Technology, isn't it great? You can schedule your post ahead of time and enjoy your vacation.

We have a fun challenge for you this week.

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

I chose to create a cute Valentine 3D box card, which folds flat to mail.

You can purchase it here.



It was super easy to assemble and I think it is so darling!




Supplies used: card stock - white, 2 shades of red, pink; patterned paper by Recollections; cut file from Silhouette Design Store; twine by May Arts, sticker from my stash.

5 Cards from 1 Kit



If you are looking for a fabulous monthly card kit, I highly recommend Spellbinders!

Their card kit has everything, and I mean everything, you need to make 10 or more cards.

It comes with card stock, a 6X6 pad of pattern papers, card blanks with envelopes, dies, stamps, stickers, etc.

Just check out what came in this months kit:




Contents-Square




I thought I would share 5 of the many cards I created with this kit.


For the first card everything I used was in the kit other than a die from my stash to cut out the large heart and some black stickles.




For the second card, the only thing I added, not from the kit, was some blue twine.




The third card had an addition of some pink glitter paper for a little sparkle.



The fourth card my addition was a heart shaped doily.


The last card my addition was some border dies from my stash.


All in all, I was able to make some great cards with just a few added items from my supplies.

Thanks for stopping by!

Die Cuttin' Divas Glitter or Foil Challenge

Well, the holidays have come and gone, now its back to "normal" life.

It is always bittersweet in so many ways. While I'm glad all the work and rushing around is over, I miss the decorations, the Christmas music and pretty much all of the festivities. Also, my house looks so darn empty!

At Die Cuttin' Divas we are going to keep a little of the sparkle going with this weeks challenge.

Our challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas this week is glitter or foil.

.



I still have all my Christmas papers and embellishments out in my craft room, so I figured I might as well get a head start on next years Christmas cards.

I mean glitter paper is just perfect for holiday cards, right?



I die cut the trees out of both patterned and glitter paper, using a Silhouette Studio cut file.

A white embossed background, some die cut stars, a cute sentiment with gold foil letters, and a few rhinestones round out my card. 




Supplies used: card stock - white, red, silver glitter; patterned papers and sentiment die cut from "Deer" Santa by Spellbinders, cut file from Silhouette Studio; rhinestones from my stash.

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 Sketch Challenge

Happy New Year!

2019!!! Hard to believe its been almost 20 years since Y2K, Haha.

Do you have any New Years resolutions? It seems I always make a few, but honestly I've never fulfilled one for a whole year. Well, try, try again as they say.

I have several this year - to drink more water, to walk more, and in general, get more healthy.

I also have a few crafty ones, like to make Christmas cards and projects every month so I have more done before December arrives next, year :).

Anyway, it's Tuesday so lets move on to our new challenge for this week.

Our challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas this week is a sketch challenge.

.



I used supplies from my December Spellbinders card kit to make my card.

I have to admit that I "cased" a card I saw on Pinterest by Zsoka Marko. It was just so pretty!


I used a scalloped oval die by Papertrey Ink. Papers, dies, twine, stickers all from Spellbinders.





Supplies used: card stock - white, brown, and pink; patterned papers, dies, twine, sentiment sticker all from Spellbinders; scalloped oval die from Papertrey Ink; rhinestones from my stash.
