Is it too soon for Halloween?

Not in MY book - I wish we celebrated Halloween all year round! And Cheapo Dies agrees, as they have a fabulous bunch of creepy goodies!

Here is the card I've created for the first half of the month - I'll see you around the 31st with another creation.  Pop over to my blog {Art Without Anxiety} to see how this card was made. Thanks Christi

Silhouettes for August

Cheapo Dies

Cheapo Dies is offering a $15 gift certificate,
 which goes a long way.

The challenge is to submit a project which uses silhouette(s). 
A silhouette is the image of a person, animal, object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single color, usually black, with its edges matching the outline of the subject


Arlene obviously liked the silhouette idea and went with it in total  abandon. Even though this is not a Cheapo die, they have some marvelous similar dies which Arlene points out at A Bit of This and That.



Michelle wanted to try impressing her die-


Dawn went a bit fishy -

Sweet Friend gift bag

Dawn T here to share another project for our Anything but a Card....

Today I have a gift bag.

I found this kraft gift bag when I was cleaning out the craft room the other week.  I'd forgotten I had them - not even sure where I got them!  I took some cute paper and die cut a tall scalloped rectangle with a Spellbinders die.   I had the friend die cut (a Winnie and Walter cut with my ScanNCut.) sitting on my desk.  I used a Copic marker to colour it up.  I also coloured the die cut circle.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.    I had fun making this one .

Anything But a Card could be a Bookmark!

Welcome back to Die Cut Diva's!  For the monthly challenge, Anything But a Card, I made a bookmark for The Man.  I struggle with masculine gifts, cards, well, anything, so this was fun to make!  Remember, you could win a voucher to Dies R Us if you win the challenge!
Here is the bookmark I made.  I think the black and white pallet makes the rose panel look a bit less feminine, don't you?
I'd love it if you popped by to my blog, Art Without Anxiety, to see what products I used and how I constructed the bookmark.

Have a wonderful day, my die cutting buddies!

You are Loved

Hello die loving friends!

For this challenge, Anything but a Card {sponsored by Dies R Us} I decided to make a banner for a friend that's been going through a rough time lately. I hope you like it!


I hope you've had time to join in the challenge this month; working out of the box is so much fun!
If you'd like to check out how I made the banner, and see what products I used, please stop by my blog, Art Without Anxiety.

Have a wonderful day!

Here is my project:

Front


Back

 This is how it looked like before-


I used Spellbinders Labels Nine to cover up the writing, and a poinsettia (Spellbinders Poinsettia, but these would work as well). Not a lot of work to make a gift box or peppermint holder!
