I would like to thank the wonderful team over at Cut It Up Challenge for selecting my card as one of the Top Three.
Hello and welcome
Welcome back to a new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers – Anything Goes with Dies – November. I hope you’ll join in the fun this month!
My card this month features the beautiful Poppystamps Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame and Stencil set, which I was lucky enough to win! Thanks!
As it only arrived today, I thought it would be fun to play.
To begin, I smooched some card with Distress Inks (Festive Berries, Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade) sprayed with some shimmer water. (Made by adding some Perfect Pearls in the water spray bottle). The smooching was done in layers, drying each before adding more colour, until I was happy with the result.
It was then time to cut the die 3 times – 2 in white and 1 from the coloured piece.
Now it was time to inlay the die cuts. After gluing the main coloured piece onto the card front, the white cut out pieces were glued in place.
From the larger white window piece the ‘Thanks’ die from Winnie & Walter – The Big, The Bold and You Cutaways was cut, along with one from black card.
These were then inlaid onto the card front.
To finish, I flicked some of the colours across the card front.
From the last white die cut, I removed a large full maple leaf and after smooching it in the inks, I added to the front with raised tape.
Time to head over to our blog to check out the great work by the rest of the Design Team! Good luck with your entries!
