I am playing along with Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday: Double Partial Die Cutting. I love this technique and the results you get. I do have to admit I am terrible at cutting a straight line with my X-Acto knife. I just can't get it straight even when I use a ruler. Ugh! I added the twine to cover up the horrible mess I created with my cutting. Laura makes it look so easy.
Here is the first card I made but wasn't happy with it. I am sharing anyway. After I created this one I thought of a cross die. Hmmm, another card?!
My next card is for Wplus9's Throwback Thursday Challenge.
I was inspired by Maureen's first card and used the sketch. I also used similar colors but used a different stamp set, Pretty Patches: Tree with matching die.
I am also adding the Christmas card to Christmas Card Challenges: Anything Goes.
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
I actually like both of them - the first one is so pretty with that subtle color scheme and your second card shine with the bright colors!ReplyDelete
I like both, too, Kristie. You achieved such beautiful results. I need to try this technique.ReplyDelete
Oh wow! I love them all! They are all just beautiful! I especially love the one with the egg and the blended background! So pretty!ReplyDelete
I saw that video and was in awe! Your cards are drop-dead gawjus, Sistah! I'm not good with a knife, either, but I couldn't tell it on yours.ReplyDelete
Great trio of cards Kristie! Love your blended inks backgrounds. I have tried partial die cutting, without success, but will keep trying!ReplyDelete
Have a great Easter weekend!
Three gorgeous cards! Love them all Kristie!ReplyDelete
Awesome job with the double partial die cutting!!!! Love them!ReplyDelete
I like all three! Even the second one! Why don't you love it?!ReplyDelete
Great job on these cards! I love the technique so thanks so much for sharing it! I will have to give it a try and see what I can do :)ReplyDelete

Fabulous cards Kristie. I love them all. Thanks for joining us at Christmas Card Challenges.ReplyDelete
You are to hard on yourself, Kristie! They are three look perfectly perfect to me! Such a fun technique...ReplyDelete
...that would be "too" sorry... =\ReplyDelete
All three of your cards are awesome. I can't cut a straight line for the life of me either, even with a ruler. I don't know if your left handed or not, but that is my excuse...hahaha! I do love how you covered up your cutting with the twine...smart! Have a very blessed Easter, Kristie!!ReplyDelete
Your 3 cards are all beautiful Kristie! And I love your idea of using the string to cover up "the mess"....wish I would have thought of that, as my cuts aren't too straight either! And I can't even use Sue's excuse of being left handed!! Anyway, they're all great just like they are!! :0)ReplyDelete
I saw that tutorial and now you have inspired me to try the technique - I think i would probably need ribbon at the base too :-). Beautiful cards Kristie.ReplyDelete
Fabulous cards Kristie! I have to try this still! So glad I purchased the church too!ReplyDelete
Beautiful cards Kristie! So crisp and clean...ReplyDelete
What gorgeous cards Kristie. I love all of them. I really would be a bit scared to try this technique.ReplyDelete
Lovely CAS cards! Great job!ReplyDelete
Thanks for entering our Christmas Card Challenge and Happy Easter!

Three fabulous and amazing use of dies and love the clean look you created with them. Wishing you and your family a very Happy Easter.ReplyDelete
Love your cards, Kristie! The little church is so perfect with the twine bow is a great cover-up :)ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! I did the church but didn’t like the way it turned out. Beautiful cards today!ReplyDelete
You nailed the technique beautifully with your lovely Easter cards!ReplyDelete
These are all wonderful, Kristie. I thought the twine was inspired. Then read that it covered up a mistake. Now I think it is even more inspired.ReplyDelete
You certainly have this technique down, Kristie! LOVE each one of your beautiful cards!ReplyDelete
Three beautiful, softly colored card creations! Great save with the twine (I'm quite sure though that your cutting was just fine). Beautiful shading from the yellow to blue on your second card. Third card....love the checkered panel.ReplyDelete
Happy Easter to you and your family :)
Kristie, all three cards are beautiful, but I am specially touched with the Wedding card. It is so clean, crisp and festive!ReplyDelete
These are lovely!! Simply beautiful!ReplyDelete
Wow, I am loving all of your cards Kristie! think you did a great job with this technique. I haven't yet tried it but plan to. I don't know which is my favorite as I love them all. Hugs, BrendaReplyDelete
