Guest Blogger: Debi Adams, Beauty & Elegance Stamp & Die Set

Hi friends! Did you know that Spellbinders now carries a selection of stamp and coordinating die sets? We began introducing them in March of 2016. Today I want to show you a card I created using the Beauty & Elegance stamp and die set. Because the dies line up with the stamps, you will be able to cut the image out perfectly every time with a lot less work and better yet, no scraggly edges.

To create the card above you will need the following supplies:
