Another simple card today with a couple of John's stamps and the Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics Die Sets.
Dogwood Flower Frame Stamp Set onto Milk Card using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A Die Set using the Out of the Box technique. It's easy to do with this stamp as the frame around the stamp helps. I just cut around the leaves and petals that hung below the frame on the stamp and slotted the die around it so that the design outside the die was away from the cutting edge. I'm hoping to demo this technique on the Craft Clinic next week - it's easier to show than describe! I cut a 6 x 6 Matting Basics B die out of Black Card.
Creative Expressions Sparkle Square Embossing Folder. I cut a frame out Black Card using both sets of 6 x 6 Matting Basics. I added some corners cut from Sue's Scandinavian Corner, Border & Tag Die Set.
Black/Ivory Striped Grosgrain and added a Black Vintage Button.
I made another card exactly the same using John's Daisy Corner Elements Stamp Set.

I'm up at Creative Expressions HQ today running an Introduction to Stamping Workshop. My aim is to get everyone hooked on stamping! Wish me luck!
All for now.
Thanks for stopping by.
