Hello Cheapo Dies Fans!!  Lori here today with the newly released exclusive Cheapo Dies Seagull die.

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper and inked the top using a cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass distress ink.  For the bottom of the card I took Salty Ocean distress oxide and rubbed that onto the paper with a blending tool. I added some Peeled Paint distress oxide on top of that and then I spritzed it with water and dried the paper with my heat gun.  I took the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Seagull and cut it out twice, once with white paper and once with brown.  I in-laid the brown pieces so that the pilings looked real and then I added the seagull on top.  I used Copic markers to color the seagull. I took some black ink and stamped the sentiment onto the Neenah paper and then added that to the white card base.

Be sure to stop back often to see more creative ways to use these wonderful dies!

Grad Cap

(Click on photo to enlarge)

Anne here with a card perfect for the newly graduating person in your life.  I used the Cheapo Dies exclusive die called Grad Cap and the scalloped/stitched circles are the Scallop Stitch Circles in the unbranded section.

Using the Scallop Stitch Circle set, I die cut a piece of patterned paper and a piece of blue cardstock.  I heat embossed the sentiment (which is from a rubber stamp set called Graduation Party Time) with Bracing Blue embossing powder.

I die cut the Grad Cap twice from black cardstock and saved the negative pieces.  I added a bit of gold to these negative pieces using a Nuvo Mica Mist  (Antique Gold) and then adhered the second outline die cut on top.

I cut off the tassel that is part of the die cut and added this one for an even more realistic look.

The card base was dry embossed using a Tonic Studios embossing folder (Simple Stripes).

Until next week.....

Teapot Heart

Vickie Y sharing a sweet teapot heart card with you today.

I die cut the teapot heart twice and fussy cut the teapot out from one of the die cuts.  Used a scrap piece of silver glitter paper to die cut the flower.  Placed the fussy cut teapot onto the heart and inlaid the silver glitter flower.  The completed heart was adhered to the scallop stitch square die cut.  Also used the unbranded scallop stitch circle die cut, cut it in half and used on the top left and bottom right corners of the card.

This was a fun card to design and would be perfect for Mother's Day or to give to any special person in your life.

Terrific TuesDIES Butterfly Card by Melinda

Happy Terrific TuesDIES crafty friends!
Today I am sharing a pretty card I created using the exclusive Cheapo Butterfly Die! Here is what I came up with.
gold butterfly die card
This card is a tad bit bigger than the size I normally do. It is a 5 x 6.5 size. I started with a cream cardstock base and then cut a mat from some kraft cardstock 1/8” smaller. The patterned paper is from the Kaiser Kraft Cherry Lane collection.

butterfly die cut cu
The main die cut is the pretty exclusive Cheapo Butterfly die. I cut it out three times in some cream cardstock. I then brushed it with some of my Gold Gansai Tambai metallic watercolor to give it the gold shimmer.

daisy die cut cu
I then used a pretty daisy die from Cheapo. I also used some mini butterfly die cuts from the   unbranded die collection.  I brushed the daisy die cut with some more of the Gold Gansai Tambai watercolor it was the lighter version.

For the little butterflies and the centers of the daisies, I used my Rose Water Nuvo Crystal Drops. I also used my oval scalloped stitched dies for the base layers. Underneath that I used my stitched rectangle scallop dies for the mat underneath.

I also added some Rose Water Crystal drops for a little extra decoration.

sentiment cu
I used the smaller rectangle scallop stitched die to cut out the happy birthday sentiment. I used a little foam tape to give it a little lift.

Here’s a closer look at my little bow to add a finishing touch.

Hello Spring

Hello everyone! Happy Monday!!!

Gloria here, today I want to share with you a pop up box card using  beautiful Cheapo dies.

Here is what I came up with:

To create this card First, I created the box. I Searched Box in a card templateand scored all lines the cut some lines with green card stock. I used this tutorial for making box.

