{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Stamps with Dies

Hi, Cornelia here today showing you how you can stamp with your dies.

My STAMPlorations supplies:


I took the dies and die cut them with fun foam.

Used a glue stick and mounted them onto a clear acrylic block.

In the end I settled on the rose die....

Stamped it repeatedly with different color distress ink onto water color paper.
Misted it with water to have the colors blend a bit.

Once it was dry I thought the colors looked a bit too washed out, so I over stamped the roses again with distress inks. Added the die cut sentiment using dark grey card stock.

Added a strip of hot pink card stock on top, some Nuvo drops and rounded the bottom corners.

Now isn't that a cool way to stretch your dies?

Remember if you try out any of the techniques from our Spotlight posts, make sure to hook your project up at our Spotlight Project Showcase gallery.
