I took some time this past weekend to play with some of my new stamps and dies from the gorgeous Occasions Catalog. Boy, was that FUN!
I used the Sheltering Tree stamp set (item #137163) and Hello You Thinlits Dies (item #137363) to make this card.
You know what my favorite part about this stamp set is? The stamp that grounds the tree! It’s so perfect, and necessary – otherwise the tree just floats there. And trust me, I could never figure out how to make my “ground” look good on my own.
And I just LOVE the 4 thinlit dies in this set! Here’s a tip for cutting them out: lay your card stock on top of your cutting plate, then a piece of wax paper big enough to cover the die, then the die. Finish off with the other acrylic plate, then run through your Big Shot. Also, back the whole thing through the Big Shot again, then once more forward, for a total of 3 times through to get a cleaner cut. Using the wax paper really helps, too!
Give me a shout if you have any questions. And thanks so much for stopping by today!
