Last Saturday afternoon I pulled out some of my ink pads and Papertrey Ink acrylic stamps and did some stamping, what fun! I even did a little heat embossing trying to get the white sentiment to pop.
Each of my cards uses the Papertrey Ink Take 3 Summer acrylic stamp set and the Take 3 die matching die. The sentiments are from Michael's $$$ bin.
I had the chance to play with a sketch I C.A.S.E.d from a lady named Dana who inspired me a few months ago. I used Cuttlebug and Sizzix embossing folders on each card. I've come to the conclusion I like the Sizzix embossing folders the best because they cover the entire card front there aren't any unembossed (spell check doesn't like my new word) edges left.
I decided to try a different layout for the three images for my last card, still using the same stamp set. I really like the Papertrey Ink Take 3 die. It's much easier to stamp with the clear stamp once the square is cut out rather than to stamp and then cut like you might with Spellbinders dies. What I really think is neat about this die is you can use the negative part as a template to line up your three in a row images.
I even tried this die with digital images but you'll have to wait until June 24th to see those.
Thanks for visiting my blog today!
