The House That Stamps Built: Pick of the Week

It is my week over at The House That Stamps Built to do the
 POTW-Pick of the Week.  I wanted to share some of my stamping tips
that I hope will make your crafting easier for you.
To line patterned paper up to match a full sized A2 or any size card
front, lay your card front in the corner of a Scor Pal or Scor Buddy
and then match your paper up starting in the top left corner, works
every time:
To cut out words and intricate dies layer a piece of wax paper, your
card stock and then your die.  Cut as you normally do: 

The paper and all the little pieces come right out of the die:
When die cutting an image, leave the die on and sponge the edges: 

When you have a spare 5 or 10 minutes or are not in a creative mood cut your card stock,
leave some in half sheets and scor some into ready to go cards:

Now these pieces will go together quickly into cards, on this card I used
I embossed it in white and then colored it with Peerless
Watercolors and added my die cut Hello. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
