Tutorial Thursday: Masking with Dies

Hello! Happy Thursday to you all..

Joy here bringing you another Tutorial Thursday..

This week I am sharing a Halloween card with you all and using masking with dies..

Using some masking paper, I trimmed a piece down to measure slightly smaller then a standard size 
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card, I die cut the Stitched Circle out of the trimmed piece of masking paper and taking another piece of masking paper, I die cut the Scary Tree, keeping both negative and positive pieces to use on the card...

Using the negative piece of masking with the die cut circle, place onto a trimmed piece of white card stock of the same size..

Once the masking paper is adhered down to the white card stock, start to apply distress inks to create a moon feature..

Removing this masking paper, I then added the die cut Scary Tree, using the negative die cut of the tree, applying black soot ink..

Once this has had time to dry, this is where the positive pieces come into play, applying directly back over the inked sections, then start to apply different coloured distress inks to get the spooky sky scene..

Here is another look of the card, I also die cut some Eerie Bats and a sentiment from Egyptian Mummy Luka to add just a little more addition to the card..

I hope you take your dies out and see what scenes you can create using masking..

Thanks for stopping by today!

Tutorial Thursday: Using Multiple Dies to Create Layered 3D Frames

Hello! Cathi here! It is Thursday, so that means it is time for another tutorial!!

This week I created this layout for the blog. I wanted to create a special frame to highlight my beautiful girl on her horse ride at the County Fair!  You can make some amazing frames when you think outside the box and use your La-La Land Crafts dies a little differently!

I started by cutting out my photo using one of the Stitched Nested Circles.

To create my frame I simply used two different sized circles...this cut the inside and outside circles to make the frame. I didn't use the next sized down circle for this but skipped that one and used the largest and third largest circles to make a wider frame.

To finish off the rest of the frame I cut out 2 of the Lattice Doily Border Die and four of the hinge from the Booktab and Labels Die set. For two of the hingest I cut them into smaller pieces for accents for the frame.

To start creating my frame on my layout, I placed the two Lattice Doily Border Die pieces first.

I added foam dots to the back of my Stitched Nested Circle to give it some dimension.

I placed the frame over the photo and then placed the frame onto my Lattice Doily Border Die die cuts.

Finally I added my hinge pieces complete with their pearl accent, just the right decorative touch for this frame!

There are many ways to create special frames with our dies, check out the beautiful frame that DT leader Sue Kohler did creatively using the Heart Tree die, a label from the Stitched Elements and the Stitched Nested Circles.

Give it a try! Create your own special frames using La-La Land's gorgeous dies!

Hugs! Cathi
