Use Bold Alphebet Dies with ROSE Stamps (Altenew Post)

Hello friends!
Hope you are having a great day so far...
Today's my turn to share a project with you over Altenew Blog.
I really want to utilize the this Bold Alphabet Set. 

Previously, I made celebratory banners with this great die set (see here) for my daughter's successful defense of her PhD thesis!

This time I want to do something a little different.

and you put them together....
you get this.

I love creating fun and personalized sentiment. I though it would be cool to use the letter "U" and "R" and combine them with "simply amazing " from "More than Words"(shop Altenew, shop SSS).

So, how do you do this if you are wondering?

Here's the break-down of my creative process:

1. stamp the images (like you normally would). In this case, I stamped the rose and leaves. 
2. plan out your placement of sentiment and spacing of the dies, line up the dies with a ruler (if necessary) . Use Washi tape to secure them.
3. die cut and punch out the image (don't freak out here!!). Die cut some more with white card stock/scrap pieces.
4. stack and adhere 3-4 pieces and position the dies back to where they were.
5. embellish.


Do you like the "hidden" letters?

It's simple yet impactful.
Hope this gives you some inspiration and that you find it helpful.
