Fussy Cutting with stamping + Video Tutorial !


This is Ujjwal bringing you some fresh inspiration and making an attempt to help you get started on stamping and letting the fear go away.

If you are new to stamping and you might find it intimidating to stamp directly on the card base, for if you don't get it right, it will be difficult to salvage. Fussy cutting is a technique that can rescue you. Simply stamp your images on a separate piece of paper and fussy cut them and them figure out the placement on your final card.

Today, I created this card using the same technique and I also have a video sharing the process.

I created the background with distress inks and little mist of water. Super simple and easy and packs a punch.

I often, also stamp the insides on my cards and I love mixing and matching stamps. This sentiment is from a floral stamp called "Peony Love" but I love how it goes well with this beach scene as well.
