happy Birthday wishes

Hello, my crafty friends! Happy Friday – it’s Saturday the 9th already in Brisbane and this month’s Anything Goes with Dies Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you today!

I used the Crafter’s Companion Die’sire ‘Ruth’ Create-A-Card die set along with a Sizzix Dotted Ovals die for my project this month. I looked at my dwindling stash of birthday cards and decided that a pretty birthday card was in order. I cut the card base from Whisper White cardstock and the layer from Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

I have a huge stash of digital images I’ve never used and have vowed to use some of them in this new year. I chose the purple version of Fred She Said’s Lenten Roses for the focal image and cut it with the dotted ovals die. I added some Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear Sparkle overlay marker to the leaves of the flowers for a little shimmer and they look gorgeous! I’m so smitten!

For the inside, I cut a Rich Razzleberry layer and then a white layer, and stamped a simple sentiment.

Have a Purrrfect day

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! It’s already Wednesday in Brisbane and the January Anything Goes With Dies Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers! Several weeks ago I was invited to join the HLS Die Team and of course I said yes… I have a ton of dies that have gotten pretty lonely not being used, lol! So needless to say, I’m absolutely thrilled to share my first HLS DT inspiration project with you today!

I’ve decided to create a set of ‘awesome’ cat cards (as you’ll see by the inside sentiment) and this card is the first in the series. It features some adorable cat die cuts created with a new set of dies as well as a stitched border on some pretty patterned paper. So stay tuned for a few more!

I cut a strip of some awesome cheetah print paper which I adhered to the bottom front of the card base, rounded the corners and ran it through my Big Shot with a plain stitched border die across the top edge of the patterned paper. I created some cat die cuts and affixed three of them to the front, and then stamped a sentiment.

I decorated the inside with a coordinating piece of patterned paper, stamped the ‘awesome’ sentiment and affixed another cat die cut.
