Tuesday Tutorial - Using the waste

Hi Everybody,

This is the Grate Effect die that I have used many times and it you can create some lovely cards with the whole pattern

Way back in March I showed you  Embossing with dies  using this same die to push the pattern into your card without cutting it.

But for todays tutorial I am going to show you how to use the bits that would normally been thrown away and we will create a really sparkly card with some glitter

It is going to be photo heavy so my apologies for that before I start.


Spellbinders Supplies:

Other Supplies:

With the outside edge to this die cut two panels in white card and hinge them together to form your base 

Then with a piece of double sided adhesive sheet cut another one and leave it to one side for now.

With both parts to the die and another piece of white card cut out the whole die and emboss.

Then very carefully you are going to remove the card from the die so that all the waste pieces remain in the slots
Keep the full piece for another project and make sure that all the small waste bits are seated into the die.

Peel the backing off one side of the double sided adhesive sheet and place it on to the waste pieces

Make sure to press it down onto them so that they are all caught onto the adhesive.

Then again being very careful ... lift the adhesive sheet with all of these pieces stuck to it away from the die.

With the glitter of your choice you can now spread it over the top of the panel and press it in to the glue with your fingers.

Make sure that it is all covered and then dust off the excess glitter and return it to its container.

Once the glitter is on the panel I like to remove the backing off the other side of the adhesive sheet and layer the glittered panel on to some white card.

Then I can trim it down to the size I want for the base card I made earlier.

I also layer it again onto some gold card leaving a small border around the edge

Wrap these panels with some white ribbon and stamp and emboss your sentiment
Cut it out with the Circle die that fits your chosen sentiment and layer it with the Scalloped Circle. Scatter with a few pearls

Add in the flowers of your choice and there you have a lovely card and no waste at all from your die

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  4. Hi Christina.wow this is stunning.very very attractive. Such a wonderful idea you have imported into making this card. It makes me remember the card you made that has glassy effect. The addition of glitters made it look special. Wastes are truly useful in card making no doubt. Thanks for sharing such a brilliant idea.

  21. Great card!! I will often cut images with dies and use them as stencils to emboss using embossing pastes or inks. I love how versatile the dies are because I feel that you really get your money's worth by using them in ways outside of what they were intended for! Shaping a beautiful life is easy with Spellbinders dies! TFS!

  34. love this technique Christina, and I can see how it can be used with so many dies. Now of course because I want the small pieces to stay in the die after cutting, they won't. Usually it's a fight to get them all out. Oh well, a pretty technique to try for me. Thank you.
