Pocket Cards with Shimmer Sheetz Lining By Judi Kauffman

I love making pocket cards. They’re easy, but impressive, the kind of card that announces ‘you’re worth the effort’! This time I designed a trio, working in an assembly-line fashion – all die cutting first, then all assembly. Using the same color palette throughout made it easy to coordinate all of the elements: bright yellow cardstock for the lacy portion of the pocket, a mix of red, burgundy, teal, and orange cardstock for the rest of the layers and some of the die cuts, Shimmer Sheetz for everything else.

Die Cut Designer Challenge

Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge – May

May 2, 2017
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.

Embossed Shimmer Sheetz Easter Eggs

Embossed Shimmer Sheetz Easter Eggs
by Judi Kauffman

Each year I make sparkly embossed Shimmer Sheetz Easter Eggs for my friends. It’s always a mix of hanging ornaments and cards, sometimes a two-fer card with a removable ornament on the front. I enjoy choosing the embossing folders and have a great time adding embellishments like Glitter Dots peel-offs.

This time I incorporated some of the new ModaScrap dies. I trimmed away portions of the Dandelion Fluff to create the feel of grass or nests as well as to make an egg stand! Dancing Butterflies and portions of the Lace Pocket made their way into some of the cards, too.

I usually try to limit my cards to only one or two dies but I went all-out this time, incorporating Stitched and Postage Stamp Rectangles as well as the aforementioned. The eggs are hand cut. I wanted chubby, bottom-heavy 3.5” eggs, larger than the Elizabeth Craft Designs egg die, so I drew my own pattern. (It’s a very simple shape – you won’t have any trouble drawing an egg, I promise!)
