Truly Grateful

 Happy Monday All!
I have a tip to share with you today. It's not a new one, but if your new to stamping, you might enjoy it. Notice the white outer border around the oval?  Here's how I did it:
  • Stamp the oak leaves from Lovely As a Tree Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink.
  • Stamp Truly Grateful from Truly Grateful Stamp Set in Jet Black StazOn.
  • Cut the stamped images using the Oval Framelits die using the Big Shot.
  • Leave the stamped image in the die and lightly sponge the outer edge with Sahara Sand Ink and a Stamping Sponge.
  • When you remove the'll have a sharp, outer border.

  •  Did you know that Lovely As a Tree is Stampin' Up! best selling stamp set? With a variety of trees to choose from, the Lovely As a Tree set offers so many options. Stamp a solitary tree or stamp an image multiple times to create your own forest.
