Hello everyone,

There is two things, that work great for me in papercrafting: stamps and dies. But what do you do, when you don't have the right stamps, to go with your dies? Sometimes, I like to transform my dies into stamps. At least, to give the impression of a stamped image.

I have this adorable Fox Face die from Sizzix. The ''cheeks'' on the fox are perfect to create leaves. Using the masking technique, nail striping tape and some ink, I created these beautiful ''stamped'' leaves. I simply love the result. This is a great way to use your dies. Just experiment!

If you like colouring or to stamp , but you don't have any stamps, Sizzix can help. If you check out Sizzix on Facebook or their website, you will find amazing free colouring papers.
