Today, Melissa is sharing on her blog how she is inspired by using die cuts to create card designs:


“When I sit down to create, or even when I’m brainstorming, sometimes it’s fun to start with my dies first, instead of a particular stamp set.  The January Papertrey Ink release had some of the most fun and inspiring dies yet, and for my cards today, I started by selecting a few of these dies and then built my cards around them.  Mixing and matching dies from different collections and selecting a sentiment to compliment these dies, from an unrelated stamp set, are creative ways to use your Papertrey Ink supplies.  I hope you’ll give this approach a try and take on a new challenge!”
