A big congrats to Trudy, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I really did case her card..even though it may not look like it. I loved the color in the bg w/ the die cut on top so that’s what I kept. I used different colors, dies & sponging instead of brayering.

I took a few extra pics to show you how I got the color in precise areas & left a white highlight.

First, I attached the black die cut to the white card stock w/ temporary adhesive (pic above). Then I used the makeup brushes to apply the colors in specific areas.I didn’t worry about getting in on it since it’s black, I knew it wouldn’t show.

You can see the negative white image when I remove the die cut. I started to use it just like that, but then decided it added more drama to put the black die cut back in on top, but I shifted it slightly, to leave a white highlight on the right side (pic below). I like how it resembles stained glass.

The birthday greeting is part of a balloon image & trimmed off the balloons after die cutting it & attached it to an oval frame.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge this week (IC755), we’re headed to A Cottage in the City (or their Pinterest Board). After much back & forth, I couldn’t decide which I liked more..THIS or THIS..so I combined the two. I used the wood plank wall from the first for my background & the flower in the bottle for my main image.

For the background, I stamped the wood grain fence in gray ink then sponged on the lt blue, antique linen & gray inks to resemble the different wood planks. It looked a little too bright & new, so I took some thinned down white acrylic paint & dry brushed it on top & also spritzed some to get the drops.

On the main image, after stamping the flowers, I masked just the one lower petal & stamped the bottle. I used a Copic multiliner to extend the stems. I also took a couple of quick pics to show the basics of my out of the box die cutting method. You can also see the original tutorial HERE. 

Align your die where you want it to cut. Use a craft knife to cut around any areas that will go outside of the die cut boundaries & lift them over the die. You’ll have to go into area inside the die just a bit, but if you cut right on a thicker black outline, it will be almost invisible. Or in this case, I cut the top petals, then slid the die down under these areas. Now run this thru your die cut machine. Since these petals are on top of the die, they won’t be cut off.

All cut & it turned out perfectly! I wanted it over to the side like this to give me room for the greeting. I ended up putting it on a separate piece & I used the craft knife to cut a slit down the side of the bottle & tucked the left edge of the blue greeting flag into the slit.

Here are the Copics I used:

Congrats to Gloria, the newest Featured Stamper (FS690) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & flower theme, but I used different images, dies & swapped out the stripe paper for a stamped woodgrain.

After coloring the daffodils, I die cut it first w/ a rectangle stitch die then used the bottom half of a marquee die to cut the lower section. I took a few picture to show how I did this.

This is the die I used for the lower half. I used the largest die because I saw that it was large enough to go all the way across to sides so I placed it where I wanted the bottom cut to be.

After placing the image panel & die on top, I put the top plate on top, but only to the point where I want it to stop cutting (which is halfway up the die). By having the top plate stop here, it will only cut to that point.

Here it is after die cutting! I do this technique quite a lot, so it doesn’t matter to me if I’ve colored it yet or not. If you’re trying it for the first time, you may want to wait to color until after you’ve cut it, in case you need to start over because it didn’t work the way you wanted. For the lower part of the card, I stamped the woodgrain bg w/ the dark green ink.
