How are you all?
I am extremely pleased to have been invited as a Guest Designer for the May CAS Challenge "Inlaid Die Cutting" at Happy Little Stampers!
This technique is perfect for adding interest to your card without adding any bulk. I had lots of fun making these two cards!
Stamps: Impression Obsession (rose background), Uniko (sentiment)
Die: WPlus9 (heart), SSS (banner)
I die cut the heart from a panel, heat embossed the background in gold, sponged it with Distress Inks, laid it back into the panel, and taped everything on a card front. Added the heat embossed banner and some Glossy Accents to look like dew drops.
ETA: Loll suggested that I enter this card in this month's
CAS Mix Up Challgenge
My card features stamping, heat embossing, and die cutting.
And the second card:
Stamp: SSS (sentiment)
Die: SSS (you)
This technique is also perfect for those very delicate dies that are difficult to glue down. Here I used a watercolored panel (not the one from this post but created at the same time), cut out the "you", die cut it also from a piece of gold card stock, put it in the green panel and attached it to a card with foam tape. Before doing that though, I stamped the rest of the sentiment and added some gold splatters.
A heartfelt thank you to the folks at Happy Little Stamper CAS challenge for inviting me to be a Guest Designer! Check out what the fabulous Design Team came up with and then play along! Hope to see you in the gallery!
