Just Buggin #19 - Stamping!

It's time for another Just Buggin Challenge! This week we're stamping! Last week was my off week, but here I am for this week!

Challenge #19 - Stamping Fun - Stamp on your project!

I love to get my inks out and dress up my die cuts with a little shading, etc., but this week I decided I'd actually stamp a decorative swirl on my die cut!

My tip on the blog: Try using patterned or decorative stamps to give your die cuts a whole new look and texture!

Here's my card with a little stamping on the leaf cut outs! I used my brand new Gypsy and the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge for the leaves, and my Big Shot for the bird. It was a really quick card to put together, and I love the swirls on the leaves! (I promise all those greens actually do match in real life!)

Hope you'll play with us this week at Just Buggin!
