January Inspiration by Patty

Happy New Year everyone! I hope your year is starting out with some fun makes with Cute As A Button digital images. I am using " " for my inspiration demo. I am going to show you how to cut your stamped image 'outside' the die! This is a fun way to add a little eye catching emphases on a stamp. In this case I chose the baby bump! 
First I chose the dies I would be using for my project. 
Then I made my die cuts!

I chose white and red  to accent  my colored image!

I lay my oval die over my colored digi stamp to determine when I would be hanging my image outside the die. I use a light pencil mark to determine where I will be making my fussy cutting with scissors.
  Next I made small cuts along my image lines to place the die for cutting.
By cutting along the image lines you can slip the die behind the portion of the image you want 'hanging' outside the die cut.
 I completed my fussy cutting and erased any pencil marks that were showing.
 I chose to pop my image over the bottom die cuts with foam dots!
 A closer look at my finished card!

I hope you will give this a try! Have a great day and be sure and check out the new stamps a CAAB!
