Jenn’s Beautiful Ombré Scalloped Card!

Jenn has some gorgeous Fun with Dies inspiration for you! Her card uses only dies and is absolutely stunning!

Jenn die cut a bunch of Rooftop Border scallops to layer on her card! It looks like a very colorful mermaid tail! She alternated blending Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink in the same color to get that amazing ombré look!

Jenn finished her card with a Stitched Heart Stackable cut from Pixie Dust Sparkle cardstock and Scripty Smile with multiple layers of Storm Cloud cardstock on top!

Thank you Jenn for sharing this gorgeous card design with us today!

This is the last weekend for the Fun with Dies challenge! It will be open until Sunday, December 1 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you join us!


We will be back on Monday, December 2nd with a brand new challenge theme, see you then!

Samantha’s Punny Holiday Card!

Samantha Mann visits the blog today to share a “jawsome” ocean-themed holiday card! She used Stitched Hillside Borders dies in a unique way to inspire you for our Fun with Dies challenge!

Samantha used the Stitched Hillside Borders to create the wavy borders on the top and bottom of her ocean scene! She blended Distress Oxide inks in Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet, then splattered water over the top for a fun bubbly look! The punny sentiment is stamped with clear embossing ink with Harold’s ABCs then white embossed so it pops on the black cardstock banner!

The cute shark from Duh-Nuh borrowed some fun accessories from Christmas Fishes (Santa hat, seaweed and rock) and Winter Narwhal (scarf)! Samantha colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers before fussy cutting them to add to the scene!

Thanks so much for this amazing inspiration today, Samantha! I love the punny sentiment!

We hope this inspires you to get creative and join the Fun with Dies challenge! The challenge will be open until Sunday, December 1st at 11:59PM ET.


Happy crafting from your friends at Lawn Fawnatics!

Christy’s Winter Wonderland Card!

Hey everyone, it’s Christy here with another card for our Fun with Dies Challenge! As I’ve been flipping through my Lawn Fawn stamp sets lately, I’ve been pausing often on Winter Bunny. He may have been around for a while, but in my opinion, he’s a classic! And today is his day to shine as the one and only colored image on my card, amidst a winter wonderland created with dies.

After he was colored with Copic markers and trimmed out with his matching die, I set him aside while I created a background using Distress Oxide inks. I sprinkled the background with some Liquid Stardust for a pretty little splash of shimmer when you tip the card into the light. Then I took a few snowflake images from Ready, Set, Snow, and stamped those on the background in purple. I cut down the panel and added some stitching detail with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables and adhered it to a light purple card base.

I had this vision for the scene with giant snowflakes tumbling out of the sky, so I die cut a bunch out of white cardstock using Stitched Snowflakes and glued those down to the top half of the card, and trimmed off any excess. Then I added the Forest Border, also in white, for Winter Bunny to sled down.

To finish off the card, I added a Scripty Joy sentiment die-cut out of red cardstock, then layered over the top a white heat embossed sentiment from Ho-Ho-Holidays. And of course, a little sparkly glitter glue the tips of all the snowflakes and Winter Bunny‘s scarf. I also finished off the inside with an appearance from Winter Fox, which you can check out if you like in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

If you’re feeling inspired to pull out those dies and get crafting, not to worry! You still have time to play along in our Fun with Dies challenge. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Our Fun with Dies challenge will be open until Sunday, December 1st at 11:59PM ET.


Wishing you all a very happy and crafty weekend!
