July Sneaky Peek #3

It’s Day #3 of Sneaky Peek Week! We have so many great dies in our Christmas in July Collection that we are taking 2 Days to show off these really great CutUps. Today, is the first day and we are peeking 3 great dies that you can use to make some really great cards and pages.


First up is our Gnome die. I do love me some gnomes, so of course, I had to have a die. This die comes with two different hats, mittens, boots, along with the beard and nose. I designed it so that you can get multiple looks depending on how you layer the beard and hat. His body is long, but you can make him shorter just by placing his beard lower.  So many options!

And, the Cat Pack and Special Guest Designer, Leigh O’Brien will show you how. So let the peeks begin!

First up is Cristena Bagne and her AMAZING card. She gives her gnomes so much dimension by coloring. Make sure you go to her blog for a closer look.

This darling card from Kerry Urbatch uses the Birch Trees Stencilz and the Birch Snowglobe, as well as the gnome. She gives him so much personality just by coloring him, and tilting his beard and hat. And, his tiny hands, just precious.

What is better than one gnome? Well, lots of gnomes. This card is from the uber talented Leigh O’Brien. She cuts out the word “Greetings” and even dusts the top with a little bit of “snow”.


Next up is our second die, the Cardinal Duo Die. This die is actually 2 dies. One cuts a pierced circle and the second cuts a Cardinal sitting on branches. Put them together and you get a circular “window” with the Cardinal.

Brenda Nakandakari, does a simple and elegant card, paper piecing this die and adding a bit of sparkle for the berries.

Kerry Urbatch creates a darling card with an ombre background. A beribboned sprig embellishes this beauty.


Here’s another jaw dropper by Leigh O’Brien. She turns the Cardinal Duo into an ornament! She blings up the NEW Hello Winter CutUps to finish up the card.

Finally, our NEW Hello Winter CutUps. It’s a beautiful script die that is the perfect size to use on its own or with other stamps and dies.

Here’s a fun card from Wendy McGaffey that uses the New Hello Winter, Gnome and Peek-A-Boo Frames CutUps.

Finally, Nancy Thomas uses the New Hello Winter CutUps with the NEW Warmest Wishes Bundle. I think it’s so clever that she hooks Hello Winter with the fishing penguin.

There are so many goodies I haven’t shown here. Check out each of the blogs below. Then, comment on each of them,  you could win a $10 gift voucher. We’ll pick a winner each day this week from the comments on the blogs and post the winners here and on our Facebook page.

  1. Wonderful cards! Really loving the gnomes! They have so much character!
    Beautiful cardinal and ‘hello winter’ sentiment too!
    I can’t get logged in to leave a comment for Leigh’s blog post, but her wreath card is just beautiful!

  2. Love the shading on Christina’s
    gnomes. they have so much
    depth. Loved Leigh’s winter
    cardinal scene. I have
    trouble getting to comment
    on her site – I think I’m logged
    in as D. Not sure how that
    happened. thanks for
    having the hop.

  3. My favorite bird is the Cardinal so that new die is a
    must for me! Sooo pretty. And the gnome die as well.
    I can’t believe that I used to hate gnomes. Now I love
    them! Great cards!!!
