New Challenge for Get Inky!

The new challenge for Get Inky! is to use Die Cuts

Die cutting has always been a favourite technique of mine (using my Big Shot) -
 but now I have my Silver Bullet!

Here's my first card:

I started with a brown square card base and added one of my favourite shapes -
 Stampin' Up's 'Topnote' cut from cream card on my Big Shot.

I stamped a sun and sentiment from Get Inky! Stamps;
 the sun onto some yellow card using Hero Arts soft 'canteloupe' Shadow Ink,
 the sentiment directly onto the card base with Versafine.

I then cut a circle round the sun using my Big Shot and a circular nesting die and put it in place.
I added a button and twine to add emphasis to the sun.

Now to the boat...I traced the sailboat digi from Get Inky! onto my Silver Bullet software
and cut it out twice on different coloured papers.
I then added the pieces to my card!

I then realised I had a 'negative' and could make a second card in less than 10 minutes:

My family are all sailors so these cards will come in very handy!

Hope you will join our challenge!

Happy Crafting!

  1. Both cards are great with you. Perfect for men, but OK for a female sailor as well I'd have thought. Isn't it great to manage to make a second card from the same die-cut cardstock and save on waste.
