Happiness is a Glass of Wine

I've decided to add some wine themed cards to my Etsy shop and thought I would share the first one here on my blog as well. 

My card is a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" white card base.  I used a mini chicken wire stencil and some Fossilized Amber distress ink with a Clarity stencil brush to create a background for my card.  I die cut the bottle as well a the label and cork and a glass  I added some glossy accents to the wine glass to give it a more dimensional appearance and so that it looked more like glass.  My sentiment is stamped with some Memento Tuxedo black ink.  Quick and easy card.  Hope you like it.

Happy Valentine's Day

Deanna here with a fun little treat box that is quick and easy to make for your Valentine.  Here is what I have.

To make my box I used a die from Lawn Fawn but I checked and both Cricut Access and Silhouette have similar boxes so you can still make this without the die.  To make the box, I cut two pieces of the box out of some 6" X 6" patterned paper.  I folded all of the score lines, added tape to the tabs and adhered the box together.  It was a quick and easy project for those last minute gifts.  My box held two fun size candy bars.  I die cut a heart tag and stamped it with the Happy Valentine's Day stamp from the Cardz TV Be My Valentine stamp set.

Heartfelt Wishes

Deanna here with a more masculine card today for the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog.  Here is what I have for you today.


To make my card I started with some Kraft card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" side fold card.  Next I added a green mat cut at 4 1/8" X 5 3/8" and a patterned paper mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4".

For the image on the card I started by die cutting the Memory Box Wildflower Oval Frame die out of some green card stock.

 For the blue layer I noticed that the Wildflower die works with the Open Studio Oval dies.  All I did was match up the size, in this case 4.8" X 3.6" and die cut an oval die using my Open Studio Stitched Oval Layers dies.




































Finally I cut the Poppy Stamps Grazing Deer die out of some brown and Kraft card stock.

I adhered my dies to my card front and stamped me sentiment.  I think this is a great masculine card for a birthday, happy valentines day, congratulations or just about any other occasion.

Be Mine

Deanna here with another fun project for the Dies R Us inspirational blog.  Here is what I made for you today.



To make the card I started out with some pink card stock that I cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  Next I added a black mat cut at 4 1/8" X 5 3/8".  Then I cut and embossed a piece of white card stock that was 4" X 5 1/4".



Next I die cut the Tutti Design Heart Flower Garden die out of some more of that pink card stock using my Big Shot and my adapter plate.  The adapter plate is really worth buying..  It makes cutting these intricate dies so much easier.

 Finally I assembled my card and finished it with some iridescent sequins. Next I stamped my sentiment and fussy cut it out and adhered it to my card and the card is done.

You Make my Heart Sing!

Hi everyone, Deanna here with another inspirational post for the CardzTV Gallery.  Here is what I have for you.

My card is a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" pink card base.  The card was designed in Scan n Cut Canvas and cut with my Brother Scan n Cut.  The sentiment is from the Hugs and Kisses CardzTV Stamp Set.

To make the card I started with a Rectangle from the basic shapes and sized it to 5 1/2" X 8 1/2".  I then shortened the card base by about 1/2".  Next I went to the borders and found this heart border that I welded to one of the 5 1/2" sides.  Next I went back to the basic shapes and found the heart shape and the scalloped heart shape.  The scalloped heart shape was sized to 1 3/4" and I duplicated it twice to give me 3 hearts, which I cut out of a darker pink shade of paper.  The plain heart was sized at 1 1/2" and was duplicated twice.  It was cut out of patterned paper and then adhered to the center of the scallop heart.  I added a  piece of patterned paper across the card.  The patterned paper was cut to 3" X 5 1/2". The hearts were adhered to the center of the patterned paper.  I then embossed my sentiment with white detailed embossing powder and the card was finished.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to come back tomorrow and everyday for a new post.

Love

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

To make the shaped circle card I started with a 4" X 4" stitched circle die from Memory Box

To make the shaped circle card I started with a piece of card stock cut at 5" X 10" and folded it in half.  I placed my die on the card stock with one side of the die on the side of the folded card stock.  See the picture above.  By doing this the die won't cut the card stock where it is hanging over the fold.

Once die cut you will have a shaped circle card ready to decorate.


If you want to you could cut a 4" X 4" red circle and adhere it to the card front to cover the folded area.  I chose not to do that.  I did cut a 3.3" X 3.3" out of white card stock.

Next I took the Heart Party Craft Circle die from Memory Box.  I cut the die out of some red glitter card stock and attached it to the center of my white circle.  Next I used the Tutti Designs Love Die and using the bigger of the two dies cut a red and black Love.  I offset them slightly and adhered them together and then to my card front.  Once done you end up with this card. Be sure to use your metal adapter plate to help insure a great cut with this fine detail die.
