It's A Boy

Hi, Diane here filling in on the blog today with the cutest baby card
just perfect for a baby boy.

The focus of my card is  the Cheapo Die Rocking Horse.

I die cut the horse from a dark blue card stock and once again from
a tiny star designer paper, layering the darker under the die cut\for a bit of a shadow.

This card could be just as easily for a baby girl,
just by changing the colors.

and very affordable dies in stock.

Hanging Light Die Card by Melinda

Hello crafty friends,
My name is Melinda. I am super excited to be here today and be part of the 2018 Design Team for Cheapo Dies.  Like many of you, I love, love to craft but often find myself on a limited budget. So finding great quality craft items at an affordable price is always a big deal!  I hope my time here will encourage you to check out and invest in what Cheapo Dies has to offer!  I will be sharing every Tuesday! For my inaugural project, I created a card using the hanging light exclusive die. Here’s my project.

Hanging Light Die Card by Melinda Beltran
My card is a standard A2 size. I used some patterned papers from some paper stacks in my stash. My card is of white cardstock and top folding.

I started by cutting out the Hanging Light Die I used from some plain white cardstock. I then used my Versamark ink pad and embossed some Stampendous moonstone embossing powder onto it. I repeated the process twice so that I would have a nice thick layer of embossing powder on the die cut.

Here's a little bit closer picture to show the thickness of the die cuts.

I used the oval scalloped die to cut out the thinking of you sentiment. I used the scalloped rectangle die for one of the mats. I used the Nuvo Crystal Drops Gray Mist for a subtle extra touch.

I used some Robin's Nest Cotton Candy Dew Drops for a decorative touch at the top. I also used some Gray ink to ink the edges of the larger patterned paper mat.

I added a final touch of a cute bow with some seam binding ribbon.

Hello everyone!
Happy Monday!

Today I get the honor to show you my first Cheapo Dies card as a designer of Cheapo Dies team.
I feel very blessed to be given this wonderful opportunity, and look forward to sharing lovely Cheapo Dies product with you . 

Here is my first card :

With the Cupid Die, I made a fun and cute Valentine's day card. 

To create this card, I die cut the cute cupid image from black card stock using the Cupid dieI then made my own background with Distress Oxide inks using mini blending tools and trimmed it out using paper trimmer. I mounted it using double-sided tape first, and then add the sentiment banner using foam tape. Then embellished this the purple shiny sequins.

For detail, please visit my blog here.

This is the die I used :

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
