Lydia Crafty Corner- Four Looks With Alphabet Dies

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone! Lydia here and today I’ll be sharing 4 different looks using Alphabet Dies. Change up your look by using different colored card bases, inlaid die-cutting and the stamped letters themselves.

I started by taking 3 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panels of Solar White Cardstock and I stamped a cluster of flowers and leaves onto each of them. I used Bride-To-Be Stamp Set for the floral images, I just love the look of these. I used Pink Pearl and Coral Bliss Inks for the rose flowers, Volcano Lake and Lagoon Inks for the blue flower buds, Mango Smoothie Ink for the yellow bloosom and Minty Mint and Sweet Leaf Inks for the leaves and stems.

Once I had finished all of the stamping I then cut ‘hello’ into each panel using Brush Alpha Die Set.

I then added these panel to card bases in slightly different ways:

  • for the first card I added the stamped and die cut panel to a white card base using foam tape. this is a very subtle look but the dimension of the foam tape adds shadows to the die cut letters to make them pop a little more.
  • for the second cad I added the stamped and die cut panel to a bright colored card base. I added this using glue tape as I didn’t need to add extra shadows as the contrast between the white stamped panel and colored card base was great enough already.
  • for the second card I added the stamped and die cut panel to a white card base using glue tape. I then cut ‘hello’ again using the same dies from Gold Mirror Cardstock and added these into place on the card front.
  • for the final card I used the ‘waste’ from the other panels, the very beautiful stamped alphabet die cuts. I added these to a card base using glue tape.

Very dramatic looks with the big sentiment cut outs! And your cards made me glad I ordered that stamp/die set today. New release is purse-draining this month because every single product is AWESOME! Thanks for the inspiration!

Great cards. Thanks for the tip about mounting the alphabet dies on acetate to help with placement! Brilliant idea! I will definitely be giving that a try.
