Mom I love you Card

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with a Mother's Day card. 

This card is mostly die cuts and some simple stamping. It's not my usual kind of card because it's very shiny. I like some shine here and there but, I decided to use Rinea Foil paper for my flowers.


Let's get started

I gathered all my supplies and then I die cut all the flowers, leaves and letters. I die cut more flowers than I actually used and colors I didn't use. I just add them to my die cut stash for future projects.


Then, I die cut the letters for the word MOM.
 I wasn't in my craft room so didn't have my mat to line up the dies so I used my trimmer.
I cut the word 2x - once from the gray cardstock that I will inlay the coral-pink cardstock letters.


Next, I stamp my sub-sentiment and trim it down.

Now, that I have all the components ready - Let's build the card.

I start by layering the white cardstock onto the gray card front panel.

Then, I inlay the word MOM into the gray band I cut. I add adhesive to the back of the opening of the word MOM this way it's easy to inlay the letters.



I check my spacing.

Next, I get a piece of craft foam and measure the length I need and trim. I like using the craft foam for the middle band like this so that it stays nice and even. Also, it's not too bulky for mailing.


Then, I start to arrange the flowers how I think I might want them. I call this a dry run. I do not use any adhesive until I know this will be the final placement.

Once, I know this is how I want the flowers to be and the band looks good I start to adhere the flowers into place. I keep checking with the band to make sure I stay straight (I tend to stray off sometimes). I also tuck the leaves here and there.

 I trimmed apart the one set of leaves so that I would have several leaves in different sizes without having to die cut lots of leaves.


Now, that I have all the flowers adhered in place - I adhered the middle band in the center. Next, I added a few jewels to the center of a couple of flowers. I kept the jewels in Iridescent White.


Now, My card is complete!

A simple inlay, lots of layered flowers and beautiful results.

Spring Garden Card

Hi friends, Steph here today with my first post for Dies R Us
I am so excited to be joining the team!

Spring is finally on it's way and I wanted to create a bright and cheerful card.



I die cut the lovely Tutti Designs Die - Birdhouse Garden - from white cardstock, then added color with Memento Dew Drop Ink pads.  The unique shape of the ink pads allows you to ink the tiniest of areas with minimal cross contamination.  If you inadvertently over-inked, just go over that area with a darker ink.


I used a 4.25 x 5.5 size card, cut blue cardstock to fit and placed it on the card.  I adhered the die cut birdhouses on the card with the Best Glue Ever.



Lastly, I placed brads in the flowers.  I did not add a sentiment as I haven't yet decided who will be getting this card.
