Hello everyone, Welcome to DieCember® Blog Hop Day 1!
DieCember® is an exclusive Simon Says Stamp event to celebrate and promote die-cutting during December.
Today papercraft artists from all over the world are gathering together to share ideas, inspiration using products from this release.
Watch the 4-minutes video to see products in action and how I made all the cards in this post.
Stylized Angel will create a beautiful and intricate silhouette.
I adhered the negative die cuts to the angel silhouette using washi tape at the back and using double-sided foam adhesive I stuck on the background.
Then, I stacked two layers of negative die cuts on the wings one in with cardstock and the top one in gold glitter cardstock.
For the angel body, I stuck the upper part directly on the background and the bottom part was attached to the silhouette using washi tape at the back as well. This added a little bit of extra interest to the image.
I also used Stitching Panel Die to create a texture on the background and to embroider golden little starts.
The sentiments in this card are from Clean Line Christmas stamp set.
For this card, I also used Shimmer Oval wafer die to create a shaped window and to add interest to the background.
I did a very easy paper piecing. I die cut the angel from different cardstock colours and I inlaid them on the silhouette. To keep all the pieces together I stuck washi tape at the back of the image.
the sentiment was made using Proud of You wafer die.
I wanted to make a shaker card as the die will also create an angel shaped window.
For the shaker, I used Nuvo confetti and sequins.
Hot Foil and Gouache on black
For this card, I did some”je ne sais quoi”, This means I really didn’t know what I was doing but I was experimenting.
I used the die to apply heat foil and the silhouette looks beautiful but then I also feel it needed colours so I used Gouache paint to add colours to the angel and I also used Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry colours set to add colour over the angel hair and wings and I also use this metallic paints to splatter the background.
