How To Use The Same Die To Create Two Different Projects<br/><small> by Steph Ackerman</small> | Rinea
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.
