Camouflaging Die Cuts

Welcome to my newest follower Jennifer Spivey. : )  Jennifer if you have a blog please send me the link!! I would love to visit you : )

Laura Bassen is a papercrafting genius in my book! : ) I love her silly straight forward personality! I can listen to her tutorials all day! She once called herself a "redneck" I'm still giggling about that one!  Please check out her blog, Doublestick Heaven for all sorts of eye candy and inspiration!!

Laura is our hostess for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday.  See her EASY PEASY "how to" video HERE

Without further ado... here is my take on this fun challenge.  It was so easy and I am loving the results!! I can see this technique is going to be in my "favorite" file for a long time to come.



I hope you are all having a fun (not frenzied) holiday so far. 

(((Hugs)))
Patti

Supplies:

White cs by PTI
Sentiment from PTI Wonderful Words: Snow stamp set
Snow Die from coordinating PTI stamp set
Mini gems from CTMH

I have to say that I feel EXACTLY the same as you do about Laura and her videos. I could watch her teach anything. Your card is absolutely stunning--I love the soft color scheme you used--and am wondering why I didn't think to use this stamp set. Merry Christmas.

Thank you for sending me this card Patti. I love it. It is super wonderful and even more beautiful in person. Love you!

This is so cool! I played with the technique of stamping then cutting the image and popping it up but I like this technique better. Beautiful card!
