Stretch Your Dies - Day 5 - Coordinating Dies

Yesterday was day five . . . already . . . of the course 'Stretch Your Dies' . . . I can hardly believe it!  Day five was, 'Coordinating Dies' and I chose Shari Caroll's technique.  It is difficult to explain in words, but basically, you kind of highlight a coordinating stamp and die with an acetate window, by stamping the outline on the window and cutting a piece of patterned paper with the die . . . does that make any sense to you as a reader?  The best thing I can do is to show you the card and let you work it out for yourseves!

Supplies used:

MFT - Pierced Circle Stack
WPlus9 - Pretty Peonies Stamps & Dies
SSS - Friendship Messages

As always, thank you so much for your visit today and for any comments you leave, they always make my day.  Have a lovely weekend.  Hazel xx


  1. Wow Hazel, this technique turned out beautiful! I love your card, such a pretty one. The papers are just beautiful and I love the die you used for this technique. I'm going to have to dig around to see if I even have any dies and stamps that are a set. lol Yes, I'm still behind and hoping to get caught up this weekend. I plan on following your lead and just doing one of the techniques for homework. Hugs, Brenda

  7. Totally makes sense to me since I am taking the classes too! Haha! But I do love your card. I like the black ink on the acetate--gives it a different look. Pretty!
