White on White Christmas

  Hi there.  It's my turn to share at Die Cut Divas.  Our challenge this month is All Kinds of Holdiays... and our sponsor is Cheapo Dies 


Today I am sharing a White on White Christmas card.  


I took the candles die and cut it from White card.  I used Gina K Master layouts 2 to cut the panel I added the candles too.  I have added a soft amount of green pencil onto the holly leaves (hard to see on the photo)  The sentiment is from Sunny Studios.  A few white gems finished off the card.  

Although my dies are not from Cheapo Dies, but they have a lot of wonderful dies. 

Do come and join us

Tomorrow is the Debut of our new Die Cut Divas' DT Linda Wetterlin

 I met Linda a long time ago on the Hero Arts Flickr group where Linda was part of the Hero Hostesses (she served 3 months in 2011).  It was an exciting time for Hero Arts and all the members.  

Linda Wetterlin spends her time crafting and working on chorus music.  Can you believe she sings baritone in a women's barbershop chorus?  Linda is a happy person to be around and has great energy.  


We're happy to have Linda join us with her very own post tomorrow.  
Be sure to welcome Linda to the group.

Christmas is a Coming ....

Hi! Our challenge this month is "holidays" and we're happy to have Cheapo Dies as our sponsor. They are generously offering a $15 gift certificate to this month's winner.


Cheapo Dies sells dies from major manufacturers, such as Altenew, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Sizzix, Memory Box, Hero Arts, Poppy Stamps, Lawn Fawn, to just name a few. 


We're having a heat wave here, complete with high temperatures. What better way to "cool down" than to think about Christmas! Here's my card


I created a watercolor panel which I die cut with Elizabeth Craft Design's Ornament Set #2 for the ornament background. I die cut the outline from silver cardstock. When I created this card a few days ago, this die set was available at Cheapo Dies. I see that it's now sold out. However, Cheapo Dies have many other ornament dies to choose from, as well as other dies, you didn't know you needed - LOL!

For a detailed description of how I created this card, please visit me at foleysfriend blog.

We'd love to have you join our "holiday" challenge this month.

Thanks for stopping by

Tiled Valentine

Hello everyone,


Cindy here to share another inspiration for this month's challenge:  Holidays!


Cheapo Dies is our sponsor this month.  They have increased their inventory with the addition of well  known die brands like Altenew, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Memory Box, Sizzix, Hero Arts, PoppyStamps, Lawn Fawn and a whole lot more.  Be sure to check Cheapo Dies out here.

Cheapo Dies offers a $15 gift certificate as the prize for our challenge winner.

Now about my card.  A few days ago I used Altenew Graden Trellis Cover Die (available at Cheapo Dies) for my project, and I am left with lots of the negative pieces.  Today I made use of them to create a Valentine card.


I used the same cover die along with a silicone mat to sandwich the card front and pass thru the die cut machine to created the embossed pattern/grid.  Then I glue the colored left over pieces on top and coated with Sprinkled Sugar for a bit of shine.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment in black.


For further details, hop over to my blog:  Escape To Stamping.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sunshine Daisies

Welcome back.  Dawn here today to share my card for our August Challenge

Rachel Vass Designs is our terrific sponsor for August.  

The theme for August is all about the FLOWERS.

Rachel Vass Designs specialized in beautiful floral hand drawn digital stamps.




The challenge winner will be able to pick 
three digi stamps from her store.

I am using a super summery image today called "Sunshine Daisies"   

I printed my image onto some white card and used Copic Markers, Altenew Alcohol markers and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers  to colour it in.  I went around the outside edges with a very light blue Copic.  It's hard to see in the photo but it is there!

Do come and join us with your Flower project.
