Sweet Stamps- Anything Goes with a SweetCuts Die*

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is to use a new SweetCuts Die ***See Note Below***

 
For the flowers, I used my Parchment Stylus Tool and 'conditioned the cardstock'. What you do is lay the cardstock flower on a soft mat. Beginning in the center of the flower, use the tool in a circular motion and the cardstock will soften and the flower will 'pop'. I sponged Dandelion Shades Die Ink onto the top die of the flower and added Micro Beads to the centers in adhesive.


***Since SweetCuts are such a NEW product - they were just released this month - we know not everyone has them {yet}, so to join in our challenge this week you may also use a Cheery Lynn Designs die. And to sweeten things up, you can get 10% Off all SweetCuts dies with this coupon code: sweetcuts10 which is valid thru next Monday, May 27th ***
