May Technique Hop ~ Make the Cut

Welcome to our May Technique Hop! This  month we're featuring our Thin Cut Dies with great and creative ideas on how to use them. If you've come from the blog of Terry Metzger you're on the right path. Just click the link at the end of this post to hop to the next blog.

This layout was so much fun to create! I love the day/night contrast and how it came out in layout form. For the day page I used a template made by using the large scallop die in the Decorative Border Thin Cut set. By moving it around the "cloud" area of the page and sponging ink around the edge, I was able to get nice fluffy clouds. I also used two circle dies for the sentiment in the lower right of the  day page. The Basic Circles are perfectly sized to layer with the Stitched Circle dies making it super easy!
The night page was a bit more simple. I stamped corners and the shape behind the moon with the Timeless Textures stamp set. When I applied the Clear Shimmer Brush around the moon it created a moon glow effect. The moon was done by stamping the moon image on the BACK of the glitter paper and then fussy cutting it out.