With the Cheapo dies, I made a fun pop up card. I die cut 'Hello Spring' , Duck, Birdhouse tag and Rainy day dies. I watercolored the duck and umbrella image with Peerless watercolor and colored the Bird house with Copic markers. 

It was a fun and happy work.

This is dies I used :

Monkeying Around

Hello my crafty friends!!

It's Connie Can Crop here and my day to post with  Cheapo Dies!  
Happy Tax Monkeying Around there....
I'm back with a fun interactive card featuring the Cheapo Dies Monkey

I am in love with this little guy! And couldn't help but add him to an action wobble because monkey's deserve to monkey around!! LOL!
I kept the design pretty simple, just using some circle nesting dies to embellish the paper background. I wanted my monkey to stand out! I also cut him out and added colored scraps to the back of him to fill in my different layers.

Check out my video snip it!

Hello!  Lori here today and I have this fun card that I want to share with you that I made with the Exclusive I LAVA YOU die!!

For my card I started with Neenah Desert Storm paper for the base of the card.  I took some marbled blue paper and inked the edges with Salty Ocean distress ink and added it to the card.  I took a piece of green printed paper ripped the edges and inked the edges with Bundled Sage distress ink and added that to the very bottom of the card.  I cut out the I LAVA YOU mountain with a gray patterned paper, inked the edges with black ink and added that to the card.  I cut out the lava with red paper and then I stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed it with Rose Gold embossing powder, I stamped more Versamark onto the lava and then heat embossed it with Charred Gold embossing powder and placed that on top of the mountain.  I cut the hearts out with red and dark pink paper and placed them onto the card.  I cut the sentiment out with red paper and put that across the top.  I took some Christmas Red Stickles and covered some of the hearts and the LAVA word with it.  Then I took some Fruit Punch Stickles and covered the remaining hearts and the I and YOU with it. I really love the way the lava turned out with the embossing powder!

This was a fun card to make and it went together super fast with the Exclusive I LAVA YOU die!

Be sure to stop back often to get more ideas on how to use these wonderful dies!!

Anne here with a very glittery card.  I've used the Flamingo die from Cheapo Dies exclusive line and die cut it from Double Sided Adhesive sheets so that I could add various colors of glitter to the entire piece.

Once the piece was die cut, I used an Exacto knife to carefully cut off the backing sheet so that I could add the colors one at a time.   Tooth Fairy glitter was used for the body, Neon Flamingo glitter accentuates the wings, Blue Raven was used for the eye and the beak, and Tangerine for his foot.  Ocean glitter was used for the water, Parisian Mist for the lily pad, and Candy Pink for the blossom.

A basic circle shape was used to create the sun.  This was covered with Distress Oxides (Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey), and then heat set with Clear embossing powder a couple of times.  While the embossing powder was still hot for the last heat setting, I sprinkled some Sunny Daze glitter into the mixture for a bit more sparkle.

The card base was covered with Distress Oxides (Broken China, Faded Jeans) and the bottom edge was cut using a deckle paper cutter.

This was a pretty quick and easy card to put together and can be used for any occasion.  For additional details, please visit my blog, Anne-Made.

Until next week....

Cupcake Gift Card Holder

Vickie Y sharing with you today a gift card holder.

This is a quick and easy project to create using an empty tissue paper tube.  Here are a few step by step directions to get you started:

Flatten the tube and give it a good crease on both sides using your bone folder

Cover one side of the tube with adhesive

Place adhesive side onto the center of a 6x6 piece of patterned paper (pattern side down)

Place adhesive on the tube and wrap the patterned paper around the tube to overlap once both sides are wrapped

Cut the over-hang flush on one end of the tube to create the opening.  Fold the other end up and seal closed with your adhesive.  Decorate as desired making sure the seam will be on the backside of the decorated holder.

The flattened, decorated tube will hold a standard sized gift card.
For my cupcake decorated tube, I also created an insert using the Scallop Stitched Rectangle dies from Cheapo Dies.  I embellished the insert using a multi-loop bow.

Here are the dies used for this project from the Cheapo Dies Online Store:
