Dies without stamps – Lawn Fawn Videos!

Happy Thursday! My Friday video is a little early….AND it’s also doubled – two, count ’em TWO videos!

I was playing with dies during that now-infamous craft retreat in April….and one of the things I tried, that I had thought about for a while, was using dies without stamps. Not just the dies MEANT to not use the stamps, like butterflies and the like. But the kind that are supposed to cut out images. Lots of them work without the stamps – and sometimes they can be even cuter with no stamping! Check out this video, and the annotation in it that’ll take you to the Lawn Fawn YT as well….and below are each of the cards made in both videos. Links to shop for ALL of the stamps and dies are in the doobliedoo. (Setting THAT up was a feat in itself!) And the post over on the LF blog is HERE in case you want to go leave a hello for Kelly Marie too! 🙂

In the above video – a round card using the Critters from the Past set:

Sandy Allnock - LF dino 1

This is the Love You S’More set – using papers from Simon Says’ recent Daybreak release. If you’ve never touched these papers, you’d be in for a treat – nice and heavy with a unique texture. And guess what I used for the bear’s nose? The marshmallow!

This one uses the Into the Woods set, and the deer is colored with distress ink and a white pen for the spots. Sandy Allnock - LF deer 1

On the Lawn Fawn video….critters on safari! Cute little giraffe with a clothesline full of clouds. Oh and the grass die! I’ve wanted that for ages, very excited to have it now.

This one’s got the dog park set, and I used distress markers and a waterbrush to watercolor the pup and his shadow.

Hello Baby is another new release, and I used Simon Says papers again on this one.

Sandy Allnock - LF bunnies 1

And last but not least, I made this card during the retreat itself using the deer from In the Woods. CUTEness!Sandy Allnock - Oh Deer Die

Hope you’ll give the idea a shot – take a look at your dies from a new perspective and see what you can come up with!
