Wow, I knew that the Grand Clibur was large but I did not know that four dies could fit on a plate. Thank you for showing the same stamp four different ways, that sure adds life to a stamp. Thanks for sharing.

I have had Spellbinder dies from the beginning and was lucky enough to take a class from Stacey at CHA. I love how the stamps cordinate with her dies and are such a great addition to various types of projects. Can't wait to own several stamps sets or maybe all!

Love the stamps that coordinate with Spellbinders dies. I already have some of them.

Jan Scholl said...

I am not asking Santa for anything because there is no way to package up months of warm weather and put it in my stocking. I need to pull out my H2Os. I bought them when they first came out years and years ago. Been a while. So where do you think they are? Since I have no clue!

Karen said...

I loved the cards. Thank you for the inspiration and the opportunity to win. Happy Holidays!

Hugz, Karen in FL

Julia said...

Love your project, so inspiring, & love all the different looks with one stamp. Love the lacy squares die, very pretty.
I don't know when you sleep, or if you do, lol, BUT, don't want you sick again, besides you have to take care of Kevin, :).
Anyway, great job as always.
