Jen Carter Amaze Me Side 3.1

First up is a fun new set called Rat Race!  Oh my!  This is such a fun set, and so unique!

I stamped the maze image on patterned paper and then cut the words out of the front panel with the new Mixed & Stitched Alphabet Dies.  The rest of the sentiment was stamped from the Rat Race set. 


An easy way to line up your die cut letters on your cardstock so that they cut exactly where you want them to is to use repositional tape.  Just attach your letters to the tape where you want them and then position it on the cardstock panel.  My favorite tape that I found for this is Scotch Matte Finish Removable Tape.  The only place I can find this tape is at Hobby Lobby in one of their center aisles with the office supply products.  Very rarely does it tear my cardstock like other tapes do.  

Jen Carter Happy Spring Flowers

One last card for today.  This one uses the new Spring Flowers dies.  I used both sizes of the largest flowers and attached them together with a fabric covered brad.

I bent each petal slightly upward and curved them to give the flower dimension.   The sentiment is from the new Spot on Spring Stamps.  Every time I see that sentiment I hear Phil Robertson in my head: happy, happy, happy! :)






Thanks for visiting this week! I have quite a few other projects I've created with these new projects that I'll be posting soon, so be sure to keep a look out if you'd like to see more samples!
