WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #135 – DIES THAT CUT THE PAPER!

Wednesday’s WOW! #135 – Diecut those paper images!

Stampin’ Up! are clever. A big appeal with Stampin’ Up! is the co-ordination and it is not just with the colours. The tools work with the other products too.

Have you noticed? Many dies available in a suite can be used to diecut the images on the Designer Series Paper. No snipping with scissors for many of these.

I discovered this with the Blossoming Happiness Dies on the flowers of the Hues Of Happiness Paper. And it is not just the larger flower. It is also with the smaller flowers and the leaves.

Check it out below.

I had started cutting these with scissors and then discovered this little gem so just had to share with you.

Have a happy Wednesday,

Jenny

THE DOUBLE LAYER DUO TECHNIQUE + VIDEO!

I recently came across a card idea in a magazine I was reading. I thought it looked cool. I wanted to replicate it with our inks and stamps. So I did! I put together a video for our Friday Flicks for you to see how to create it yourself.

These are the cards. I call it the Double Layer Duo Technique. It’s an interesting twist on the Double Layer Stamping Technique if you have tried that before.

I have used the gorgeous Delicate Dahlias stamp set. This works so well.

For this technique you will want a stamp set with a number of images. I can’t wait to try this with some other stamps.

Here is the video.

The Delicate Dahlias stamp set is available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration with your qualifying orders over $180 AUD. There are only a few weeks left to grab this.

If you need to place an order and you are in Australia I would love to help you.

Head to my store -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: GS9S4AY9

or you can contact me directly.

I hope you get to make one. Let me know.

Have a great day,

Jenny
