Marker Coloring Die Cuts

by Lydia Evans

Hello everyone and a very happy Friday to you! It's Lydia here with you today and I wanted to share with you my technique for marker coloring die cuts. I'm using one of my favorite sets from this month's release Rose Flurries 3D Die Set. I just love how many flowers and leaves are included in this set and they are just so pretty!

I started by cutting all of the dies from Rose Flurries 3D Die Set from white cardstock. I have a little trick when doing this so all of my pieces stay in place on the cardstock when cut, I add a scrap piece of cardstock under the piece I wish to cut when die cutting. You can see exactly how I do this in the video a little further down this post .

Once the pieces where cut I then coloured them using Artist Marker Set A, using the blues for the flowers and the greens for the leaves. When colored I then adhered these together using spray adhesive.

To finish I added a sentiment from Love You So Mush Stamp Set.

For a full step by step on how I created this card please check out the video below or over on our YouTube Channel:

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I'll see you again soon!

Hugs, Lydia

Those flowers are so beautiful and I love the idea of coloring them rather than trying to find suitable cardstock to match.

I work with a lot of 3d and I’m so happy you have started making dies that do all the hi-light work. I was always stamping numerous times so I could cut my own hi-light areas. Thank you.

Beautiful. Altenew has the best layering stamps, and I’m so excited about the 3D dies. Thanks so much for the tip on keeping die cut pieces in place. I’ve struggled with this, and this will be such a time saver.

This is so beautiful. I love the look created by coloring the white card stock. I have used the Fantasy Floral Layering stamp using colored card stock, but love this method better. Thanks for the neat tip for the coloring process!

Hi Lydia,

Thank you for taking the time to create this video tutorial for us crafters.  
I especially love the tip about using a scrap piece of crd stock underneath the dies when cutting them all out. Also the tip of being able to layer the pieces of the flower in any way light to dark or vice versa. :o)
