My Creative Time: Too Die For Tuesday

Hi, today is Too Die For Tuesday over on the My Creative Time Blog. We are showing new ways you can use your dies to get more use out of them. I used a dry embossing technique with the Frame Die.  I love how it turned out!! 



A thick white card stock mat was cut out using a paper trimmer, larger than the Frame Die.  The following sandwich was used in the Cuttlebug:

 B Plate
Rubber Mat
Three Paper Shims
Thick White Card Stock Mat
Frame Die
B Plate

 It was run through the Cuttlebug a few times to get a great impression. 

The embossed white card stock mat was layered onto the a red card stock mat. The two mats were then backed with a card base. 

The little flowers/stems were stamped and cut out with the coordinating dies from the A Beautiful Day Stamp Set. The petals were accented with Copic markers and the flower centers were covered with Glossy Accents. 

The "hello" sentiment was stamped and cut out with the coordinating die from the Fun Notes stamp set. The stamped die cut was colored in with a yellow Copic marker. Then two more hello die cuts were cut out to layer on the back of the original. 

The little butterfly was stamped and cut out with a coordinating die also from A Beautiful Day Stamp Set.  The butterfly was colored in with Copic markers. The little trail was stamped using one of the stamps from the Thanks For The Lift Stamp Set

The card was embellished with a little twine bow and some clear sequins.

The worm's glasses were topped with Glossy Accents and the books were accented with a white gel pen. The little star was stamped and cut out with a coordinating die from the Shine Like The Stars Stamp Set.  It too was colored in with a Copic marker.

My Creative Time: Whatever Wednesday

Hi, today is Whatever Wednesday over on the My Creative Time Blog. I created a fun egg shaped Easter card to share today. 


The white scallop egg card base, the purple scallop egg, and the regular egg die cuts were cut out using the Scallop Egg Dies.  It is hard to see on the picture but the sky on the egg die cut was created using one of the More Stitched Edges dies along with baby blue ink. The grass was cut out of a green card stock egg using one of the Pretty Edge Dies.  The sentiment from the Favorite Bunny Stamp Set was stamped onto the grass using embossing ink and white embossing powder. The little bunny with the egg was stamped and cut out with coordinating dies from the Ears To You Stamp Set.  The bunny was colored in with Copic Markers and the little arm was partially cut out by hand for the bunny to hold the little egg. The pretty flowers and leaves were cut out using dies from the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves set. Glossy Accents was added to each of the flower centers. The sky was embellished with little butterflies that were cut out using dies form the Mini Butterfly set. A little clear sequin was added to each one.
