Trio of Negative and Positive die cuts...

Hello My dear Stamper Friends:
I had posted these trio of cards at my Spanish blog: "A crear se dijo!", for Memory Box...
In these 3 cards I am using the Negative and The Positive parts of your die cuts ...in order to use everything/make out the most of your papers...

From one die cut, one idea of a card  I end up with 3 cards...
and each one of them with a specific technique...here they are...

The first card that I made was this "thank you" card...

1- I die cut the word "thanks" (using the positive of your die cut) from a blue card stock.
2-  I die cut the leaves 4 times in the a piece of green card stock (using here the negative of the die cut)...
a- I mounted it in acetate paper...

b- did "Faux stitching" with a white gel pen on the edges... and voilà!

The second card: I use the negative/ the left over blue paper that I had use for the "thanks" word in the first card to make this 2nd card

1- I stamped the blue paper and add some embellishments with other die cuts...

a- I decided to use the perfect pearls technique. If you would like to see the explanations on how to use these, click on this post that I did about perfect pearls...I follow the same steps...

The Third card came about from the first card  as well, I had the positive of the die cuts of the green leaves so instead of throwing them I use them in this birthday card...

1- I stamped the stripes of paper and die cut the words for "Happy Birthday"; add leaves and buttons

a- making "faux" washi pate with stamps and placing them in a geometrical style...
see photo below to see how I proceed placing each stripe...(find the center, trace a line and place them one by one as shown)

Moral of the Story:
The use of the negative and the positive parts of your die cuts in these 3 cards is much simple and fast than the one that I showcased in in the post " The negative and the Positive of your die cuts" on August 20, 2013 and that I demonstrated in  this VIDEO.

The reason why, is because in this post the die cuts are in Full, they are solids instead if you are using die cuts with more intricate pieces then you have to be more careful, it requires more patience in retrieving the little pieces left behind, that is why I did the Video...

Ok my friends, hope you find this post interesting or helpful...
Wish you a wonderful day and keep on crafting!
