Today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers was created by the wonderful Shelly Hickox. She shows us how to use die cuts and turn them into 3d images. What a great idea! I had to try it out right away. Her sample is vintage prefection, so I tried to go a different route and see if it would work for a different style as well.
I used the elephant die from My Favorite Things Circus Spectacular and cut it 7 times out of light-weight coasters. The elephants were cut down adhered to each other with Beacon 3 in 1 Craft Glue. Once it was dry it small pieces of dictionary page pieces were adhered to the elephant with Glue N’ Seal. Once it was dry, Pearl Acrylic paint was added over it.
A frame was cut twice out of light weight coasters with the Vintage Cameo die. A piece of Fancy Pants The Good Life patterned paper was cut with the same die, adhered to the frame. The edges were painted with Acrylic Pearl Paint. Another piece of The Good life paper was adhered behind the frame and the elephant was adhered in the middle.
The card base was cut out of Neenah Solar White cardstock with the largest Stax Jumbo Fishtail Banners. More The Good Life paper was cut with the same die, sanded and cut down. The edges were stitched, Beetle Black doodlebug twine was tied around the layer before it was adhered to the card base.
A sentiment from Circus Spectacular was stamped on more The Good Life paper with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. It was cut out and layered on Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the Ticket Strip Die-namics die. It was adhered on the left side of the frame and topped with a button to finish off the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have time to check out Shelly’s amazing tutorial and sample.
