Hello everyone!! It’s Channin here and I’m back with a new technique video! This week’s technique is a combo, Markers Stripes and Inlaid Die Cuts! I had so much fun playing around with these two simple techniques, that I made 5 cards!! I just couldn’t stop playing with color combinations and experimenting with directions of the stripes. Hope you enjoy and maybe try it out for yourselves!

[TT Video] Marker Stripes with Inlaid Die Cuts by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel. First, I traced around the medium square die from the Doily Square Die set on a scrap of white cardstock. I then selected my alcohol marker colors, lined them up in the order I wanted to use them and then made diagonal stripes on over my traced square using the chiseled tip on my markers. Next, I die cut my striped scrap with the medium and small square from the Square Doily Die set. I then rearranged my cuts to create a new pattern and adhered them onto a backing I created by die cutting the medium square from a scrap of white cardstock. Next, splattered some watered down black acrylic paint onto a 5 ¼” square card base (did not splatter on all my cards, I did however, on the one I created in the video). While my splatters dried, I die cut “celebrate” from white craft foam and white cardstock using the Celebrate Word Die. I then adhered these two together and then stamped and white embossed my sentiment from the Congrats Stamp Set on a strip of black cardstock. Next, I mounted my striped inlaid square on foam tape and I mounted onto my cardbase. Now because I wanted a portion of the “Celebrate” to hang off the inlaid panel I then die cut another craft foam “celebrate”, but this time I trimmed off most of the letters and only kept the last 3 and adhered them onto my previous “celebrate”. Next I adhered “celebrate” onto my card base. Then, I added foam tape to the tail end of “It’s your day” and then glued the rest onto my card base. I hope you enjoyed!
