Pumpkin Fairy House


Hello Dies R Us Friends!!  Lori here with you today and I made a card with the Tutti Designs Pumpkin Fairy House and I just think this die is so much fun!


For this A2 card I started by making the base of the card with White card Stock.  Then I took a piece of watercolor paper, a cloud stencil, a blending brush and some Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac distress oxides and blended them onto the paper.


Then I took some Concord Grape distress oxide and blended that over the top.


I took some Black Soot distress oxide and blended that over the clouds.



I took some Twisted Citron distress oxide and applied that to the bottom part of the paper.



I inked around the edges and the bottom of the paper with Black Soot distress oxide and then spritzed it with water and heat dried it with my heat tool and attached that to the base of the cared.  I gathered my dies together.


I cut out the Cat die with black paper and the Pumpkin Fairy House die and the Small Mushrooms die with white paper and then colored them with Copic markers and added them to the card.


I stamped the the sentiment with VersaFine Clair Verdant ink and then I put some embossing powder on top and set it with my heat tool.  I took one of the Lavinia Fairy Foragers stamps and stamped it with Versamark and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

Autumn Window

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

I found this amazing Tutti Designs die,  and since Fall is in the air, it was the perfect time to use     this die.


Begin by creating a square card from gold cardstock.  Add a striped layer on the card base.  Mat the acorn paper with cardstock and wrap with twine before adding it to the card.  
  


Using the Autumn Window die, die cut it 3 times from kraft, green and orange cardstock.


Using the orange die cut as the base, carefully cut the kraft and green layers.  Ink all layers with brown ink and assemble to the base image with The Best Glue Ever.  Adhere yellow paper behind the pumpkins and a scrap of white behind the windows.


Die cut an oval from pattern paper and place the window on top.  Add the oval die to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.


Stamp Fall on white cardstock.  Die cut with an oval die, mat with a larger oval and add to the card.

Halloween Card Set

Hello all, Samantha here!

I am so excited to be one of the newest DT member's here at Dies R Us

Today, I am sharing a card set I made for Halloween. They were quick to put together, but have such a cool effect. I personally love creating backgrounds with the Memento Inks because you can create so many different scenes!



My first step was to cut out a circle to use it as a mask to create the moon!
I created my scene with the colors from light to dark - Sweet Plum, Grape Jelly, Elderberry, Paris Dusk, London Fog, Tuxedo Black

My next step was to use my Cut 'n' Boss to cut out all my different dies. Once those were cut, I assembled it to the card and placed the witch over the moon. I used some scrap yellow cardstock to place behind the pumpkins and the haunted house - just to give it a little PIZAZZ! 

 I actually made a set of 6, 2 of each scene! The little ghosts were actually part of a Halloween Party Paper Cut out set.

Glittered Snowman

Hi there, Shona back with you today with another glittered project for Christmas. Today I chose to use the Tutti Designs Arched Fir Branch with the Tutti Designs Jolly Snowman peeking out from behind.


Here are the two dies I used on my card today:




For my background I started with the Sizzix Plaid and Snowflake embossing folder set, running the snowflake folder through my machine.


Next I worked on the snowman. First I die cut him from a piece of white cardstock applied with a layer of Super Adhesive Tape.   


Different parts of him were then cut from red, green, orange and black cardstock to "color" him in.


The protective backing of the adhesive was picked off the scarf, and inlaid with the red card, and I continued until all the colors were done.


Then I picked off the outline of the die cut and put down Snow White flocking.


I used Cherry Sparkle and Irish Sparkle to add to the inlaid pieces of the scarf and hat.



Twinkling Clouds was applied to the little swirls on his belly, but the contrast in the design did not show up as well as I'd have liked, so I decided to redo his belly. I die cut a piece of white cardstock layered with the Super Adhesive Tape again and then cut out the shape of the belly and picked out the little swirls.


This time the details showed up much better!



The Arched Fir Branch was then die cut from olive green cardstock and attached to the top of the front panel. The snowman was tucked under the fir branch with mounting tape.



The card front was layered to red before being layered to the card front. Happy Holidays from Sparkle N Sprinkle Sayings Set 223 was stamped along the bottom in Memento Love Letter Ink and that finished my card off for today. 

Here is a list of the products that I used today:
