This month the Simply Create Too Design Team Challenge is to make a Card using Diecuts. I love die cuts. I have invested a little fortune in dies and don’t use them nearly enough. I have made two different cards using dies and papers from my stash. The only ink I used was on the sentiments.
Card 1 – I just received a shipment of dies, stamps, and embossing folders from Darlene at Dutch Paper Crafts so I had to make a couple of cards for this month’s challenge. I used papers from my paper hard, my Tim Holtz Vagabond Die Machine. The sentiment is from SSS. The adorable Zebra is by Marianne Designs - COL1447 Zebra/Donkey Die Set. The Embossing folder/die is from DF3444 Anja’s Flower Border Embossing Folder with matching Dies (I used the die upside down on the embossed background and cut it down to fit an A2 card).
Card 2 – This card uses die from Memory Box – UNDERWATER COLLAGE Craft Die 99742 and SEAWEED COLLAGE Craft Die 99727, plus Marianne Designs – Elines Tropical fish seahorse col1431. The sentiment is by SSS. Note: I popped everything up using dimensional foam tape to create a 3-D effect.
Our challenge runs through the month of April (4/6 to 4/27). I look forward to seeing your creations.
For the CRAFT Challenge 261, we are looking for a Shaped Card. I used a SVG file from The Cutting Cafe and my Cricut Explore Air called Teacup Card Set. This set includes 2 different teapot designs, plus envelopes. If you don’t own a Silhouette, Cricut, Brother cutting machine, no worries because the Cutting Cafe also includes the template pattern that allows you to manual cut out the card. I also added a flower I created using one of my dies from Marianne Designs, The sentiment id from SSS.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge this week is to make a Santa card. I decided to use a couple of my die cuts from Marianne Design Collectibles – Eline’s Santa COL1391 and Eline’s Reindeer. I cut them out of foil and plain coloured paper fro my stash.

Hello Everyone, Myrna here! As a member of the Design Team for 52 CCT Challenge, we all get to select a month of Challenges. For our Theme Challenge, I selected Polar Bear(s). I love all kinds of bears from Teddy Bears to Polar Bears, thus my choice for this month’s theme. For my card I used dies. The bear die is from Marianne Design Cutting Dies & Clear Stamp – Eline’s Polar Bear COL1370. I created the card using various cardstock colours, stamp from Mama Elephant, and Stickles.
I look forward to seeing your Bear(s)
I entered my card into HLS February Anything Goes with Dies Challenge
This challenge will last for the whole month of September 2017 – anything goes as long as it’s Christmas – it doesn’t have to be a card, you can link any project as long as it’s Christmas!
Once again this year, all of these monthly challenges are being generously sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps – a winner will be randomly chosen using random.
Bugaboo Stamps are proud to sponsor this challenge – they are offering 4 digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.
For this month’s card, I have revealed exactly what Santa does while on his Vay-Kay! I love this series of Tropical Santa’s that Bugaboo Stamps Created. This one is called TropSantaSuntan. They have since retired the series and that is why you need to keep checking their website. As new stamps are created, they retire the old ones-heavy sigh.
I started by colouring him bright, festive colours with my Copics. Once done, I fussy cut him out and set him aside. Next I die cut a sun using the Sun and Moon Die-namics from MFT. The waves were created with a die from Marianne’s Designs called, “Eline’s Whale.” The final step was to assemble my card and stamp a sentiment from Penny Black’s Festive Snippets.
