Slimline Paper Pieced Floral with Rachel Vass DesignsI

 Hi there.   At Die Cut Divas this month our sponsor is Rachel Vass Designs and our theme is Flowers.   



I tried something a little different with my Rachel Vass florals by paper piecing the florals.


I printed the image -Floral Border Slimline - three times... once on white card stock, one on cream colour paper and once on purple paper.   I cut the white panel with Pink Fresh Studios Essential Mini Slimline dies.  The purple layer was cut with another of the dies from that set.  I used some pencils to add some colour to coloured flowers.  I then fussy cut them and added to the base.   Just prior to Christmas I purchased a Go Press and Foil machine and ordered some Spellbinders foil dies.  This one I foiled with silver foil.  Using this machine is just another way to use your die cut machine... I use a Cuttlebug and the foiling machine goes through perfectly.  

Do come and join us with your Flowers this month.

Floral Love

Hey Diva friends - Linda here with a Love card (could be Valentine or other) using the Floral Heart digi file by our wonderful sponsor Rachel Vass! I just love her gorgeous floral images - perfect for our January theme FLOWERS.


Our January random winner will receive 3 of Rachel's digi designs.

Digi - Rachel Vass Floral Heart
 
I sized the heart wreath to fit an A2 card. Printed and colored it with Copics, then fussy cut. You can see more details plus bonus cards at my blog (Scrappin', Stampin', & Singin') HERE.

A Stocking Shaped Card


Hey crafty friends - Linda here to share a fun stocking card as inspiration for our Diva challenge this month. Our theme is to create a Winter/Christmas project with the option of making a shaped card. Frantic Stamper is sponsoring this challenge and generously donated a lovely Christmas die bundle (see the challenge post for full details). Here's my shaped card:


Dies - Sunny Studio Santa's Stocking (Available at Frantic Stamper here).
 Lacy Snowflakes (at FS here) &
Spellbinder's Snowflake Splendor (at FS here)

I couldn't resist this darling stocking die set! I formed an A2 stocking shaped card by not cutting through the top folded edge of the cardstock. Then I added the patterned layers - such fun!!

Frantic Stamper carries such a wonderful selection of paper craft brands, plus I love FS products! If interested, please find more details and a bonus card using a FS cover plate die on my blog Scrappin', Stampin', & Singin'.

It's Raining Christmas Cards Today

  

Frantic Stamper is Die Cut Divas' Sponsor for the December Challenge of Winter/Christmas project with an optional twist to make a shaped Winter/Christmas Card.

The prize is a Christmas Die Bundle!  Check out our Challenge Post to see the bundle here.

You can find so many "must haves" at Frantic Stamper and I was looking for something that had a WOW factor and I think I found a couple of "must haves" and I know I found many wonderful "must haves".

These houses are going to family.  Since I cut everything from glitter cardstock, which is heavier than normal cardstock, so I was cutting for what I thought was forever, but was not.  For the results, I would gladly do this again with glitter cardstock.  The glitter is incredible and even if I say so myself, just beautiful.  Since my base cardstock was glossy, I used a stopper for each card, e.g. "ho-HO-ho!" on the blue cards.

Supplies:
Poppy Stamps Winter House Pop-up Easel Set at Frantic Stampers
IO dies - Birch Trees (small die-cut birds on houses)
Elizabeth Craft Designs various sentiments stamp sets
Glitter paper in stash
Vagabond die-cut machine
