decoupage artwork

I came across a shop on Etsy yesterday called Wee San Francisco that sells beautiful decoupage artwork:

I've had something like this in mind for a long time (to illustrate Bible story scenes using paper cutouts), but had never seen anything like this before. So this has given me new inspiration. A while ago I found these QuicKutz shapes that I could probably use for a few different stories:I'd like to use a die cutting system if possible so I don't have to charge as much (the woman behind Wee San Francisco cuts every shape by hand and charges $100 - 200 for the artwork above). So I need to find out if there's any problem with selling products made with QuicKutz, but right now their website is down for maintenance.

In the meantime, please leave a comment and let me know what you think of this idea. Thanks!

I love the Bible characters - that's awesome. For people who are really into holiday or seasonal decorating, too, I could imagine the nativity scene being a big hit.

These are super cute! They look fun to make too.

I think they it's an awesome idea! However, it will entail more time, so the price would have to reflect that, but using something like QuicKutz would definately cut down on the time. If they do have a problem with you selling artwork made with their tools, you could look into other companies, or see about having custom templates made, that you would own all rights too!

Even being a late answer: today there's cricut, wishblade and other electronic die cut systems that allow you to cut any design - even the ones you design.
