Die-normous Fun!

It's time for another Firecracker Designs blog hop! Today our theme is "Die-normous Fun". I'm sure a lot of you are wondering...What? Die-normous? Well...did you know that not only does Pamela have tons of awesome stamps sets in her store she also has die cuts that perfectly match a lot of her sets. I personally think this is absolutely GENIOUS! As a person who cuts out a lot of images by hand, these die cuts are AWESOME! As you know I like to make a lot of my butterfly images 3-D. These die-cuts make this a breeze! Pamela has a fabulous video showing exactly how to use her die cuts. To view the video click HERE . (If you go check out the video, and I highly reccomend it, make sure to come back and finish the blog hop!)

For my card today I used the butterfly stamp from the set butter/dragonfly. I loved not having to cut out the butterflies by hand!Supplies used: Stamps from Firecracker Designs, SU CS, Bazzill CS, DCWV textured DP, Kaiser pearls, Prismacolor marker, Shimmerz Marigold, Stampin Up border punch, Offray ribbon.

For more DIE-NORMOUS fun make sure you hop on over to Vicki's blog! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have die-normous fun this weekend!

I'm catching up on commenting after a short break and I feel like I lost touch with everyone...why can't life just stop every so often...I want to get off!
Off to look at all you've been up to! Take care!
