Die Week: Non-traditional Cutting Surfaces with Teri

Hi everyone!

Teri here again, and I'm excited to finish up this week's Die Week festivities with one more card created with Technique Tuesday's DIY Steel Dies.

Smile Clipboard card from TechniqueTuesday.comOne of the things I dig about Technique Tuesday's dies is all the different materials you can cut with them. You aren't limited to plain old paper. No. you can use Technique Tuesday's DIY Steel Dies with cork, sandpaper, metal tape and more.

I used an non-traditional paper (a very thick watercolor paper) to cut the bases for the octagons (from the Going Places steel dies) for this card.

I die-cut the octagons and then brushed some watercolor paint onto them. I love the artsy look the paint gave them. For added visual interest, I added some hearts (also cut with the Going Places dies) and banners (cut with the Flair Maker dies) to some of them. I also added a few gems. 

Another fun non-traditional surface to use Technique Tuesday's steel dies with is craft foam. Check out this Story Card from the Technique Tuesday Inspiration Vault.

Smile Story Card from TechniqueTuesday.comWe die-cut the Smile word (from the Say It - Smile steel dies) from a white craft foam. I just love the dimension it gives the Story Card!

Love all the die cut card/techniques. Just went thru all the posts. I'm on vacation and Internet service is not so good. Can't wait to get home tomorrow now and try some of these ideas!
