Cut and Paste is Challenge #269 at Shopping Our Stash!!!

Thanks to Chana I'm heading way, way out of my comfort zone, it's not that I don't have the equipment but no stamping and colouring is foreign to me. Shopping Our Stash  #269 is Cut and Paste......use stencils and dies only....NO STAMPING.  Here is my offering for the challenge.


So many firsts on this card....first time to use the Hero Arts Large Lotus Pattern stencil and technique, first time using the Impression Obsession Die they have both been in my possession for at least a year. First I spritzed the white cardstock with Dylusions purple ink spray when dry I sponged Spun Sugar distress ink over the flowers.


I cut the purple vellum that I found at a yard sale 4 years ago, then I cut the inserts for the flower and leaves from scraps of shimmer paper. Wow I paper pieced it!!! Cut and paste is what we want.


The Hello was cut with a Cuttlebug die plate (it's ancient) and seeing how Chris has layered a word sentiment on top of a black one to give dimension  I just needed to try it. Wow another first. 


Inside of the card using a scrap of purple cardstock from my stash...a sentiment will be added later.

I am entering this in:
Hiding in my Craft Room #266 Super Scraps Saturday.(everything except the base was a scrap)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will join Shopping Our Stash for "Cut and Paste" Don't forget to check out the blog and see what my teamies have done for the challenge.
