Make it Monday #132


This week we have to use layered die cuts on the Make it Monday feature by Papertrey. The talented Dawn McVey explains in a tutorial how to do that. She has some valuable tips on how to make this as easy as possible!




I used a paper swatches from Home Depot  for this card. Since it was kind of drizzly and cloudy yesterday, I opted for a sunny yellow. 


Supplies: Papertrey Rickrack border dies and Filigree Border Die, Papertrey Think Big Favorites, gems. 

I frequently use paper swatches for my cards. They have great colors and you immediately get matching colors in the same color group. On Operation Write Home Nancy talks about those swatches and you can link up your card.

Hm - I am wondering if this could be put into the Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground, because of my use of paint swatches??? I'll let Diane decide that....

And lastly I am linking this up with the Die Cut Divas - Let's celebrate challenge

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
