To Die-Cut or Not To Die-Cut



Or maybe, just partially die-cut, which is what I did here. We’ll be making this card at class this month. It’s a little hard to tell in this photo, but the butterflies from Watercolor Wings are only partially die-cut with the Butterflies thinlits. I stamped the butterflies with Crushed Curry, Tangelo Twist, and Bermuda Bay classic ink, then partially die-cut them before adding some Dazzling Details, glitter, sponging and sequins.

Here’s the inside stamped with Happy Happenings “thank you.”


You can kind of see how the butterflies are only die-cut on the right side. You know the Rice Krispies Treats commercial where the mom pretends she’s worked really hard, but it’s an easy treat to make? That’s this card. It looks really involved and difficult, but it’s surprisingly simple. It could easily be a on layer card, but I decided to back the card to a quarter sheet of Bermuda Bay card stock.

I used a new technique for the splatter on the card. It involves the Stampin’ Spritzer. It was an idea shown at convention, and I’ll share after our local demo meeting at the end of August.

Speaking of local demonstrators – If you’re a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and don’t have a local upline or group, you’re more than welcome to join us! I meet with my downline at least every two months (usually more often), but all local demos are invited. We talk about Stampin’ Up! news and updates, have a Make & Take, and show off some of our newest products and projects. Our next meeting is Monday, August 31 at 5. We’ll just chat and have a show & tell until around 5:30, and then we’ll talk about any news and have a Make & Take. Contact me if you’re interested!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
