using stamps with coordinating dies

I love it when paper craft manufacturers provide customers with time saving products. Our time as women is precious, and anything that can help us to use that time more efficiently should be taken advantage of!

Not only does Echo Park Paper Co offer crafters beautiful clear stamps that coordinate perfectly with their paper collections, but they also offer coordinating dies for some of those stamps and that just plain rocks! I mean who has time to sit and fussy cut stamped images? Check out how I used some coordinating dies and stamps on this fresh spring card. (Scroll down for a link to a free printable instruction and supply sheet for this project.)



I found some inks that matched the colors in the new Sunny Days Ahead collection, stamped my images, and them simply placed them all in my Evolution Advanced "sandwich" and ran them all through together. Boom! Instant custom embellishments!


I also stamped a cute sentiment and simply cut that with my scissors into a banner shape. Easy peasy! And it goes perfectly with the paper collection I used.
