CAS Mix Up Partial Die Cut

I am playing in CAS Mix Up January "Partial Die Cut" Challenge
Hosted by the very talented Hideko.  Check out her clever shaker card and the
 creative cards by the talented DT girls and Guest Designer,  Tristan (Tristan Designs).



Using Partial Die-cutting, Stamping and Dies and Brushos.

My 1st try at Partial Die-Cutting.
I watched all the videos provided by Hideko for ideas..a great help!

Then started my design by stamping with my Altenew "Leaf Canopy" stamp onto A2 size of Strathmore Mixed Media paper.
Next used reconstituted Brushos to watercolor the leaves.

Then the fun part to use the "Leaf Canopy Die" and just partially die cut
the top half of the image by placing my cutting plate on the upper half
of image and putting thru my Big Shot.

Next I die cut my card front with Reverse Confetti
"Lacy Scallop Confetti Cut Die",  which I had to have after sweet
Hideko sent me a few die cut pieces:-)  We do enable each other!!

I attached my card front onto SU Black cardstock and added
dimensions behind the die cut leaves so the partial cuts
would show up better.  Then added the stamped sentiment from the
Leaf Canopy set and a few STAMPlorations "Shaker Blends" sequins.

Attached card front to SU Whisper White 100# card base, 
added Wink of Stella to leaves and Done!

I LOVED the results and will be using the technique again. Thank you Hideko!


Here is a photo angle showing the popped up partial cut.

You still have until the 24th to play along. 
Such a fun technique.  Hugs...

  12. What a beautiful and refreshing leaf card, Nancy! I love the green shades of Brushos you used and the dimension you created for the leaves.
    Fantastic job of showing off the dimensional leaves, using the partial die-cut technique only for the top half. The black cardstock peeking through the lacy scallop frame and the apertures of the leaf die-cut is a wonderful color accent.
    Thank you so much for your kind words and support for me, and I appreciate sharing this beauty with us! I’m always happy to see your cards in the CMU gallery.
    Hugs.. Hideko :-)
