Stampavie Challenge - Die Cuts anyone?

It is time for the Stampavie Challenge! And this time we get to play with our die cuts! We all love them, we all have a ton of them, so this is pretty easy challenge this week -

Me... I used my Nesties - :0)
I started with the the Sugar Cookie Bazzil Card stock, matted some GORGEOUS Websters Pages. These normally would be papers I would put into my stash and pet once in a while ;0) But I am trying hard to use all of my pretty things and not hold on to them forever. So I matted them onto black cards stock that I have distressed, then sewed together. These papers are so gorgeous that I knew I didn't want layers covering them, so that was it, then I went to work on the Die Cuts and what image I wanted to use.

Noel Joy seemed perfect to match the papers. I colored with my Copics, then cut out with Nesties Labels 17, and inked the edges with distressing ink. Matted with the black card stock distressed. I then wanted it to have a vintage snow look to it, so I sprayed the image with Smooch Spritz - Vanilla - I think I like how that came out.. LOL

For some added "Die Cuts" I cut out one of the Fancy Tags - cut it in half and used it as a sort of decoration behind the image. Then added some fun embellishments. Black metal adhesive dots.

 
For the bottom of my easel card I did it all over again, except this time I used the JustRite sentiment "Fill Each day with Joy" - Seemed to really go well with the Stampavie Sarah Kay image "Noel Joy" -

So now pop on over to the Stampavie DT Blog and see the other DT Die Cut cards and join us for some fun!

Joy is so sweet posting her mail. Love the Smooch look here. I know what you mean about horing and not using all our pretty stuff. I think if I just used what I have, I could go a year (or more) with out a trip to my favorite stores! But what fun would that be? Have a wonderful week. Hugs....
