I’m taking an online class on die cutting called A Cut Above. The first week has finished. Today I finally had time to go to my studio and experiment with the techniques shown.

First I did a window card featuring these lovely little finches by Impression Obsession colored with Copic markers.

Supplies used: Spellbinders Postage die and Square die

Impression Obsession Finch stamp and die

Memory Box Dancing Tulips and Woodland Branch


Next I tackled partial die cutting-placing a die on unfolded card stock and partially cutting it so that the cut portion pops up beyond the fold of the card. Alway Time for Tea, a stamp and die cutting set from My Favorite Things was the focal point. Patterned papers used were Cosmo Cricket Cubierta Miniatura.
