Stretch Your Dies Day Six: Border Dies

Hello Everyone,
Today at Stretch Your Dies the focus is border dies. The techniques demo'd are all great, but the one I love best is by Laura Bassen - she is so talented and I love her videos... she is just so real. She used a curved edge border die to create a stencil or mask. The she did her sponging  magic.

Of course I had to try it out. So, I used my supply of acetate to create a stencil and die cut the edge using a "hill" die from PTI. I masked and sponged with my go-to Distress Inks and here is the result:
I cut the sponged panel I made down and adhered it to the white cardstock. I die cut the "Hugs" from white cardstock and from black fun foam - I offset them slightly when I glued them together in order to create the shadow effect. I also mounted the whole panel on a fun foam mat and adhered it all to the card base. I love the way this card turned out. 

Thanks for stopping by and as always, I love to hear your feedback, so feel free to leave a comment!

Happy Stamping,


  1. Wow, great job! I love how you used black fun foam behind the hugs. The sponging is great!

  2. Beautiful job! Isn't this class a lot of fun?

  3. Great job! Love your sponging, and the black foam behind the die cut is a wonderful idea!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
