New Two Layered Die Cutting Technique

We were on our Mother’s Day Craft retreat last weekend when I stumbled on this by accident! I will apologize now if this has been done before, but I haven’t been able to find one yet.

I wanted to use the Meadow dies make some watercolor flowers to put on a card. I ran it through with Stamp Cut & Emboss Machine (SCEM) and thought it was a little more difficult than normal. When I took out the watercolor paper, I then could tell it was 2 pieces. That is when it hit me what to do! I played around with other cardstocks with different thicknesses.

For this card, I used a piece of Crumb Cake (dry embossed with Tasteful Textiles) with a piece of Thick Basic White on top. Next, you will lay your die on top of the two and run it through. DON’T separate the two pieces afterwards!

Now you can color the top part (leaving the top Basic White complete) with makers, Stampin’ Blends, Blender Pens, or watercolor. The best part is that you don’t have to be neat about it! The magic happens when you pull off the Basic White piece to reveal the gorgeous raised creation!

To create the background, I stamped the words from the Quite Meadow with Crumb Cake on the Crumb Cake card base randomly. Next, I used the splatter stamp with Soft Suede and finished it with a few splatters of Wink of Stella. I cut out the sentiment using the Dual Oval punch.

Here is another card that I made using the same technique! I hope you enjoyed this fun technique!

Cheerful Perennials

I am so happy to finally have spring here with all the beautiful flowers, green grass, and baseball worthy weather! I was hoping that this Pretty Perennials bundle would carry over to the NEW 2021-2022 Catalog, but sadly it is not. (Be sure to add it to your wish list, or should I say, get it now list)

I was jumping down the Pinterest rabbit hole and saw this color combination! I chose to use the True Love DSP and used the polka dot side for the background. Next, I used Versa Mark, White Embossing Powder, and my Heat Tool to make the sentiment pop!

One tip when stamping your images for this set: Stamp the outline first-I used a darker or full strength color which makes it easier to see while stamping the solid stamp on top. A quick assembly of the bouquet, some bling, and then a small second sentiment finish this card off!

Very easy card to make multiples of! Sadly I need to make more thinking of you and sympathy cards right now. Please stay safe!

Floating Inlaid Die Cut Shapes

Are you looking for a cool technique? Do I have a treat for you today!!! Inlaid Floating Die Cut Shapes!!! You could also use a stamped image that matches the die cut as well. I have seen quite a few of the these on Pinterest, so I had to make one! I want to throw a shout out to Alicia Tilsner for her guidance!

First off you will need a Window Sheet cut to 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ & 6 strips of coordinating DSP cut to 4 1/2″ x 3/4″

The card in the video uses a Basic White Thick card base & a Basic Black piece big enough for the biggest butterfly die. (From Brilliant Wings dies) I cut the pieces to 4″ x 2 3/4″ plus an Adhesive Sheet with the same measurements.

Check out the video for tips on how to create your own!

I loved the handwritten look to the sentiments in the Borders Abound stamp set. I cut a 3″ x 1/2″ piece of Bermuda Bay to stamp “hello” on it.

Be sure to get your supplies through me by using the Host Code for March 2021! I will send out thank you gifts to those who order using this code! Be sure to subscribe to my newsletter too!

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

How to Use Blender Brushes

I have gone a little overboard with the new Butterfly Brilliance bundle these past couple of weeks! If you are into butterflies-this bundle is a must have! I promise to share my creations! But this one was super quick to make with the stamp set being ONE big stamp and the dies are welded together. That way they line up perfectly and they all cut out at once!

These Blending Brushes are amazing! So much that they are unavailable for just a bit. I promise they are worth the wait!

  1. They are buttery and velvety soft beyond what I imagined!
  2. There are 3 in a pack for just $12!!! Economical!
  3. They clean soooooo easy! Most of my ink was rinsed out of the bristles with just a little Dawn dish soap and water. I dried them some on a dry towel and let them air dry overnight.
  4. You can actually use the same one for different colors with out it leaving residue from the previous color. (if you haven’t washed them yet)
  5. To make the ink look soft on your surface: apply the ink and with a circular motion, add to your paper.
Butterfly Brilliance

To create this super simple card, I inked up the whole butterfly stamp with Basic Grey and stamped onto a piece of Basic White paper (3 3/4″ x 5″). Be sure you have one full image of a butterfly to adhere the inked one on top of. I stamped it again on another piece of Basic White-and then cut it out with the dies. I then used Misty Midnight, Rococo Rose, and Balmy Blue to shade the loose butterfly. I love the added Wink of Stella on top to add more pop! I also used Seal on the back of the body, Dimensionals, then more Seal on the edges of the wings. That way it stay arched when you lay it on your cardstock.

I used Smoky Slate for the card base (A2: 8 1/2″x 5 1/2″) and a mat of Basic Grey (4″ x 5 1/4″). The finishing touches are a sentiment and a few Basic Rhinestones.
