How to Create Texture Using a Die Cut

Hello everyone!! I’m here today to show you how to create texture using a die cut from Technique Tuesday By the Numbers Crafting Die.

Let’s take a look:

I love this By the Numbers die! It’s bold and full of space in between the numbers. Creating this card was simple.

Here’s how:

Simple die cut the numbers die 3 times out of white cardstock.

Then cut a 4th piece out of We R Memory Keepers Urban Chic patterned paper.  Adhere them all together using Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive.

Cut the Neenah Solar White card base to 4.25 by 11 scored at 5.5.

Cut a second piece of the same Urban Chic patterned paper to 4.25 by 5.5 and adhere it to the top of the card base.

Line the die cut numbers strips with the stripes on the card base and adhere.

Beautiful texture!

To finish the card off, stamp the sentiment from Technique Tuesday Flowers For Mom stamp set inside using Versamark Ink.

Sprinkle Altenew Pure White Embossing Power on top and heat set it.

Flowers for mom stamp set

The font for this sentiment is my favorite.  It’s bouncy and playful.  It goes will with the front of the card.

Super quick and easy.

What do you think? Will you try adding some texture to your card front? I would love to see what you create!

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 191 - Washi

Take a look at my card:

Washi (CAS)

I’m so tickled by my card.  I love how the numbers look like they come with the newsprint on them.  Its Washi Tape!! I used Tim Holtz’s Symphony Tissue Tape and Penny Black By The Number Die.

To create this card:

  1. Add 5 strips of washi tape to white cardstock.
  2. Use the die cut to cut the washi cover cardstock.
  3. Adhere the die cut to the cardbase using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

Nice and simple!

I was having so much fun, that I had to create another card.

Enjoy Washi (CAS)

This time I used some new watercolor washi tape that I picked up from Michaels. I love this tape.  So super pretty. I have to say that I’m super luck to have this set of washi tape.  I hear everyone saying they can’t find these.  I might have to search them out and pick up another for a giveaway, maybe!!

washi

To create this card:

  1. Add two strips of tape on the bottom of my card base.
  2. Use Simon Says Stamp Painted Enjoy Die to cut one word out.
  3. Adhere it right above the washi tape with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

Nice and easy clean and simple card!!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

CASology – 175 Pie

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card is :

Week 175 - Pie

Take a look at my card:

Pie (CAS)

OMG!!  You can’t get any more Clean and Simple then this!!! I love it.

When I saw the cue card was pie, I knew I didn’t want to use the food pie because that was typical. So I thought about pi in math class.  I was going to draw the symbol but I can’t draw and that would have been a disaster waiting to happen.

So I went with the next best thing!!  The actually number for “pi”.

To create this card, I die cut a scrap piece of ink blended paper with Papertrey Ink Sew Stylish Number Die Collection. I used Tombow Multipurpose glue to adhere the number to the card base.   Nice and easy.

So what do you think?  Did I inspire you?

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

CASology 160 – Number

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Cue Card for you!!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 160 - Number

Take a look at my card:

Numbers Birthday (CAS)

Can you believe I still have pieces of watercolor paper that I created weeks ago?  I do.  I love it.  It makes my card making process so much easier!!

Here is how I created this card:

I used the Penny Black By The Number Die and die cut the numbers out of per-created watercolor paper, seen below.

Watercolor pieces

I adhered the die cut numbers to my black card base with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I used Your Next Stamp Birthday Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment on vellum.  While the sentiment was still wet, I added Stampin’ Up! Clear Embossing Powder. I heat set it and it gave the sentiment a glossy look.

I flagged the vellum and adhered it to the numbers with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I used the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to rounded the top corners.

Easy Peasy!!

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Count Me In…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today playing along with Lawnscaping Challenge 94: Count Me In!!

94

This challenge asked us to use numbers somewhere on our project!  Boy was I excited to see this challenge.  I have so many Lawn Fawn numbers stamp and dies that I’ve haven’t used yet.  I was excited to pull them out.

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve had so much fun creating tags and gift boxes.  So for this challenge I wanted to do the same.

I create two tags for this challenge.  The first one I created yesterday before I even knew about the challenge.  I wasn’t sure about this tag because I felt like something was missing in the top right hand corner.  So I put the tag down.  After seeing the challenge this morning I decided that I will add a number to the corner.

Happy Birthday tags

Take a closer look:

Happy Birthday tag 1

Look inside:

Tag 2 inside

What do you think about this tag?

For my second tag, I wanted to use my die cuts to cut out the number and use he negative space.  I really love how this tag turned out as well.

Back To School!

Hello everyone! I’m here with a2z Scrapbooking today.  Our month long challenge is still going strong.  The theme is Encouragement!

We are in that back to school season, which I love, as you already know.  My daughter has a male teacher this year for the first time so I need to stock up on cards and projects for him since I hardly make masculine things.  Big change for me.

All of us need encouragement from time to time and teachers are no different.  They have such a difficult job everyday.  Image 25 little people all with different personalities.  Now imagine them all talking at once.  OMG!!  I hear headache coming on fast.

So to keep my daughters teacher motivated, I created this card:

Your The Best

Want to know how I created this card.  Come on over to the a2z Scrapbooking blog to hear all about it.

I Love Back To School, Do You?

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with the DoubleClick Skittles Back to School Challenge!!  This will be so much fun!

I love back to school.  I love new paper, pencils, pens, notebook, glue, OMG I love everything.

This is our second challenge and I wanted to say to everyone who participate in the first, Thank You so much.

This challenge runs for two weeks.  This is the second of the two.  So, you have one week before the challenge ends.

Now on to my card for this challenge:

Skittles Back to School

My daughter has her first male teacher this year so I wanted to make sure my projects were male centered.  This is challenging to me since I’m so use to making cute girly things, lol.

Want to know how to make this card, well here’s how you do it:

1. I cut my card stock so that is measures an A2 size card (4-1/4 x 5-1/2 scored at 5-1/2).

2. I used my Big Shot and Stampin’ Up! Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create the the texture on the front of my card.

3. I used my Project Life Lined Journaling Cards for the first time ever, LOL.  I love these little cards.  (I have no idea what my resistance was but its over.) I divert!

4. I stamped my crayon, glue, paintbrush and ink from the Sweet Stamp Shop Artsy Fartsy Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

5. I used my Copic Marker #G07, YR16, V17, B14, R27, G28, Y19, Y13, B12 to color in all of my images.  (I’m so happy about that.  I’m trying to practice my coloring.)

6.  I stamped my sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Hey Teacher Stamp Set using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

7. I added color to my apple using my Copic markers.

8. I adhered my journal card to my card base using foam adhesive.

9. I  added Wink of Stella to some of the embossed letters and numbers on my card base.

10. To really make my card pop, I added my Pumpkin Skittles to the four corners.

Here’s a close-up:
