Craftyscrappers Challenge #14 Inspiration...

Hi! The theme for the Craftyscrappers Challenge #14 is new technique. Here is the set of cards that I made with inlaid die cutting. Though I have tried this technique with shapes, this is the first time I made it with a sentiment die.

I started with three pieces of white panels cut with the Stitched Rectangle dies by Die Cuts and More. I stamped the images with a mix of Altenew and Memento dewdrops inks. The stamp set is from Craftyscrappers called Gratitude. It is a beautiful set with lovely images and some great sentiments. I stamped the top layer with Versamark and heat embossed with gold, silver and copper EPs by Ranger and Wow!.

After my stamped panels were finished, I used the Hand-lettered Hello die by Wplus9 to die cut the sentiment out from two of the panels. I also cut 5 out of white card stock. I adhered the white sentiments and then topped them with the sentiments cut from the stamped panel. I also cut three sentiments out of silver and gold metallic paper. Here are close ups of the cards with details on how I made the card bases.

I ran the kraft card base through my Big Shot with the Woven Next Level embossing folder by WRMK. I love the amazing texture that this embossing folder creates. Here is a closeup of the stamped panel.

I mounted the panel on the card base and added a sentiment in gold metallic paper.

I kept the next card very simple.

I used some handmade paper on the card base and adhered the stamped panel on it. Here is a closer look at the panel.

The sentiment is cut from some textured silver paper.

The last card is made with Altenew inks. I wanted to create an ombre effect.

I used a white card base and colored it with direct to paper technique. The sentiment is cut from silver metallic paper.
