Core'dinations and Stampendous

Now check out what I created using Core and stamps and dies oh my ......

Stamping has always been something that fascinates me and I have an absolute TON of stamp sets but find that I don't use them near as much as I should or would like to !!  I was excited to work with these 2 'new to me' products from Stampendous.

I started by choosing my cardstock and stamped the large floral image onto 2 different colors 3 times each.  Once the ink was dry I got out the new thin metal die set that coordinates with this floral stamp - VERY COOL !!

It comes with 3 different images that are different sections of the flower .... I laid each die out where I wanted it and then used my magnetic shim and ran it through my eBosser.  These dies cut like a dream through the Core'dinations cardstock !!!

I started my card base using a piece of Core'dinations creme cardstock and embossed it using a large 8 x 10" embossing folder.  I added a small piece of patterned paper for some color and a phrase sticker too.  These pieces are how I chose the color of my cardstock flower.

Once I had all the other pieces in place I started to layer the flower using 3D foam.  It came together beautifully and I even have enough flower bits left over to make another card !!
