Hi! It is Lisa here today and I have a fun card that not only looks beautiful, but can really play tricks on your eyes, check it out…
With the use of a technique called Inlaid Die Cutting I was able to add my sentiment in the middle of my image, while keeping the entire image intact! It’s so cool, and I love the results every time I do it. The trick to this technique is making sure you keep all of the little pieces that go back into the die cut. I keep a piece of washi tape close by to attach those smaller cuts to, so that I can continue to work on the rest of my card without accidentally knocking one off.
Now the specific stamp set I used is by Winnie and Walter and is called Mini Scenery: Bed of Roses, and is currently out of stock, sorry! But you are still able to put your name on the back order list if you wish, or there are other ways to achieve this same look. Simply mask off a rectangle area, or any shape you wish, stamp the area with a background stamp and voila. I then colored the image in with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers (Lilac HB1, Hydrangea HB2, Fruit Pink PP5, Denim TB3). I love the dreamy color blend I was able to create with these markers. Finally, I diecut the thanks by Lawn Fawn and adhered the word with foam adhesive over the negative cut.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you’ll give this technique a try!
