Inlaid die cuts


Inlaid die cuts seem to be all the fad these days so I wanted to try it out. This card uses the same SVG that I used for  my previous card. Instead of using dies, I used electronic die cuts made with my Zing. I cut the negative die cut on white cardstock, the rose in pink and leaves in green. Adhered a piece of copy paper to the back of the white cardstock. Then glued the rose and leaves in their respective positions.  Stamped the greeting in black. Very pleased with my card and my Zing Smile

Watercoloring using stencil

I created a stencil using my Zing and cardstock. Put the stencil on a watercolor paper and taped it (so it doesn’t move). Then colored inside the stencil using distress inks. Stamped some birthday stamps using second generation stamping in Weathered wood. Doodled a frame using black pen.

Mother’s day card


I used my Zing all the way to make this card. The doily are some SVG files I downloaded from MTCSCAL efiles quite some time back. It was a single doily and with some editing, I created two doily layers out of it. I love how the Zing could cut such an intricate design in PTI 110lb cardstock! Then used Sharpies in Zing to write the greeting and then cut it out too! This was the first time I tried that out and the more I use my Zing the more I love it (and MTC). It did take some trial and errors to get the placement right, but that’s expected. I use the WYSIWIG feature in MTC to write and then cut out the circle. Some pearls and glitter, and the perfect mother’s day card is ready Smile

Happy Father’s Day card

I embossed vellum using Agyle embossing folder and then colored the vellum on the reverse side using Spectrum noir markers. Cut thin strips from black cardstock to make the fram. On the sentiment I created chalkboard effect by first embossing in white embossing powder and then outlining it with white prismacolor pencil. The oval is cut using nestabilities. The card base is Kraft cardstock.
