Painted Labels Mat

This is a neat trick I found on Amanda Bates‘ blog.  She showed how to make a mat for the largest rectangular die in the Painted Labels dies:

  1. Cut a piece of cardstock to 8.3 cm x 5.3 cm or 3 ¼” x 2 1/16″ to make a template.
  2. Cut the largest rectangle Painted Labels shape from another piece of cardstock.  Place this on the template piece and trace the rounded corners.
  3. Use the ½” Circle Punch to cut corners. Mark your completed template piece with measurements for future use.
  4. Cut your mat cardstock, and lay the template on top.  Trace the corner curves or simply hold in place and use the ½” Circle Punch to cut.

​I store my template with my dies so I can find it easily.

This design, that I also CASE’d from Amanda, was so quick, easy and fun that I did a second one in another colour:

Which colour do you like better…Highland Heather or Seaside Spray?

Here’s what I used to make these cards:

I am introducing a new format for my Monthly Card Class.  I will provide a kit and written instructions to make 5 cards.  Participants will be able to add sentiments as desired with their own stamps and inks.  Kits can be picked up from my residence using safe, social distancing protocols, or I can ship via Australia Post tracked satchel.

This past Saturday I held the Stamp With Me, Get It Free: Under My Umbrella class using this method and it worked quite well.  Come give this a try – perfect if you’ve always wanted to try my classes and can’t attend in person!
