Thanks

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





Here are the dies that I used:



The first step is to line up the edge die with your card front.  I used a 5x7 card base.



Here are the die cuts:



I cut a piece of teal cardstock to 5x7 and attached that behind my card front so the die cut will stand out against the teal color.  I also attached my sentiment to the front of the card. 




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


Creative Expressions - Paper Cuts Collection - Daisy                                           Fairy Edger


Creative Expressions - Paper Cuts Collection - Daisy Fairy Edger



Sue Wilson Designs - Noble Expressions Collection -

Belated Birthday Wishes

Welcome back Dies R Us friends!
Darlene with you today sharing a belated birthday wishes card.  If you're anything like me, you need at least 1 or 2 of these cards in your stash.  Time goes by so fast that I seem to always be late with my birthday cards these days!  LOL


The dies I've used today are:

Paper Rose - Dies - Bunch Of Balloons

Sue Wilson Designs - Mini Sentiments Collection - Belated Birthday Wishes

Paper Rose - Dies - Stitched Rectangle Frames



I began my card by die cutting two white balloon panels
and gluing those together, then from scraps die cut just the balloon portion
of the die to do a little paper piecing.


Being sure to color my 'strings' before
gluing down my paper pieced balloons.

Next came the frame for my paper pieced balloon bunch.  Once again,
I've die cut two panels and glued them together for dimension.
I spotted a scrap of rainbow colored designer paper in my stash and thought
it would work nicely to showcase my balloon bunch.


So I adhered it to the back of my frame and cut off the excess.

My balloons have been popped up using Thermoweb 3d Foam Squares
Thermoweb - 3D Foam Squares - White .5" 88/Pkg

Did you notice the couple little extra stars?  They are the ones that popped out of the largest balloon in the die and I thought added a little extra coordination in my design.

I hope you've found inspiration from today's card!

Hello

Hello Dies R Us Fans!  Lori here with you today and I made this beachy card to share with you.



For this A2 card I started with White card stock for the base of the card.   I took a piece of blue marble paper, inked the edges with Faded Jeans distress ink and added that to the base of the card.  I took the Coral paper and the Frantic Stamper Freeform Wave die and cut out the paper, I added that to the Sand paper, I fussy cut along the top edge of the paper and then inked the edge with Brown ink and added that to the card.  I took a piece of Neenah Desert Storm paper and cut out the Impression Obsession Shell die set and cut out the shells and starfish.  I used a blending brush to apply Shaded Lilac distress oxide to one of the shells, Abandoned Coral distress oxide to the starfish and Tattered Rose distress oxide to the other shell.  Then I sprayed them Perfect Pearls Biscotti Mist and when they were dry I added them to the card.  I took the Coral paper and the Serendipity Hello die and cut it out three times, stacked the hello on top of each other and then covered it with Versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder twice and then added that to the card.  I just had to make a beachy card because I am not ready for the summer to end!

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:
