Make It Monday #222: Die Cut Kissing

Here I am with another MIM post. 🙂 This week Betsy used an old stamp kissing technique but changed it up a bit by using a stamp and a die cut instead of two stamps. Honestly, stamp kissing is a very new technique to me. But then, I’m a newbie at stamping.  I started this wonderful adventure with my friend, Cindy, just a short 2 1/2 years ago! This technique was fun and I think I’ll be trying it again very soon!

IMG_0610editedFirst, I did a test run with the 2 PTI products I wanted to use, the Bloomers stamp set, and the Heart cover Plate die.  The birthday sentiment is from the Bloomers stamp set too.

The process……

I trimmed the stamped panel down and had some pretty strips left.

I couldn’t bare to toss them out, so I used them to decorate the inside……..

which is very unusual for me. I’m very happy with how it turned out.

IMG_0605edited I stamped the inside with “Many Blessings” from PTI’S Scripted Stamp Set. Besides playing this over at PTI’s MIM #221, I’d also like to play this over at WAW’s Challenge #198 – Anything Goes

SSS Wednesday’s Simon Says Anything Goes.

1-layer Butterfly – Stenciled

Today I have one-layer butterfly card to share with you. The design for this card was inspired by this week’s CASology’s Week 157: Wings  and the colors are from ColourQ’s Cahllenge #301.

I’m also going to play this over at SSS Wednesday’s: Anything Goes.

IMG_8996editedI used a SU die to create a stencil and then sponged the butterfly in Calypso Coral, So Saffron and Crushed Curry.Then I masked off the butterfly with Post-It tape and sponged around the butterfly. This time I used So Saffron and Night of Navy inks. The sentiment is from PTI’s Scripted stamp set.
