To celebrate the sale, I scared up a fun little card featuring two of my fave dies — the Envelope Sliders and the Classic Block Alpha by Julie Ebersole! I think these are must-haves for every stamper’s toolbox!

Envelope Slider Dies

The Envelope Sliders come as a set of two and they can be used as cute lil envelopes to hold all manner of sentiments and other fun things. But! The best way to use them is as a s l i d e r!

I must confess I was giggling the whole time I made this!!! :)

Some tips and tricks for ya:

  • Watch Julie’s video over on the product page to see how to assemble the Envelope Sliders — her tip about adding the stopper is genius! Genius I tell ya!
  • I needed lotsa room so I made a business size card! Why not, right?
  • I masked the bear from All Inside and then stamped a pumpkin from the Bear Ware 2 set — that name cracks me!
  • Then I used Burnt Sienna mixed with Ultramarine Blue to mix the gray for Mr. Bear — my fave way to mix gray!
  • As for the Classic Block Alpha, I can’t say enough good things about it. Nice and bold for easy cutting and adhering to projects? Check! Cuts out of glitter paper like a charm? Check! No fussing around with delicate pieces or losing the dots off of an “i”? Check! Check! Check!

Plus it’s so handy to have die cuts like this so you can make whatever sentiments ya like!

BOOYAH!!!

Can’t wait to give this card to someone! :)
