Stretch Your Stamps: Day 6

Yesterday's bonus class for Stretch Your Stamps was to use stamps with matching die cuts. I admit that I don't use my dies nearly enough so I was really happy to play along with this challenge.  For the first one, I took inspiration from Julie Ebersole's class video that showed using stamps with vellum.  I cut the image out twice.  Stamped it once with a light green ink and the second tight in a purple ink.  I then cut out the flowers and adhered them with glue dot dimensionals to the green die cut image.  Now...looking at this...I should have also done something a bit different with the sentiment from the Day 5 class!  I do love the soft feminine feel of the card.

Next up is a completely different looking card. For this card, I embossed the outside edge using a Lil Inkers Embossing Frame.  I then die cut the flowers from PaperTrey Ink's Larger than Life set.  Love the color combo!  

I will be back tomorrow with some more cards inspired by the class!

  3. Oh my goodness, I totally love both cards. The softness of the flowers and sentiment in the first one....the background paper in the second one (LOVE!) and those cool flowers like a bouquet for someone who needs them, and then balanced out with those buttons and sentiment like that. Awesome job, Lynn! I also am taking this class, have watched most of the videos, but have yet to produce a card!! You're inspiring me, however, so hopefully soon!

  14. Such pretty cards today! The flowers look so soft and pretty stamped on the velum! :> Vellum can be fussy to cut so having a die would be a huge help! :> I love the second cards pretty colors and embossing!
