Technique Tuesday Blog Hop...

Good afternoon and welcome to the Technique Tuesday Blog Hop. 

Today I am joining demonstrators from around the World to create a project using Die Cutting Techniques.  I wanted to create a project which uses die cuts in different ways, not just for cutting.

I started with a piece of Gray Granite cardstock and die cut the circular die from a scrap of card.  I then used the die cut as a stencil, sponging Gray Granite ink through the stencil.  I then mixed up some Frost White Shimmer paint with a drop of Gray Granite ink and sponged it through the stencil again.

I cut the die shape from a piece of Vellum cardstock and attached this to the card.  I then stamped and coloured the butterflies using Stampin' Blends.  The strip at the top has been coloured using Stampin' Blends on to Basic White cardstock.

I hope you like my card today and it inspires you to use die cuts in alternative ways.  You can follow the hop by clicking on the individual participants.

All of the products I have used in making this project can be purchased from my online shop by clicking on the links below.

Happy Stampin'
