Here are my cards for the next class. This class is about adding detail and dimension with die cuts. I love using die cuts to create cards. This is one of my favorite techniques to use, so when this class came along, I had a hard time deciding what to make, as I had so many ideas.
The plan was to create one card (this is always my plan) but one of the embossed die cut-colours didn’t work with my stamped colours, so, another card HAD to be made. 😊
- Altenew – Dainty Bouquet Stamp & Die
- Memento Black Ink (great ink for bigger solid stamps)
- Altenew Dye Ink – Misty Morning, Nimbus, Lagoon, Emerald (flower)
- Altenew Dye Ink – Citrus Burst, Fresh Lemon, (blended ink die cut and border)
- Distress Oxide Ink – Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet, Tattered Rose ((blended ink die cut and border)
- We R Memory Keepers Embossing Folder, Gemstone
These cards are really simple. I took a lighter weight cardstock, blended some ink colours and tore it into an oval shape. I took this piece and die cut it using the dainty bouquet die, and with both die cut pieces together like a puzzle, I embossed it with a beautiful gemstone embossing folder.
The first lifted die cut oval was blended with a pink/purple ink, which was made for the blue-green layered flower from dainty bouquet stamp set, but the colors didn’t work together. So I created another one in blended yellows which worked perfectly.
Now I still had this pink/purple die cut and embossed piece and HAD to create another card, but this time I stamped one layer of the flower in black. This worked perfectly!
Both die cut ovals are lifted with foam tape. That was time consuming – getting all those little pieces of foam tape on those thin areas of the die cut.
I wish the camera could have caught the embossing little more, cause with the naked eye, it really does pop!!
This is another class down. Catch you at Irresistible Inking Techniques
