What Annette Says: I first die cut Waffle Flowers Crafts: Doily Square Die and then used it as a stencil. Using dabblers I added this fun colorful blend of colors. I then die cut the middle using the Doily Square Die and created a fun window almost like if you were going to create a shaker card just minus the sequins. Finishing off with rounding the corners.In Every Way Stamp Set; Loved Stamp Set; Tiny Wings Die
What Shelly Says: For my stenciling, I chose to make my own stencil using the Tiny Wings die. I took a piece of scrap paper and one by one placed the butterfly where I wanted it and ran it through my die cutting machine. Thus giving me my stencil.Magical Stamp Set; Holiday Labels: Merry; In Every Way Stamp Set; Surface - Tag Die - Scallop Add-on
What Laura Says: For my card I started out with a stencil made from the Tag Scallop Die. To create a "window", I inked it up with Distress Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves. Then I added several snowflakes and trees, embossed in different colors, for a wintery scene. Finished it off with the Magical Die in Silver paper:)
[Guest] Quyen NgoUsing: Bowtiful Stamp Set
What Quyen Says: I used distress inks in peacock feathers and tumbled glass to sponge on a template. I then repositioned the template slightly offset and used a white gelly roll pen to trace over the spaces. After the ink was dried, I stamped the sentiment and bow image (from Waffle Flower bowtiful stamp set) in VersaFine Onyx Black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. As it was a simple card, to finish, I rounded the outer edges and put on some gems in random places for a little sparkle.___ Aren't these cards fantastic?

Using a generic circle die as a mask, I masked off the centre of the card and watercoloured the light blue across the panel. Once dry, I removed it and used the negative part of the circle die to mask off the panel so I could focus on the central area of the card. Tiger & Lily coordinating dies were used with masking paper to create the island scene along with no-line watercolouring.

I used the leaves from Leafy Stamp Set, as I really liked the hanging leaves from the inspiration photo. At first, I masked the area with some posted notes, blended my background and then stamped the images slightly off-setting them... I wanted to achieve a more graphic modern look :)

Introducing Bowtiful Additions Stamp Set
Stamp Cheat Sheet
ExamplesFor those of you who wanted a bow stamp to create the flower that our Bowtiful Die Set creates, your wish has come true! This card shows clearly the proportion of the label on a standard A2 card: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". This card shows the label horizontally positioned on a standard A2 card. The bow outline, "Bowtiful" and "Day" stamps are from our Bowtiful Stamp Set. Have fun mixing and matching the sentiments. They are designed to work together. Using our new Surface – Tag Stamp Set, I was able to change the label into a tag very quickly. Finally, here is my favorite card for today! The tag hole reinforcer was from our Surface – Tag Die - Stater Kit. I hope my card samples today are easy to try even if you are new to card making? I'm new to Project Life but here is a 3" x 4" journaling card I made for my little album: Pure stamping fun!!!
