Hello everyone!! I’m on the Top Dog Dies Blog today with another card that I created using one of my new dies.
Did you see that awesome release yesterday? Top Dog Dies released 10 new dies and they are really to “die” for!! Just in case you missed it you can find it here.
They are giving away all of the dies to one lucky winner!! That is $122.00 worth of great dies!! You don’t want to miss that.
Today I’m here to show you how to maximize your dies. I used the new Top Dog Dies Typewriter Uppercase Die!
How many time do we use a die for it’s intended purpose but throw the negative piece away? Well not today. I’m going to show you how to use that negative piece on your project.
(I saw a card with this technique and I knew I need to give it a try. I wish I knew whose card it was but if anyone knows please let me know.)
Now take a look at my card:
To see how I created this card, head on over to the Top Dog Dies Blog for the full photo tutorial!!
Thanks for stopping by!

So creative and chic!! Absolutely love this!!
This is so cute! Love the colors!
Thank you for sharing your creativity.
What a fantastic Idea! Thanks so much!
Love the idea on how you use the alphabet. There just does seem to be great ways to use alphabets. This makes it so easy.
Thanks for sharing your tutorial. Love how you used the negative.
Cute, never would have thought about using the piece that the letters were cut out of on my card
Hey Colleen!! Yes, me either until I saw someone else do it. That is why I had to share it! We just have to stretch our imagination with the negative pieces!!
Why not give a credit to the person whose idea you used? That would be nice and polite. 🙂
Hello Lilia, I didn’t remember whose card I saw, that’s why I said in my post if any of you know whose card I’m talking about please let me know so that I can give them a shout out.
Thank you Lilia! Fotinia reached out to me on Instagram and she was excited to see me CASE her card and I let her know that I couldn’t remember where I saw her card. She was ok with it since I did say I couldn’t remember who it was and if anyone knows please let me know. Someone saw it told her and she contacted me. I will add it to my blog later. Thank you for looking out for her. I will let her know.
Yes, I noticed your words a little later. I added the link as well. Hope that helps 🙂
Hey Karien!! Thank you so much!!
I really love the background on the negative portion of the die cut. I know you used the Wild Honey and Pickled Raspberry but I am curious as to how you got the watercolor effect using the ink pads. I’ll have to look that technique up on YouTube to learn how.
What a nice clean and simple card. I love the background of the negative of the die cut. How did you get the watercolor effect using ink pads? I guess I need to research YouTube for the technique.
Very creative use of the alphabet die. Simple but lovely.
Love how you used the negative pieces in your card project! Awesome I always toss mine away, but not anymore. Thanks so much and happy spring blog hop.
