CELEBRATE WITH DIES R US

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a fun Christmas card that is really easy to make.


To make this card I used paper from American Crafts Peppermint Express 12x12 paper pad. 

My back panel is cut to 4"x5.25".

 My grey piece is cut to 4"x2.5". The Blue dot panel is cut to 3.75" x 2.25".
 I then cut this blue/gray panel 1.25" from the right side.

 Layer the panels on the card base which is white cardstock top folded to 4.25" x 5.5".

My sentiment is Elizabeth Craft Designs "Celebrate Die", cut 3 times on red cardstock and 1 time on Red Chrome cardstock and layered for dimension. 

All panels and layers were put together using ScraPerfect
 Best Glue Ever. I added some 
Nuvo Drops is Duck Egg Blue and 
Autumn Red for accents.

Merry Christmas in Blue

Hey there!
It's Judy here to share a Christmas card 
I created by combining dies from
Precious Marieke and Memory Box.



I gathered my materials to include the 4 die sets I used
plus a 5.5 x 5.5 inch card base, patterned paper, 
 blue matte metallic card stock, green metallic card stock,
 white card stock and some iridescent glitter glue.


Next, I did my die cutting.
I cut the frame and sentiment out of the blue card stock.
I cut the candle die 3 times, using the white, blue and green card stocks.
I cut 1 large flower, 3 medium and small flowers.


I assembled the candles using the white die cut as a base
and adhered the blue next. With the green, I snipped off the
candle portion, just leaving the foliage and
adhered to the blue layer. I ended up coloring the
flames of the candles with gold glitter gel pen.
I then layered the flowers, making 1 large and 2 medium sized,
using brads with gem centers.
I added some glitter glue to the flowers of a little sparkle.


Next, I assembled the card base by matting the patterned paper
with the blue matte metallic card stock and adhering to the card base.

Next I added the frame to the background
and layered the candles on the bottom edge.


I added the flowers to the candle foliage
and lastly, cut and matted a thin strip
of white card stock, adhered the sentiment
and applied to the lower portion of the card.

Bauble Swag

Hello Dies R Us Friends!  Lori here with you today and I have a Christmas card to share with you today.


For this A2 card I started with Neenah Desert Storm paper to make the base of the card.


I used Neenah Desert Storm paper for the base of the card.  I took a piece of Maja Christmas Season paper, inked the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink and added that to the card.


I cut out the Tutti Designs Bauble Swag die in Green and Cranberry paper.  I fussy cut away the evergreen boughs on the Cranberry cut out and added that to the top of the Green ornament.  I cut out the Serendipity Believe die with more of the Cranberry paper and I added the Bauble Swag to the top of the paper and I added the Believe right under the Bauble Swag.  I then took some 
Green gems and added them to the Bauble Swag.

Always Grateful Cards

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



Tutti Designs has some wonderful dies and this particular Grateful die is perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving season. 


I die cut the image from gray and orange cardstocks, then used the opposite color to fill in the pumpkins, giving them definition.  


For additional definition, I die cut green cardstock for the leaf sprays.   Using The Best Glue Ever, I adhered the layers together.


The die cuts are approximately 4" square and are perfect for the focal points of my cards.  The panels were inked with brown ink then matted with cardstock.  I created  5 1/2" square cards, added pattern papers and strips of burlap across the centers, placing the panels on top.




To finish, I added gems to the flowers using The Best Glue Ever.

A Unicorn Christmas!

Hello all, Samantha here!

I hope you take a second and stop by the Dies R Us store because there are SO MANY GOODIES! 

Today, I am sharing a card I made for Christmas. It's got a Unicorn, and sparkle and glitter! It's for my daughter, and right up her ally with all the *BLING*

Lately, I just can't create a card without using my memento inks! Have I mentioned how much I love them?? 



I started this card with one of my newest die and stamp set by Lawn Fawn  called  Winter Unicorn Die and Winter Unicorn Stamps.

This card, also gave me the opportunity to bust out my copics! It's been a while since I've gotten to play with those. I decided to use a teal, purple, and pink combo for the unicorn.


Although this exact snowflake border is not in the store - this one is amazing, and will be purchased for myself in the very near future!


To stick the snowflake border back on to the card, I used BRIGHT magenta glitter washi tape!




To finish off the card, I created my own scalloped wave (Just by cutting it into a scrap piece of paper) and used Sweet Plum and Grape Jelly Memento Inks to create this "mystical clouds" background.

The stamp set also comes with a cute tiny heart and star stamp that I used to stamp over the "clouds" to finish off my background. I used the Thermoweb Adhesive Foam Squares to make my little unicorn pop!
