Welcome to Day #2 of the Virtual Retreat!  Our challenge is based around the theme of “Getting There!”  I was stumped for a minute, but then I got this idea…view the video for this

Handmade card with Patterned Paper

How adorable is this sneaker from My Favorite Things?  Like I said in the video, I’ve had this die for a while and was a bit intimidated by it.  Too many parts and pieces!  Right?

I was wrong, it came together in a snap and is so stinkin’ adorable, I think I’ll be having more fun with this die in the future.

I’ve seen the Stitched Duo 1 Die by Pretty Pink Posh used on a ton of shaker cards.  It’s a fabulous die for using with patterned paper, too!  It adds a fun element to the card, but gives great peeks of pattern awesomeness.

I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial?  Looking for even more inspiration?  You’ll find it at StampNation’s Virtual Retreat!
