    I’m back with a question; with this set, do you find it better to die cut and then stamp the images? Or stamp and then die cut? Or die cut with a template? I’d appreciate the help with this question.

      Hi Cindy,
      It is really up to what is most comfortable to you with stamping. Some prefer stamping first, then die cutting, so long as the dies are “open.” Others prefer die cutting, then stamping because many use a stamp positioner. We would recommend you trying both methods to see what you find works best for you. We find that not all stampers are alike. The key is to try new things and most of all, have fun along the way! Thanks so much for your comments!

    Well, Saturday got a whole lot more fun! This is another series to look forward to. I loved each style and use of color but if others are like me, water coloring would be one I would like to be more proficient. Ashley provided amazing instructions and I truly felt like she gave these flowers life and lovely details. This was a great stamp to showcase many possibilities.

    You 3 have started my Saturday with gorgeous inspiration! I don’t have this set–how many floral sets does one need?! Apparently the answer for me is one more–haha!

    Thank you for giving us a wonderful lesson in water coloring. It was great to see that we can water color over stamped images and to be reminded that perfection is not the goal. I really appreciate the video! I truly love your stamps and dies and am really looking forward to Papertrey Ink’s new focus.
