Good morning all,
Since this past week has been filled with “baby” news, I haven’t done much. I do have some cards to share with you, though. This week I’m featuring die cuts. I don’t have lots of dies but do use the ones I have often. I’m always trying to make an old die look new again.
Love this little tree landscape card and it’s very simple to make. I cut some greens to create the grassy hills. Die cut the clouds and tree trunks and punched a round scallop for the tree. A little bow and punched leaves and you’re done!
My friend from England, Pat, sent me “The Tattered Lace”, Issue 02 magazine which came with a free die called Double Delights. With the help of the magazine articles, I created several cards. This card uses 2 die cuts placed within a frame and a few punched flowers in the corner.
This delicate card was made using my Cricut and the Paper Lace cartridge. It took a bit of time to figure out how to connect the front to back. I used some thin 2 sided tape and a thin piece of cardstock for the spine and it worked out great. I added a circle base, some leaves, butterfly, all die cut and added a few small punched flowers as accents. Some gold sticky gems finished it off.
Lastly, this die cut was another gift from my friend Pat. A flower die by Tonic Studios. The die has pre-printed tags with either gold or silver. You place the die onto the pre-printed tag and cut away! This is what you end up with…a tag already embossed with (in this case) silver. How easy is this. I border punched the white and yellow, added some ribbon strips and a few sticky gems.
So that’s it for this week. I’ve started cutting fabric for another quilt and will have some pics soon. A housewarming gift for me son and his gal!
Have a great weekend.
