I spent time in my studio re-arranging my stamp sets! I moved the
Christmas sets out, excluding Seasonal Bells, and brought in all the new
The second stamp set from the Spring catalogue I wanted to use
was the Tie Dyed (see photograph 6) which co-ordinates brilliantly
with the Custom Tee Stamp Set (see photograph 7).
Dyed is a two-step stamp set and contains a total of eight stamps. As soon as I
first saw this stamp set, I’ve wanted to stamp the two background stamps,
one on top of the other, in two co-ordinating colours and then stamp a
t-shirt design on it! I

stamped the masculine short sleeved t-shirt from the Custom Tee Stamp

die cut the t-shirt image using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits
Dies, and layered it on to a Scalloped circle die cut from the Layered
Circle Framelits Dies.
This was then adhered onto the card front. The
sentiment was adhered to a narrow piece of Whisper White CS and I cut
the ends off parallell to the ends of the punched shape. I then adhered
this to a wider piece of of Tip Top Taupe CS, which I adhered on the
