January Inspiration Team - Using Eileen Hull's Sizzix dies on Card Designs

 This month Eileen Hull's Inspiration and Educator Teams are creating cards using her Sizzix Dies.  You'll find them gathered every Wednesday on Eileen's blog.

I made two cards for my post today.

A Valentine using Eileen's Mitten Box Die.

(See the mitten box I made on my previous post here.)

A new home card using the smaller tag house die from her House Ornament  Die.

(See how I used this little house tag on a summer card on my previous post here.)

It's always fun to figure out how to use the dies you purchase in perhaps unthought of ways!
Please check out Eileen's blog every Wednesday in January to see how her Teams use her dies for cards.

I'm linking my mitten card to:
