A year of Card Techniques - March

This month's technique is inlaid die cutting. It seems hard but once you try it, it's very addictive.  Here are some videos to show you how to do this fun technique:

It's month three of our year long adventure into different card-making techniques, 
folds and paper crafting products.

This month we will be focusing on inlaid die-cutting and you won't want to miss the awesome cards we've got for you today. We really love feedback so please leave a comment on each of the blogs in today's hop. Each comment on the 12 hops throughout the year will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate. 

Now on with the projects.
I used my BIGkick die cutting machine for these cards...I had fun using different ways to color the back grounds. I used Tim Holz ink pads, chalk ink, Glimmer Mist, and even a brightly decorated paper. 

I used Glitter Mist under the wings.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I look forward to seeing you next month.

  1. I love that perfect for this technique! As I mentioned on Theresa's blog, I find it amazing how different the same die looks in each different card! It was fun hopping with you, as always!

  2. I love the butterfly and the different techniques!

  3. I, too, attempted a butterfly. um... WAY too many little pieces to piece into the wings. Totally drove me nuts. So glad you have much more patience than I, as they all turned out beautiful! Great hopping with you!

  4. Beautiful cards Jearise! Thanks for hopping with me.

  5. That butterfly is awesome. The cards are all so different. Great hopping with you.

  6. Soooo pretty and we both used butterflies. Love all the different results you achieved with the one die. Had a great time hopping with you.
