butterflies-thinlits-butterfly-technique-laser-cut-babywipe-deb-valder-stampladee-stampin-up-1

So let’s look at all the cool stuff in this card…You’ve got the butterfly thinlit that is half cut out; you’ve got the “masking” of the butterfly so you can do the “babywipe” technique to color.  How stinken neat is that????

butterflies-thinlits-butterfly-technique-laser-cut-babywipe-deb-valder-stampladee-stampin-up-2

Here’s a close up..what do you think?

This is the Butterfly Thinlit where it is “half-cut” so it’s still attached to the top layer of this card.  Here, watch this video and then we’ll talk…

Okay so what did you think?

Which technique did you like the best????

Remember if you are interested in getting this Butterfly Thinlit, it also comes in a bundle where you can SAVE 15% on both the Stamp Set annnnnnd the Thinlit.

How to Laser Cut your Stamped Card using Thinlit Dies with Deb Valder

Hidy Ho and Happy Sunday everyone,

Current Hostess Code:  JRD29Q97

Today’s card is more of the Laser Cutting Technique.  It’s not actually laser cut but our thinlit dies can give you that effect!.  So here you go…

dryer-sheets-laser-cut-technique-butterflies-thinlit-window-hello-you-crazy-about-sheet-deb-valder-stampladee-stampinup-1

did you see how I layered the

Painted Blooms inside the cutout?

dryer-sheets-laser-cut-technique-butterflies-thinlit-window-hello-you-crazy-about-sheet-deb-valder-stampladee-stampinup-3

window sheet behind the cutout to hold in the DSP

and here is the “happy” that was cut from the card base!

So do you want to know how I did it?  Click here to view the video from your email.

Now I need some help, do you think it would have looked better if I put the Blackberry Bliss Cardstock back in or did you like how I used the Designer Series Paper (DSP)?  I think I like the DSP in there the best!  What are you thinking?

Also remember that I have a few specials going on right now:
