My Designer's Choice Challenge- Punches and/or Dies with Stamps


It’s another Designer’s Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built, Repeat Impression’s blog. It is my turn and I have challenged my team and you to create a card using punches and/or die cuts with stamps. Why don’t you join us in this challenge and enter your card for a chance to win some awesome Repeat Impressions rubber? Please visit the blog for all the details and to see the other Rock Star's projects for this DCC challenge. I have seen them and you do not want to miss them!

I find myself designing with die cuts and punches all the time now and when you combine them with great stamps, you have the best of both worlds. I loved this Easter card I found on Pinterest and decided to CASE it for this challenge. I started with an oval stitched die from My Creative Time cut in the center of a white piece of cardstock. I die cut another oval in a piece of acetate and used that to sponge the pastel colors in the egg onto the white card base. I stamped the “beauty of springtime” sentiment from Repeat Impressions in the center of the pastel colors and attached the front piece with mounting tape to raise it. I die cut a couple pastel bows (Clearly Besotted) and added a gem to complete the Easter card.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Craft Your Passion and Crafting from the Heart, and the Design TeamShowcase.
