Hi there! Laurel Beard here thrilled to be back with the super folks at The Foiled Fox.  I have always loved the Being Classy Stamp set and coordinating die from Concord & 9th and today I am going to show you three cards you can make using this one stamp/die combo! 🙂 I am guesting with the sweet folks at The Foiled Fox again today! Be sure to check out their blog too because there is loads of inspiration over there as well!

Ok! Let’s take a look at the three cards I made! First up, a clean and simple layout with a splash of mint watercolor on the stitched panel background!!! I heat embossed the “thoughtful”  with white embossing powder and then used the coordinating die to cut it out. I love the black outline from the die… Dug out a piece of twine (oh if you could see what my daughter has done to all my twine, lol)…. Attempted to tie a bow and voila, the first card is done!

My second card utilizes just the stamp set. I lined up all the words on my MISTI and then stamped it in a black waterproof ink. Then I watercolored on a few different bright colors! (Please note all the supplies I used are linked below and available at The Foiled Fox).

And lastly, I created a wash of watercolor and then cut out a little speech bubble shape and popped that up with some foam dimension. Then I stamped the sentiment and the coordinating “kind” die and adhered that to the watercolored panel. If you look closely, you can see the word “kind” in that watercolored background. I had stamped that but didn’t like it so spritzed it heavily with water to blend it out… LOL! I like it resulted in some very faint text in the background there…

So there you have it.  Three cards using the same stamp set and die!  I’d again like to thank the folks at The Foiled Fox for allowing me to guest with them from time to time. 🙂 I already have two more guest projects lined up to share over the next few weeks so I’ll see you again! :):)
