When I have a creative block, I find it helpful to watch other people do the stamping. That is why I love YouTube! Stampin' Up! has their own channel featuring great projects with some of our latest and greatest products.
I loved the Doily Die when I first saw it in the Occasions Mini Catalog, but wasn't sure what to do with it. I had also planned to demonstrate the use of this die in my "Cards to Die For" class and I was running out of time. This video came to my rescue.
I was trying to use only the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper on my cards for this class, so I did alter Carrie's original design. My customers loved it, even though it was a more-involved card than we usually do in class.
