Not only did I used a new die but I also used a new stamp set that I had purchased and never put it to use. So this qualifies for Darnell's NBUS Challenge. The die is a Happy Anniversary one from Tonics Studio and the stamp set is one from A Jillian Vance Design called Simply Said: Happy Daisy.
First I stamped my design repeatedly with Memento Tuxedo Black onto white card stock and then colored the design with my Copic markers.
Next I took a Memory Box Cross Stitched Frame Border die and made my layer from this stamped pattern paper. I was then ready to die cut the hidden Happy Anniversary verse. Now since this required so much inlaid pieces I decided against doing another layer underneath. It would have involved too much piecing but I still think it works for a hidden design.
Much of South Dakota is getting snow but so far we have not gotten any. Maybe later on tonight. We might wake up to 2-4 inches they said.
Well, another day gone by again. It seems I mostly only get one card done each day. Always other things to occupy my time. But I guess even so, better to go at a snail pace then rush and not get as good a work.
Thanks for stopping by. I love your comments.
