Obviously, I can’t do anything in order. Here is my Day 2 submission for MFT Camp Create 2016 – Die Cutting.
I took my entire inspiration from a gorgeous card Nina-Marie did on the Pretty Pink Posh blog this past week. I don’t have all of the “tools” that she used. I don’t have the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors (yet). I used Pearlex and the two golds from the Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi set that I do have. I did use the Zig Clean Color Markers.
I used two new Blueprints that I absolutely love – 27 and 29. They’re perfect for this technique. I also used the new MFT Funky Flowers set. I’ll confess I have a hard time with “loose” on a watercolor background, so mine isn’t nearly as soft as Nina’s, but I love the way these cards came out. One is standard A2 and the other is my personal favorite (especially when I’m making gift card sets to give away) 4Bar. The base of the die is glued down directly to the cardtop and the inserts are popped. The sentiment is from the first card kit, Beautiful Blooms. It was the perfect size and I went way outside my comfort zone and fussy cut around it before adhering it down.
I have to say I’m visualizing a Christmas card with big snow flakes in blues & silvers using this technique.
Happy Father’s Day to all you dads and husbands out there who lovingly watch us (from the doorway) in our craft rooms, creating away!
