Sunday Stuff

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards made with Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies Challenge in mind.

I took inspiration from the wonderful Jennifer McGuire - here - but then made life complicated by trying the same effect with dies rather than stamps.

It all started out really well - I chose my coloured card and stamped  the sunflower in matching ink on the white card and stamped and embossed it in white on the peach card.

Next I die cut the thanks and actually remembered to save all the little bits and placed them back in without too much bother.

Then things got a bit more tricky! I sliced the cards and did the swap and boy was it fiddly getting all the little bits - this time round even smaller - back into the correct spaces.

But on the whole I like the effect this technique gives, but would just be a bit more sensible with choice of die, or just sticking to stamping would be even better, another time.

Stamps: Stamplorations, Sketched Sunflower
Card: SU, peekaboo peach
Inks: SU, peekaboo peach; Versamark
Embossing: Ranger, superfine white
Die: Lawn Fawn, thanks

Thanks for dropping by today, hope your weekend has been a blast.  And keep crafting!
