Creative Expressions Cutting Dies

Hello friends! I’ve been having the best time using Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Cutting Dies!

This white on white card was completed in just minutes! The monochromatic color scheme (which can be achieved with any color) has such an elegant look. I used white cardstock, Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Collection Butterfly Garden Cutting Dies and some white ribbon.

Tip: The Best Wishes Die Cut was actually connected and I cut the words apart to fit the card center opening.

Tip: I find it helpful to use stencil or washi tape to secure the outer die evenly spaced around the decorative die.



This pretty green and white card continues with the white die cut theme, but the fresh spring green background makes everything really pop!

I used Pastel Cardstock, Mini Expressions Get Well Soon Cutting Die, Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Collection Thistle Patch Cutting Die, Coconut Palms Sparkletz, and a Lime Green Button and bow.

This colorful card uses Cosmic Shimmer Colours Shimmer Skakers which gives the Paper Cuts Honey Bee Circle Cutting Die a pretty pearlescent shimmer.

To make this card, I die cut the Honey Bee Circle from a square of white cardstock without using the outer die cut circle.

I Sprinkled the die cut with Lime Burst and Electric Blue Cosmic Shimmer Shakers.

Lightly mist with water and blot with a paper towel and let dry.

I added the Mini Expressions “Thinking Of You” Cutting Die to the center and Ice Sparkletz to he flower centers.

    I’ve got to ask…..what adhesive do you use to adhere your die cuts. I’ve had a devil of a time finding just the right one for intricate dies such as the phrasing. While adhesive backing sheets are the easiest, they can be a bit pricey in the long run.

    I love your blog and the ideas you generate.

    I love the monochromatic look. It’s so easy yet looks so good. Also the shimmer shakes are a lovely addition. Thanks LeNae for your hard work and your great ideas.
