Heading out to CHA in the morning....

But before I go...I thought I'd leave you with a colorful card I made using a die cut within a die cut.  I've used my favorite technique (the walk and wiggle) with Distress Inks, a craft sheet and spritzing water with my mini mister.  HERE is a link to a video if you want to check out the technique.


Tip: To cut out the butterfly on the card, just place the small butterfly die inside the Ornamental die and run them through your die cut machine using white cardstock.  I used the cut-out butterfly as my embellishment.

And now I'm off to spend 4 fabulous days with my Jemmifer!!! 

Enjoy!!!

Ah yes I remember learning your walk and wiggle technique - a very clever & crafty way to add colourful dimension to stamping. Have a wonderful time at CHA - I'm not jealous, really I'm not lol I'll just have to make do with watching everyone's youtube uploads again.
