Tuesday has rolled around again and it is time for a new challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas! This week we have a photo for inspiration for you.









Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is The Paper Nest! You have a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate.



I think I must of been hungry when I chose my inspiration from the photo, because that yummy pumpkin pie caught my eye. 

I decided to make a pie box.

I actually used two Silhouette Studio cut files to make my box. I used file #50122 for my box and I enlarged a piece of the meringue in file #50127 for my dollop of whipped cream.







Supplies used: card stock - 2 shades of orange, tan, white Silhouette Studio cut files; ribbon and leaves - Michaels; acorn.

Die Cuttin' Divas Lions, Tigers and Bears Oh My! (Wizard of Oz Celebration) Challenge


OK, when I was young we used to watch The Wizard Of Oz every year when it aired on TV. It was an annual thing, like watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade, or Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. After watching it on TV my 2 brothers, my sister and I would re-enact the movie. We'd throw together costumes - a few straws from Mom's broom and my little brother was the Scarecrow, an apron and braids, and I was Dorothy, you get the drift. What I am ashamed to admit is that I would make my baby sister get on all fours, follow me around, and be Toto. It's still a big joke between my sister and I to this day.

Well this week our challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas is Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My! (Wizard of Oz Celebration)






Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is Digital Delights!


I decided to make Dorothy's ruby slippers the focus of my card. I used 2 different Silhouette Studio cut files to create her shoes. Design #1710 for the shoes and #16776 for the bows.

For the sentiment I used part of design #42721 and a stamp by Graphic 45.





Supplies used: card stock - white, red glitter; patterned paper by Making Memories, stamps - Graphic 45; Silhouette Studio cut files; border punch - Martha Stewart.


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!!!!
