CTMH Technique Blog Hop: Thincuts

You should arrive from Kirsten’s blog. I hope you are inspired by her project 🙂 Today I am sharing a card that I created using Springtime Wishes stamp set and matching Thin Cut set.

Happy Birthday

I stamped each image from Springtime Wishes with Slate Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad. And then using with the matching thin cuts, I cut the images by running them under my WRMK Evolution Advanced diecutting machine.

Before I arranges those flowers and leaves, on a piece of Watercolor Paper, I added some light Sorbet Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad using aquash watercolor brush. I speed the drying by using the Craft Heater. Once the watercolored background dried completely, I added the flowers and leaves using adhesive runner amd 3D foam.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed one of the sentiment from Joyful Birthday stamp set with Ranger™ Princess Gold Embossing Powder on a strip of Black Cardstock and added it on the card using 3D foam tape. I finished the card with some clear sparkles.

A tip for you: after you die cut the shapes, do not throw away the negative because use can use it as stencil 🙂 I will post a project using this tip later.

How about more inspirations? Here are other cards I created with these stamp set and thin cuts for January Technique blog hop:

  1. What a pretty card, I really like the contrast of the gold embossing on black paper for the title. Also, thanks for sharing the tip about using the cut out as a stencil, great idea that I will have to try.
