Dog Days
Topic: Die Cuts

Challenge: Make cards on the theme 'dogs'

I started out wanting to stamp something but only have two dog stamps and they are both kind of 'cartoon-y'. Instead I decided to do a silhouette and went back to making my 'thumb puppies' to get them (that's where you trace around your crooked thumb and add your choice of ears to create a dog head)

I cut the dog heads from black cardstock, used two nestabilities dies to make white  frames and attached them to a red 'splotched' card base.

I had a stamp of 4 paw prints and used this to make corner elements using Staz-On ink.

In Great Shape
Topic: Die Cuts

As part of a swap of diecuts some time back I was given a butterfly cut from a folded base. It was the perfect size to make a card so that's what I did. I covered the entire surface with crumpled tissue with a rose imprint. Then I covered that with lots of scrolly gold peeloff stickers and some gold peeloff butterflies.

The back layer is slightly larger than the front leaving a border showing all around. You can't see it in the photo because of the way the card is standing, but the back layer has a gold border using a Krylon marker all around. This gives a gold border to the front when the card is closed.

Just Ride
Topic: Die Cuts

Some time ago I made a skateboard element for a card using a diecut oval tag, some round punches, hole reinforcements and eyelets. I made several of these while I had the supplies out and set aside some for later use. It is now later.

For this first one I used a rubon border to decorate the center of the board and droppes it onto a plaid background. I also added a gold peel-off greeting at the top. This might be good for a younger boy.

For an older boy, I selected a more stark background and added a band of text about boys. This skateboard is popped up on foam squares and I added the silver peel-off text directly on the deck.

I like how the same element can span a wide age-difference.

Spring Flowers
Topic: Die Cuts

Assignment: Spring card

This beautiful paper was from a pad of diecut pages. I just trimmed it to fit the standard card size. The folded card base was selected to match the floral background (a lucky find, actually). I added a matching paper with fine stripes and then had another serendipity by running across the swirl diecut.

The text is a fabric sticker. I added sticker acrylic milky flowers to the centers of all the printed ones and then added pastel colored pearl stickers to the centers of these.

Love this card!

Missing Ewe
Topic: Die Cuts

This is one of those ideas I sketched out on my church bulletin (bad girl) and it turned out exactly like I wanted!

I used scalloped circle nextabilities in every other size and then ran them through the d'vine swirls Cuttlebug folder. I used oval nestabilities for the faces and the ears (cut in half). Then the parts are layered with foam dots and the faces are drawn on with white pen.

The 'missing' is a portion of a Cuttlebug diecut and the 'ewe' is letter stickers. I added a ribbon bow to the girl sheep.

These make me laugh.

Berry Basket
Topic: Die Cuts

More of the victorian illustrations, this time framed out in green. Otherwise the process was the same as yesterday's cards.

I also used the same peel-off greetings.

Ding Dong Bells
Topic: Die Cuts

A few years back someone sent to me a big stack of 'victorian' illustrations that are framed in either green or red and cut out save for little bridge pieces that connect the picture to the frame.

For these I used a nestability die to create an aperture for it in a bronze toned cardstock, rounded the corners, and raised it up on foam dots over cream cardstock. This background lets the bridges blend in.

The text is gold peel-off stickers.

Happiness for Today
Topic: Die Cuts

Lovin' layers lately...

Since I had a scrap of shimmery parchment with butterflies I decided to use it as a background and then used a Spellbinders die to cut and emboss a butterfly out of shimmery cardstock. Two tones of teal cardstock and a diecut label with organza ribbon pull it all together.

I like to pull up the butterfly wings and attach it only at the body so there is dimensionality to the card. Then I added 4 oval teal rhinestones for the body.

Light of Friendship
Topic: Die Cuts

This is the LAST scrap of this lovely paper so I decided to use it as a feature. I used two Nestabilites dies together to create the yellow frame and a circle punch to make the green center piece.

Stacking, stacking and more stacking with colors drawn from the feature paper. I had the little strip of text, cut from a scrapbook paper, in the scrap bin. Everything is mounted with pop-dots and I trimmed it up with gold peel-off stickers.

White Tail
Topic: Die Cuts

Another year over means I have calendar pictures to play with again! This white tail deer was one of a pair on November's page. I die cut with a Nestability and then layered over a brown and a cream of the same size but stacked with pop-dots for dimension. The cream is completely hidden in the straight-on view. 

I used the Cuttlebug cutting die 'ornamental ironwork' for the bottom border, cut from cram cardstock.

The leaves are stacked gold stickers and I drew in a faint border with marker.

Special Friendship
Topic: Die Cuts

Mixing a little collage with die cuts and a bit of stamping, as well!

You might even recognize some of these elements as left-overs from other recent projects. LOVE that background paper... and the lacy trim, LOVE the shaped diecut centerpiece and the button brads. 

LOVE the way all these elements came together!

A Sight To See
Topic: Die Cuts

On a little studio clean-up project I found these left-over flowers printed from a sheet by Fred She Said. Layers from the bottom up:

Purple folded cardstock, vellum printed with gold dragonflies tied to cardstock with green ribbon, leaves creased with Scor-Pal, foldy flowers creased and layered with rhinestone brads. 

The test is  thick clear acrylic sticker.
