Create Vibrancy with Altenew Stamps and Dies

Happy Sunday, friends! 
I am sharing a super bright card today.
you are the bestest-001

I was trying to use up my DIY color paper. The easiest and fastest way is using the stamp and die cut combo.
 Bamboo Rose Stamp and Die

The vibrancy from these ink-sprayed paper is amazing! 

you are the bestest

For someone like me who doesn't do a ton of detail coloring, this is just the perfect way to maximize the use of outline stamps. I decided to take it up a notch, so I did the inlaid and Partial die. Notice that these images are sticking out and not popped up? I put the die cut pieces back like a puzzle once I ran them through the Cuttlebug.

Matching stamps and dies are expensive. So, I am trying to think of more ways to "justify the cost". Well, this is one of them :) Hope that you find it helpful!
