Stretch Your Stamps 2 Day 5 and 6

Day 5 and 6 at  Online Card Classes was about stretching outline stamps.  The stamps used were floral stamps (not my favorite).  I CASEd Jennifer Rasa's card where she debossed her image and then stamped and watercolored it.  I was trying to do an easier way than she did by using Stampin'Up!'s Backyard Basics that come with dies to cut out the images.  If I had it to do over again I would stamp first and then emboss with the die.  It was hard to stamp perfectly in the embossed image.

Stampin'Up! Backyard Basics. Picked Raspberry and Evergreen Bough Distress Markers on Stampin'Up! watercolor paper.  Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Close to My Heart A Flowering Bunch sentiment heat embossed with Zing White EP.  

Happy Crafting!
