Tuesday Tip/Technique

Hello friends
Today is a little tip moving on from stencilling through the dies,
again I know many of you may already do this so forgive me if 
I'm teaching you to suck eggs!  
(No idea where that expression comes from - any ideas?)
I've cut/embossed Labels Twenty Two, kept the die template in place and inked 
around the edges.
Still keeping the die template in place I've stamped straight over the top,
the stamping wipes off the die with a baby wipe/damp cloth. 
A nice effect with a contrasting plain border/edge. 
It swiftly got made into a tag...well, silly not to! 
 I have a real fondness for script stamps but try it with scrolls, florals and more.
I currently have a large stock of assorted stamps available here.
The felt flower is Jewel Flowers and Flourishes - another favourite of mine!
Take care friends.

Great tip today Christine, thank you, and your tag is really pretty!
Is it me being thick, or have I missed your appearance on the Spellbinders June Jamboree? I've been clicking and searching, but can't seem to find it 😳
Have a nice day.

Great tip-will put this on my "to do list" which seems to be never ending. Pity I don't have a never ending amount of crafting time-all seems to be work time.

Morning Christine, This tip is fabulous, I love how effective this looks, especially with the white edge. People who don't know this tip, would take a while deciding how it was done (or would that just be me hahaha !!). I love the finished creation.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

What a great idea, Christine. I would never have thought of stamping with the die still in place, so on a personal note I'm more than happy for you to keep posting such helpful hints and tips. xx
