Die Cut Swing Card - A Splitcoaststampers Tutorial


I've done a tutorial for Splitcoaststampers...woo-hoo.  I was delighted when I was asked to do one.  The tutorial is titled 'Die Cut Swing Card'.

This is the card that I created for the tutorial.

And yes, I've done a similar tutorial for my own blog--which you can find HERE--but as you probably are aware most of the tutorials/templates on my blog are for my preferred-card-size of 6" x 6".  This tutorial I did for Splitcoastampers is for a 5½" x 5½" card, which is also a preferred-card-size to a lot of people.
You can check out the Splitcoaststamper tutorial HERE.

And the written instruction comes with a video tutorial.  Yeah, a big shocker...even to me.  I did my very first video tutorial!  It just goes to show that this old gal isn't too old to learn new things...tee hee.  Still feels weird hearing my own voice though--you know how that is!

This adorable image I used is from Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet and she is called 'Amy'.

The stamp is available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.

Check out the rest of the Wee Stamps Collection HERE and of course Magnolia stamps, both full-size and mini.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  
Check out also the stamps from Wild Rose Studios and Candibeans.
Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStampsMagnolia Doohickey. and other crafting tools such as Scor-tapes, Prima Chalk Edgers, flowers, etc.  Have a look!
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and what's more, you get to earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.  Sweet!
