Nine Patch & Leaf Thank you Card

Hello Dies R Us Fans,

Diane here to share a sweet Fall Thank you card using the Impression Obsession Scalloped Nine Patch die along with the Fall Mini Leaves die.  Fall is my very favorite time of year.  I love walking outside and feeling the crisp, fresh, cool, clean air.  I enjoy all the colors of Fall too.  The deep red, sun-kissed orange, bright yellow and all tones of brown... Amazing!  

Come see what I created today...




Card Recipe:

This card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (A2 size)  I began with a white 110 lb card base measuring 4 1/4 x 11 and scored it in half at 5 1/2.

Then I selected lots of Fall solid colored cardstock from my scrap bin.  Using the Mini Leaves die, DIE095-D by Impression Obsession I cut my leaves.

Next, I selected my back ground paper for my card.  I decided on a navy with white poka dots.  Then using the Scalloped Nine Patch die, DIE934-ZZ, I cut it out of 110 lb white cardstock and the navy paper.  This die cuts out the outer frame, the window frame and all the little squares.  I didn't use the white little squares, but instead replaced them with the navy squares using Scotch tape on the underside.  I kept the white two frames together using Scotch tape also.  Next, I popped up the Nine Patch using some foam tape.

Then I added all the pretty die cut leaves in the center of some of the windows.

Next, I stamped my sentiment.  I used "fired brick" Distress Ink along with the Lawn Fawn Scripty Sayings stamp.  Cut my sentiment into a strip, added a flag tail and adhered it to my card.  Using a couple of the larger leaves, I adhered them to the front of my sentiment and finished it with a golden sequin.

That's it.  An easy fun card to make.

Fairy Forest Greetings

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Lisa here, sharing a fun fairy card!  I am SO in love with Fairy Hugs products!  I used so many to make this card along with dies from Memory Box.


I gathered my supplies and couldn’t wait to start playing!


The Fairy Hugs papers have a kind of slick or shiny finish to them, so I stamped my images with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.  I let it sit for about an hour and then checked it and the ink was dry.  Yay!

I forgot to show in my first photo the Cuttlebug folder I used for my foil layer.



I hope this card inspires to get your fairy on with all of the fun and amazing stamps, papers and dies that Dies R Us carries.  --Lisa

Adriana Pop Up Easel Card

Hi everyoneSteph Ackerman here today wishing you a Happy Autumn.


Autumn is my time of year.  I love it.  

This Poppy die was perfect to create a wonderful Fall themed card.


This die comes with everything you need to create a Pop Up Easel Card.  It even folds flat to fit in a standard envelope.


Creating a card from green cardstock with the base die and the second layer, I then die cut the top layer from a script paper.   I inked this layer with Distress Inks in green, brown and red to simulate the colors of fall.


Using oval dies, I die cut 2 layers, stamping the phrase on the top layer.
The card was assembled with foam adhesives between the layers for dimension.

Thankful Card

 Hello Friends,

Diane here to share a my newest card, "Thankful".  The die I used for this card is so fun and cute.  It can be used for any occasion.  A "Welcome home" card for a loved one, a "Congratulations on your new home" card, add a pumpkin or two for a "Fall" card or a "Christmas tree" and it becomes a Christmas card.

This is a lovely die from Impressions Obsessions called "Saltbox Houses" and it's available at Dies R Us.

Come see what I created:


Card Recipe:

This card measures 4 1/4 x  5 1/2 (A2 sized).  I began with a white 110 lb card base measuring 4 1/4 x 11 and scored it in half at 5 1/2.

Next, I decided on the colors and designer paper to use.  You can use any background paper your heart desires. I chose a colorful floral pattern.  Next, cut the die out several times in matching colors.  I cut red, blue, yellow, grey, etc.  Then save and place all the pieces on your work station.

Next, I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Circle Frames to cut a white circle background for my houses. You can cut this out in ivory if that matches better with your paper selection. The "Lawn Fawn" die cuts two pieces.  I just used some tape on the back to adhere the center circle to the scalloped frame. 

Then, I put together the houses on the center front of my scalloped circle.  This takes a little bit of time to place and adhere all the tiny pieces together, but it's well worth the final result.  A tweezers is helpful in this step.

Once the houses are in place. It's time to stamp the sentiment.  I used a "Thankful" sentiment. I stamped it using black Momenta ink on yellow cardstock.  You can use any sentiment stamp you desire.

Then the last step is adding a little bling.  I chose to add some Graphic 45 gold flat back pearls, but you can add Nuvo drops, flowers, rhinestones, or sequins.

That's it. An easy, fun, quick card.

Happy Fall Ya'all!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Lisa here, sharing a fall themed card with lots of shimmer!  I combined products from Frantic Stamper, Lawn Fawn and Tutti Designs to make this card!


I started my project by choosing a fall-themed background die by Frantic Stamper called Swirling Leaves Stitched Background.  It's 3.5" by 5" so I ran it through my die cut machine twice on my 6.75" x 4.75" mat.  You can't even see the line between the two, the die lines up beautifully.


I decided I wanted to use a stamp since September is National Stamping Month, so I pulled out my Lawn Fawn Before 'N Afters stamp set.  


I chose to pair the stamp set with one of my favorite die sets, Tutti Designs Cross Stitch Banners.  Unfortunately, I somehow deleted the photos I took of the stamping, coloring and inking processes.  My apologies!  I do have a photo of the card before I adhered it together and embellished it.


I felt it needed something so I added the stones.

I hope this card inspires to make a fun fall card with any of the fun and amazing dies that Dies R Us carries.  --Lisa

Happy Fall Card

 Hi everyoneSteph Ackerman here today wishing you a Happy Fall.


As we head from summer into fall, I can almost hear the crunching leaves, can you?


I die cut the Maple Vine Frame from  Rinea Mocha Foiled Paper.  The foiled paper die cut beautifully and was the perfect frame for my fall card.


Using The Best Glue Ever, I adhered the frame to a panel of Rinea Emerald Foiled Paper.


Because leaves come in a multitude of colors, I die cut the frame again with a variety of foils, fussy cut some of the leaves and adhering them back to the main frame, giving the card some dimension.

Stamping an image, I colored her with Copic Markers, fussy cut her, matted her with cardstock for emphasis, then fussy cut her again.   Finally, I slipped her behind some leaves along the bottom of the card.

Iris Window Thank YouGreeting Card

 


Greetings!  Chris here and today I am excited to shared this stamped die cut window card I created for as a special thank you! I love creating windows on the front of my cards to give a peak at my stamped images. 

This card features 

Start by stamping your Sentimentally Yours - Clear Stamps - A6 - Iris Medley onto cardstock.  As this is a very detailed image you may want to use a stamping platform to allow you to re-stamp your image if needed. 



Color your image as desired with watercolor markers. Let image dry. 


Die cut 2nd largest circle from your Tutti Designs - Dotted Nesting Circles onto front of card. I cut the circle from the open inside of the card front. 


Adhere dry stamped to the inside of your card. You can see how the front window really highlights the image. 


From coordinating colored card stock die cut large and 2nd largest circle. 
                                        

Adhere largest circle to outside of card. 

Finish your card by stamping sentiment from Altenew - Stamps - Heartfelt Sentiments onto die cut circle and adhere to your card.  Add a flower and coordinating bow.  I hope you enjoyed this project.
