Using Dies as Stencils with The Perfect Reason SOA

Using Dies as Stencils Catherine PoolerWe all love our dies…cookie cutter dies (the ones that cut out images) and stand alone dies like you see here.  This Perfect Vine Die premiered last week in The Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval Collection and is amazing as a stand alone, taking center stage on a card or it works great as an accent, an embellishment or peeking out from behind one of the flowers in The Perfect Reason Stamp Set.

When I started making this card, my plan (oh, my plans!  we all know how plans go!) was to stencil the leaves, remove them, add a greeting and BAM!  “you're done”!

A Clean and Simple Card.

But then I though it would be really fun to add the leaves back on, ever so slightly off center and I love how it looks!

Either way, you've got a great card and a great way to stretch your stamps!

I'm loving this sponged, stenciled and splattered background!

Traditionally, we don't show a photo of all the contents of the collection because we all love surprises.  If you watch my release week videos, you WILL see all the products, but you won't see them all together…just adds to the fun and surprise of it!  Hundreds of SOA Collections have gone out and lots of ladies have had their Christmas morning…so I thought I'd post a photo of the contents for you here  (plus I've seen sneaks of it on IG and FB)…so here ya go!
