For the love of Dies!

I love my metal dies that I use for scrap booking and card making!
I really think I prefer to use dies rather than stamps.
My collection started a while ago with dies from Quickutz! At the time they were the only company that made dies! Since they are no longer in business I get dies from other places.
The majority of my die collection comes from Memory Box and Impression Obsession. With a few others mixed in there!

A couple of cards created with dies.

This is a gorgeous Memory Box die on stenciled background! Lots of times I leave the sentiments off until I know what I need.

Isn't this a cute card? Reminds me of my backyard! The squirrels are IO. The tree, greenery and fence are M B. The pumpkins are Poppy Stamps! The mushrooms are Cherry Lynn Designs.

I tell you what, the use of die cuts has truly become an art all of its own. I am always amazed and how intricate they are how versatile they are with each other. They're no longer just a backdrop to a stamp, they take center stage now. I love the Autumn scenery you've created with the fence and squirrel and mushroom. Gorgeous work!
