stamp with die cut

Hi everybody,

No I didn't stamp with a cutting die, but I die cut using foam to create a stamp.

I like Hero Arts Floral Heart Stamp & Cut by Lia a lot, and I don't want to just use the die cut on my cards.  So I die cut a piece of foam with the cutting die, stamp with clear embossing ink and heat embossing with powder on watercolour paper.  Then I added some watercolours onto the panel, but I didn't like how it turned out.  So.. I cut the floral heart out and use it.

This is the original piece:

And here's the finished card with just the floral heart cut out:

I added a banner and embellished with a few sequins.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle.

Thanks for stopping by, I wish you a lovely day!

Love your final card, Cindy--gorgeous! I have so many stamps I haven't made a foam one from a die, but it's in the back of my mind that I could.

What a great way to save your watercolored panel! I love how the colors peek though the pattern on your heart, and your sentiment banner is perfect! Another gorgeous card, Cindy!
