I love to die cut manually– I know–it sounds crazy–but, there is just something fun about sitting down (or standing) and using my Big Shot or Big Shot Pro–to quick make the exact die cut I need without any electronics!
Plus, then I could craft without electricity if I had to 😉
Don’t get me wrong- I am not trading in my Cricut or my Gypsy– I just like the ease and simplicity of dies. Lots of people make dies–I have mostly Sizzix, a few Quickutz, and my newest addition are Spellbinders dies.
I didn’t try spellbinders, for the longest time–and then once I did I was hooked. You can use them in most diecutters. I use mine in my Big Shot- and they work like a breeze. You run them thru once to cut, and a second time to emboss. I will post a video of this on tomorrow (Thursday) during the Spellbinders Holiday Hop!
So be sure to come back Tomorrow for the HOP– for Holiday Inspirations and prizes!
But for now–here is the card I made using the Mitten Die from Spellbinders Universal Die.
Don’t you love that Core’dinations Paper?? It made the stitching on those mittens–really POP!
I love Core’dinations and I can’t get enough of it!
AND–I am giving away Core’dinations Whitewash Paper stack, & Core Couture!
Don’t worry it works in the cricut too 😉
All you have to do to win is leave me a comment telling me….if you prefer mittens or gloves!
I’ll announce the winner on Friday 🙂
