This card is for today's SCS Feature Stamper Challenge(FS183)! Congratulations, Vicki!  Here is Vicki's card I chose to CASE!  I am using one of ODBD newly release sets called Harvest Blessings and one of two new matching stamp set die cuts.  This die cut is called Large Sunflower Die.  I put together a mini picture tutorial just to show you how these dies are so amazing and different from anything I have seen! 



The image to the left shows the stamped sunflower garden that has been colored already.  It also shows the green tinted die cut guide and the Sunflower diecut.  You can click onto the picture to see it larger. 




NOTE:  The green tinted die cut guide actually peels away revealing a clear guide.  However, I chose to leave it this way because me and clear do not get along very well.  You can decide, but I like the green so I can find it easily if I set it down.  Also, wanted to add that some of the peel aways are not green.  The color varies from the manufacture.  The die cut guide is clear once the film is peeled away.



The image to the right shows where I have placed the green tinted guide

over my colored image and lined it up where I want to cut.  The image on the left shows where I  used a marker to fill in the registration circles on either side of the guide. I chose blue so I could see the marks easily once I removed the guide.

I remove the green tinted guide and place my large sunflower diecut over.  I lined up the blue dots that I colored in before.  I added yellow arrows so you can see.  I then die cut the image.  Notice that this die cut has tiny holes in the back that allow the very detailed cut image to release easily.  Awesome detail!




The image to the left is all of the product with the die cut cut out.

Below is a close up of the sunflower diecut on my card.  I used dimensionals so I could have a popped up sunflower garden.  LOVE that!  Easy Peasy and Beautiful!  I am so excited about these die cuts! 








This card is also for Friday's SCS Free 4 All Challenge(F4A24)! I went with a sunflower garden! It is also for ODBD Shining the Light Challenge(ODBDSLC24)! We are to use three of something. I chose to only use three words of my sentiment. I masked it and just used Blessings to You!

As always, thanks so much
for stopping by!
