June Guest Desinger, Alice Carman Take 2!

Alice here to share take #2 on Die-Namites Cutting Dies. I'm really liking the different takes on these dies when I use them to make cards.  They are perfect in size for card making and they cut very nicely.  I used plates A, B and C with a metal shim in my Cuttlebug and they cut super nice.  It's a clean cut every time!

 I used Tulip Trio on this card and filled the die image with different color card stock so the flower on the die can be seen. 

I really like the silhouette look of this die and if you don't want to use card stock you could paint the inside and add glossy accent.  It will look like stain glass...I may try that!

I used Tree Full of Birds  on this card  and i added resin flowers so the colors on my card balanced.  I really like the little birdies from the die design.  You can also popped the birdies with another color if you desired and use the extra birdies on the card and pop them so they look like they are flying off the card.  Just a thought!
Thank you for following along today and a BIG THANK YOU to Die-Namtes for the opportunity to guest design for them and their generosity.


  1. Great cards and I love the dies you have used.
    The tulip trio would look awesome cut in acetate, lined with a black liner glass pen and then painted using glass paints for a stained glass effect.

  2. Your cards are stunning Alice, like both of them :)
    Great style also.

    Have a great day
