Merry Christmas

Hi everyone, Deanna here back with another Christmas in July project for your inspiration from Dies R Us. Here is what I have for  you today.


I started with a white card base cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 12" card base.  I added a red mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4".  Next I added a green patterned paper mat cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8".

My Poinsettia Die is from the Poppystamps Holiday Poinsettia die.   After die cutting my Poinsettia layers, I used an embossing mat to emboss each flower layer.  That is what gives you the detail in the flower petals.  The paper I used had a bit of shimmer to it.

Before adhering the individual flower layers together, I used a pencil to slightly curl the leaves under to give the flower a  more realistic look.  I adhered the layers together using some liquid adhesive and then added the yellow flower center.  Once the flower was assembled and dried I added it to my card.

For my sentiment, I used the Poppystamps Old Fashioned Christmas die.  This die is currently out of stock but there are several other Merry Christmas dies found here, here, and here.  There are some wonderful holiday days in the newest release of Poppystamps and Memory Box dies. Be sure to check them out.  If you haven't already done so be sure to sign up for the newsletter to be notified on new releases as well as other sales and special order dies.

Believe in Yourself

Hey everyone, Deanna here with a new project for you from Dies R Us.  Here is what I made.

I love the sentiment that comes with this little stamp and die set.  The stamps and the die are both from Lawn Fawn.  I stamped the little deer onto some watercolor card stock and colored him with my Spectrum Noir Aqua pencils and blended him with a water brush.  After I had him colored I die cut him out using my Big Shot Machine.

My card base is white card stock and and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  I cut some yellow card stock at 4" X 5 1/4" for my next mat.  The patterned paper is cut at 3 3/4" X 5".  I then cut another piece of yellow card stock at 1 1/2" X 3 3/4" and ran that through my big shot to emboss it.  I then adhered it to my card front.  I used this to help ground the little deer so he didn't look like he was floating in plaid land.  Finally I stamped my sentiment with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Make Everyday a Sundae

I have a new card for you today.  I plan to enter this in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog.  Here is what I made.

For my card, I started with cream colored card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  I added a bright pink mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and then added the blue patterned paper mat cut at 3 3/4" X 5".

My sundae was cut at 3 1/2".  I added glossy accents to the cherry and the sprinkles.  I also added some pink and white striped twine and tied a bow.  I stamped my sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Thanks for visiting.

Christmas in July


Hi everyone, Deanna here with another project for Dies R Us.  I don't know about you but I have been getting emails about Christmas in July specials the minuet it hit July 1st.  So, I thought I would do a Christmas in July project.  Here is what I have for you today.


I started with a light grey colored card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  I then cut a mat out of some glittered card stock from my stash. The mat was cut at 4" X 5 1/4".  Next I cut the patterned glitter card stock at 3 3/4" X 5".

For my ornament I used the Stitched Graham Die for the top layer and the Drop Ornaments Layers for the back layer of the ornament. For the diamond shape mat that my ornament is on I used the Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Squares dies.  To make the ornaments, I die cut the images out of some toner paper that came with my Minc.  For the back layer I applied some green foil and ran the image through my Minc to set the foil.  For the top layer, I applied some gold foil and ran that through my Minc to adhere my foil.  I just love the shine the foil adds to the images.

My sentiment is stamped with some Memento Cottage Ivy ink on some Vellum.  I let the ink dry for a short while then adhered the Vellum to my card by placing small dots of adhesive behind the letters in my sentiment.  There you have it. My completed card.

Just in case you didn't know, or haven't subscribed to the newsletter yet (which you really should do) Dies R Us is having a Pre-Order for the new Holiday release of the Memory Box and Poppystamp Dies.  Dies are expected to arrive  July 7th so hurry over and get your order in so you can be one of the first ones to get these new awesome dies.

Happy Father's Day

Hey everyone, Deanna here with a new project for you from Dies R Us.

I made this card using the new Lawn Fawn Dad and Me stamp and die sets and the Stitched Mountain Borders Die set.  The Dad and Me stamp and die set is a great set to add to your supplies.  It can be used for many different masculine cards besides Father's Day.

To make my card, I started with a piece of watercolor card stock that I cut with the largest Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Die.  I used Tumbled Glass distress ink to create my sky and Mowed Lawn distress ink to create my grass.

Next I die cut my Stitched Mountain Borders Die set to create the mountains. I stamped the river from the Dad and Me stamp set along with the rocks. I also stamped the big bear and two of the little bears and colored them with my Zig Clean Clear Brush markers.  I added the glasses to the big bear.  Once I had all the coloring and die cutting done I assembled my card.  I made this card for my two grandson's to give to my husband for Father's Day.

Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

Hey everyone. It is time for Challenge #11 over at 2 Creative Chicks.  Here is what I have for you today.



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 black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" then added my blue patterned paper which is cut at 3 3/4" X 5".

I then stamped a flower from the Hot of the Press Flower Frenzy stamp and die set with some Versamark Ink.  I added some blue embossing powder and used my heat tool to melt the powder. Next I die cut the flower out, and added a small rhinestone to the center of the flower.

I used the Memory box Gross grain ribbon die to cut two "ribbons" out of white card stock.  I added them to my card and then attached the flower.

My sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with WOW! white embossing powder.

Now it is your turn, join us in this challenge and post your creation.

Let's Go Fly a Kite

Hi everyone, Deanna here with another fun card to get your creativity going.  Here is what I have for you today.



My project was created using the new Lawn Fawn Yay, Kites! stamp and die sets from Dies R Us.

My card base is white card stock that I cut and folded to make a 5" X 7" card base.  Next I cut some blue card stock for my sky.  The blue card stock was cut at 3 1/2" X 5".  For my lawn and grass I cut two pieces of green card stock at 3" X 5". I ran these two pieces through my Big Shot machine and cut them using the Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Border Dies.  Next I took another piece of the green card stock that was about 1" X 5" and cut my grass using the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border Die.

Next I stamped, colored and die cut my images from Lawn Fawn Yay, Kites!.  I decided to use the Hello sentiment as a kite string held by the bunny.  Just an FYI, the Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words stamps and dies can also be used as kite strings or just as a sentiment.  To finish my card I added some different colored sequins to look like little flowers growing in the grass.
