5 Great Tips for Using Stamps & Co-ordinating Dies + Video!

Do you like to use co-ordinating stamps and dies….. did you know that there are ‘more’ ways to use them than just to ‘cut out’ your images?

Welcome back to another Take 2 With Therese, this is my video series for Altenew and if you missed any of my previous videos you can check them out right HERE.

I was playing with the Fragile Foliage Stamp Set from Altenew today and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share some tips for using co-ordinating dies as well as a couple of card techniques.

My first card design features a faux embossed background.

I white heat embossed the images and

added the Bold Thanks Die sentiment.

My second card features a debossed background.

And a sentiment from the Apothecary Labels Stamp Set.

With just a swirl of Antique Gold Thread too….

  1. These are both beautiful, elegant cards. The debossing is a great idea. You’ve shown how wonderful this stamp set is.

  2. Both cards are lovely. Thanks so much for sharing the tips for creating them. I’m anxious to look for stamps and dies I have to give this try. Love the effect!

  3. Catching up, Therese … and enjoying all your recent awesome inspiration, as ever! These are so elegant, delicate and gorgeous … they’re both so lovely! Great tips … and the idea of debossing is brilliant … it really gives those delicious green stems pizazz! Yep, my cards evolve too … they never quite come out how I thought they would! Hugs, Anita 🙂
