Some more inspired by projects

Hi Lovelies,

I'm back again to let you all know about this challenge & to share some more inspiration with you.

Now you are probably wondering what a Mug Rug has to do with Die Cut Divas.  Believe it or not, but I was inspired to make a Mug Rug for my dd's teacher.  I used a Scalloped Nestibility to cut out the tree foliage.  Firstly I ironed some fusible webbing to the backside of the material before running it through my Cuttlebug.  The fusible webbing gives the material some stiffness which helps with the cutting.  I used my sewing machine to zig zag around all the appliqué pieces.

Here I have made a tag explaining what a Mug Rug is.  I used the same X-cut Ornate frame die in two different sizes to make this.  I turned the bottom card 90 degrees so it was on point.  I printed the tag onto lightweight card before running it through my Cuttlebug.  I also punched out a small circle & glued it down before punching a smaller hole out so the ribbon could be threaded through.

How cool is that?  I hope that I have inspired you to see what you can do using this picture.

Thanks for stopping by
Arlene, Dawn, Hannah & Paula.

Inspired by card

Hi there,

Today I thought I would do a quick share.  A card that was inspired by the latest Challenge at DCD which you can see here.
I used some of the colours & flowers from my mug & then added to it.  I used the Birds & swirls embossing folder from Cuttlebug on the plain c/s.  As some of the vines also reminded me of the swirls on the mug.  Then because it has birds on it, I added some extra birds & a large flower.

Thanks for stopping by & please feel free to join in on the fun

November/December challenge over at our Flickr group

Long time~ no post... apologies all... but the team of us... have all been very busy.

Paula has challenged us to a photo inspiration for the next two months...

Nov_Dec 2012 DCD Challenge
Because we are holding this challenge over two months like we did last year there are a few changes.

So lets get the rules out of way:

1. We are doubling the amount of cards you can enter for the challenge. So you can enter 8 cards over the two months.
2. If a moderator is not hosting a challenge for the month, the moderator can enter the challenge.

The theme of this challenge is - to use this photo as your inspiration.

You can make Cards, ATC's, Gifts, LO's - you are only limited by your imagination :D.

I am hoping to do a couple of random draws thorough out if time permits (I've been busy with kidlets).


Thanks Paula for such a fun idea 
Looking forward to seeing your creations over at Die Cut Diva's Flickr group.

Happy crafting

Dawn, Arlene, Hannah & Paula
