Thanks for joining me at the start of August release week for My Favorite Things!
For Countdown Day 5, we’re showcasing the Lisa Johnson Designs’ Scribble Roses stamp set and Die-Namics, the Encouraging Words stamp set and finally, the Double Stitched Circle, Oval, Rectangle and Square STAX Die-namics. Here’s my first card:
I had soooo much fun creating the inlaid die-cutting effect with the Double Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics! I trimmed a panel of white cardstock down to 4.25″ x 5.5″ using the largest frame die from Blueprints 25, and drew some guidelines to help with alignment and positioning the dies accurately.
I started by die-cutting the circles, beginning on the left hand side and working my way to the right – with each pass, I left the die-cut piece intact before cutting the next circle.
Also, I replaced the white die-cut circles with coloured die-cut circles as I ran the dies through my die-cutting machine – needless to say, I had a lot of crescent shaped paper scraps to piece back together for the inlaid effect.
The sentiment was heat embossed on white onto a strip of black cardstock and foam mounted to the card front. Here’s my second card:
Again, another fun card to create, though not as complex as the first! I blended Mustard Seed and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks in the centre of a card base to act as a kind of holding area for the floral clusters.
I then created coloured panels using a mixture of Distress Inks and water, and from these, I die-cut the base layers of the roses. I die-cut the overlays from some black cardstock and adhered them to the bases with small dots of Glossy Accents.
The roses were foam mounted to the card front allowing the ink blended halo to peek through – to finish up, I stamped the leaf outline images with black ink onto green inky panels and die-cut them out before adhering them behind the roses.

Oh my goodness, your rainbow circle card is so awesome!! Such clever die-cutting and is so eye-catching. Love it so much!
I stared at your rainbow circles for some time trying to decide how it was done. Fun.
Wow, Mayuri! You are an inlaid die cutting genius! Love those rainbow circles! And your rose card is just gorgeous!
I’m gonna have to reread and reread your inlaid die-cutting method over again (and then think about it some more) to figure out how you did that!! That is a truly amazing design!!

Both cards are awesome, and the inlaid circle one had to take a while to make I would have made myself very confused! But that was a great idea.

I love the background on your first card and the bird on your second card. Awesome!
I kept looking and looking at your first card, and my eyes wouldn’t hold still while looking at it. I think it is spectacularly different and great looking. Hope you show a bit of making it on video. The second card is so pretty. The wonderfully pale yellow you put behind the Scribbles made the Scribbles pop. Great creative work.
If you make another one of those circle cards, please post a video! Like others, I still can’t work out quite how you did it, its brilliant!!!
