Today on the Paper Crafter’s Library blog, we’re continuing our weekly featured artist spotlight whereby each week we spotlight a different artist/designer in the paper crafting & mixed media world and introduce you to their fabulous work. Today we’re thrilled to welcome Wida Miller.
Before we show you Wida’s projects, let’s get to know her a little bit more…
My name is Wida Miller and here are my “stats”. I have been blogging for about 2 years, scrapbooking for ten, card making for about five. I have 4 kids, and 1 career as a nurse practitioner. I call my style fresh and edgy. I have been on many wonderful design teams, guested for some fabulous companies, won some fantastic awards and contests and enjoyed friendships within this community that I hold dear. What a wonderful place to be creative, share a common passion for art, and a love of pretty things. I am so honored to be here!
Wida has created two projects for us today.
To My Lovely Valentine Card
1-Die cut Penny Black Rose from card stock, but leave in the paper.
2-Stamp image with various print stamps. For this I used Penny Black Heart Swatches
3-Remove from card stock
4-Cut 2 pieces of card stock the same size.
5-Generously tape the first piece with dry tape, especially covering the entire area where the die cut will go.
6-Die cut another rose using the second piece of card stock. Remove the rose. Keep the negative.
7-Adhere the 2 pieces of card stock together.
8-Insert the die cut image like a puzzle.
You want to do your other stamping and such before inlaying the image, in case you mess up but the finished look is quite lovely. The sentiment is Penny Black From the Heart.
Supplies: Penny Black Rose die, Penny Black Heart Swatches stamp set, Penny Black From the Heart stamp set, Divine Twine Christmas, Scalloped Edge punch by Stampin’ Up!
Wida’s second card for us is this beautiful baby card. The cardstock that shows through the die cut area is coated with glitter.
Here’s a side shot so you can see the glitter better.
You can watch a video on how Wida created this baby card below.
