1 Background Die, 3 Set of Cards

Hello my Crafty and Stamper Friends:

Thank you so much for your lovely visits and comments...
 how invigorating they are to our creativity!!! 

I am bringing today,  the last card that I made using the same background die...

In this card I decided to removed one circle flower to leave some space for a sentiment
I added some ribbon, pearls and a button, very easy and fast to make...

So with 1 very same die...
You can  make at least 3 different versions of cards and all using a very distinctive approach...

This is what I called "stretching your dies", so if you want to see more about this subject visit my "categories" on the side of this blog under that name "stretching your dies"

Quick Recap: with any background die/ or stamp
1- look how you can make it smaller, how to cut away some design and used it that way, in my case I used half of the die for the birthday card in pink
2- pair your die with a "different material" , try to think "out of the box", for this case acetate has  always giving me good results
3- add a sentiment or another element that complements the design of the die. here I insert the "hey" script, I thought in putting another flower or making a 3D flower to pop up from that circle..."hey" maybe next card!!!

Ok I hope I gave you some ideas and if you come up with different ones let me know, I love to "increase" the  "database " in my brain :)
Remember you can approach your dies/ stamps and give them another look...use tem a lot and used them as much as you can, that is why You bought them...to use them!...

Thanks for the visit 
and I will see you tomorrow 
for another Lavinia's Stamp challenge...

  8. Another really beautiful card here Bibiana, and it´s just as lovely as all the others, you´ve made with this gorgeous die. I really love this one here too, and also the use og background dies, as it can be a huge help, if you need a really fast card some times, and still keep a very high standard and make something beautiful, and this one is just amazingly beautiful.
