Sometimes I don't notice a product in the catalog until enough other demonstrators are using it. The Picture This Dies was one of those die sets for me. Why would I need it? It cuts holes out of a piece of cardstock. Then what?? That magical moment happened, though, when I saw some CU-ET cards made with these dies, and most of them were peek-a-boos...images peeking out through the circles or rectangles. Heck, even Stampin' Up!® showcases these dies that way on their website!
Enter: the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog Last Chance list and a vote by my followers on Facebook to choose the All Bundled Up stamp set for me to use during What's Up! Stampers last Wednesday. It's a super cute stamp set, right?
How adorable would these animals look in the peek-a-boo frames made by the Picture This Dies? I figured the moose would be too big, but the others would be perfect, I hoped, and they were. Because of time constraints, I left the What's Up! with the card completed this far, with the promise to color the animals and add a sentiment before posting it later in the day on Wednesday.
And when I posted it, It looked sooooo much cuter!
Ack!!! Seriously! How can these animals combined with that die be so incredibly perfect for each other?? And, of course, just one thing was missing...the moose. So what better idea than to use him on the inside, where space wasn't such an issue?
I used the Stamparatus to get the animals lined up just where I wanted. You can watch my process here.
