To paraphrase poet Joyce Kilmer, there is nothing lovelier than a tree, which is why I went ga-ga over this beautiful Spellbinders die (Just Swingin’) set that includes a tree silhouette as well as a swing, etc.
My cards with these aren’t the greatest, so I debated whether or not to even show them. But since I AM the imperfect stamper, I decided to show my work, warts and all. (My later experiments were much better, but I mailed the best one without taking a photo. Sigh.)
So … here we go:
The next one was the actually the first that I cut, and you can see that I just made a mess of it. It was my practice shot. I didn’t leave enough room on the edge, the paper ripped, the colors barely work together… oh, it is sad.
But what the heck. I trimmed a bit, layered a bit, and stuck on a butterfly to hide the flaw.
Thanks for stopping by…and for not judging too harshly!
