Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Good Monday Morning!  The idea for today is to "think outside the box, in this case the oval.
I used the musical clef from the Hero Arts Clings set. (a two stamp set, the music background also is in this set)

on how to achieve the image appearing outside of the die cut.

This is the completed card.  I ran a piece of black card stock through an embossing folder and mounted it on a piece of red card stock on a white card.  I stamped the background music stamp several times and cut it out of the scalloped oval nestie.  I stamped and embossed the musical clef in Versafine Onyz and clear embossing powder.  I then used this technique to die cut the oval, leaving the top of the clef  sticking out above the oval.  Leaving the die cut in place after cutting, I sponged Barn Door distress ink over the inside, which leaves the outer edge white.

Here's a close up of the ovals.

This close up shows the top of the clef outside the oval.

The sentiment is by Hampton Art Stamps.  The inside of the card finishes the sentiment, which says, "and sings it to you when you forget the words"

Hope you have time to try this technique with your die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Monday.  Until later..............
