2 Cards with One Die!


Hi bloggers! Happy Monday afternoon to you! I’m always so happy to share with you something else lovely that the fantastic Jess Larsen has made for us to share on our blog with you! Today for her special STAMPtember® feature she shows us how to make 2 gorgeous cards with one die! If you all are anything like me, you appreciate a good value & a gorgeous result!



 As a lover of all things crafty, I often collect different products and then forget to use them! It has been a goal of mine to rediscover those products, so I decided to experiment with my alcohol inks. They are so much fun to play with, and I have found that you can really do no wrong with them — my kind of product! :-)

I combined my alcohol ink background with my very favorite STAMPtember® product — the Big Hello die. When they say BIG they mean it!  This die is HUGE and works perfect for the focal point for a couple of quick and easy cards. For the first card, I die cut the Hello five times using white cardstock. I glued them all together to create a very thick, dimensional hello. I added the pink alcohol ink Hello on top of that and popped it on to a white card base. Very quick and easy, but still packs a lot of punch.

I couldn’t bring myself to waste that pretty inked background, so I decided to create a card out of the negative of the die cut. For all the details and to see those awesome inks in action, check out the start to finish video I created!

  1. Alcohol inks are so much fun to use and I love how you made the ‘hello’ so dimensional on your first card – thanks for sharing !

  2. Just gorgeous, Jess. I’ve tried using the negative for a 2nd card& the hardest part for me is cutting straight in the 1st place. Your video was great.

  3. Love these two cards!! Great results with your alcohol ink background! I love this new die as well, definitely on my wishlist! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Two really awesome cards, and such a great idea to use both parts this way and it looks really cool with this alcohol inked paper. Think I´ll have to give this a try soon.

  5. very cool, I love alcohol – in this form:-)Thank you for revisiting an old technique!
    Wish Simon says would make this die in European too, Hallo. Would be right for Germans and all us Scandinavians, plus quite a few other languages. The French could just cut the h away and get allo. Please SSS!
