Hello Friends, Time for a great challenge over at Just Us Girls. Sue is hosting and she has asked us to try our hand at Stacked Die-cuts. I love this trendy- trend, and with so many different dies on the market these days, the sky’s the limit. I opted to stack my sentiment, however if you do not have a sentiment die you may stack any die of your choosing! I couldn’t wait to get my Paper Smooches stamps inky again, along with the new matching die-cut set. Isn’t that painter’s palette the coolest? My hubby loved this card when I showed it to him! HOWEVER, there is always a however when you show a resident artist your work. He said, “It would have been cooler if you made the paint circles more free formed, because when you put the paint on a real palette the paint is never that perfectly round.” He has a valid point, so maybe I will try that in the future. Please don’t tell him I said so. LOL He did give me a few additional ideas for future cards though! I guess I will keep him around. I am also linking my card up for the very first time over at The Paper Smooches blog. They have an Anything Goes challenge still going on. Win Win for me! I can tell you without a doubt, I will be buying more of their stamps and or die-cuts real soon!
Here is another photo…so you can see that the die cut is raised. Not sure if you noticed but I ran the die through my Big Shot with a shim to make a point to make the added indention around the die-cut. I like that look!
Card Details: I have used three layers of SU Thanks die, the bottom two are in white. The Paper Smooches stamp set is called I Heart Art and the die-cut is called Positive Strokes. Cardstock is all Stampin up. And of course I had to use my MFT stitched rectangle dies. Hope you come on over to JUGS and join us! If you are chosen as our Chic of the Week, you will be in the running for a possible guest designer in the future, just like our current GD Ros Crawford this week! Hope you find sometime to be creative this week! Take care, Nanc’
