Let’s Chat–A Cut Above Assignment!

Hello, Stampy Friends!!
Let's Chat
I spent this afternoon crafting with a friend, and boy did I have fun!  I was also pretty productive, so that always makes me happy.  I have a card to share that I created as my assignment for the die cutting online class that I’m participating in.  Today's assignment was to create a project with a window using die cuts.  Coincidentally, this week’s A Blog Named Hero Challenge is the same thing – BONUS!!
PRODUCTS USED:
STAMPS:  Just Saying Hi (Hero Arts), Say What (My Favorite Things)
INK:  VersaMark and Onyx Black VersaFine Dye Ink (Tsukineko)
PAPER:  Lily White CS (Bazzill Basics Paper), Dots & Stripes Homefront Collection (Echo Park), Summer Sunrise CS (PTI)
ACCESSORIES:  Speech Bubbles Die (X Cut), Black Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts)

Here are the graphics and links to both challenges:

That’s it for me today, kids!  I hope to be back with my die cut card assignment tomorrow.  In the meantime, have a great night!  XO

Beautiful Card! I love the speech bubble diecut. The colours are a lovely combo especially the polka dot blue paper. That phone stands out against the paper. Love all of it.
