Pretty in Purple

Good morning, Colleen from Scrappin Granny sharing with you a very fun and frilly card.  I love working with layers and the dies I used were great for this technique.




I started with my purple and lavender papers and used the African Circle by Amy Designs.  I actually cut everything with the lavender cardstock, remember you can always turn them over and use the backside if you want a different color.  




For the next part, I used a piece of ribbon strung through a needle and threaded it through the holes in the circle.



After I had that done then I adhered it down using The Best Glue Ever.




Next I wanted some flowers and vines so I cut all of that out using white cardstock.  The vine was cut out using the Vine die by Tutti Designs and I used  Embellishment #1 by Cherry Lynn to cut out the flowers.





After adding the flowers just added the sentiment, and then I went over the sentiment with purple Liquid Pearls and added the liquid pearls to the center of each flower.

Thanksgiving Card

Tracy here today with my first post for Dies R Us. I am so excited to be on this amazing team. So let's get to my first project.

Fall is my favorite time of year so I had to start with a fall card using some Lawn Fawn Dies and Paper along with several Distress Oxide inks.


I started by taking a white piece of cardstock and 6 different colors of my Distress Oxide Inks and applied the inks in a random pattern overlapping them to get some beautiful fall colors. I then used that piece of cardstock to cut out the leaves for the wreath.




For the base of the wreath I used a spring sprig die from Lawn Fawn and cut that out of brown cardstock even though it doesn't show in the final result.


I then assembled the wreath with all the leaves and added a twine bow at the bottom and some orange stickles around the wreath to give it some bling. I used an old Sizzix Thinlets Mixed Media die to cut out a piece of orange cardstock and added a piece of Lawn Fawn Watercolor paper behind it. I then assembled the card on a kraft card base and since I had a few leaves left over I tucked them into the bottom left corner. I added the stamped and embossed sentiment and it was done.


Supplies Used:

Lawn Fawn - Stitched Leaves Dies

Lawn Fawn - Spring Sprig Dies

Lawn Fawn - Paper Pad - 6

Distress Oxide Ink Pad - Spiced Marmalade
Distress Oxide Ink Pad - Fossilized Amber

Distress Oxide Ink Pad - Peeled Paint
Distress Oxide Ink Pad - Fired Brick
Distress Oxide Ink Pad - Lucky Clover
Distress Oxide Ink Pad - Vintage Photo

So Grateful! (to be here!)

Hello, fellow paper crafters!  It's Julie with you today with my first post for Dies R Us.  I'm super excited to be sharing with you!

I love shaped cards!  If you visit my blog, Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers, you'll see many shaped cards. You can use many different dies to make shaped cards.  Follow this post, and I'll show you how.

First, the finished card, then how I did it --



Here's  the supplies I used (more details later):


I created the card base using the largest Spellbinders die.  Pictured below is how I did it.
Notice that I left one edge of the die hanging off the paper, which is already folded in 2, like the card base.  I like to use washi tape to hold my dies in place.  You can easily remove it after you run it through your die cutting machine.

Here's the card base after it's cut out.  I cut out another piece of paper using this same die and tape it over the top, hiding the flat edge on the left.

Here's the card again!  A fun shape, easily constructed.

Supplies found in the Dies R Us Store:

Wish Big!

Hello!
Lisa back again to share a cute card I created using Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie Stamps & Dies, Lawn Fawn Perfect Plaid Rainbow 6x6 Paper Pad and the Best Glue Ever.
I layered a few of the papers from the 6x6 paper pad and added some machine stitching. I stamped the elephants on the purple plaid paper using black ink and then using the die, cut them out. I added a strip of green plaid paper to the bottom of my card and snipped it to mimic grass. I stamped my sentiment right on my paper:


I stamped a few hearts on turquoise paper and popped them up with foam tape to add some dimension:


I used the Best Glue Ever for my adhesive to put this card together.

As you can see from my card, those stamps and dies are just the cutest!
Here are the products I used:

Happy Fall with Lawn Fawn


Hi Everyone and Happy Fall! The leaves are just starting the change over here in sunny Michigan, would you believe it's in the 80s here this week (50's last week LOL). Anyway I'm here today with a storybook card. I thought I'd create a cute little fall scene to send over to my little nephew.

I'm using two different sets of lawn fawn stamps and dies here that coordinate nicely together.
I started out with an old discontinued storybook die I had in my stash, but you could easily recreate your own storybook scene with any square or rectangle dies!

After I had the die cut scene I traced it with a pencil to set up my stamping. I used distress oxide inks to stamp the background images ( those hearts end up getting covered up ).


Once the scene was set, I stamped, colored, and die cut out all my little critters and pieces and started playing around and seeing where everyone fit.


On the finished card, the hearts ended up getting covered with some lawn fawn wood grain card stock. Which is where I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, a mix of "happy" from one set and "fall" from another 😂



I embellished the leaves a little with a gold gel pen as well, to add a little more interest.




Thanks for stopping by today, and Happy Fall!
