Hi everyone!  Samantha here today with an expected way to use a product. I knew I wanted to use the Round the Block die with some of the smaller images from the Magical Christmas and Christmas Miracle stamp sets. The snowflakes and ornaments fit perfectly in the circles. The ornament card was the first one I made: I traced the circles from the Round the Block die onto the white background paper so that I could stamp all of the ornaments. I erased the circles and...

I've used the poinsettia stamp from the Christmas Miracle stamp set twice and masked them...

I ran the die over the alcohol ink background through my die-cutting machine, ensuring that it does not cut through. I then stamped the poinsettia image from the Christmas Miracle stamp set on vellum cardstock, and fussy cut them. I stamped the Magical...
