Die Cutting Distress Products

Pinspired Challenge #11

Hello and welcome to another Pinspired Challenge! I hope you guys will play along with us for this challenge. The inspirational photo is just gorgeous and I couldn’t wait to play along the moment I saw it…. Here is my take:


I had fun making this card because it uses a lot of techniques. I heat embossed the gorgeous background with white embossing powder and then water colored the images with Tim Holtz Distress Markers. I also colored the banner and little house with the distress markers as well… I decided to break up the background just a little by die cutting an air vent strip using a Simon Says Stamp exclusive die…


I popped the banner and house up with foam dimension and voila, done!
