Think Outside the Box with Dies and Stamps!

Hello everyone!
Do you love dies!!!
Join the club ….
SO DO I!!!
I want to encourage today to use your dies to think out side the box…
You don’t always need to use them in card making or scrapbooking
BUT… 
you can challenge yourself to create home décor pieces like the Hello Frame I created. 
I bought an inexpensive frame and covered it pretty pattern paper from Authentique.
Die cut a doily and stamped Hello using black ink in the center and adhered it to the top of the prepared frame with my Xyron Adhesive. 

Die cut pretty flowers and stems and adhere to the corner of the prepared frame. 
(I used Diamond Press Dies and Stamps for my Hello Frame.)
Diamond Press creates unique products that can be purchased on HSN or in their online Shop…

Add finishing details by punching out and layering circles together and adding enamel dots to centers of the flowers! 
BUT WAIT…
THERE IS MORE…
How about a refrigerator magnet!
YEP…
YOU HEARD RIGHT!
Die cut you favorite flower die out using pattern paper; adhere layers together!
Add die cut leaves and stems to the underside of the flower. 
Adhere to top of circle magnet. 
WHALLA LA…
REFRIGERATOR MAGNET!
I hope you are inspired today to create fabulous projects using your dies and stamps that you have in your stash!
Enjoy Pam
