I just got an alphabet die set by Memory Box from Simon Says Stamp. The letters are all in one piece so I wanted to cut them from the black cardstock that way. I soon discovered though that two of the letters were upside down so they would fit better so I did cut them to arrange them correctly. I quickly put my new die into use with the Tuesday Trigger and the inspiration piece at Simon Says Stamp challenge.
Everyone is using the negative of cut out letters these days so I needed to get in on that great looking technique. I just placed colored cardstock behind the letters using a wonderful color combination piece. Since the inspiration piece used white also, I just didn't put any cardstock behind the letters for "hi", giving me a title for my card.
Here is that adorable inspiration piece. I want to just print this out and frame it, that kitty cat is so gorgeous.
And, here is the Tuesday Trigger. I kept with the black of the typewriter with all of the black cardstock that I used on my card and then I thought the colored behind the cut out letters looked like the colored typewriter keys.
And, I used the Colour Q combination for this card. I pulled out a set by Hero Arts that includes stamps and matching dies. These sets are my new most favorite, it is so easy to cut out the image with these.
I used the score board to score the lines on the white cardstock that makes my grid. The embossed card base is Core'dinations cardstock. I used some great new stamp pads by Clearsnap for the flowers.Here is the Colour Q combination.
And for a couple photos...
This is our youngest grandson and our two doggies. He isn't supposed to feed them his snacks but he just can't help himself and they know he is an easy prey. They are waiting for him to drop anything!
This is his way of feeding them and pretending he didn't mean tooooo!!! We do have to laugh!
