Debby's Doodles

Hello, it’s Debby here today with my monthly video feature, Doodling With Debby! I love the look of no-line colouring – stamping an image in a pale ink and then colouring, so the original line is no longer visible. Well, I’ve called today’s technique no-line die cutting.

In the same way as the stamping technique, no-line die cutting results in a coloured image without any black lines and the Picture Book die series from Simon Says Stamp are perfect for this.

I die cut the Picture Book Snowman, Picture Book Deer and Picture Book Santa from Neenah Solar White card and then coloured with Copic Markers. I had great fun colouring these die cuts with simple shading to bring them to life.

Once I’d coloured the pieces for each character, I glued them to a piece of white card and trimmed out before adding a pair of wiggle eyes. I rubbed Ranger Multi Medium Matte over Rudolph’s antlers and dunked them into a tub of Rock Candy Distress Glitter before adhering them to the back of the deer’s head with a glue dot. Also, I added Glossy Accents to Rudolph’s red nose. To dress up Santa and the snowman, I added Wink Of Stella glitter pen to their outfits.

I blended Lake Shores ink into the top of a panel of white card and splattered with perfect pearls solution and then white gouache before mounting the trio of characters with foam adhesive.

For the sentiment, I stamped, and white heat embossed the ‘Hope’ sentiment from the Stained Glass Greetings set three times and die cut with the matching die. I then trimmed out the ‘HO’ from the beginning of each die cut and mounted them below the three characters. I completed the sentiment by stamping a phrase from the Fa La La set in clear embossing ink on card coloured with a red marker and white heat embossed before trimming into a skinny banner.

I added the finished panel to a side folding Desert Storm card base.

  1. I loved how you did this technique. It looked so cute when it was done. How ingenious to cut the hope die to read “ho, ho, ho”. You have a great imagination as I wouldn’t have thought of that. Another multi use for our dies. Thank you for sharing!
