Fresh Cut Studio

New Video: How to Create Accents with Alcohol Ink

Hi, friends!

Do you like beautiful butterflies and dragonflies? Then you are going our latest video!

Bev and I have been playing around with the Build a Dragonfly and Classy Butterflies dies. We figured out a fun way to use alcohol inks with glossy cardstock to make your own accents with the dies! These pretty accents are easy to make and will look amazing on your cards and scrapbook pages.

Watch Bev's video for the scoop!

(Can't see the video? Go here to watch it on our website!)

I was so inspired by our video that I made a few cards. These cards feature a slight variation on the butterflies shown in the video. 

Here I used alcohol inks to simply add color to a solid butterfly cut from glossy cardstock.

Hello Inked Butterfly Card for Technique Tuesday

I used it on a card, but imagine using several butterflies like mine to decorate a scrapbook page or the cover of a journal. You could even cut and color several of them and then string them together to make a garland for a party or to decorate your craft space. 

And here I used alcohol inks to add color to some intricate butterflies cut with the Classy Butterflies dies rather than solid ones.

Hello Friend Butterflies Card for Technique TuesdayDon't they look neat? Want your intricate butterflies to really stand out on your card or scrapbook page? Consider die-cutting some solid bodies from vellum or glitter paper and placing them behind the intricate butterflies. 

I hope you too are inspired to play by this fun, new video! Please share your projects with us on Instagram or Facebook. Be sure to use the #TechniqueTuesday hashtag when you share your projects!

Tutorial: How to Add Color with Markers to Intricate Die-cuts

Hi, everyone! Teri here today with a quick tutorial showing you another way to use your markers. Instead of using your markers to color in stamped images, use them to add color to your die-cuts! Check out this card.

A handmade stamped card by Teri for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.com

Here's how I made the accents for this card.

Step 1: Start by cutting a couple flowers from white cardstock. For this project I used the Fresh Cut Flowers crafting dies.

How to Add Color with Markers to Die-cuts Tutorial || TechniqueTuesday.com

Step 2: These dies have some small pieces that might fall out when you cut them. To keep them together, I placed a little washi tape (or two-way tape) on the back of the die-cuts and set the small pieces over the tape. This will help keep those small pieces in place!

How to Add Color with Markers to Die-cuts Tutorial || TechniqueTuesday.com

Step 3: Now it's nearly time for the fun stuff... we get to color. But, first, a word about markers. There are lots of markers out there that will work for this technique. You don't have to have the latest and greatest. You just have to have some markers you are comfortable using. I personally find the brush and bullet tip style ones are my favorite for this technique simply because sometimes I want to add color in really small spots on my die-cuts.

Take your markers and slowly apply a little color to your die cut pieces. Keep going until your die-cuts are covered with color.

Step 4: You might have some spots where you accidently got marker color onto your die-cuts where you didn't want any color. An easy way to fix that is by taking a white pen and simply applying some ink over the stray color.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial. Be sure to check out Technique Tuesday's Stand-Alone dies! We have lots of dies that will work wonderfully with this technique.

A Heart Die to Fall in Love With...

Hi, everyone!

Teri here, and I'm excited to showcase some projects featuring one of Technique Tuesday's newest crafting dies, Pieces of My Heart.

Pieces-of-my-Heart-Fresh-Cut-Studio-Crafting-Die-Technique-Tuesday-FB

This heart-shaped die is made of interlocking puzzle pieces. It's great for making fun accents to use on cards and scrapbookers.

But let's talk shop for a minute though. I'm lucky and get to play with all of Technique Tuesday's new products. But when I first saw this die, it wasn't my favorite die. I didn't really want to use it. Yep. I really just wrote that.

However once I started playing with this die, and I started seeing what TT's Design Team members were making with it, I fell in love with it quickly. Here's why: It's so versatile! There are just so many ways to use it! 

You can use it as it is.

Orange-Pieces-Of-My-Heart-Card-Kymona-T-Technique-Tuesday (1)

--------------------------

You can stamp an image, like one of the Goats from the Gertie & Garth Goat stamp set, and then use the heart die-cut the die-cut image.

Old-Goat-Card-Teri-A-Technique-TuesdayDon't limit yourself to goats. Try using it to cut out images like flowers too. 

--------------------------

You can die-cut several hearts and create an interesting design by arranging them together.

Rainbow-Heart-Puzzle-Card-Close-Jill-H-Technique-TuesdayWant to send your design to new heights? Die-cut the hearts from watercolor paper and then apply watercolors to them!

--------------------------

You can even cut the heart from patterned paper. 

Heart-Puzzle-Pieces-Card-Dana-J-Technique-TuesdayFor added fun, cut it from several pieces of patterned paper, snip the puzzle pieces apart and assemble them together! 

--------------------------

For more ideas for using the Pieces of My Heart die, check out our Idea Gallery

We'd also LOVE to see how you are using the die! Share your projects with us on Facebook and Instagram. Be sure to use the #TechniqueTuesday hashtag when sharing!
