Die Cutting, Embossing and Inking Memory Box Dies…

by Pam Sparks

Embellishing die cuts is so fun with inks and stamps!  I have a video for today’s post showing you how I emboss and ink die cuts.

I used the Chesapeake Circle and Precious Butterflies dies, cut from white card-stock.  The LOVE stamp heat embossed on black card-stock.  The card base is a MB Lagoon A-2 Notecard.


Here’s another video I made last week but I didn’t get a card made to go with it after -all.  This was my 3rd try and I was happy with it until I got it off the camera and watched it!  The blooper is at the end. haha.. boohoo!  Oh well, there might be something on here you’d want to try so I’m sharing it!
