Cute Cat for the Cheapo Dies Inspiration Blog


I'm very excited to be part of the Cheapo Dies Design Team and to share my first project with you!

For my card, I used the Cheapo Dies Exclusive Cat die.  Love the size of this sweet cat image.  I first die cut using a piece of scrap designer paper then die cut again using 3 colors of cardstock to have to have the negative pieces to inlay into the die cut image.

Here's a close up of the die cut using the negative pieces:

You can find this adorable die (and many more!) in the Cheapo Dies online store:

Dies R Us Inspiration


I'm sharing a black and white, with a splash of red card on the DRU Inspiration Blog today.

I first die cut all the elements and used a stylus to shape the die cut flowers

Then, layered the red frame onto the diamond panel before adhering to the cardbase

Once on the cardbase I arranged one of the layered blooms and the die cut word to complete the card

Here's a close up of the stitched bloom

Dies used from the DRU online store:

HMFMC #260 - Spring Colors


The House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #260 theme is always anything goes with the optional challenge of  Spring Colors.  I chose the Spring Colors theme.

For my card I used the House Mouse Spring Swing stamp.  The sentiment is from the Stampendous Spring Sentiments stamp set.  I colored the image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and an aqua brush.  The patterned papers are from my stash.  I created a double loop bow using Really Reasonable Ribbon to embellish my card.

We hope you'll share with us at the HMFMC #260 Challenge using any House Mouse, Happy Hoppers, or Gruffies stamps.

PIP Challenge #1807


This week's anything goes PIP Challenge is sponsored by Digital Delights.

For my card, I used Celebration Owl digi stamp.  I printed the image onto Bristol cardstock and watercolored using Distress Inks and an aqua brush.  I die cut a Spellbinders scallop circle to create the card base and die cut the image using a Spellbinders circle die.  Embellished with a double bow created using Really Reasonable Ribbon.

We hope you'll share your cards/projects with us this week at PIP Challenge #1807.

The Outlawz CAS Challenge - RAK


The CAS Challenge is to create a card as a random act of kindess (RAK) and then to send it!

For my card, I used stamp sets from Altenew.  The cardbase is cut from an A2 size PTI die.  I stamped the image and heat embossed then colored using zig clean color real brush pens and die cut it using a matching die from Altenew.

We hope you'll create a RAK card and then actually give it for no reason other than to be kind!  You can find the CAS Challenge HERE.
