Samantha Walker Creative Team Blog Hop




Welcome to another Samantha Walker Creative Team Blog hop- Each month I am in awe of the fabby creations this creative team comes up with! 

Today I have a  card to share-

For you!  The sentiment and yellow circles are from the Life is Beautiful set available through Unity Stamp Co. The paper is from Samantha's Heidi line at Creative Imaginations.




And for those of you haven't yet tried the Grand Dies...
here's how easy it is to make a card using them!!

 This is the largest of the LF-127 Grand Scalloped Square dies from Spellbinders.  Simply place your card stock, or patterned paper as shown here in the die and run it through- (this is what it will look like when it's done)  Simply fold in half and you are ready to go!  I love how these turn out!

 To make the top layer of my card, I used the #3 die, (#1 being the smallest of them) and just die cut the paper using just the bottom half of the die.  Since I am lining it up with the top of the card, I don't need the scallops on the top part. Shaped cards are an easy way to mix things up a bit!


Make sure to head on over to Samantha's blog- I believe there is a giveaway! ;)

Next make your way over to the Nancy's Bloghttp://mypaperview.blogspot.com/2011/05/samantha-walker-blog-hop.html!!
