The first Counterfeit Kit Challenge for June is to use ONLY patterned paper to create and layer a die cut for your project.
Now I can imagine that this has lots of you running for your electronic die-cutting machines. I could have, would have, maybe even should have used a Cricut cartridge to whip up something fabulous. Did not. I reached for a truly indispensable tool – a heart punch.
I remembered the idea of making flower petals from punched hearts when I saw the flower with heart sticker you see top left. I even had a go at making one with a small heart punch – too cute, right? You just push 4 hearts together and then stack 3 or more layers of them together – like so:
If you offset the hearts in a circular motion – (shown bottom right in the top photo) – they also form petals. I offset mine by exactly half – a – heart. And then contrary to the challenge, I added a pretty oversized sequin and button on this one.
You can also stack just a single heart with dimensional adhesive and get a nice effect too:
I was finding making cards from die-cuts very addicting, so I went to my sheet of embellishments and pulled off a few more die-cuts to work with.
And finally I stamped some washi tape die-cuts and clipped them onto this tag.
After I had made several layouts from my kit, I still had quite a bit of Stampin’ Up’s Best Year Ever paper, so I decided to make matching envelopes for my cards using a Stampin’ Up template. Now this kit has been killed – stay tuned for upcoming posts with my layouts.
