Dies That Traveled Far

I got several dies on Amazon that traveled from China... dirt cheap and free shipping.  They arrived several weeks ago and I had not tried them out yet.  Yesterday, I decided to sit down and use some of them.  

I must admit, they cut excellent and I rarely had to poke any pieces out after.  Most of them fell right out.  If you are like me...I dislike dies that are time consuming.  

Here are some of the dies.  I have a few more which I hope to use soon!

Celebrate card has two new dies used.  The stitched square and green leaves. 

 I used the butterfly square for the Birthday Wishes card.  It was a scrap piece of paper I had experimented on with water colors. 

 I think this palm tree with the person laying in a hammock is my favorite die out of the bunch (so far).  Again for this card I used a background that went wrong.  I was able to salvage it by cutting it down for this card.  You see the birds?  That is a die that came with the hammock die.  I almost threw it away thinking it was a piece of left over metal!  It is so tiny so if you buy this out for the little guy!

 This peacock card also used up some scraps.  I glued the peacock onto some sparkly cardstock.  I fussy cut all around the peacock so the feathers showed the sparkly purple.

To be able to play again is so much fun!  I missed it!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful craft day.

Very nice cards! I bought some stamps from China and was very pleased. I especially love the top die. Do you remember what that one was called?

Barb Finnical....I got it through Amazon and it was sold through a company called Jia Jia Trade and after reading it I think it is called a Gift (Frame) die. I went back to search for it for you and it was no longer available at Amazon.
