A Great Big Thanks



Hi everyone!! Dawn here with you today and I have a A Great Big Thanks card to share with you.





The first step is to stamp the images you want to use onto some white cardstock:



Next you want to color the images.  I chose to use Copics.



Next, using the dies that came with the stamp set, cut out the colored images and also the circle die cut out of some green cardstock:



Next assemble the card as you please. I used some foam tape to adhere the green circle die cut to make it look 3d.....





Below are the supplies that I used to make the card:


                 Stampendous - Stamp/Die Set - Elephant

Stampendous - Stamp/Die Set - Elephant


Thermoweb - 3D Foam Squares - White .25" 176/Pkg

Howdy!

Welcome back Dies R Us friends!
Darlene with you today sharing a happy western themed card that I've created for one of my cousins who has loved horses for over 60 years.  She's about to go on another Wagon Train adventure and I wanted to wish her a safe trip!


The dies I've used today are:
Impression Obsession - Dies - Western Couple

Serendipity Dies - Howdy

Other product used is Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks

Distress Oxide Ink Pad - Broken ChinaDistress Oxide Ink Pad - Black SootDistress Oxide Ink Pad - Faded Jeans

I wanted to bring full focus to this beautiful silhouette scene so I've added dimension to die cutting twice and placing the two panels together using dimensional tape.


To create my background I've sponged three different colors of oxide ink onto a 4x6 panel of watercolor paper, spritzed with water and moved around before drying with a heat gun.  Then I added a little more color around around the outside edges before sprinkling with water and dabbing with a paper towel.  





I just love creating my own backgrounds and feel it made for a wonderful nighttime backdrop to this fabulous silhouette.  I think she's going to love it!!

Here's a photo of my cousin and her 'grandson' on the wagontrain last year.

Whales Tag

Hello Dies R Us Fans!  Lori here today with this summery whale tag.



Here is how I made this tag.


I applied the Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass distress ink with my blending brushes and then I spritzed it with water.



I dried the tag with my heat gun and applied some Peacock Feathers distress oxide and spritzed it again and dried it with my heat gun.



When the tag was all dry I took the several different shades of green paper and the Memory Box Seaweed Ribbons dies and cut out the seaweed and added that to the bottom of the tag.  I took the
Impression Obsession Whales dies and cut it out twice, once with gray texture paper and some dark green paper.  I took the outline of the whale in the gray texture paper and placed that on the tag over the Seaweed Ribons and then I inlaid the dark green pieces of the whale inside the outline.  I took some black ink and stamped the sentiment onto the tag.  I took some Blue Hue Tail Mermaids Tale Crinkle Ribbon and made at a bow at the top of the tag.

Merry Merry

Tracy here today with a Christmas card. I thought I'd get a jump start on my holiday cards.



To start I took a panel of white cardstock and sponged some Distress Oxides in faded jeans, wilted violet and iced spruce all over it.


Then I cut out all my die cuts using Impression Obsession Hill Landscape dies and Lawn Fawn 
Birch Tree Dies.

Once I got it all assembled I added the silver deer and tree which I've had in my stash forever and then stamped and embossed the sentiment strip and popped that up on the card. I also added some Nuvo glitter drops in white blizzard to give it some sparkle.



Supplies Used


Lawn Fawn - Birch Trees Dies


Impression Obsession - Dies - Hill Landscape Layers

Nuvo Glitter Drops - White Blizzard

Best Glue Ever

Distress Oxide Ink Pad - Wilted Violet

Summer Flip Flops

Hello, fellow crafters.  It's Julie with you today, and I'm not quite ready to let go of summer!  The season is very short where I live, so we squeeze out every day we can get.  I have a summer card, featuring an adorable pair of summertime flip flops:



The Dies R Us Store has many cute flip flops that would work on this card.  Just put in flip flops in the search engine and see what comes up.  I liked these from Cheapo Dies.  I think they would be great for a patriotic themed project, so I know I'll be using them again. 

Here's a picture of the supplies I used on this card:

I had the idea in my head, but it took a lot of playing to get the shades of paper that were either bright enough of dark enough to show up the way I wanted them.  I backed everything with Stick It Adhesive Sheets. If you haven't tried Stick It, I highly recommend it.  It works great on small things, like words, and intricate things, like the Flip Flops. Just peel off the sticky layer, place it on the back of your paper, die cut your project, then peel off a second time to reveal the glue.  It's very easy to use and you can cut it to the exact size you need!

The sentiment was created with the Impression Obsession die, Hello Summer.  This has been my go-to die for summertime projects.  The words are a great size!  I love this die! 

I used 2 dies from the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles to mat and back the Flip Flops

Here are photos and links of the products used in the Dies R Us Store:






Have you heard about the Design Team call for the Dies R Us Inspiration team?  This is a wonderful team to be on!  You can find all the details here

Thanks for stopping by today!  Enjoy what's left of summer!
