Have you ever heard of the Inlaid Die Cut technique? I like to call it the die cutting puzzle! I have done several times on cards over the last few months but this is my 1st time on a tiny intricate die like this one called the Trefoil Tile & Panel Card Creator.
It was fussy, but SO MUCH FUN! and the result is awesome. First I cut the lattice style die from the February Small die of the Month in black and removed all the little pieces. It was adhered to to the sweet berry cardstock layer.
Then I die cut the same lattice in white, carefully popped out the tiny pieces, a few at a time, and adhered them into place. ( I saved the white die cut for another project). Take a closer look!
The card is finished off with a hot pink foiled glimmer sentiment and some more white die cuts for the small die of the month. This card was definitely a labor of love and I can’t wait to make a few more!
Like the other Spellbinders clubs, this is a subscription-style club. You can skip months, add on other clubs, and so much more: Details of how it works HERE.
Spring is most welcome here as we are digging out of over a foot of snow mixed with ice!
I went with bright yellow and the Spring/Summer Season Wreath set from Stamp Simply! If Easter is not your thing- Just swap out the sentiment! This one is so simple you could easily make a few in a bunch of colors!
Colored with just a few copics markers. For added details – there are few extra black dots I made with a thin sharpie and some clear Nuvo drops. The Craft Consortium – 6×6 – Bright Blooms paper is full of spring prints and lots of colors of polka dots!
Although I did not use these sets there are plenty of Easter/Scripture choices at Stamp Simply. Check them out HERE.
Slimline cards have been around for ages. I made them when I first started stamping many moons ago. I just added a new Slimline Scallop Die Set to my collection. Here are a few cards I created this past weekend.
There are lots of companies that make a slimline scallop dies for cards, This particular Scallop Frame set is from Simon Says Stamp. First up is my favorite (and most used) Bear with the Largest scallop frame.
The last step was stamping the sentiment in black ink and adding pearls. A perfectly clean and simple sympathy card. There are 3 sets in the Sympathy Series. You can purchase them separately or as a bundle.
