Trends Challenge - Using Dies or Punches

I'm back with another Trends Challenge!

I used the simply amazing Dies that are now available from SP & Company! This set is called Certified Awesome and I used the coordinating stamps from the Certified Awesome and Certified Awesome Additions sets.

Die cutting makes my life sooooo much easier and I simply love it! With die cuts, my projects look so clean and professional.  Oh, and it saves me so much time!

I also used two of the new SP Premium (Chalk) Inks! I am not kidding when I say I am in love with these ink pads! I used Ocean Waves and Clownfish for this project.  The inks coordinate perfect with the other "SP in Color" items, like the buttons that are available now.

To create this card, I stamped everything first, then die cut using my Cuttlebug.  I sprayed the base of the card and used a heat gun to dry it quickly.  I added the die cut with foam adhesive and some bling for that extra pop.

I hope you'll play along with the Trends Challenge for a chance to win $25 to the SP & Company store!
