Let It Snow

Join the Die Cut Divas for the Winter challenge.  The prize is a $10 voucher to Dies R Us!

I've worked with some different dies (for me) and I have enjoyed putting them together to make a composite I do like.  I took the corner die-cut and laid it over the ornament and used it as a stencil, dabbing the distress paint onto the ornament.  I thought that would tie everything together.  Visit us at Die Cut Divas for more samples and to join in on the challenge for December.

Tealight card

Hello!

Only six more days until Christmas, and here is a battery operated tealight card I made-


 and here's what it looks like lit-




 Here are some of the dies I used- christmas tree (Hampton Arts, which also has garland stamps included in this set, but this one would work just as well), frame (Spellbinders Labels Nine, but there are plenty of others that would work), holly leaves (Spellbinders Holly Motif-but I'm going to buy this one!), sentiment (Tim Holtz Christmas Words, but there is a lot of different Christmas words with a lot of different manufacturers.)

For more information, you can find me at Just A Nutter Paper Crafter.

Christmas Boots

Hello everyone, 
Cathie here with some more inspiration for our December challenge. It seems an appropriate theme of Winter for this time of year - of course living in Australia its actually Summer but we still tend to use a lot of winter images for our Christmas Cards. Here's one I have created:
House of Borowski,
Spellbinders Label 8
Brother Scan and Cut for fussy cutting the boots.

For more details head over to my blog House of Borowski

So keep creating with those gorgeous winter images and until next time have a great day.

Up-Cycling My Tree

Hi there, this is Arlene here subbing in for Dawn B today.

Dies R Us


Dies R Us is our sponsor and you could win a $10 gift certificate on our random draw of entries to the Winter Challenge this month, here at Die Cut Divas. I die cut this tree with several others a year ago and now's the time to use this beautiful tree die.  I like to make something used into something new and this tree is cut from a tissue box that my friends from work saved for me.  I doubt that you would have known the origin of my tree unless I told you.  And no one would know this is a tissue box on the card itself.  I am pretty proud of the fact that I re-use many things that would just be put in the re-cycle without going through a re-use first.

To make the Window Frame, I left the frame in the die and dropped the glue onto the panels. I put the upside down frame about 1/2 inch from the edge of my desk.  I turned the card front upside down on top of the frame and pressed the card onto the die, lifted up and my frame was attached to the card in a perfect frame.   I left the center cuts out because I thought it would frame the tree better.



Close-up below.  The paper is that shiny.



Supplies:

Cheery Lynn Designs Frame Window B at Dies R Us
Dees Distinctively Die Overlay 3 at Dies R Us
Cottage Cutz Le It Snow (Dies R Us has a lot of "Let it snow" sentiments here)
Rinea double-sided foiled papers from The Stamp Doctor

Seasons Greeting in Kraft

It's December at Die Cut Diva's, our challenge theme is "Winter", & our wonderful sponsor is-

The prize this month is a $10 gift voucher!

And here is my project:


The dies I used for this card are the holly square (Frantic Stamper) and the sentiment (Impression Obsession). I'm finding I like to stack the sentiments so they have a chunky look. This time it needed contrast, so a white shadow with red words works on this card.

For more information on this card, please visit me at Just A Nutter Paper Crafter.
