Creative ways to use your dies – shaped die-cut card and more!

Today I’ve got a jam-packed post full of card making ideas, showing you creative ways to use your dies, including how to make shaped die-cut cards. I’ve really loved the Paint Your World Collection from Spellbinders and Vicky Papaioannou and this Painter’s Palette die set is one of my favourites from the collection. it really calls to my painters’ side of my crafting! I’ve also got creative with the Petal Frame die, creating two cards in one go. So let’s get started!

This post was produced as part of design team work with the Spellbinders Club Influencer group where I'm given supplies to use. The information provided is based on my own personal experience - I am not an expert.

how to make a shape die-cut card

For this card, I heat embossed card with the following embossing powders to die-cut the paint splodges from the Painter’s Palette die set: Petalicious, Red Glitz, California Gold, Wheatfields, Midori Splice, Blue Skies and Niagra Blues. In addition, die-cut the pain splodges out of white card to layer-up behind to create dimension. 

The Wheatfields and Blue Skies comes from the new WOW! Trio with the profits going to help out in Ukraine!

how to make a shape die-cut card

To make the shaped die-cut card, position the palette die from the Painter’s Palette die set over an A2 card panel, ensuring part of the die hangs over the edge of the card fold. This will prevent the card from being completely cut into and keep a fold at the top of the card. 

Adhere the paint splodges onto the palette card base and stamp a sentiment from the Paint Your World sentiment stamp set in Black Jack in.  Use the brush die from the Painter’s Palette die set to make a brush and add a little shading with an ink blending brush.

Adhere the brush onto the card panel and finish with adding some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to the tip of the brush to make it look like it is wet.

Swallowtail Tage sentiments

Start by dry embossing a white card panel with the Loops Embossing folder. For the florals, hot foil the Magnolia Bouquet Glimmer Hot Foil set with Moondust Hot Foil Roll. For this card, I used the leftover foil with the solid hold foil plate to create the reverse before die-cutting the flowers. 

For the sentiment, heat emboss in white a sentiment from the Let’s celebrate Sentiments stamp set onto Paradise Hero Hues cardstock. Die-cut this out with the Swallowtail Tage dies, and also die-cut this out of Adriatic Hero Hues cardstock, along with the tag tie. 

Foam mount the tag onto the front of the card and add the flowers on the top clustered over one side. Finish by embellishing with iridescent sequins.

Cutting into your die-cut panels

For this card, die-cut the Petal Fame Die from Soft Stone cardstock and also from white card. With a pair of scissors, cut around the inside cutting out the initially central pattern. With an ink blending tool, ink blend Chiffon ink onto a white card base. 

Foam mount the white die-cut panel onto the ink blending card panel. Next, repeat this with the grey die-cut panel that your have altered. 

To finish this card off, embellish the card with gold matte sequins, following the stitching details. A sentiment was added using the Mini Everyday Sentiments Hot Foil plate

Creating with the left overs!

This card uses the leftover die-cut you created when we altered the die-cut panel from the previous card. Use a circle die to cut into this altered die-cut. In addition, use two circle dies to cut out circle die-cut frames from white card and adhere this onto the die-cut. 

Using a blending tool, ink blend Chiffon Ink to the middle of a card base. Foam mount the circle die-cut onto the front. 

Finish the card off by adding a sentiment from the Mini Everyday Sentiments Hot Foil plates and embellished with matte gold sequins.
