Just Believe

It is hard to imagine that Thanksgiving is gone and Black Friday is here.  In honor of Black Friday here is what I made for you a little tote bag.  This little bag would be perfect to give a gift in, or to fill  full of candy, nuts or other goodies.

The little tote bag is from the Silhouette Store.  I chose to do my tote in red and white in honor of the upcoming holidays but you can do yours in any color combination you like.  The tote is sized for 12" X 12" paper but the image comes grouped together so you can size it down to fit 8 1/2" X 11" card stock as well.  I cut out a tag and stamped with Just Believe from the Very Merry stamp set.  Hope you enjoyed this little project.  I would love to see what you make from the file.

Winter Cheer

Hi everyone, Deanna here with another inspirational CardzTV Gallery post.  Here is what I have for you today.
It is hard to believe but Thanksgiving is just two weeks away and it is time to start working on the holiday cards if you haven't yet.  This card is a quick and easy card and is easy to duplicate.  This card is from the Anna Griffin Christmas Kitsch Cricut Cartridge and was cut with my Cricut Explore.  I cut the card with the image at 5 1/2" high.  This made the card a perfect A2 card.  To make the card I cut the card base and the layers for the snowman.  I layered the snowman together and adhered it to it's layer on the card.  That is all there is too it.  Quick and simple, but adorable.  I then stamped my sentiment from the Winter Cheer stamp set with some Versamark ink and added some white fine detail embossing powder which I heated up with my heat gun and the card was finished.

Let's Say it With Gift Tags

Hello everyone, Deanna here with another inspirational post for Dies R Us.  Today I have for you some quick and easy gift tags.



To make the tags I started with the Lawn Fawn Tiny Tags Dies and die cut one of each of the 4 different tags.  Next I stamped the tags with greetings from the Lawn Fawn Tiny Tags Sayings Stamp set.  Next I took the Poppy Stamps Pinpoint Main Street Tags and die cut 2 of them using the 3rd from the smallest tag.  Again I stamped them with the Lawn Fawn Tiny Tags Sayings Stamp.  I then used my Crop-a-dile and punched a small hole in the top of each tag.  To finish the tags off I added some twine from Doodle-Bug.


Making tags is a great way to use up scraps of paper.  Tags can be as simple or complex as you like to make them and look great on your packages.

Joy

Hey everyone, Deanna here with another inspirational post for Dies R Us.  Today I have a Christmas card for you.  Yes, Christmas will be here before you know it.  Here is what I made to inspire you.

For my card I started with a white card stock base cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card.  Next I added a red mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and finished with my patterned paper cut at 3 3/4" X 5".  My die cuts I used are from Memory Box.  I used the Snowflake Bird die to cut the outline of the bird and the snowflakes out of white card stock.  I used the Airin Bird die to cut the red bird.  I adhered the white outline to my red bird and then adhered everything to the card front.  To finish the card I added some clear rhinestones to the center of the flowers and stamped my sentiment with some Memento Tuxedo black ink.

Seasons Greetings


Hello everyone, Deanna here with a fun new project showing a new way to use your dies.  Here is what I made.


To get started in making this card you first need to pick out an intricate die.  You will also need your embossing powder, an embossing mat, your die cut machine and cutting mats along with some embossing ink.  I used Versamark ink. You will also need an anti-static tool to wipe down your area where you will be embossing so your paper doesn't end up with a lot of extra embossing powder on your paper.  (TIP: If you don't have an anti-static tool a dryer sheet will work as well). For my project I chose to use the Westchester Ornament Die.









Using your embossing ink, carefully ink the raised edges of your die.  You will then set up your die cut machine for embossing a die.  My set up for my big shot was my multi-tab plate, set with tab 1 up, my base embossing plate, my die on my paper cutting side up, the green (or tan) embossing mat and then my cutting plate  I ran it through my big shot.  After taking the die out of the machine and carefully lifting off the die, I sprinkled the embossed design with some silver embossing powder.


Here is what that will look like before it is heated with your heat tool.  Before heating the embossing powder preheat your heat tool.  By preheating your heat tool it will just melt the embossing powder quicker reducing the chances of warping your paper.  You can also heat your paper from the back side to help with warping.  Once the embossing powder is melted you are ready to finish your project.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hey everyone, Deanna here with another inspirational post for the CardzTV Gallery blog.  Today I have for you a cute little Thanksgiving card.  Here is what I made.

I started with a piece of Kraft card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  I added a brownish orange mat cut to 4" X 5 1/4" and then the patterned paper mat cut at 3 3/4" X 5".  Next I added the blue acorn mat cut a 1 1/2" X 5".

I decided to cut this cute pilgrim squirrel from the Create A Critter 2 Cartridge.  He is cut at 3 3/4".  I cut all the layers and adhered him together with some liquid glue.  I used a light pink marker to give him some rosy pink cheeks and a white gel pen to add the little white dots to the pink area.

My sentiment is from the Big Holiday Wishes stamp set.

Aged to Perfection

Hey everyone, Deanna here with your daily inspirational post.  Here is what I made for you today.

I saw this cute image of Elmo popping out of a box and thought what a perfect birthday card it would make for my friend who is having a birthday soon.

I started with a white card stock base cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  I added a blue mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4".  Next I added the patterned paper mat cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8".  Elmo is a print and cut image from the Sesame Street Elmo Play Day cartridge.  I print and cut the image at 4".  Elmo is added to my card front with foam tape.  I adhered the streamers straight to the card using my two way glue pen.  I dded some sparkle to the streamers and yellow tissue paper in the box using my Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen

Finally, I stamped my sentiment from the CardzTV Good Times Stamp Set.  Thanks for stopping by today.
