Stamp2Cut meet Pop 'n Cuts!

I love the versatility and ease of Stamp2cut. You can stamp your image then cut it out with your eClips! Cut a silhouette, add a shadow, Make it larger, make it smaller, and it's all so easy with Stamp2Cut. 
The Stamp2cut images we are using today will all be cut with Stamp2cut Cartridge #12, it's a great set with Halloween right around the corner.

Here's the inside of the card with a little Pop 'n Cuts action. I love all the dimension when you open the card. It's a spooky surprise, BOO! 

We are going to work with the new Authentique card stock from the Enchanted collection.  Cut the outer card to 11 1/2" x 5 3/4", score and fold in half. From the Spiderweb card stock cut a 2 3/4" x 5 3/4" piece and 2 little strips  5 3/4" long from the orange print. 

Put your Spiderweb piece onto the eClips cutting mat. Position the Spider Silhouette overlay where desired, mark the registration marks and load into your machine. I use Post-it-Notes for the marks when I use dark card stock or if my marks are off the paper.

Select the Spider on the remote, locate the registration marks and your ready to cut.

Adhere the little orange strips to the back of the Spiderweb piece so a little shows on either side. Using a Paper Distresser distress the edges and then ink with Black Soot Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. Pop dot a scrap of black behind the spider. Now pop dot this unit to the front of the card centering side to side.

Stamp the Owl Scroll with Jet Black Archival Ink, it need to be a water proof ink so the ink doesn't run when we paint it. I stamped onto a manilla #8 tag. Cut out the image using the Stamp2cut and the eClips. To create the black mat around the image, Stamp2cut has a shadow setting! Cut the shadow using black Kraft Core. 

Color the Scroll work with Ripe Persimmon and Rusty Hinge Distress Ink. Use your Craft Sheet as your palette by applying the ink directly to the Craft Sheet and then pick the ink up with your Detail Water Brush and paint the image. No need to color the Owl he will be covered later. Notice that I cut his wings off at the bottom with scissors, don't forget to trim the shadow too. Adhere these two pieces together and pop dot to the card.

Let's add the hardware now. The Ornate Plate, "31" Plaquette, "Cobweb" Muse Token held by a Charm Clip are all form the Tim Holtz Idea-ology line. Add a little Pitch Black Paint Dabber with your finger to the "31" Plaquette and grunge it up.

Now for the inside of the card. With Pop 'n Cuts so popular these days I haven't been able to get my hands on the base die yet. It's on order though! Karen Burniston and my fellow Design Team members have been making such amazing cards. I was really inspired and wanted to play! Karen made some fabulous cards on the blog earlier this week check them out here.  Since the Pop 'n Cuts inserts can be also used in the Base Tray, I decided to get in on the Pop 'n Cuts fun by using the base tray until my base die arrives.

Cut your inside card stock to 5 1/2" x 11". Draw a line on the back side on the card stock essentially where it will fold. Now line up the Magnetic Label Pop 'n Cuts die on the line you drew with the fold cut on the die and center it top to bottom. Carefully place the die and card stock in the Base Tray without moving the card stock, carefully place the cutting matt on top and run it through the Vagabond to die cut the Pop 'n Cuts Label. After the piece is die cut score the card only at the top and the bottom as shown below. The score line will extend the little fold slits that the die makes. 

Here is a drawing to show you what's going on. 

Fold the card carefully. Start with the long fold towards the center of the card, pinch where the label is and fold the card closed. 

Stamp the Spiderwebs with Stampers Anonymous Trick or Treat Set #50  twice onto black card stock with Picket Fence Distress Stain. To use Distress Stain on stamps prime the stain on your craft sheet then swipe the stain over the stamp. Dry with a heat tool.

Cut the Spiderweb out with Stamp2cut cartridge #12 on your eClips.

Ink the Spiderweb with Vintage Photo Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. From Black Kraft'Core cut the bats and another spider silhouette. 

Die cut the Gothic Boo from a Mirror Sheet. Place the Mirror Sheet face down on the die add the cutting pad on top and run it through your Vagabond to cut the BOO! I love using different materials with the Bigz dies. These dies will cut fabric, canvas, thin metal, paper, card stock. What do you like to cut?

Pop dot all the elements to the card. For the Spider webs only pop dot the center and glue the edges. You will notice that one of the webs has been cut apart and repositioned.

Now let's put them together add adhesive only to the outside edge, the furthest edges from the fold, the far left and the far right. 

The sky is the limit! What can you make with your Pop 'n cuts die? When it comes to Stamp2cut, you don't always have to stamp to use all those fun images.

  1. WOW! Richelle, I am totally blown away by this. I think it's one of my favorite cards of all time. What an amazing example of what is possible with Sizzix!!

  2. This is so fantastic! I am so glad you drew out what you did with the insert. I don't have the base tray either so now I can do it on Tim's tray...perfect!!! This is really an awesome project!

  3. Oooh! This is spooktacular, Richele! I love all the details and combining PNC's with Stamp2Cut - brilliant! The silhouetted spider knock-out knocks me out! (see what I did there?) Love it!
