  1. Well, that is very unique. Has a real homey look to it. Rustic elegance. A whole new genre!

  2. Dee Ann Matthews

    Wonderful job creating a striking fame and rooster!

  3. Awesome Jeanne – such a great way to get unique die cuts. I have to try this.

  4. Your card is perfect for a French friend… ;-)) ! Your coloring is really great, going crazy is a good idea !!!!

  5. I like how you made the background with the combination of the two stamps. This is a cute card for any occasion.

  6. Hi, I love the way you used the colors for your mat and cut your circle I have that die but
    never thought to do that. Thanks.

  7. What a great way to use all those crazy technique papers we all have. Love!

  8. Oh, what a clever way to use up works of art that need a new purpose. I think this card is so charming. I love that rooster, too. Thanks for the inspiration.

  9. I love this idea of die-cutting scraps of art! I will be trying this technique! Thank you for the inspiration! If I win the prize, I might choose this oval die. It is beautiful!

  10. What a great idea… Adorable card… those dies are awesome.. love that the rooster and frame tie to gather from the same paper…. thanks so much for sharing and the chance to win.

  11. Wow! Great use of the die cutting, and a marvelous way of sizing everything together so perfectly! Thanks for the tips about using the “left over” paper for die cutting! While the regular size Misti is already in my tools, and dearly loved, I can now see that the mini Misti would be a fun addition as well! Thanks for the tips!

  12. Love your colorful card and especially your clever use of rejects!

  13. Wow…what started out as a mess really turned out great.

  14. LOve it!

  15. what a great way to use scraps of painted stuff, your cockerel is absolutely fab, well done

  16. What Great colors! Makes for a lovely card.

  18. So pretty!! Love the frame and the rooster!!

  19. Awesome card! I am seeing lots of IO images I “need”

  20. Lovely and unique.

  21. Very pretty fall those colors!

  22. Very fun card… I love how a tossed aside scrap turns out to be just the perfect addition! Love how the wide stroke stamp pulls it all together, too!

  23. I have so many projects that have gone south and this is a great idea to use them with die cuts! I keep them stashed away and sometime I bring them back to life. Other times I throw them away. Now I have another idea on how to use them. Thanks for the inspiration.

  24. Hey Jeanne, this turned out so great. Stuff happens when we are crafting but usually I can make it work on SOME project. I love how this looks!
