I love this type of style, should have done it before.
My inspiration is Joyce Mehrberg and boy has she inspired me.
Isn't this card stunning. As my first foray into this style I have used a Penny Black stamp that I recently got (thank you for that inspiration Therese).
This stamp is just stunning and my first time using it I have stamped with Memento Black Ink then die cut a square out. The square that was cut out has been coloured with copics.
The coloured panel has been added back into the original large stamped piece but with some fun foam behind it to add a bit of lift to the panel.
I have then stamped 'you make me' into the tag section of the stamp and added the die cut 'smile' that I die cut twice, the second time in gold mirror cardstock.
So many more possibilities, I hope to add a couple more cards to this challenge from Happy Little Stampers as it runs for the month and I really love this look.
Ok off to add to
Okay thank you very much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
Does anyone out there have this die
If you do, have you been able to use it okay or do you need to go in and trim pieces apart. I only recently got this die and it just doesn't do a clean cut. I have done cardstock down to thin paper and it will not cut clean. I have used extra cardstock on top of the cut piece and added layers of card and paper to add pressure on the plates.
Nearly couldn't turn the handle the pack was so tight, I don't have a metal shim to assist with cutting but have never needed it before. I only have the cuttlebug and wasted that much time and cardstock last night thought I would ask if anyone else is having this problem.
Thanks for your time spent reading this part. XX
