Dies R Us Birthday Challenge

Hi everyone!

Dies R Us has a fun Birthday challenge starting today! Everyone needs Birthday cards in their stash (seems like I never have enough) so I think the gallery will be full. I can't wait to see all the Birthday ideas using dies from the Dies R Us store.

Our Challenge Blog

I used some of Cheery Lynn's dies, I've been busy making tons of cards with their awesome retro release. I used the Picture Perfect camera and the wonky stars from the Retro Sign dies.

I cut some fun camera themed paper with Lawn Fawn's Hillside Border dies. I use that set for all kinds of things, not just for making scenes.So versatile!

Here's a list of the dies from Dies R Us:

I hope you will join us!!!

Tutti Designs CAS Happy Mail

Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing a clean and simple card I made with Tutti Designs basic shape dies.

First I cut out a scalloped circle in white, a larger one in blue, and adhered them together.

TUTTI-419 Scalloped Stitched Nesting Circles

Then I cut out a dotted square in white.

TUTTI-416 Dotted Nesting Squares

After stamping the cute panda on some white paper, I colored him with some copics, and fussy cut him out. 

I stamped the sentiment "Yay happy mail!" 
onto the circle and added the panda. Then I adhered it all to the card along with a few enamel dots. 

Here's a list of the dies I used:

Have a great day!

Happy 4th of July

Hi everyone! Are you ready for the 4th?

 I think I am...I just ran into town and braved the crowds of tourists to pick up last minute groceries. It's raining out right now with more storms headed our way for the 4th. But rain or shine we always grill and watch the fireworks! I can only remember one time that the fireworks were has to really be pouring out. Fingers crossed!

I made this festive 4th of July card with Cheery Lynn's Chevron plate in red, white and blue. The stitched rectangle and stars are also from Cheery Lynn. The word "home" is from Technique Tuesday.

I have one more 4th of July card to share, and that will be posted on Sunday for The Paper Players 2nd week of celebration for our 400th challenge. I hope you will join us!

 I had so much fun making 4th cards this year....and I'm already excited to make some more for next 4th of July. One of my friends just got a new statue of Liberty die...can't wait to borrow it!

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
