Create a Scene with Parts of The Stamps and Dies

Hello friends!
Creativity strikes me when I have a new die!
Today's card is just about that.
I had this new die for a while now and I was wondering how to approach it.
I took out this cling stamp and decided to use it as well!

As you can tell, I did not stamp the bottom part of the stamp (with people holding umbrellas)!

Instead, I added some flowers in the foreground with Blossom Branch
by using the TIP of this large cling stamp. 

Have you ever done that? EVERY bit of a stamp is precious, in my eyes!

Not only the floral stamping gives the design some pops of colors and it also adds some interest. 
Chase your dream-001

This die is does all the work! I did just die cutting and added a piece of silver glitter paper in between a piece of thin card stock. Easy and cool!

The sentiment was stamped in two colors and I love how it compliments the entire design.

Your starry sky looks amazing with the Eiffel Tower! Just love the flowers instead of the umbrella people!!

Your star filled sky dancing across the Eiffel Tower is beautiful Virginia! The flowers give it the perfect spring detail!

Love that pretty die! It is fun to try out a new die! Sometimes I have an idea for it from the get-go, but I often need to mull it over to decide.

What a great composition using very different sets! Love it.

Dawn T said...

fabulous Virginia. Great idea to use just portions of each stamp set.

Teresa Doyle said...

Absolutely beautiful Virginia. I love it when any random stamp I pick up can be partially inked and used other than in its entirety. You used this one beautifully (both of them actually.) The stars look lovely on this.

Great card design with these stamps and die.

Beautiful card Virginia! Love that you transformed the stamp from a rainy day to Springtime in Paris! :)

You're right this card is like a dream. Of course, the iconic Eiffel Tower evokes immediate reverie but the stars and the flowers just make it magical. Gorgeous card.

Harriet said...

Wonderful, wonderful. Your card is excellent. That die is great and pairing it with the Paris stamp is brilliant.

Your explanations always give hints to look at stamps and dies for uses. Today's hint, only use part of a stamp is brilliant.

You are so clever, Virginia! This card is absolutely GORGEOUS! I love how you selected certain parts of your stamps and your 2-toned sentiment is beautiful!
