Technique: Rotating Panel Dies

Technique: Rotating Panel Dies

Hello crafty friends!! In today’s video I create two cards with the Herringbone Combo Set from Waffle Flower Crafts. In the video I will show you a few ways to stretch this and other full panel dies by flipping, stacking and even masking with them to get several different looks!! I also share some of my favorite partial inking tips for getting smooth gradations!

Technique: Rotating Panel Dies

Watch below or on my Youtube channel.

First, I created the background for this card by ink blending over a contact paper mask that I created with the Herringbone Panel Die. I then stamped my images with combos of Distress Oxides and Distress Inks to create beautiful gradations.

Once I had finished stamping the images die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I then stamped a sentiment from the Herringbone Sentiment Stamp Set on the negative from the wreath.

WFC201911-271284 Merry Wreath Stamps-Channin 2

I made a couple frames using the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die Set and the A2 Layers Dies out of red and white cardstock. I then adhered the ink blended panel onto an A2 top-folding card base. Next, I adhered the frames. I then die cut 2 wreaths and adhered them to the stamped wreath to add dimension. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the images to the card front with either liquid glue or foam tape.

WFC201911-310353 Herringbone Panel Die-Channin 1

I made this card very quickly by die cutting a white and green panel with the Herringbone Panel Die. I then stamped a sentiment from the Herringbone Sentiments Stamp Set onto the white panel.

WFC201911-310353 Herringbone Panel Die-Channin 2

I then adhered an A2 panel of red glittery cardstock onto an A2 top-folding card base. Next I adhered the green panel turns on its head or turned 180 degrees. I then finished the card by adhering the white panel.

And that’s it! ūüôā Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful day!!

Waffle Flower Crafts November Tools and Storage Release

Waffle Flower Crafts November Tools and Storage Release

Hello friends!! Today we are celebrating a very special release over at Waffle Flower Crafts! Today Waffle Flower is releasing several new crafty tools and helpful storage products!! And to celebrate Waffle Flower is having a blog hop and giveaway!!

201911B-Blog-Hog-Badge

I got to work with the new Disc Bound Bundle which includes three new dies and several  binding discs perfect for organizing your craft supplies in a plethora of ways!!

201911B-Disc-Bound-Bundle-Preview

The Disc Bound Bundle includes,

  • Color Combos A2 Panel Die
  • A2 Disc Bound Die
  • A7 Disc Bound Die
  • Binding Discs (Red, Pink, Cream, Pool, Mint, Gray)

I decided to use these new products to create book to help me organize my copic blends!

WFC201911-ColorCombosA2PanelDie-Channin 1

To create this little book, I first die cut 16 pages using the largest die from the Color Combos A2 Panel Die set. I then die cut 8 tabs out of colored cardstock. I then folded each  tab and glued it closed. Then I sandwiched each tab between two pages which I glued together. So in total I will have 8 pages in my book excluding the cover, but I can always add more pages as my copic blends grow. I then added each page onto 5 gray discs.

WFC201911-ColorCombosA2PanelDie-Channin 3

Next, I started to create my swatches. I first die cut several squares using the smaller plain square die from the Color Combos Die Set. I then positioned a list stamp from the Bullet List Stamp Set in my MISTI to stamp the lower half of each square.

WFC201911-ColorCombosA2PanelDie-Channin 5

I then stamped all my squares in Memento Tuxedo Black. Next, I positioned a leaf from the Bouquet Builder 1 Stamp Set in my MISTI and stamped the upper half of all my squares. Once my swatches were stamped I then colored the leaves with my copic combinations and labeled each swatch.

WFC201911-ColorCombosA2PanelDie-Channin 4

Next, I organized my swatches by color and then adhered them to the correct color page. I then decided to finish my book by adding a cover. I die cut my cover with the largest die from the A2 Disc Bound Die out of white cardstock. I then added my cover to the discs.

WFC201911-ColorCombosA2PanelDie-Channin 2

I then decided to dress up the cover more by adding a rainbow. I used the Rainbow Die and die cut a rainbow out of white, red, orange, yellow, green, and blue cardstock. I then inlaid 5 colored arches into the white rainbow frame. I then adhered my rainbow to my cover.

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed!
