Negative Die Cutting with the Perfect Vine Die with Chrissie Tobas

Catherine CP Designs, Gallery, Projects, Techniques, Videos

Hi, it's Chrissie here and I am thrilled to be guesting on Catherine’s Blog today!

A few months back, I created a card using negative die cuts and Catherine Pooler ink as my main focus. I received some requests to share how I created it, so I made a video.

Using negative die cuts in a combination with ink and foam adhesive adds extra dimension and interest to and card making project.

This card is fairly simple to make a really packs a punch.

  • Begin with a 4 x 5 1/4″ piece of white card stock.
  • Arrange stamps and die on your panel before cutting or stamping, so you can get a better idea for placement for your finished design.  Once you are happy with the arrangement, die cut the Perfect Vine die.
  • Mask off the edges of a white card base and sponge Flirty Fuchsia and Grass Skirt inks.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Midnight ink.  Using the MISTI stamping tool, stamp the ampersand in both Flirty Fuchsia and Grass Skirt.
  • Remove masks and adhere the stamped panel to the card base with foam adhesive.
  • Embellish with sequins.



Look through your stash and see what dies you have that would make a fun focal point!

Thanks for checking out my video and thanks Catherine for having me!
