Creative Use of Stamps and Dies

Hello friends!

I hope your summer is going swimmingly well...
Today's post title sounds a bit generic.
However, if you look at this card, you would understand what I mean.


When I said "creative use of stamps and dies", that means....

1. use only part of a large stamp such as Flower Medallion for background effective
2. multi-color stamping can be done easily with the help of MISTI
3. to create a seamless look, simply make two dies in one piece
4. mist the Flower Medallion with water and stamp on the Distress Oxide
5. strings and small sequins make this design "flow"


I am giving this card to a new couple who made a big order of personalized wedding cards from me.


I used the glitter tape from Altenew. These tapes are awesome to have on hand as you never know when you strike GOLD!

congratulations (2)

Don't forget to check out the latest HERE and sales HERE (if any) over Simon Says Stamp.
 I hope this post inspired you to try out a few new things if you have not done so.
