Simply Create Too – Challenge 137 – Use Diecuts

1 Simply Create 2 DT

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.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown Technique Challenge – March 2018 – Embossing

For the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Technique Challenge, the design team challenges you to make a Christmas card using a wet or dry embossing technique. For my card, I used the dry technique. I embossing a clear sheet of acetate with a snowflake embossing folder by Tim Holtz. I used a snowflake patterned paper behind the acetate and a fun “fat” snowman digi stamp from Bugaboo Stamps on top. The coloured my little snowman with Copic Markers. The diecut sentiment, Let it Snow, also has a little embossed element to it. For the final touch, I added three snowflake buttons from my stash.
I look forward to seeing your techniques!

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge – 17 March 2018 – No patterned paper

CHNC blog button DT

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Design Team’s challenge this week is to make a card using no patterned paper. I decided to create my own background door by using various rectangle cuts of card stock. Once the door was finished, I added a Christmas Wreath die by Tim Holtz and a brad for the doorknob. I even created a tag on the wreath using the vintage Santa stamp on Shrinky Dinky plastic. The inside of my card reads, “Merry Christmas from Our Home to Yours.”
