Today I’m sharing how three ways I used the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper. Actually, All three use the same sheet of this specialty paper.
#1 No Stamp and No Ink
One of the sheets has 6 card front designs as well as several pretty fancy border pieces. I used one of the 6 to create the card above, cased from Mary Fish at Stampin Pretty. I chose to go for a no stamp no ink by cutting out the words from the retired die set Lovely Friends. Lots of other current die sets would work, like the Celebrate You thinlits, or Sunshine Wishes Thinlits
#2 Soft Background
I cut down the leaf design card front and colored it with Granny Apple Green ink and my stencil brush. Sponge or daubers would work just as well. Layered over white on soft Sea Foam Green made a nice background for the hippo. I stamped him in Gray Granite and colored with smokey slate watercolor pencils cropped out with Stitched Framelits
#3 Stenciled Background for a Bolder Look
While I was coloring the laser cut piece above for the Hippo, I placed the laser cut over a piece of whisper white cardstock to get double duty. When the laser cut was removed, I had this piece left behind. A perfect backdrop for another card. I chose to make this one a bit more bold using Granny Apple Green paired with Black for a Thank you Card.
The Thank stamp is from the All Things Thanks stamp set. I only inked up THANK and not the S in the larger sentiment. I also used my Stamparatus so I could ink it multiple times to get full coverage. You comes from Sunshine Wished stamp set. I again used the Stitched Framelits as well as the Oval framelits and finished it off with a piece of Lemon Lime Twist ribbon from last year.
