Designer Series: Just Hatched with JJ Bolton

Hi there!  It's JJ stopping by the Mama Elephant blog with a card I made with the adorable new set Just Hatched!  Seriously who doesn't love baby animals?  Plus this set has a bunch of sweet little sentiments to mix and match.

The moment I saw the teeny animals in this set, I knew I would use this technique.  Replacing a letter with an image is a favorite technique of mine and the animals in this set are the perfect scale to work with the Inline Letters dies!   This technique is super easy to do with just a little bit of planning.  The first step is choose your stamp image.  The image should be a similar scale of your letters to work best.  I usually lay out my dies with the stamp and do some practice cuts to play with spacing and make sure the letters are straight.  Once you've got the spacing correct, tape your dies together with some low tack washi tape or repositional tape.

For this card, I used some patterned paper with a cloud design.  (I'm trying to get better at using my patterned papers;)  As a little detail, I die cut the top edge of my die cut panel with the clouds die from Landscape Trio.  Here's a little close up of that cute chickie:)

That’s it for me!  Thank you so much for stopping in!

Mahalo and Aloha,
