Stamp It Saturday: Out of the Frame Die Cutting with Sandiebella

Time for another Stamp It Saturday! This week Sandiebella has a really useful tutorial for you on how to do “Out of the Frame” die-cutting, where you die cut your image using a circle/square/whatever die with a portion (in this case the balloons) sitting outside the die-cut. Simple, but oh so handy, especially for images like our gorgeous Uptown Girl Bentley.

it’s WONDERFUL WEDNESDAYS WITH Michelle Short AKA the CARD GROTTO!

Hello there, Michelle here and I am delighted to be sharing another card with you today. My card uses the adorable Especially For You Petunia stamp set. I just love Petunia! She is always so happy! ūüôā

 

 wonderful wednesdays with Stamping Bella- RUBBER STAMP USED: ESPECIALLY FOR YOU PETUNIA, CARD BY MICHELLE SHORT

 

I started off by stamping Petunia on to a circle of cardstock that I cut using a stitched circle die. The image was then coloured using Copic Markers, adding in a little blue for sky. I took the sentiment from the Kitty & Mousie set and with a bit of masking, I stamped the ‚Äėhappy‚Äô and ‚Äėbirthday‚Äô on to a piece of black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. The sentiments were then cut in to strips.

 

 wonderful wednesdays with Stamping Bella- RUBBER STAMP USED: ESPECIALLY FOR YOU PETUNIA, CARD BY MICHELLE SHORT

 

I took a piece of patterned paper and cut this using a pierced square die. This was added to a white 5.25‚ÄĚ x 5.25‚ÄĚ card base with tape runner. I then added the image circle on top with foam tape, as well as the sentiment pieces. I love combing different sets and Stamping Bella sets go so well together. Thank you so much for popping by today, see you next Wednesday! I hope you have a great day!

 

Thank you Michelle!!!
