Inlaid Floral Hello

This card will be in two places. It uses only dies, so it will be used for the August Challenge Your Stash card with Split Coast Stampers. I used the idea from Online Card Classes Crushing on Cardstock.

Inlaid Floral Hello

I have used inlaid die cutting on cards before, but not to this extent. I used the Fun Flower Slimline Panel Die from The Stamps of Life along with cardstock from TSOL. I think the blue is Sky, yellow is Banana, and the red is Strawberry, all from the Cardstock Set 2. The white came from a stash of scraps, but I am sure it is Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth White. The hello is a die from Gina K Designs. In the class in each lesson, it seems they are stacking the die for dimension, so mine is stacked with 2 layers of Strawberry CS and one layer of white. The last time I used inlaid die cutting, it was for a small butterfly, so this was a first for me. I have never used this floral die and gave the inlaid a try. Well, I lost one of the red pieces as it never cut, so I ended up with a white piece. I forgot to look for a matching marker to color the piece, so it is white. I like the card as it is colorful. I am sure the person who will receive this will not notice the bloom I lost.

    1. Thank you! That was not an easy task to try. Now I have pieces and placed them in a Zip Lock bag and will hopefully do something with them one day.

    1. Thank you! This was a long afternoon. I am not sure why I gave this particular die a try, but went for it. It is nothing like what JM was showing in class, but it is what I had and could wrap by brain around doing inlaid die layering.

  1. WOW…that’s a lot of pieces and the inlaid technique definitely was worth the final result. I would not have noticed the white piece if you didn’t mention it.

    1. Thank you! The background seemed the easiest to inlay, followed by the dots. I kept resting before I finished the blooms.

  2. Wow is the right word to use for this creation. What a lot of work went into this and the result is stunning. Absolutely love it.

  3. Fantastic job on this Lisa! You did it amazingly. And your person won’t notice, unless they are incredibly particular about noticing details.

    1. Thanks! I agree as it is such a small space. I was so frustrated after going through 4 times of cutting that die and the final one didn’t get that place cut. I think the yellow spot hung in the die and I didn’t notice, since it fell out when I pulled the red piece off. I have the left-overs to turn into a card or two when I am ready to pull them out.

      1. When I watched that video, I kept thinking she could just make 4 cards at once just having the colors in different places, then she wouldn’t waste anything. Yep, that’s how I think. I look forward to seeing your others you create.

        1. Honestly I couldn’t wrap my brain around her way. I struggle with all of the extra dies and steps. Right now I have an older template from Kristina with rays, like Yana made with dies. I plan to use my template cutting very few CS pieces.

  4. You did an amazing job on this. I’ve not had time to watch many of those videos, but I’m not sure I’d have the patience for this technique.

    1. Thanks! I am not sure why I wanted to inlay this particular die. I did watch Lisa Mears inlay hers, which is probably why I purchased the die. Many of the ideas go over my head, but Day 4 with Keisha really has great ideas IMO. Enjoy them when you can.
