Hello everyone, it´s my turn to share another guest design team post over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today and for this post, I was inspired by a question placed to my on my YouTube channel: “have you ever used the die to cut out the stamped image you just made?”
So I tried and here are the results:
This experiment resulted in the above clean and simple style cards, created using the same ModaScrap die cut dies I originally created my DIY foam stamps with (see that particular video here).
I really like how these cards turned out, even though the technique itself was a little bit tricky. You can see the complete start-to-finish on the technique on the following video – I hope you enjoy it:
Of course you could go the easy way and just first die cut the image, then ink the die cut image with stamp inks and have a perfect result every time OR you could first ink a larger piece of cardstock and then die cut that area with the die cut die. Again, resulting in a perfectly inked and die cut image. BUT that was not the question, so I went the unordinary way and first stamped with the DIY foam stamp and the tried to die cut the already stamped image to see if it would work. It did, in a way. And I really like the results, because of their artsy look. I am sure there are easier ways to create cards, but if you are in for the fun of it, I suggest you give it a try!
Wishig you all a great day and see you again in December for another Elizabeth Craft Designs project post!
