Die Cuts

Hi, there! I’m here today with a couple of cards for this weeks Papertrey Ink Make It Monday technique: White on white die cuts. 🙂

Here is my first card:

I was inspired by those hundreds of posters like this on Pinterest. LOL! It was fun to make, though that Q is going to give me nightmares because he just DID NOT want to be straight! LOL.

Here is another card, also using letters…

This one was really fun picking the colors and deciding on the placement of the white letters around the sentiment. I popped the word “Smile” up just a bit by putting one layer of white letters underneath the color ones. And then just to add a little bit more (bc obviously I don’t when to stop, LOL) I added some vellum butterflies with a pop of rhinestone in the middles. 🙂

Hope you like them!

Hello there. I’ve been inspired by Virginia’s View Challenge. This month the challenge is Dimension. I’ve been visiting blogs and looking at Pinterest a lot lately (well ALL THE TIME really LOL.) And I think this card is a mash up in my head of a bunch of different cards I’ve seen lately. 😉

So here it is,

I used foam tape and foam squares to get two different heights for the dahlias. And I just pushed up the sentiment banner while adhering it down so it would have that lovely bump in the middle like it was being blown by the wind. Instead of using patterned paper for the background, I used die cuts to give it that extra dimension. 😉

Hope you like it! I had a lot of fun making it!

Hello. I’m here today with a card for the October Virginia’s View Challenge: Clean & Simple. 🙂 I’ve had Christmas cards on the brain lately, since I’m done making all my Halloween invites.

Here is my card:

I went with white on white 🙂 When I adhered the snowflake I used my Xyron sticker maker, but the excess adhesive that I can usually just rub off, decided to stick and worse attract dust and just basically turn black in certain spots. I didn’t want to scrap the whole card so I took one of my Martha Stewart glue pens and added some glue to cover up the spots, plus add some little dots here and there and then covered that in glitter. I really like how it turned out. Happy accidents 🙂

Hope you like it!
