Easy Die Cutting....Matching Stamps and Dies


So when I take an online class I love to attempt an assignment for each lesson, the final product is great sometimes...and not so much other times.

That brings me to this card...I decided to die cut the shape first and then stamp the image, which I never do so this class was a good opportunity to try it out. 

I am awful at stamping on a die cut as you can see on this card...

I added sequins, inking on the back of vellum butterflies and a heat embossed sentiment to draw the eye away from the imperfect stamping and embossing. 

I always stamp and then die cut so it was enlightening to try out the opposite but, not surprising, that die cutting the image first and then "attempting"to stamp was not a great success. It's a learning experience so I hope you have learned along with me :)

Thanks for stopping by!
