Your Creative Connection Dies to Die for #YCC117

Hello and welcome to Your Creative Connection where you'll be hoping around the world to see our latest theme "Dies to Die for". We will be using Dies in our projects. 

Dies help you create unique die-cut shapes using different types of paper to cut-out shapes with a quick run through the Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine. The Dies include ejection holes so you can remove the paper easily.

Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine

I've created a Christmas card using a number of different Dies for my project. I started off with the Sounds of the Seasons Dies which is on page 33 of the Stampin' Up! August - December 2020 Mini Catalogue. 

Using Silver Foil I've die cut out three of the Jingle Bells and Green Foil for the foliage. I just love the tiny detail that's on the Jingle Bells and they shine nicely in Silver Foil.

The Stitched Rectangle Dies are perfect for a boarder around your images and they provide a nice finish to the card. There are 13 different sizes for the stitched rectangles and the largest one is 5-1/4" x 3-7/8" (13.3 x 9.8cm).

Wonder of the Season Specialty DSP

The Wonder of the Season is a Specialty Designer Series Paper the vintage designs come in red foil, gold foil and black script writing on the other side.

My brand new favourite Dies would have to be the Joy Dies they are in the Mini Catalogue and you can save 10% when purchased together. 

Peace & Joy Bundle

The Peace & Joy Bundle is a must for any crafter. I used them with the Foam Adhesive Sheets, giving you instant double sided adhesive and height to your projects.

To finish off my project I created a bow using the Real Red Sheer Ribbon for my Christmas card.

Now it's time to visit the lovely Dawn Olchefske in Minneapolis, USA and to see her beautiful project.
