Stretch your coverplate dies



Hello crafty friends and happy Monday!


I'm back again on the blog sharing a super easy way to stretctch your coverplate dies.

I love when you can get more uses out of your dies, specially the coverplate dies. I tend to use them to do the dry emboss technique or trimming them. For today's card I used the Dotted Lattice Coverplate die and the Enlogatted Lattice Coverplate die.



For my first project I wanted to use the Delicate Rosebuds Hot Foil with the Dotted Lattice Coverplate die.

I die cut a panel out of white cardstock using this coverplate die and taped it to an A2 panel with washi tape. I repeated this step twice. Then I applied Sage and Sheer Fressia using blending brushes. Next up I cut out one of the panels with the Rounded & Braided rectangles die, add some foam adhesive and mounted it again on top of the other inked panel so I had some extra volume and a continuous design.

Next up I applied Sage, Eucalyptus and Lush Forest to the leaves and Soft Lilac,  Sheer Fressia, Wisteria and Opulence to the buds.




I inked up two panels since I wanted to add another bud. Once I cut it out with the coordinating die I decided to die cut a piece of Gold Glitter Cardstock and adhered it to my Rosebud image offsetting it a bit.





Finally I added some Metallic Silver Pearls and foam mounted sentiment from the same set.

Using the same technique I created another design:




For this project I used Sunkissed and Soft Lilac to color my background using the Enlogatted Lattice Coverplate die as a stencil and cut it out with the Spiral Circle Die. Next up I foam mounted this circle piece on top and adhered the Nothing But the best flower set. I colored this set with the same Sunkissed and Soft Lilac inks mixing them with Coral Reef and Peony. Finally I silver heat embossed the sentiment from this same set.

As a final touch I glued a small butterfly hot foiled in silver onto vellum.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed these projects and are inspired to create!

Hugs,

Raquel

Gorgeous and definitely inspiring ✨️ I hadn't thought of using my coverplate as a stencil recently. Thanks for the reminder.
