"Using The Negative Of Die Cutting"

Hello Friends, Followers, Visitors and Viewers.
What do you do with your piece or pieces of paper after you die cut an image out of it/them?  Do you throw them away or do you look at the negative in a way to make a second card?
After die cutting from a piece of water colored paper on yesterday, the negative really looked good enough to use on another card base with a different impression.

  • I had cut out the Spellbinders Romantic Vines from a piece of Ranger water colored that had been colored.  You can see the card I made yesterday, HERE.   Do you see the vines I used on this card?

Now for today, I used that same piece of paper as the focal point for this card you are looking at.

  • I selected some Recollections flowers to include in some of the areas on the card.  
  • For the embellishment I placed three blue Recollection gems toward the top.  
  • Below the gems , I used a Ranger clear embossing ink pad and stamped the sentiment (from Hero Arts clear stamp set) onto the card.  Blue embossing powder was heat embossed over the stamped sentiment.
Enabler's List:
cardstock:  Neenah white and Recollection black
focal area specialty paper: Ranger water colored paper that had been water colored and a die cut had been used for parts from it.  This is the negative that was left
embellishments: three Recollection flowers; three Recollection gems
stamp: Hero Arts clear stamp
ink: Ranger Emboss It clear embossing ink pad and blue embossing powder  

Take a second look after you die cut.  The negative just may look good enough for a second card.
Thank you so much for your time and continued support.   Have a Great Day in whatever you do or will be doing.  Come back again.

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
Lois
