Creative Die Cuts Online Class

Hello and welcome! I am so happy you have chosen to take part in learning new ways to use your dies in a handmade card. In this class, we will explore new ways to create dramatic effect using these dies in ways that create interest on a card.

Classes are not meant to be taken in a particular order. You can skip to the fourth card and then the first, each lesson is a stand alone project. You can view each tutorial as many times as you need. Once you have purchased a Class Series, it will still be around. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I am available to help with a particular lesson.

The inspiration for these classes is to help you with YOUR inspiration and creative process. By learning a new way to use the products I have featured in these projects, you can duplicate the process to create a card or switch things up a bit. Having the knowledge to make a craft project is half of the job done. Use these ideas as “creative mojo” when you need an idea!

Each session features a photo series, project measurements, supply list and video instruction.

I can’t wait to dive into Creative Die Cuts with you!   -Jenny

 


Session One:  Partial Die Cut Floral Frame

This project allows you to create a frame for the card front that has not just an inlay die cut, but a die cut that is part of the frame itself! I used Stylish Stems Framelits dies to create a flower frame that allows you to use any sort of background paper as a contrast. This card design works great for all genders and can easily be adapted to many color schemes.
measurements for this project:
Whisper White card stock card front/frame: 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Designer Paper layer: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
Thick Whisper White card base is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (cut from 4 1/4″ x 11″)

Session Two:  Offset leaflets overlay & Adjusting the Stitched Shapes

This project allows you to create a striking dimension for the card front that has not just an inlay die cut, but a die cut that is part of the picture and offset, to expose the contrast card stock underneath! I use Leaflets Framelits dies to create a leaf that literally pops off the page. Also included is instruction for changing the die cut shape of your Stitched Shapes Framelits dies. I will demonstrate how I change a square die into a rectangle die cut.

Session Three:  Stacked die cuts & using the negative space

This lesson’s feature is using word dies and how to create a stack of them to make an focal point for a card front. Once we stack a pile of die cuts together, it’s no longer the same piece of paper as before, but not has the 3D possibilities. Also included in this lesson is a bonus card using the negative space from a watercolor panel. I hope you will be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to generate this 3D effect to bring a new technique to your crafting.

measurements for this project:
Whisper White card stock scraps for sentiment
Watercolor card stock: 7″ x 3″
Basic Black card base is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (cut from 4 1/4″ x 11″)
Thick Whisper White card base is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (cut from 4 1/4″ x 11″)

Session Four:  Refining or isolating a partial die cut medallion

This lesson allows you to create a focal point or a medallion for the card front that is made up of a die cut shape with an area that lies outside of the die cut included in the medallion! I used Stitched Shapes Framelits dies to create a Square medallion that includes the stamped image of a baby and umbrella. This card design works great for all genders and can easily be adapted to many color schemes.
