Video Series: One Die, Four Ways – Card #2

One Die Four Ways

CLICK HERE to list all videos in this series.

Hi All!

Welcome back for card #2 in my series! I apologize to those of you who haven’t been able to get the die – it went out of stock quickly, then it was in, now it’s out again. Simon Says Stamp assures me that they will be getting more this afternoon! You can still get $5 off your order through when you purchase the die (use code darlene).

Here is the card for today:

One Die Four Ways

I decided to break up the die to give it a whole new look. I used Distress Oxide inks to create my background. If you missed my review of these inks, check it out HERE.

A closer look at the detail:

Enjoy the video and have a great weekend!

    After a very busy and rather exhausting Friday (in Australia), it was great to sit down with a cup of tea and a chocolate (smile) to watch your video. It was a great way to end the evening. I really liked this card too, mainly because it is so unique and shows such creativity. You definitely have a gift. Thanks for sharing it again with us today!

    Oh my gosh. I wish I had your way of looking at things. The card is beautiful and such an interesting way to use the die.

    Darlene, I was wondering if you have a background in engineering or something? You always to come up with such great designs! Love this card, especially the background & how you manipulated the die cuts. I think the reason the Worn Lipstick and Broken China didn’t work out as well is because Broken China is a green-blue. Since green is the complement of red (pink), those 2 colors can dull each other. I still like the effects you got, though! Thanks for sharing this with us!!! 🙂 ~ Andrea

      Hi Andrea. My background is in Computer Science, so maybe that has an impact. Glad you liked the design. 🙂

    I forgot to mention that I kind of held my breath when you were outlining the boxes with the black. It seems like, whenever I try to do that with a die cut, the pen ends up skipping outside, onto the die cut, etc., no matter how slowly & carefully I go! How do you do it so perfectly?

      I go very slowly, I try to keep my pen as perpendicular to the paper as I can, and I don’t take any deep breaths. 🙂

    I love the card! When I first saw the die, I was wondering how you would make this into a series, but you are incredible! What a great idea, to cut apart the die cuts! Awesome!

    Hi Barb. God puts the ideas in my head. It’s the only explanation.

    Beautiful! I thought the black marker was black cardstock until I watched the video. Perfect light hand to manage that.
