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.

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.

How to Use Your Dies as a Stencil

After the past two weeks, I am so ready for Spring here in Texas! I have lived here all of my life, and I have never seen the whole state get clobbered by snow and ice, much less have the power grid fail! We were lucky and only lost power. We were able to stay with a family member until the power was restored. No pipes or water issues, BUT we didn’t have internet for over a week. It’s so hard to type a blog on a tiny phone screen! 🙂 Enough of that, let’s check out this card I made for club last month.

The Simply Succulents Bundle was the 2nd on my wish list (those Hydrangeas are sooooo gorgeous, so that was my 1st). I also ordered the Blending Brushes that were just sitting on my desk begging for ink! This is what I came up with! I love how the colors contrast against the white space of the stenciled image.

All you have to do is cut out a stencil using the large die from the Potted Succulents dies with Basic White cardstock. (Really any color works, but I am using the colored stencil for another card!-BONUS) I did place some washi tap on the edges so it would not move too much while I was using the Blending Brushes. These Brushes are SOOOOO SOFT! I almost want one for an emotional support tool! You just swirl in the ink color of your choice and then swipe in a circular motion on your surface. They wash out with little effort! I used Rococo Rose, Mint Macaron, Soft Seafoam, and Rich Razzleberry to make the colors blend and resemble succulents.

To complete the card, I just stamped on coordinating cardstock colors and cut them out using the rest of the Potted Succulents dies. I wanted a soft focal point behind the cut outs that wouldn’t compete too much with the gorgeous background. The Stitched Shaped dies are a must, I use them all the time! I used Vellum Cardstock with the Circle to make the soft back drop.

The Butterfly Brilliance Bundle is now available for customers to order today!! And it’s my Creative Kit of the month too! I just love the colors they chose for the Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP paper! BUT it’s while supplies last-so grab yours today!!!
