Winter Wishes

Tracy here with you and I've got another Christmas card to share with you today and show you another way to use your dies. It's never to early to start on your Holiday cards! 


I wanted the Poinsettias in this Tutti die cut to be red so I decided to emboss some red cardstock using the Poinsettia Corner die and then die cut it using some white cardstock.


I then fussy cut the poinsettias out of the red cardstock. It wasn't easy and they don't look very pretty by themselves.


Then, using some ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever, I glued the fussy cut pieces to the back of the white die cut.


To put the card together, I used a white card base and embossed some light blue cardstock with a snowfall embossing folder. It really made the Poinsettia Corner die cut pop. The sentiment, from Lawn Fawn's Winter Scripty Sentiments, was stamped and embossed.

Supplies Used


Tutti Designs - Dies - Poinsettia Corner


Lawn Fawn - Winter Scripty Sentiments Stamps


Best Glue Ever

You Are Fabulous!

Hello, crafty friends! It's Julie with you today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  I'm really excited to share today's card with you!  The Dies R Us Store has so many different manufacturer's dies for sale in it, and one that they have all the time now is Birch Press Design.  I am in love with these dies!!

Here's what I created using the 4 layers of the Regal Peacock die set:


Here's a picture of the supplies I used on this card.  Along with the Regal Peacock die set from Birch Press Design,  I also used a 'Fabulous' word die from Frantic Stamper, and a Birch Press Design stamp set called, "Just Because" (ordered during a special pre-sale event).

I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out what colors I thought I would use, then ended up changing my mind as I went along.  This picture shows what the dies look like, and what I thought I was going to use for the layers.  They ended up being a bit different than this in the end:

Here are the pieces once they've been die cut.  I have several pieces with different color options because I still wasn't sure which would look best with the background paper I had in mind:

Once I had them die cut, it was time to assemble that glorious peacock tail.  I used Scraperfect Best Glue Ever for all the layers except the top layer.  For that layer, I used Stick It Adhesive Sheets.

Here's the peacock  (still unsure of body color):

I wanted to add the words "You are"  to the "Fabulous" sentiment.  So, I only needed the first 2 words of the sentiment stamp I was using. I could have cut the stamp apart, but decided to mask it instead.  Here, you can see I covered the portion of the stamp I didn't want to use with tape.  Once I inked the stamp, I removed the tape, and could then stamp just the two words I wanted:


In the end, I thought the dark bodied peacock had the most contrast against the paper I used, so that's the one I used.  It took me a long time to decide!

Supplies used on this card found in the Dies R Us Store:

Longing to See You

Hi everyone, Steph back with another project for Dies R Us.

Creating a scene is easy with the new Stampendous stamp and die collections.


Create a square card from blue cardstock.  Using the main die, die cut the center of the card.


Using Lawn Fawn circle dies, die cut the circles needed for the center of the card and the border around the main die in the card front.


Stamp a line of trees on the circle die.


Mat the panel with the larger die and ink in the sky and grass.  Using the tree top die, create clouds.


Die cut the tree toppers from green cardstock and add to the front of the card.  Stamp and punch one of the sentiments, adding it to the right side.


Stamp the giraffe and color with Copic Markers.  Die cut and add to card front.  Ink around the card with brown ink.

PICK OF THE PATCH




Hello and welcome, Wendy here today with a cute interactive card using lots if Lawn Fawn products found here in the store .
The spinning wheel features 4 different pumpkin faces that spin around to reveal in the pumpkin cut out.
 I used distress inks to blend a fall evening background
I then stamped several pumpkins and colored all the images with Copic markers
Lawn Fawn recently came out with a stencil to help line up your images, ingenious !

to assemble you add a small brad to the 2  circles, then add foam dots and line up your images
I chose to keep the whole piece of my blended background and add it to the card base 
lastly foam tape is added to the panel so that the wheel has room to spin


I added corn stalks to the background for more interest they are from Frantic Stamper found here in the store
