Layered die-cut inlay and chalkboard

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hello everyone!

Svitlana is here today sharing two very different cards. They're different in the final look, color palettes and techniques used.


For the first card I used Vintage Flowers stamps set and the set of matching dies and it was made using layered die-cutting inlay technique.


First I cut a panel from yellow cardstock, cut a branch out of it and then started cutting out different flowers (I used only smaller ones from the set). Then I cut a branch from gray cardstock and the same flowers from white cardstock. I double-cut the branch and some flowers in the areas where they overlap (which is hard to explain so maybe I will film a video showing this technique, so stay tuned).

Then I adhered the panel to a gray card base and adhered all die-cuts in their negative space. Added stamping to the flowers using Altenew Jet Black ink. These flowers are multi-layered, but I only used one layer. To finish off the card I added a sentiment from Label Love set and several sequins.


The next card is made in chalkboard technique. It was very trendy in crafting world a couple years ago and is still trendy in decor. I personally believe that chalkboard is one of those trends that just became classic and is always trendy. And I personally have a weakness when it comes to chalkboard :)


To make this card on a black card base I stamped succulents from Altenew Succulents stamps set and a sentiment from Beautiful Day using white pigment ink .  Then I started coloring the succulents. I first was covering parts of an image with white pigment ink using Fantastix tool.

And then colored over with color pigment inks.

I drew a surface under the pots and added chalk effect by rubbing the card with a paper towel inked with white ink.

Hope you liked my cards. Have a great day!
