Today, Melissa Phillips is challenging you to get edgy with your stamping!

“I’m challenging you to switch things up just a bit and stamp along the edge or side of your card for my DT Tips today.  Letting your images hang off the edge is a fun way to change the look of your cards and allows you to use your images in a whole new way.  Stop by my blog to see a few samples of cards I’ve made using this simple technique.”

    Melissa, your creativity blows me away. How you mix up multiple stamp sets and techniques are amazing. This card is a perfect example of that, and I love the off the edge look. Thank you!

    I love how Melissa always seems to combine stamps from 3 or 4 or even 5 different sets to to make her cards.

    I’ve loved the cards and the gorgeous blends images and colors shown yesterday and today. Melissa has convinced me I need the Gathered Garden dies to go with my set.

    I can pick your cards out before I even see that you did them. Your technique is so different and wonderful and I just love all the things you make. Todays lesson is such a simple thing to do yet it has a big impact. Love your projects Melissa and so glad you are with such a great company that puts out beautiful stamps and accessories to go with them.
