Five Cards One Die by Jeni

posted in: Blog, Jeni 2

Hi, Jeni here with a quick blog post on how to make five cards with one die.  All the products I used are listed and linked below and available from the online shop.  I used the Stained Glass Coverplate die and different mediums to add the colour and finishing touches.


Card 1 – Kind

Firstly, I embossed the die onto some thick watercolour card to get the impression of the pattern and used Distress Oxide inks (Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Peacock Feathers) to colour each area.  Then diecut another of the Stained Glass and adhered this over the background.  The sentiment is from the Kind Of Wonderful stamp set and heat embossed on vellum with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossing powder.  Fussy cut out and adhered to a vellum circle with a banner strip in black.


Card 2 – Happy Birthday

I don’t like wasting any Distress Oxide so I spritzed my craft mat with water after colouring the background for Card 1 and picked up all the colour with two pieces of Bristol card. From one piece I diecut the Stained Glass and the other I use this as the background.  I stamp a simple Happy Birthday from a Concord and 9thstamp set on a circle diecut of white card.


Card 3 – You’re The Best Ever

Using three Distress Oxide inks: Ripe Persimmon, Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers and a No8 Watercolour Paintbrush I painted the background to get a nice blend. Once this was dry I added the Stained Glass diecut and a circle with a sentiment from a Concord & 9thstamp set.  Finishing with some Morning Dew Crystal Drops.


Card 4 – Peace On Earth

Again I emboss the coverplate die onto some watercolour paper and used the Avery Elle Premium Liquid watercolours to colour each section.  The colours I use are Sapphire, Sea Glass and Aquamarine, then add the Stained Glass diecut on top and heat embossed a Christmas sentiment in white embossing powder onto a vellum circle.  I finished this card with Jewel Crystal Drops in Seabreeze on the vellum.


Card 5 – Focus On The Good

I coloured a piece of Neenah card with two shades of blue alcohol markers for the background.  Then diecut the Stained Glass die and smooshed my Versamark all over the die.  Covering the diecut with Shimmering Pearl embossing powder and heat set.  Repeating the embossing with Shimmering Pearl twice more when the die had cooled.   The sentiment is stamped on vellum with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed in clear.



TIP: I put some mono multi liquid glue into an empty Quilled Precison bottle with a Fine Tip Applicator by Ranger. I’ve found this is the only way I can use this glue without getting too much coming out.
