My Luv Bug



Hello Fellow Crafter's!! It's Dawn with you today!! I have a kind of a Valentine card to share with you.




 Here's a picture of the supplies I used. I'll link them at the end of this post:



Here are all the pieces cut, but not yet assembled:



I started out by creating my background piece.  I cut a piece of white card stock to 5 3/4 x 5 3/4.  I used Lawn Fawn Lacy Borders dies for this step.  Unfortunately this die is NOT available in the store. But you can use any border die that you want.  A similar die in the store is Lawn Fawn Scalloped Border Dies. I ran the dies thru my Gemini die cutting machine using the rubber mat so it wouldn't cut the card stock, just emboss the card stock.  I continued this until the whole piece was done. 



I then added my frames and sentiment to the card front:

Love You Forever...

Hello DRU Fans! This is America, back to share a Love Card!


I have used 3 die-cutting sets from Sue Wilson's fab collections.  

I started with die-cutting the very first layer from a golden gilded sheet I had previously prepapred, then sprayed the back of the die-cut with a strong adhesive to adhere over the gilded panel.

Next, I colored the Rose Die-Cut openings directly onto the Gilding Flakes using liquid crystal tints. Then repeated the color applications in-between drying times for a richer look.  Wasnt worried about the color running over the lines at this point since any mistakes will be covered after the extra die-cut layers get added later.

Next,  I cut extra die-cut Rose Squares out of black cardstock to stack, layer and place over the colored Rose panel. This will give the flower the illusion of depth.

At this point, Acetate was adhered to the back of one of the layers. Another die-cut layer in black was added to the colored panel. 

Next step, using a dry embossed sheet from a bed of roses embossing folder, I polished the raised portions of the embossing with a Golden Gilding Polish. Did this simply by rubbing the sponge gently over the raised areas.

Next, I die-cut the word "LOVE" several times, (from SW's Perspectives Love Collection). And another die-cut layer from the embossed/ polished panel to place on the top of the raised word.  A closer look below shows the fab texture and polished shine.

Next I adhered the stacked Rose panel to my cardfront base then topped this with a black die-cut frame.  The mini word openings "You" and "Forever" were die-cut directly directly onto this frame and backed the word's openings with leftover pieces from the same embossed/polished sheet. This helps to carry the look throughout the design.

Gold flatback gems are the final finishing touches.
Apologies as the sparkling gold and reflection from the scetate arent showing well in these photos.

That's it! Hope you give these fun Cutting Dies a try!

It's soccer time

Colleen her from Scrappin Granny sharing with you a birthday card great for a young child or grown man who loves soccer.




I started with paper from the Doodlebug Design Inc. called Goal.



I tried something I have never done before.  I cut out the soccer player, the edge and the back of the sentiment from vinyl.

The backside of the this wonderful paper had the sentiment which I just cut out and put on the vinyl.



I used the soccer player die by Amy Design to cut out the two soccer players.


I wanted a edge so I used one of the pieces from  Striped Swirl Edger by Creative Expressions and cut out some more vinyl.


The card is finished and it was fun, fast and easy to create.

Valentine's Day Card

Tracy here today with a Valentine's Day card for you. I decided to go with a non-traditional color for a change.





I love this heart and flower die by Cheapo Dies but I wanted to cut it using two different papers. I cut it twice using white cardstock and a pink printed paper. Then I cut the flowered area off the pink die cuts and layered them on top of the white cardstock die cuts using some ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever with the ScraPerfect No Clog Small Writing Tip.


I layered the heart on some deep purple cardstock that I die cut using the Frantic Stamper Stitched Rounded Rectangles dies. Layered that on a lighter purple cardstock that I had added some washi tape to and used a white base for the card. Digging through my stash I found the little pink heart sequins and added some Nuvo Drops in pink to the flowers.

Supplies Used:


Cheapo Dies - Heart Frame


Frantic Stamper - Dies - Stitched Rounded Rectangles


Nuvo Crystal Drops - Gloss Carnation Pink


Best Glue Ever


Scraperfect - No Clog Writing Cap - Small

Congratulations

Hello everyone, Doni here!

Today, I'd like to share with you a wedding card.  
It's always nice to have a few of these on hand.

I love the black/white/gold color scheme, 
you could also personalize it by using the wedding party's colors.
I have used a Cheery Lynn Lattice Die Frame no longer available but, you can substitute another frame like this Paper Rose frame. 
Paper Rose - Dies - Quatrefoil Background 1

Start by layering the lattice over a 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 piece of matching cardstock.

Next, layer the circle alternating the colors and finishing with the Mr. & Mrs. on top.
Set this aside for the moment.

Hand cut a fish tail banner measuring 1 3/4 by 4 , cutting straight up the bottom center
and then cut from each bottom corner into where your straight cut ends. this makes a fish tail. 
Layer this banner  like you did the outside of the circle.
Die cut your Congratulations word.
Now assemble the front  and adhere all to a black card base.

Below, you'll find the list of the supplies I used with links to the Dies R Us Store for your convenience.
Sue Wilson Designs - Shadow Boxes -  Mr. & Mrs. 
Impression Obsession - Dies - Congratulations 
Paper Rose - Dies - Stitched Circles 

 I hope I was able to inspire you to use your dies, create a project and come play along at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog for a chance to win a gift voucher to the Dies R Us Store.  A new challenge begins on the first and fifteenth of every month.  Be sure to Follow Us on Facebook too and don't forget that you will find loads of inspiration on our Pinterest Page.
