Guest Designer - Baby Boy

Hello Everyone!
Darlene with you today ... and, I am so excited to have been asked to guest design for the next four Sundays here at the Cheapo Die Blog.  These dies are so much fun to create with and very reasonably priced too.  Here's what I have to share with you today.

The die I've used is from an earlier release called rocking horse.

Isn't he just adorable?  
You'll also want to be sure to check out their latest release,
filled with dies you'll want for the upcoming holiday season!
To see them all, pop over to their store HERE.
And I also found them in the Dies R Us Store here.

 I've used Kraft paper to die cut my rocking horse
then simply colored the saddle and rocker using a dark grey
Spectrum Noir alcohol marker.

He has been popped up on Oval Criss-Cross Stitched Ovals
and the only sentiment needed was this fun BABY die which I've die
cut twice and offset to create a shadow.

I have used the Carta Bella Bye Bye Baby designer paper for my
background and die cutting.  I love that it had a rocking horse
in the design to help pull it all together.

Thanks Cheapo Dies for having me as your Guest Designer!
And thanks to all of you for stopping by today!

Hello Soldier

Hello Cheapo Dies Fans!!  Lori  here with you today with a card I made using the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Soldier die.

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I took some camouflage paper, inked the edges with brown ink and added that to the card.  I took some green paper and the Cheapo Dies Soldier die and cut out the soldier and added him to the card.  I took the Dog Tag stamp and some Versamark and stamped the dog tags onto the card.  I heat embossed that with some Hammered Metal embossing powder.  I took some Brushed Pewter metallic paint and filled in the dog tags.  I then stamped the sentiment with black ink onto the card.  This would be a perfect card for anyone in the Military!

Be sure to stop by the blog often for new ideas on how to use your dies!

Thanks for stopping by!

Birdhouse Planter

Hi everyone!  Anne here and today I'm sharing a card created using the Birdhouse Planter from the exclusive line by Cheapo Dies.  The background mats were die cut using the Dotted Rectangle Set from the unbranded section of Cheapo Dies.

I die cut the Birdhouse Planter from white cardstock and then colored it with Copic markers.  The flowers also have a bit of bling added to them curtesy of Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers.

I wanted to add additional flower vines around the Dotted Rectangle mat, so I die cut the planter a couple more times and cut off the sections I wanted.

I pop dotted and adhered the focal point onto a mat die cut from one of the larger dies from the Dotted Rectangle set.

Until next time....

Lovely Fence

Vickie Y sharing a Lovely Fence card with you today.  I did a lot of inlaid elements to create the card by die cutting the Lovely Fence die first with white cardstock, the die cut dotted and gingham designer paper for the inlays.

Here’s a closer look at the cute die cut. I cut the main piece of the apple out in some cute polka dot paper.  I then cut the leaves out in white cardstock and then inked them with some green ink.  I mounted the apple onto a yellow cardstock circle and then added all of that to a circle scallop stitched die.
Here is closer look at my sentiment.

I finished off my card with a border of some pretty ribbon and a bow.

Lazy Days of Summer

Hi there, Diane filling in again this Wednesday
with a fun summer card.
Cheapo Dies came out with many wonderful summer dies
and I have been having lots of fun using them!

This die is Palm Trees

I used water color paper and Color Burst Powders for my background panel.
I love how you never get the same results twice
and I thought it a perfect background for the palm tree scene.
I just love this die!

Here is a nice up close picture of the detail of the die...even seagulls
are part of the die.

The sentiment was computer generated.

No automatic alt text available.

Thank you for visiting with me today....
come back each day to see all the dies being used to inspire YOU!

Airplane from Gloria Lee

Hello everyone!
Happy Monday!!!

Gloria here today, I want to share with you a card using Airplane die from Cheapo dies.

Here is what I came up with :

To create this card, I die cut the airplane and clouds on a white card stock with Cheapo dies. I then colored them using Copic markers.

I added Glossy accents and small sequins on the colored airplane.  I die cut a big white rectangle using Unbranded dotted rectangle die. After the glossy accents dried, I adhere the airplane , clouds and message on the white rectangle die cut.

mounted all elements on A2 size white card base using double-sided tape and added some sequins.

Hello my crafty friends!! 

It's Connie Can Crop here and this is sadly my last day to post with  Cheapo Dies!  My life has taken a few unexpected turns and I have to take care of me for a bit.

County Fairs are right around the corner here and this Howdy die makes me want to get my western gear on and join the fun! 

I love how clean it cuts and can see it working so well on my western layouts too!

Hi Cheapo Dies Fans!!  Lori here today with a card that I made with the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Cross die.

For my card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of Lemoncraft paper, used my tearing ruler to distress the right side of the paper and inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and added that to the card.  I took a piece of gold glitter paper and cut it out with the Cheapo Dies Cross die and added that to a scrap of blue paper, inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and then added it to the card.  I stamped the sentiment with black ink onto the bottom of the card.  I love the way the gold glitter paper makes the intricate design on the Cross stand out!

Be sure to stop by the Cheapo Die Blog often to see what the Design Team have created!!

Jumping Dolphins

Hey everyone!  Anne here sharing a fun card featuring the Jumping Dolphins exclusive die from Cheapo Dies.

I started out by die cutting the dolphins from white cardstock and coloring them with Copic markers.

I hand drew the background and colored it with Copic markers and added highlights using a Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker.  The design was based a much smaller stamp that I have.

I recently received the WR Memory Keepers Happy Jig and thought that would be perfect to use on here. It was fun creating my sentiment out of wire and will definitely be creating more things with my new toy.

A couple strips of washi tape finish off this card.

Until next time....
