Dies R Us Frame It Challenge

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
 Well, just a couple of days that is.

The challenge at Dies R Us is "Frame It."

Grab our Badge!

I decided to make a card using a new product to me that are sold at Dies R Us called Cheapo Dies. They have a brand new blog you can find here, with some great examples of cards made with these dies. After seeing a few, I ordered some from Dies R Us in my very next order!

The first one I used is called the Good Luck Wagon, featured on my card. I find these dies cut out perfectly, and are really cute. I have LOTS of plans with that wagon besides St. Patrick's Day! I cut it out and put it together adhering it onto a Tutti Designs Dotted Nesting Rectangle, and Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangle. That created my frame for the challenge!

Dies R Us is now selling many other supplies besides dies including paper, inks, adhesives, etc. One of the things I also ordered was Nuvo Chrystal Drops.

Nuvo Crystal Drops - Metallic Bright Gold

I used the gold on the centers of the tiny shamrocks:

Here's a list of the dies I used:

Taylored Expressions Block Party Bunny

Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing a few cards I have been making with Taylored Expressions Block Party Bunnies. The first one I made with washi tape and Nuvo Chyrstal Drops for the bunny tails. The sentiment is also cut out with some paper I covered in washi.

This one I did some layering with MFT Blueprints #20.

And the last one I did in gingham.

I'll have more cards to share using this cute bunny die before Easter...I haven't even cracked open the stamp set that goes with it. It has the sweetest lil tails, faces, and bows!

Hi everyone! 

It's time for Joanne's challenge over at The Paper Players:

LOVE that badge with the paint cute!

I made another baby card with a couple of shades of pink. I used the sweet giraffe die from Marianne Design, I always have so much fun putting those together! I think the heart nose is adorable.

I added a larger heart from Cheery Lynn around her neck and the sentiment from Sue Wilson. Then I backed it on a Lil Inker stitched rectangle.

Happy Little Stampers March Challenge

It's time for Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies March challenge:

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

I used some alcohol ink backgrounds that I had made awhile ago for my card.
I used the darker blue with Taylored Expressions Falling Rain cutting plate. Then I cut it out with Tutti Designs dotted nesting squares,and made a thin frame.

The Birthday die is from Lil Inker. I adhered it to a lighter piece of blue alcohol ink paper, and then adhered that on top of the rain piece. I popped it up and added the sentiment from Simon Says, which was also cut out in alcohol ink paper.

I hope you will join us!

Framed Alcohol Ink Card

Hi everyone!

Today's card I made with alcohol inks and a stencil. I liked it so much I framed it!

I used a piece of glossy paper, and taped down my stencil onto my mat. Then I just dropped on different ink colors. After it dried, I moved my stencil around the paper repeating the process.

When it completely dried I added a frame I made with my Lil Inker stitched rectangles. Then I adhered the sentiment from Memory Box.

I just couldn't get a great picture of the true colors and the beautiful shine.

Have a great day!
