Layered Die Cuts

Welcome to the weekend, my friend! I’m posting on a Saturday to share my project for today’s Scrap ‘N Stamp Daily Challenge. Today’s word that I chose is cuts, as in die cuts. So for my project I decided to do a layered die cuts card.


To start, I decided to use the Tim Holtz Doodle Art Thinlit for the background. It’s full sized, so it covers the entire card front. Start with a piece of white cardstock, and blend on some Distress Oxide inks. I chose Cracked Pistachio, Dusty Concord and Spun Sugar.  After blending the inks, lay the Thinlit over the cardstock, and run it through your Big Shot.  With these detailed background dies, I find that I have to run them through several times, to ensure that every area cuts through.

Next, stamp the Diamond Sentiments stamp from Poppystamps in Versamark ink onto another piece of white cardstock. Cover the ink with gold embossing powder, and heat set. Now you’re ready to colour the leaves and flowers. I used Copic markers in YG25 Celadon Green, YG07 Acid Green, and G03 Meadow.  The pink if from Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Bright Pink marker. The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in dark pink. I like this Diamond Sentiments set, because it comes with the coordinating Die!

To finish off the card front, wrap some gold thread and tuck  it in behind the Diamond Sentiment. Glue the die cut background onto a light green card base, and then add the sentiment with foam squares or tape. The final touch is to add some Brutus Monroe Acrylic Bubbles.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
