Layered Die Cuts

Today’s video and blog post show how I Layered Die Cuts for a really interesting effect on a card front suitable for anyone really. Here’s my completed card:

Layered Die Cuts

Now, although I’ve added ribbon and rhinestone jewels to the front, you could easily add some stamping say from Timeless Textures to make it look more masculine. Add a strip of Black Shimmer or some Burlap Ribbon  or Linen Thread for a totally different look. Try using the Wood Textures DSP stack instead of Color Theory. The possibilities are endless. Watch the video to see how I achieved this effect:

Here’s a look at a side view so you can see the layers better:

This photo shows the ‘shadow’ layer on the bottom. Don’t forget your layers don’t have to match up perfectly and your card will need some gentle persuasion to line up as you adhere each layer.

Embossing Paste Glitter

I just love the effect this Embossing Paste Glitter makes for card backgrounds. It makes a simple card look glitzy and glamorous. The post I did previously had a Video tutorial on how to achieve this technique which is really easy. You can see it here.

You’ll just love Stampin’ Up!’s new Embossing Paste. It’s easy to use. There are many different techniques which it can be used for and many different paper craft projects including cards and scrapbook pages.

Embossing Paste Glitter

I decided to use another new product with this card, the Pretty Label Punch, or as a friend calls it the ‘Cloud’. With the addition of some reconfigured Rhinestone Jewels, it just gives the card some more glitter and is a great way to add the sentiment which comes from Balloon Celebration. The Tranquil Tide ink and card base make this card just glimmer with glitz.

Split Colouring

Today’s Video brings you Split Colouring. This is a great technique I only just discovered and felt sure you’d enjoy it too. It yields 2 card fronts for you to add to card bases and is relatively easy for you to do. You will need a stamp which has a large image, I’ve used Birthday Blooms, some Clear Emboss Powder and your Stamp-A-Ma-Jig as well as your Watercolor Pencils. Here’s one of the samples I made using the Split Colouring technique:

With the addition of embossing and colouring with your Watercolor Pencils, you can easily accomplish this technique. Watch the video to find out more:

Now here are the measurements:
  • Card base 21cm x 14.8cm score and fold at 10.5cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ score and fold at 4 1/4″
  • Layer for the Split Colouring measures 14.3cm x 10cm or 5 1/4″ x 4″ and you need 2 of these – 1 in Whisper White or Very Vanilla and 1 in a coordinating colour
  • Cut each layer at 7cm or 3″

You’ve Got Style

Remember the Glossy Faux Watercoloring technique where I dropped ink onto the card and used a Stampin’ Spritzer with alcohol in it? Well here’s the second piece of card front made combined with You’ve Got Style.

You've Got Style

You’ll need to watch the video to see how the background was created. The ribbon bits were scraps from other projects and they matched and fitted perfectly on this card. I’v coloured the image with a Blender Pen and Watercolor Pencils.

Stormy, Stormy Night

This Stormy, Stormy Night card is the result of the Glossy Card Technique I shared recently using Reinker and Rubbing Alcohol in a Stampin’ Spritzer. You can see it the post and video here.

This card front reminded me of a stormy night at sea, quite a few of which I’ve seen whilst waiting for my husband to return from fishing, on the South Coast of N.S.W. Then my mind went to High Tide and the lighthouse. The idea for my card was born, so to speak.

So this is how I created the lighthouse element:

  • Stamped sand in Soft Suede
  • Stamped Grass in Always Artichoke
  • The birds, both on the sand and in the sky, were stamped with Basic Black Archival Ink
  • The Lighthouse was stamped in Basic Black first and then Real Red
  • I’ve used the Whisper White Craft Ink Refill and  Blander Pen to add extra white to the white areas of the lighthouse.
  • The beacon of light is stamped in Peekaboo Peach

Both the Lighthouse and Beacon elements were stamped on Whisper White card and hand cut, then adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.

Give the Faux Watercolour on Glossy Card a try. It’s messy but lots of fun and you never get the same background twice.

Freshly Brewed Fresh Florals

Welcome to another Blog Hop with the Latte Girls. This week we’re bringing you Freshly Brewed Fresh Florals.

Each card is made in one of the 2017 – 2019 In Colors and I’ve tried to give you a look at each pattern in the paper stack which is 12″ x 12″ and you get 40 sheets: 4 each of 2 double-sided designs in 5 colours.
