Use an Intricate Stamp with Pattern Paper

 Hello friends!

I am popping in with a post on using Fragile Foliage Stamp & Die Bundle from Altenew.

 When this set was first released, I was loving it and didn't think I used it enough, especially with the coordinating die..... So, here I am!

thinking of you -001 

I have an unusual way of using pattern paper with this stamp set. This is my first time using the intricate coordinating die. If you like delicate stamps like this, you must then get the coordinating die! There is NO way you can fussy cut.  Not all coordinating die is worth getting, but this one definitely is worth it.

thinking of you

 I am actually quite proud of the "hills". They are the leftover pieces from die-cutting the trees! It totally makes sense to make good use with the pattern paper. This tree scene reminds me of the time when we traveled to visit The Leaning Tower of Pisa southern Italy.

 It also reminds me of Parsley! It's funny how these images evoke our feelings and memories.

Oh, on the last note, the star of this card is... that Sphere Stencil. Yup, it's a goodie!
