Celebrate & Make a Wish...Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge (July 2017)

Hello,

We are so having a heat wave here, to the point where Environment Canada is issuing *Heat Warning in Effect* statements!  YIKES!  And guess who's spending the weekend at bike races! Swelter-fest in the forecast!

Anyway....let's discuss far more entertaining topics, such as the Happy Little Stampers July 2017 Anything Goes with Dies Challenge.


Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

Recently (as in before I spent the past two weeks with my mom on my working/visiting excursion), I watch Jennifer McGuire's 7 Ways To Use Coordinating Dies video. Yep....inspired! Aren't we always, though!

The first uses the impress technique, although it's difficult to see as the impressed die is nearly the same size as the diecut. That's okay...still a 'something new' for me...



The next two use the solid dimension technique; one with the cake (straight stamped sentiment)


the other with the sentiment and the cake.


Inset technique for the next two.




And here's the gang!

Please visit my teammates for some truly amazing die cut inspiration, then play along with us!


See you in the gallery!


 Thank you for dropping by; your visit is both welcomed and deeply appreciated!

Oh how cute these are! I love all the different ways you colored the birthday cakes to make them special. And then those candles......what a neat idea!

A fantastic set of colorful cards, Carol! I have this fun set and haven't used half of them - why?! I have to get them out after seeing these inspirations! I hope your examination grading is over now and you can enjoy the summer! Hugs, Darnell

Fab cards Carol, we both appear to have been watching Jennifer's You Tube channel. She always makes things look so easy! Hope you didn't frazzle at the races. :)

Oh gosh, the heat is on everywhere! I hope you don't melt! I would be so very sad! Please drink lots of water and be safe! (I know you will, but couldn't resist the reminder). One of my brothers lives in Arizona where their temps got up to 119 degrees Farenheit (not sure what the Celcius conversion is). Anyway...enough about heat, unless you count the heat coming from the candles of these awesome cards! Look at the fabulous array of beauty. I love that you took inspiration from Jennifer and created this super set of cards. Wonderfully colorful and they all look amazing! Thanks for sharing. Big hugs!
