Three More Cards and Background Die Techniques From My Newest Video

 Inlaid diecutting is one of the background die techniques I share in my newest video featuring new Pattern Plate dies from Karen Burniston and Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Flakes. I cut two blue Swirls Pattern Plates and inlaid some of the waves around this cardfront. The mermaid is a die from Impression Obsession and she is shiny and gorgeous with Golden Onxy Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Flakes. Here is a peak at the inside of this card with more fun Karen Burniston and Impression Obsession dies:

I created a stencil with the new Tiles Pattern Plate and sponged different shades of purple ink onto white cardstock and then cut it out with a triangle die from Reverse Confetti. Then I used the Tile stencil to emboss the background with a rubber mat in my die cutting machine and sponged on some blue ink to highlight the embossing. The butterfly was created with Frosted Violet Aurora Flakes and I added some of my favorite gems from Gina Marie Designs to finish this (and all) my cards.
Another thing you can do with a stencil die cut with a background die is to apply Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo from Therm O Web through it and let that dry until clear. The Duo Gel remains tacky so when you dump Aurora Flakes on it, then rub away the excess as I show in the video, the result is this gorgeous shimmery background! "Love" was cut with a die cut from Sugar Pea Designs and attached on a vellum heart with some Gina Marie Designs gems. 

Another tip I share in the new video is how much I am loving Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue with their choice of tips and ease of use. It drys perfectly clear and I love it for attaching detailed die cuts to my cards.

I am entering the first card in the Seas The Day challenge at Dies R Us. 

I love how all these cards turned out and hope this video and my card samples have inspired you to try some background die techniques and Aurora Flakes from Cosmic Shimmer.
