Hello – Stamped and die-cut card.

Posted on 30 Jan 2015

Welcome to today’s blog post. So with so many creative projects going on, I always have loads of bits and pieces left over. Like the other day when I added Gesso to the Chiswick cardstock to create texture. So what’s a girl to do? Well, use all those bits and pieces up to create another project. I used the left over cardstock to create another beautiful card, but this time I used it to die-cut some elements for my card.

Chiswick cardstock is perfect for all those beautiful detailed die-cuts. See how the Gesso looks so beautiful on the edges of the die cut frame.

With all the left-overs from the technique cardstock I could cut a whole bunch of different elements to use on cards and layouts – so nothing is wasted, but everything used.
step 2
On the edge of my card I used one of the beautiful script stamps from the “Symphony” clear stamp set. A light grey ink blends in beautifully with the soft background colours of my card.

These stamps are really versatile and can be used in so many different ways – but my favourite is using them on backgrounds – subtly and beautifully.
