WCMD Challenge #1 - Diecutting with Hussena

WCMD Challenge #1 - Diecutting with Hussena

Happy World Cardmaking Day! We've got a fun day planned, with challenges every 2 hours from our amazing cardmaking team and tons of inspiration!

Challenge #1: Diecutting with Hussena

Hello, crafty friends!
This is Hussena, and I am hosting the very first challenge to kick off the World Card Making Day (WCMD) celebrations! Woohoo!

The theme that I have chosen is a very simple and easy one - Die Cutting! I have used the Pinkfresh Studio Lovely Blossoms stamp and coordinating die set and the Simply Diamonds Die for my inspiration card.

I had so much fun creating this card as it combines two of my most favourite techniques - stamping and die cutting. I started off by stamping various flowers and foliage from the Lovely Blossoms stamp set using a plethora of pastel inks from Pinkfresh Studio. If you have a stamping tool like the MISTI in your stash, I'd highly recommend using it when using layering stamps like the Lovely Blossoms set. It facilitates for easy stamp layering and will help save time too.

I cut out all the images using the coordinating Lovely Blossoms die set. Next, I took a piece of White Cardstock and ink blended the panel using Mint dye ink. I kept it aside to dry, and in the meantime, die cut the Simply Diamonds Die from White Cardstock. I adhered the background die cut over the ink blended panel and then foam mounted this panel to my card base. 

I die cut one of the shaker windows from the Essentials: Shaker Tags die set to create my sentiment label. The sentiment is created using a mix of two different stamps from the My Favorite Things To Say stamp and was stamped using Detail Black ink. I also die cut an additional frame from the Essentials: Shaker Tags die set from Gold Mirror Cardstock for added interest. I finished off the card with some White Jewels from Pinkfresh. 
Wishing everyone a very happy World Card Making Day!

So pretty. Love the Bright colors. You’ve inspired me to get out that stamp set and make some cards. I didn’t know I needed that diamond die but now I’m thinking that I do 😊
