be cute to have a bear hanging onto a fence looking adorbs!! The Die Namics Blueprints 1 set makes it super easy for someone smaller like me to set up a card all easy peesy because all I had to do was choose so cool papers from mummys stash newly aquired pile of paper I might of just borrowed maybe a bit permanently!!!! giggle!!

I wrote on the label all by myself and did a little heart on the i instead of a dot. Who doesn't love a cute hello card?!!

Thankyou for looking from Mo.
