My daughter asked me for a card that was like “sending a hug” in the mail.
So…I did exactly what she asked me in the half hour before she wanted to pick it up…
When I made it, I die cut the hugs with the Hand Lettered Prose Dies and laid them on the panel I stamped with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. It was too flat so I thought of little pieces of dimensionals but that would be tedious and not very stable. So I put the die cut letters on some white fun foam I had. I just die cut the hugs out of the fun foam, used Tombow glue to attatch the DSP hugs, and then glued them to the panel:) It looks so good! Now, if Stampin’ Up had sheets of dimensionals we could cut out shapes…that would be awesome!
I forgot to snap a pic of the inside…a simple repeat of the flourish in the lower right corner:)
It’s Wednesday…time for a video tutorial!
This one shows how to use the Negative Die Cut for an accent on your card creations:)
The Hand Lettered Prose Dies are a great alphabet to use on an A2 sized card.
Thank You fits wonderfully:)
Think of all the words you could use on a card…baby, wow, love, super, happy, the list goes on…
The extra layer of cardstock under the DSP gives just a little more depth for the negative die cut letters to show off. Next Wednesday, I have another video showing a neat way to accent your card with the Hand Lettered Dies so make sure to visit.

Ever since the catalog came out, I have been itching to make a frame using
the Stampin’ Up Hand Lettered Prose Dies.
I finally did it!!
My suggestion is to cut all your Rococo Rose letters, then your Pear Pizzazz letters, then your Pool Party letters, and then your So Saffron letters. The opening on this frame from Ikea is 5″ x 7″ just like in the catalog sample. I drew a pencil outline on my black cardstock of the opening. I arranged the letters so they fit and glued down the Z first. Then I lifted each letter one at a time and adhered it to the black cardstock. In the small spaces scattered throughout, I used the stitched felt embellishments from the Follow Your Art embellishment Kit.
My first time using the Stampin’ Up Hand Lettered Prose Dies- I love them!
The stamp set they are bundled with is super cute- it is called Praiseworthy Prose.
But the dies are a great value for stand alone alphabet dies with the addition of symbols, too.
