Hello, crafty friends. It's been a hot minute since I last shared. Life just happens that way sometimes, right? First, I was sick for a few days, on top of getting ready for our annual Disney trip, and tying up loose ends on the new Whimsy Stamps Video Team. And all the while trying to recover all the photographs lost here on my blog!


Yes, I laugh to keep from crying and it helps.

I’m so excited to be back sharing inspiration featuring the new Spellbinders Fluted Classic Die Sets by Becca Feeken. In my opinion, die sets like the Fluted Classic Sets are a must-have staple. I love cutting a panel with clean, simple lines with or without the fluted details. And that’s not all. Frames are easy with the die sets and perfect for adding layers to show off your patterned papers. I have three cards to share with you today featuring a few of the Fluted Classic Die Sets and the All Aboard Card Kit.

The first two cards demonstrate how I used the Fluted Classic Rectangle, and Fluted Classic Square Dies to show off the pretty patterns from the All Aboard Paper Pad utilizing a frame, as I mentioned earlier. The first two samples I’m sharing are easy to create, perfect for those in-a-pinch cards.

· Die-cut Navy cardstock from the kit using the large rectangle outer rim die and the large rectangle insert.

· Use double-sided tape from the kit to adhere to an A2 card base.

· Die-cut floral-patterned paper using the large rectangle inner rim die.

· Use double-sided tape from the kit to center floral paper onto Navy cardstock.

· Die-cut cream patterned paper with medium rectangle inner rim die.

· Use double-sided tape from the kit to center cream patterned paper onto floral paper.

· Die-cut a piece of teal woodgrain patterned paper using the small rectangle outer rim die, the small rectangle insert die, and the small rectangle inner rim die to create a frame.
