Well just a couple of cards for you today as I managed to just have a "play" in my craftroom instead of "working" (!!!!) on my projects for a change!
I saw a couple of lovely videos on You Tube by Jennifer McGuire (Jennifer McGuire Ink) and Lydia Evans from Altenew ( Lydia Evans Designs).
I subscribe to a few channels and every now and then find time to have a mooch through and see what's occurring in the crafty world and I saw how to make some lovely cards using die cutting and stamping.
So I did!
My first card is stamped using the Altenew Beautiful Heart stamp and coordinating die set and it's layered with enough "gappage" to make it see-through!
This next one is stencilled using the fab feather stencil from Studio Light, (which I used this week on the Hochanda samples). I die cut the letters from a feathery patterned paper and layered them onto more die cut letters in a cream cardstock for the shadowy effect.
I used the already die cut feather paper for this card and layered it onto cream cardstock again but just offset it a little so the cream just shows behind the letters. No wastage here!
This last card was made using a floral panel die which I die cut 3 times into the lilac card then trimmed it all to fit the card front. I added the tulip stamp to a wonky rectangle card then wrapped some vellum around the bottom with the sentiment stamped onto a stitched circle die cut.
I entered this one, and the first one, into the online card challenge over at Cardmaking and Papercraft.
Hoping you all have a good weekend, whatever the weather!
