Kim Gowdy is on our web show today walking you through how to create die cut inserts. This is a relatively simple technique that gives your project an added sense of depth and slightly more texture. This technique is even easier if you have coordinating dies for your stamps so you eliminate any tedious fussy cutting.
No Talkie Before Coffee
Here is the card that Kim will be stepping out on our webshow.
The Art Impressions stamped image of the happy lady spinning in her office chair was stamped and then cut out with a coordinating die. Kim then used the coordinating die to cut out where she would like to place the image on her card. Next she simple adhered the die cut stamped image into the space – creating a die cut insert. Pretty simple. If I confused you – it will all be clear after you watch the video! Giggle Giggle!
For this web show Kim used a number of products from some of our favourite companies. The base of the card and all the patterned paper is from the Simple Stories Life in Color Collection. This is an older Simple Stories line – but it is still one of our favourites.
The stamps and coordinating dies are from Art Impressions. Our team is seriously in love with the Art Impressions BFF collection.
We can all totally relate to so many of the Art Impressions light hearted sentiments and giggles. If you follow Creative Scrapbooker Magazine on Instagram (CLICK HERE if you do not!) you will find that we LOVE our coffee!!!! This sentiment – No Talkie Before Coffee – is soooo true for so many of us! LOVE IT!!!!!
Kim used Ranger Distress ink to stamp the image and the sentiment.
Colouring the image with Chameleon Color Tone Pens is soooo easy! Chameleon makes shading an absolute BREEZE!
Kim adhered everything into place using her E-Z Runner Grand from Scrapbook Adhesvies by 3L.
