Birch Press Design Peony Blooms Birthday


Today I am up on the Birch Press Design blog with a video tutorial to create this card using the Peony Blooms Stackable dies along with some of the new
 Distress Oxide inks   You can watch full length video here or over at my YouTube channel. I found my voice for the first time ever to explain what I'm doing. I would love to see you comment over on YouTube with what you would like to see from my videos and follow me while you are there if you are interested in seeing more.


Today I am showing you another way to add colour using the Birch Press Design Stackable layer craft dies. I am using Peony Blooms Layer A, Peony Blooms Layer B and Peony Blooms Layer C along with Ranger Distress Oxide inks. I have put together a video tutorial for you.

After I sponged my three panels with Distress Oxide inks I spritzed water on them so the Oxides could work their magic. These are the three panels I sponged cut out with the Peony Blooms Stackable Layer dies. In order from left to right Layer A, B and C.


Once adhered together I prepared the cad base. Once again using Distess Oxide ink to sponge the background and spritzed it with water and lifted the excess with paper towel.  All layers were adhered together with Elmer's Craft Bond Spray Adhesive (see previous tutorial done by designer, Laurie Schmidlin). I sponged some more Distress Oxide ink on to my base panel and also spritzed it with some clean water.


The die cut layers were adhered to the front of the card base. I added my sentiment stamped and die cut from the Make a Statement Make a Statement clear stamps and Make a Statement craft dies.


These close up photos really show how much depth and dimension can be achieved with these dies and just a few gradient changes in colour.


Perfect for a summer birthday.


With the Stackable craft dies the possibilities are endless. I hope I inspired by to make something beautiful today.
