Maximize the Use of Stamp and Die Combo

Hello friends!
I am delighted to share a fun project with the Stamp and Die combo.
s
Floral Shadow Stamp and Die is easily one of my favorite combo. 

Basically, I sprayed on the white card stock with various Distress Inks (see links at the end of the post). I then stamped the leaf images and made the die cut.

The following photos should help you to see my process.

One special thing I did was the "Inlaid Die Cut". This gives the design a more polished look.

I chose a serene and subdue colors for this "thinking of you" card. I added some black splatter with some Enamel Drops and watercolor.

thinking of you #3
I hope this gives you extra ideas on using stamps and die combo. When choosing dies, I always opt for images that I could never fussy cut, such as Floral Shadow Stamp and Die.
Lastly, I want to pass on a few promotions over Altenew.
