EZ-De' Stamps by Ann Butler

Hello and Welcome to another creative day of card making.  I would like to share a card today showcasing a borderless stamp by Ann Butler Designs.  I used the EZ-De's Easy Design Elements by Kellycraft stamp.

I used the 1" Rail Fence Set to anchor my die cut window onto my card.  This Rail Fence Stamp Set has unlimited options and I really enjoy the 7" length to the design of this bar code type of stamp.  The 7" truly gives a great deal of flexibility from card to layout and off the page stamping opportunities.
So, lets get start with this card tutorial.  I usually collect all of my supplies after some testing of ink colors with paper colors and sentiment greetings.  Once I feel happy that they will all work I get stated with a sketch and its like magic putting the card together.

I die cut my window using the Spellbinders ### die.  I selected Core'dinations Cardstock from the Whitewash Collection and used the A2 card from the Core Card Pastel collection in the Dahlia color.  Edge distressed my white mat and sanded the matt to have the inner core show through the white wash.  I flipped another mat over and used the colored side as my front panel for stamping.

To start with I decided to take out my Kellycraft ruler which I have had in my tool cupboard  for a while and thought this would work well with the Ann Butler Designs border-less stamps.

Got things line up and inked up my stamp with Ann Butlers ColorBox Crafter's Lilac Ink.
Next I got out my Westcott Brand Scissors and improvised the matching 2 flowers blooms.  I had to take one bloom apart and create a bud and smaller bloom from the original.  Cutting the wire with Westcott Brand scissors worked well.

Once my Ann Butler 1" Rail Fence stamped impression dried I was able to stamp an image and sentiment onto the card and embellish my card.   Here is a final look at the finished card featuring the 1" EZ-De's stamp by Ann Butler.
