Die Cut Fun!

I don't consider myself a card maker however I have been enjoying making cards the last year or so and I have a few more share in this post.

The lovely Virginia cut a couple of die cuts for me with the Altenew Dodec Cover Die* one in black and one in white. I had a grand idea to foil one of the die cuts and EPIC FAIL is all I can say about that one.

I layered this die cut over Elizabeth Crafts card stock I inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers and then splattered with water to get the light areas:

Silver, white iridescent and clear sequins hightlight the die cut, a Tim Holtz phrase sticker popped up with foam squares and accented on either side with Nuvo glitter drops complete this card.

This next card began with these Ken Oliver Color Burst backgrounds and the My Favorite Things Circle Scribbles die:

The white die cuts were pieces I cut out of white foam which I did not use, I glued the die cuts made from these watercolor backgrounds directly to a white piece of card stock die cut with the Elizabeth Crafts Stitched Rectangles die*.
The solid stamped images are from the My Favorite Things Circle Scribbles stamp set which has the coordinating die I used for the die cuts.
The 'thank you' sentiment is from the Altenew Oriental Orchid stamp set.

Dies can be used in more ways than just accenting or cutting out stamped images as you can see here.
