Stamp-peding My Way Through Life

Spring is in the Air

Happy Thursday!  Here is my Dies R Us design of the week. This week I chose to use Memory Box Toulouse Background and Impression Obsession's Square Cutout Border dies as my starting point for my card. Having a die, like the Toulouse Background, with a frame built in makes designing a card easy; it's almost done before you know what happened.  The Square Cutout Border reminded me of a lattice fence so I used it behind the Toulouse die with a contrast piece of CS underneath. 



I incorporated the long leaf stems into the Square Cutout Border with a few snips here and there, just to make it look like they were growing through the lattice. TIP: Don't hesitate to trim or snip your die cuts to fit your design or idea. 

A strip of heavy weight vellum was stamped with a simple sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps. My card base is one of my favorites from Neenah, called Columns; a simple texture in the CS that adds that little something.

Don't forget DRU is having a Design Team Call for our NEW Challenge Blog! AND stop by our shop for the latest in dies!
