I really enjoyed the “clean and simple” online card class I took earlier in the year, so jumped at the chance to join “a cut above” – a class concentrating on die cutting.

Day 1 starts by looking at dies with co-ordinating stamps. Happy Trails is one of my all time favourite sets from Papertrey Ink and comes with a set of stamps and matching dies. I combined the bird from the set with some chipboard and papers I had out on my desk from another project.

Supplies: Stamps – Papertrey Ink happy trails; Inks – Hero Arts shadow ink wet cement, Amuse grass; Paper – Studio Calico abroad collection pad; Chipboard – SEI chiplets playday; Die – Papertrey Ink happy trails

Here’s a close up so you can see how well the stamp sits on the die cut.

Well, I’m hoping to play along each day with this course as much as time allows, so these posts may be brief. Until tomorrow :)
