Faux Watercolor Look on Vellum

Hello everyone! I was excited about all the new dies and embossing folders from Lifestyle Crafts / We R Memory Keepers. I immediately ordered a few of my favorites using my Studio Team credits. I played with the Mason Jar Die yesterday and wanted to share what I have discovered while playing: a faux watercolor look on Vellum! The Mason Jar was screaming to be cut with vellum! The technique is very simple: use your Copics or any other alcohol markers to color in the embossing window. Use as a template is one of my favorite features of this die! I was putting the colors on very liberally and was happy with the results! I traced the patterns with a 0.05 Copic multiliner to give them more definition. It was a nice surprise to find out that the “Be happy, it’s a decision.” sentiment from our Bowtiful Stamp Set fits nicely in the banners. Remember to bend your clear sentiment stamps if needed. I die […]

Wildflower Gift-Wrap with Top Dog Dies

Hello everyone! Popped in to share a gift-wrap I made with some dies from Top Dog Dies. Top Dog Dies is a new online store that offers their own brand of wafer-thin and steel-rule dies, along with dies from brands you already know and trust, including My Favorite Things, Sizzix, Savvy Stamps and Cheery Lynn Designs. Top Dog Dies is also the leading U.S. retailer for Tattered Lace, a new line of intricate dies designed by U.K. designer Stephanie Weightman. I die cut the Madison Doily from some silver foil paper and was happy with how cleanly it cuts. I did very little “poking” to clean up the intricate doily design. I die cut the Wildflower Die twice from green cardstock: And adhered the two pieces together loosely on top of the doily. I can picture myself putting more of this gift wrap together in the future. It is quick, […]

[Back to Basics] Manual Die Cutter or Electronic Die Cutter?

Hello everyone! I’ve been wanting to do some Back to Basics posts for a very long time. I’ve tried to include some step photos in my posts but my blog is probably not a beginner-friendly site. I am grateful that some of you emailed me your questions and made me realize that I should cover some of the basics at some point. I can’t promise how often I will be posting in this category but today I’m going to answer the most frequently asked question I get: “Should I get a manual die cut machine or an electronic die cut machine?” Since an automatic die cut machine (e.g Vagabond – $119.99) cuts the same way as a manual die cut machine, I will just compare the differences between a manual die cutter (e.g Big Shot – $69.99, Cuttlebug – $56.99 and Evolution – $104.49) and an electronic die cutter (e.g. Cricut Expression – $199.99, Silhouette Cameo – […]
