Hello everyone!
It's Jan from handcrafthobby with you today.  Im so glad to be on Craftin Desert Divas' blog sharing my project with you featuring our this week topic "Die Cutting Techniques".  I also combined my card for our October Mood Board Challenge.  Few more days left to enter the challenge at our CDD Facebook Gallery.  Hope you're playing along with us because we do have some prizes for you to win.  Here is the link to our challenge at CDD Facebook Gallery

This is what I made for you.

And here is the closer look at my card

I love Inlay die cutting technique because I love doing one layer card.  I was debating between doing the water splatter on the background or leave it as it is but I think either way it will look nice and I wanted to capture the beautiful colors from the mood board photo.

Here is how I prepared my card using Inlay die cutting technique.

From white cardstock, I started by did my inking background using Distress Oxide wild honey and fired brick for the sky and peeled paint for the hill.
I then used a smaller Urn die and branch die from Urn dies to cut out on the positions that I planed.  After I cut those I also used the hill die from Outdoor Landscape dies to cut the hill.

On a sperate white card stock, I cut the same Urn die and colored it with copic markers.  For the branch I cut it out again from texture brown card stock.  For the hill I used the same piece of card stock from my main background and inked it up with peel paint distress oxide and it covered all the light yellow from wild honey ink.

Time to assembly all of the elements together.  I puzzled piece all of them together and used washi tape to attached them from the back.  I also stamped the stentiment directly on the hill panel.   I used the cutie birdie, crow and sentiment from Harvest Happiness stamp.  Fussy cut the birds and glued them directly to my card front.

I then attached it to thin typing paper and cut my panel using Crazy Stitched Frame dies and mounted onto black card base.  I also sprinkled Pumpkin Spice Sequins here and there and I particularly put the sea beads on the branch.

I hope you like it and joining us for the challenge.  And Thank you for stopping by today.
