One Die Four Ways

Good morning friends~  I've got 4 cards for you today using just one die.  What a great way to extend the use of your dies!

The Frantic Stamper Dresser Card Panel Die is so dalring used as it's intended.
But here are some other ways to use this die:
I used the die that's used to make the top ledge of the dresser as a clothes line pole and hung those sweet little dresses in the set out to dry.

There are two rectangle dies in the set so I used them to make a frame and added those darling little baby embellishments that are also included in the set to the bottom.  The baby embellishments are colored using copics.  You could also use this frame to create a shaker card and use the little embellishments as shaker elements.  That little peanut in the frame is a picture of my very first grand child, due in May 2018.  Just had to share my joy with you!

For my final card, I used the die elements to create a rolling tool chest.  I cut the chest out using the smaller rectangle and added four of the large drawers and used the trim piece to cut silver metalllic carstock for the trim on the drawers.  I had these old tool stickers from Mrs. Grossman's that fit perfectly in the drawers.

So there you have it!  Four cards using one die!


I hope you're inspired to look at the dies you have and think of different and unique ways to use them.
