Die Cuttin' Divas 3D Challenge


Tuesday has rolled around again and we have a new challenge for you over at Die Cuttin' Divas.

We want you to stretch your creativity past one dimension.

Our challenge this week over at  Die Cuttin' Divas  is 3D




.






I am using a cutting file from The Cutting Cafe who is our sponsor this week.









I had braces when I was young and remember anxiously awaiting the day I would get them removed.

I couldn't wait to have my pearly white smile back again.

I decided to take this cute calendar file and make a countdown calendar for the day you get your braces off :)






The smile with braces and the teeth are cutting files from Silhouette Studio and the sentiment is from SVG Cutting Files.





Supplies used: card stock - 2 shades of blue, red, black, white, silver; patterned papers - Lawn Fawn; cutting files - The Cutting Cafe, SVG Cutting Files and Silhouette Studio; Cuttin' Up Cricut cartridge.



Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.


Hope to see you playing along with us!!!!

Die Cuttin' Divas Ants or Picnic Challenge


Summer has us doing so many activities outside and one of my favorite activities is to pack a picnic and eat at a park.

Of course you do have to put up with a few pesky bugs and flying insects.

The bug that always seems to go hand in hand with your picnic is the little ant.

Our challenge this week over at  Die Cuttin' Divas  is Ants or Picnic




.






I found this darling card, that combines the two, over at SVG Cutting Files. It is called Ant Picnic Basket Card and you can purchase it here.









I think this ant, with his big eyes, is just to cute! 

I was able to use scraps from my stash for all the patterned paper cuts. 









Supplies used: card stock - black, grey, white, green, brown; patterned papers were all scraps from my stash; stamps by Stampendous; ink - Archival Black, twine by May Arts



Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.

Die Cuttin' Divas Father's Day Challenge


Well, June just seems to be flying by! We are already in the middle of the month, I feel like I need to catch my breath.

This weekend we are honoring our Fathers and thanking them for everything they do for their families. It's time to give Dad a big pat on the back and a day that revolves around him.

We have a new challenge for you to try over at  Die Cuttin' Divas .

This week it is Father's Day/Masculine.

I decided to go a little retro with my card. I took a file called RETRO CASSETTE TAPE
by Sarah Hurley
Design ID #28563 and I used the weld feature in the design program to make this file into a card by welding a rectangle for the back flap.









the sentiment was created using two stamps sets by Paper Smooches - Daddy Yo and Sentiment Sampler.









Supplies used: card stock -black, white, 2 shades of grey, orange; stamps - Daddy Yo and Sentiment Sampler by Paper Smooches; ink - Jet Black Archival; Silhouette Studio cut file




Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.
