A Blue Christmas ...

Hello everyone!
 Darlene with you today and I have another holiday card to share with you today using two dies from our latest release at the Cheapo Dies Store.


The dies I've used on today's creation are:



Reindeer Scene


 I've used navy blue card stock for the background.  After embossing it to create my 'snowfall', I've gone over the top portion lightly with a sponge dauber and white dye ink. 


I've die cut the deer scene twice and glued them together for added dimension.


 After putting it all together, I added red Stickles for the berries on the Holly Branch and Diamond Stickles on the reindeer's swirly antlers for added sparkle.  Looks so pretty in real life!

Black Cat Sitting on Tree


Hello Cheapo Dies Fans!!  Lori here today with another Halloween card!  For this card I used the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Cat Sitting on Tree die.




For this A2 card I started with Neenah Desert Storm card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of watercolor paper, my blending tool and Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Wilted Violet distress oxide and added them to the paper.  I then spritzed it with water and dried it with my heat tool.  I took some black paper and the Cheapo Dies Cat Sitting on Tree die and cut that out and added that to the bottom right side of the paper.  I took some black ink and stamped the sentiment onto the card on the upper left hand side. I took some black ink and inked the edges of the paper and then added it to the card.

A Pumpkin and A Crow

Hello, everyone!  Welcome to Friday and my first time sharing as a new member of the Design Team for Cheapo Dies.  The die I'm featuring today is the Pumpkin & Crow die.  


For my card, I cut out three of the images and glued them together to give some dimension to the die-cut.  To the black card base, I attached a piece of Copper Glitter Paper.  Going through my Graphic 45 stash, I came across these various patterned papers that all worked well together so I layered them on top of the glitter paper.  To give the pumpkin and the crow a bit of sparkle, I covered them with Clear Wink of Stella.

Pumpkin Patch


Vickie Y sharing a card using the Exclusive Cheapo Die Pumpkin Patch with you today.

I die cut the Pumpkin Patch using Rust cardstock then inlaid the die cut areas on the end pumpkins.  Used a piece of plaid scrap designer paper to die cut the center pumpkin and inlaid the plaid pieces into the center pumpkin to give a bit of contrast between the pumpkins.  The black cardstock panel has a piece of cheesecloth layered behind it.  The die cut was embellished using candy dots and sequins layered onto the black panel.  A gingham bow and a doily from my stash are also used as embellishments.

Flying Witch

Hi, Diane here filling in again  today with a fun
Halloween die 'Flying Witch'.


I used a glossy card stock and several  TH 'regular' Distress inks
 for the moon and background.


I added gue to the stars then sprinkled with a Tangerine glitter.

The tree line along the bottom is a scrap of Halloween paper
and is actually very shimmery.


I just love how easy this die cuts and has such a perfect image!



Thank you for visiting with me today and be sure to stop back tomorrow
and every day for lots of inspiration using Cheapo Dies!!

Twofer Tuesday Bare Branch and Christmas Tree

Hello, Friends.  It's Kren here and I am excited because I am wearing my Cheapo Dies Design Team hat for the first time.  Today is Twofer Tuesday--two projects using Bare Branch and Christmas Tree. 

 Why make two?  While die cutting and working with a layout, make two cards while supplies and scraps are out on your work table.  It will save time and you will have twice as much fun.  


Here's what I created for you.
  





Exclusive Christmas Tree Pattern on Vase


Tuesday Tips for creating these projects.  I die cut the Bare Branch several times.  I created a vase out of circle and oval dies and punches cutting off the bottoms and tops.  I die cut the Christmas Tree twice and used the pattern from the widest portions to add the design to the vase.  Creating the off-centered circle window/s came next, and then I mounted the vase and branches into the circle layout.



Check out the links below and see you next Tuesday!

Flying Witch


Hello Cheapo Dies Fans!!  Lori here today with a fun Halloween card!  I don't know about you, but Halloween is one of my very favorite Holidays!  I just love decorating for Halloween and for making fun and spooky cards!! For my card today I used the newly released Exclusive Cheapo Dies Flying Witch!


For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of watercolor paper, the spider web stencil, my blending tool, Spiced Marmalade and Wilted Violet distress oxides and blended the distress oxides onto the paper.  Then I spritzed it with water and let it dry.  I took the Flying Witch die and some black paper and cut out the witch.  I placed the witch onto a silver circle and then added that to the card.  I took the sentiment and some black ink and stamped the sentiment onto the watercolor paper.  I inked the edges with black ink and then added it to the card.

Vickie Y sharing two Halloween cards with you today!

My first card shown above uses the new Cheapo Die Spooky Boot.  It was die cut using white cardstock and colored using Prisma Markers.

The card below uses the Cheapo Dies Cat die.  I used lots of scrap designer paper to create the background layer panel.


I used traditional Halloween colors on both cards.
