Friday Die Day

Hello friends
This week Friday Die Day has become Friday 3D Stamp Day!
I wanted to show you a project using Pine Trees.
This is a striking stamp and the approximate
stamp size is 2.75" x 4". 

 The stamps cling perfectly to an acrylic block.
Tip: first time you use them to help prepare the surface of the stamp
so it doesn't repell the ink, lightly sand with very fine sandpaper. 
After that, you never have to do it again (more details in the video below). 

For my background I die cut a piece of watercolour card using 5 x 7 Matting Basics.
I chose Antique Linen distress ink, dipped a paintbrush in water first and then
added ink in a swiping/wash design.
I then inked up the 3D Pine Trees stamp with Momento Rich Cocoa
and stamped once.
Affixed twine with a bow to the left hand edge.

My card base with Anna Griffin paper.
Typed and die cut sentiment to bottom edge of card.

Affixed stamped panel with Crafty Foam Tape.

Finishing touch, mini poinsettia (5 x 7 Holly Frame set) and tiny leaves.

For more details and inspiration here is the Spellbinders 3D stamp video.
The 3D stamps are now available to purchase from your Spellbinders retailer,
it certainly makes Christmas card making quick and easy!
Take care friends - have a super weekend.
