Love

Hi everyone, Deanna here with another quick and easy card that I made for the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog, that could be used for Valentine's Day, an Anniversary, Wedding, or anytime you want to tell someone you love them.  Here is what I made.


To make my card, I started out with a reddish pink card stock that I cut and scored to make a 4 1/4"  5 1/2" card base.  Next I die cut my image from white card stock.


This die measures about 5 1/4" across and is from the Tutti Designs Hanging Love die.  I did use the adapter plate when I cut this die as it has some very small and fine detail cutting areas. It is so worth getting the adapter plate and you can use it with other fine detail dies besides Tutti Designs and it makes for a much better cut of all the fine detail dies out there like Tutti Designs.

Next I adhered the die cut to my card base and added some rhinestones and the card was done.

Bird Tapestry

Deanna here with another inspirational post for the Dies R Us blog.  Here is what I have for you today.

To make my card I started with a piece of yellow card stock and using the biggest die in the Lawn Fawn Stitched Stackable Rectangle dies cut a piece of card stock 4 1/4" X 5 1/2".  I used some Post-it tape to hold the die in place while cutting it.

Next I took some lavender card stock and using the Bird Tapestry die from Tutti Designs and die cut may bird mat. Again I used some removable Post-It tape to hold the die in place while I cut it.

To finish my card I adhered the tapestry layer to the stitched rectangle layer and then added everything to some yellow card stock that was cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.
I chose not to add a sentiment to my card at this time because there are just so many possible occasions that you could use this card.  I think it would be perfect for a birthday, just because, hello, sympathy, get well . . . The list is endless.

Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone, Deanna here with another inspirational post for the CardzTV Gallery. I am sure you were expecting another Holiday card but that isn't what you are getting.  A friend of mine recently had a birthday and here is the card I made.

My card base is Kraft card stock cut and folded to make a  4 1/4 X 5 1/2" card.  I added a black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and a piece of patterned paper cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8".  My image is a print and cut image from the Silhouette Store.  I cut the image at 3.75".  My sentiment is from the CardzTV Good Times stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone, Deanna here with another inspirational project for the Dies R Us blog.  Here is what I have for you today.

This fun die is the Tutti Design Snow Globe Scene die. Many of these dies are very intricate dies to cut.  Tutti Designs makes a metal adapter plate to use when cutting these dies.





The adapter plate acts as a shim to help ensure these dies cut properly the first time. I layer my base plate, then my no cut cutting pad, then my die face up. Next I put the card stock on top of the die then my cutting plate and then my metal adapter plate.  I then run everything through my die cut machine and get a perfect cut. You can use this adapter plate with other intricate dies besides Tutti Designs.

For the card itself, I used some distress watercolor paper and stormy sky and chipped sapphire distress and inked about half to two thirds of the paper to create a sky for my card.  I lightly spritzed it with some water to distress the sky a bit. The distress watercolor paper is pre cut to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2".

Once I had the sky ready, I rounded the corners of the card stock and attached my snow globe die.

Now, what's a snowy scene without some glitter.  So I used my zig two way glue pen to apply some adhesive to the snow areas of the die cut and applied some Hero Arts prisma glitter to the areas.

Next I cut a white card and scored it to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  I rounded the corners so they matched the card front.  I attached the card front to my card base.  I added some snowflake sequence to the card and it was finished.

Gingerbread Christmas

Hey everyone, Deanna here with another inspirational post for the CardzTV Designer Gallery blog.  Here is what I have for you today.

I started with a white card base cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card. I added a red mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and the patterned paper mat cut at 3 3/4" x 5.  My little gingerbread girl in the box is a print and cut image from the silhouette store.  I cut my gingerbread girl at 3 3/4" and adhered her to my card front.  I added some wink of stella pen to the ornament to make them sparkle.  The sentiment was stamped from the Gingerbread Christmas stamp set.

"Tis the Season


Deanna here with another project for the Dies R Us Inspirational blog.  Here is what I have for you today.


For my card I started with some white card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  Next I added a red mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4".  Finally I added some pattern paper cut at 3 3/4" X 5".

Next came the ornament.  The dies for this ornament are from Dee's Distinctively.  Be sure to check out all her dies, they are really great dies.  This particular die is called Dee's Distinctively Elrose Ornament Large. This die cuts out just the flourished top part of the ornament.  To get the solid background for the die I used the Elrose Ornament set. I die cut both pieces using my Big Shot and adhered them together.

To finish my card I adhered the ornament straight to my card.  I used my Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen over the red layer of the ornament to give it some sparkle.
