My  steps for making this project

Die Cut Masking

Place Masking or Painter’s Tape on the clear platform

Die Cut Masking

Add your die or dies cutting side down on the tape and run it through your Big Shot with the other clear plate on top. I’m using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies.

Carefully lift off the tape and you will be left with your die cut in the shape you wanted

Place a post-it note to help position your die rather than drawing a line

I placed post-it notes on the underside of my A4 Glossy White Cardstock so I didn’t need to place my fingers on the card

Use the Sponge Brayers to sponge on colour, rolling over the die cut until you are happy with the colour.

Use different colours to create like an ombre effect. Here I have used Blushing Bride Classic Stampin’ Pad, Berry Burst Classic Stampin’ Pad and Melon Mambo Classic Stampin’ Pad. I added some Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack and some Pearl Basic Jewels

My tips and tricks for Die Cut Masking.

Die Cut Masking

Use a good quality Masking or Painter’s tape and try to get one which is a good width and will take may different sized dies

You also want a tape which is not too sticky that you can’t lift it off your card.
