Negative Die Cut Cards May Die Cut Designer Challenge

Hi everyone,

Welcome to our May Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge. This time round we have a technique to share with you that uses dies in a different way.

Our Challenge this month is ….. “Being Negative” – Normally when we use dies to cut we get a positive piece (the actual die cut) and a negative piece (the leftover piece or pieces that we often throw away). In many cases the negative pieces can also make interesting card components, and it is these pieces that are the focus of the Challenge cards. The Design Team can also incorporate the positive die cut piece if they wish.

We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.

Pop it Ups Wednesday with Frances – Steampunk Birthday

April 12, 2017

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here, and it’s my turn to post a tutorial today for Pop it Ups Wednesday. This time around I decided to pull out my steampunk themed dies and stamps, combined with the Oval Pull Card and Jinks the Monkey, to create a birthday card. I have to admit that steampunk is a little out of my comfort zone, but it can be fun to play with something in ways that aren’t what I normally do.
