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.

Cross


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....


Butterfly Flourish


Vickie Y sharing a card using my favorite color combination today, white, pink, and green!  I used the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Butterfly Flourish die.

I die cut the Butterfly Flourish once using green cardstock and twice using pink cardstock.  I fussy cut the pink butterflies from the flourish and layered them onto the green flourish.  Used small adhesive pearls to embellish each butterfly.

Back To School

Hi, Diane filling in again this Wednesday
until all our new DT spots are filled.

I have a rather fun and unique die I used today
just perfect for a back to school card!


I die cut in white, then colored in with Copics.
basically trying to 'mimic' the colors below.



I backed the die with a cream card stock then simply just cut around it.

I used an embossing folder and a chalk pen to
outline the words school time on the folder



I added some twine and tied on a little ceramic  school slate button.

inspiring creation from our Design Team using these fabulous dies!

Heart Die Shaker Card by Melinda

Happy Terrific TuesDIE crafty friends,
Melinda here with you today. It is my turn to share and I am excited to share this super pretty shaker card I created!
heart die card
Here is a look at my completed card. It is an A2 base. I used a couple o the stitched scallop rectangle dies and created a frame. I then backed it with a piece of acetate and then gave it some lift with some foam tape. I used a piece of patterned paper from the DCWV Magnolia Stack. It is gorgeous and colorful paper. I kept everything else white to give it a clean look.

heart closeup
Here’s a closer look at the pretty heart die. I popped up the little heart and glued both pieces on top of the acetate cover. I added some flat back pearls and used some Nuvo Drops for the smaller drops around the scalloped edge.  I added some seed beads, some beads from Queen and Company and some glitter to the inside for the “shaker part”.

sentiment cu
Here’s a closer look at the sentiment I created. I printed it out and added it to the border of seam binding ribbon.

Here’s a closer look at the seam binding ribbon bow.

Musical Die


Hello Cheapo Dies Fans!!  Lori here today with this card that I made with the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Musical die. I just love this die!  Both my husband and daughter play the piano so I am sure this die will get a lot of use in my house!


For my A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I took the Piano Keys paper, inked the edges with gold ink and added that to the card.  I took the Exclusive Musical die and cut it out three times with white, gold shimmer and black shimmer paper.  I layered them on top of each other and placed them in the center of the piano keys.  I took the sentiment and stamped it with Versamark onto the top of the card.  I heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I took the gold ink and inked all the edges of the card.  I took the Crown crinkle ribbon and made a bow and added that to the top left hand corner of the card.  I hope you like my card!

Be sure to stop back to the blog often for more creative ideas on how to use your dies!

Thanks for stopping by!
