Negative Die Cut Cards - 52 cards challenge (week 16)

The great thing about the 52 cards challenge is that it is getting me trying out techniques that I haven't tried before.  Week 16 was to use negative die cuts - the bit that usually we would discard after cutting out a shape.

I cut out snowflakes for my Christmas card using a set of Spellbinder dies and raised the piece of cardstock up with foam pads over the top of some patterned paper.  I then decorated with gold peel offs.

For my other cards I used a set of Stampin' Up stamps (Apothecary Art) that have a matching set of Sizzix Framelits.

I coloured the stamped image using SU markers in Rose Red, Old Olive and More Mustard.  I raised up the negative die cut with foam pads so that it sat over the top of the stamped image.  The stamped flowers around the edge of the die cut are flowers from Elements of Style coloured using the same marker colours, fussy cut and raised up using pinflair gel.  I made another two with different greetings.


  1. Beautiful cards, the image is just gorgeous x

  2. those negatives were trickier than they looked, weren't they .... love your take on them, especially the apothecary labels :-)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
