How To Use The Same Die To Create Two Different Projects
by Steph Ackerman

Posted on July 12 2020

Hello everyone, Steph here today using the same die cut foiled elements to create two different projects.

Using a large Spellbinders die, I die cut Sapphire/Sapphire Starstruck Foiled Paper and Ebony/Ebony Starstruck Foiled Paper.  Next, I die cut the branch from Mocha/Mocha Starstruck Foiled Paper and the leaves from Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Foiled Paper.

I decided to create a canvas with the Ebony panel.  I inlaid the Sapphire oval as the base for my branch and the tiny birds.  The birds were die cut from Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and adhered to the center of the oval just sitting on the branch.  The leaves were placed on the branches.

A smaller panel of Arctic/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper was added to the hanging sign.  Hello was die cut from Violet/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and adhered to the sign.  As I didn't want the canvas panel so white, I inked a light layer of blue ink around the panel.

Using the leftover die-cut pieces, I created a card from the large Sapphire die-cut and the Ebony oval.  A phrase was stamped on a white oval and placed on the center of the card.  Surrounding it, I added a bench and several flower pots that had been colored with Copic Markers.  The watering can was stamped with StazOn ink on Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, fussy cut, and added over the flower pots.

All the elements were added to the card with glue dots for a bit of dimension.

Thanks for stopping by.
