I hope this post finds you well. I am popping in with a post about altering the look of an intricate die. The Twigtastic Die is used as my example.
I love the look of this intricate die. However, I find it a tad short for my liking since I love making top-folding card. To change it up, I die cut two pieces of dies and stacked them over.
I then stamped the BAF Coral Louise Peony flower and popped it over it. I decide to stamped just the two layered of inks and kept the image simple.
Notice the flower and background are in matching colors? I used Gel Plate with the same ink colors (for the flower) to create the background.
Note: do not be intimidated by Gel Plate. It is such a great and fun tool tool to ink up your paper. Plus, you can use it with many other printing/stenciling techniques.
Today's Take-away: look at your dies and change it up. You can add, extend/shorten the length, stack or use parts of the dies. I hope you like today's share. Here is another example with the same die. I used is as a stencil, too!
Thank you for stopping by!

Just love both cards, Virginia! Great use of that twiggy die!!
What a striking die and makes a great background!
Great idea shares. I like the extended look for the top folding card. The dies of this similar style are one of my favorite new additions. Would like to add some to my supplies.
So clever, and I really like the second one!!
Beautiful card! I like this die and I
love the way you extended it!
LOve and own this sweet twiggy die and have yet to use it. Like the way you extended on your peony card. Also, the clever way you stenciled it.
Nice colors and textures on these pretty cards!
Very pretty cards! The Cora Louise Peony is lovely in the colors you used! Extending the atwitastic die is such a great idea!

Great ways to use this die.
