Let's jump right in. I've got a few samples to share today.  I just adore my die-namics and always have a hard time deciding what I want to showcase for this post. Not a bad problem to have, though. lol.


 Here you can see the full set with the die-namic bits and pieces. I bet you can guess how much I LOVE that teeny tiny tag.  What a fun accent to add to any card. With my card I used it to add the simple sentiment, "JOY", with all the business of the card, I knew to keep the sentiment simple.



Here's a close up of the image panel with all the die-namics in action. YOu can also see all the shimmer and shine I added with the snowflake stamps and some iridescent ice embossing powder.
I used lots of the Christmas Ornaments die-namics to make this gilttery, sparkly holiday card. Papers are from the Free Bird line by Authentique and they were so perfect for this festive card.


I really like using non-holiday papers for my holiday cards.  The new die-namics you'll spy here are the ornaments, the bits and pieces on the ornaments (all included in the stamp set and die-namic combo. BUt don't forget starting this release, you CAN purchase the dies by them selves...more options for you....making crafting easier!), and the crown border.  All of the completed ornaments are all perched on the Clearly Sentimental Label. It is such a fantastic size die, there are so many ways to use it.


Next I've got a card that shows a unique way to use the file tab die-namic (I know. It's not new, but if you haven't picked up this great die-namic, then you might just want to pop it into your cart tonight along with the fabby snowflake trio die-namics.

The snowman is NEW though....he's the Holiday Hugs Snowman and I think he's just darling!

I cut two red circles out, just a bit larger than my circle for the snowman. Then with the file tab die-namic I cut two green pieces for my stand of the snow globe.
Glue together your snowman circle and the front red circle. Then I attached one of the file tab pieces to the front red circle.   
Turn the whole card over and attach the second file tab piece to the back of the card, making sure your tab pieces line up together. Here's what it looks like from the backside.

Then I added some chunky glitzy glitter to the front and added my sentiment (stamped on the oval from Sweet Stack)  and an embellished snowflake die-namic to finish off my snow globe card.  Here's another look at the finished product.

Join us at Kim's Blog to see list of the final day of teasers with the PEP RALLY posts!
