Twofer Tuesday Christmas Gift Card Holders

Hello, Friends. Happy Tuesday.  
It's Kren here sharing another project using some of the 
wonderful products from Cheapo Dies
 Today I am using Christmas Tree and Holly Branch
as embellishments for gift card holders.







And here are the Tuesday Tips for creating this project.
Sometimes thinking small pays off because you can tuck it 
under the ribbon of a gift or insert in a regular envelope for a gift.
Work in the same color families during a work session for easy assembly of 
elements and embellishments.

See you next Tuesday!

Three kings by Gloria

Hello everyone!
Happy Monday!

Gloria here today, I want to share with a Chirstmas card using Three kings die from Cheapo Dies.

Here is what I came up with :

For create this card, I made the watercolor background first.
 I colored with blue and purple colors with  Kuretake watercolors on the watercolor paper panel using water brush.


I die cut the three kings image with black card stock and die cut the star part. I did gold heat embossing with the star part and adhere on the black die cut star part. I mounted all elements as shown a top-folded card using double- sided tape and added some white dots on the watercolor paper panel with white gel pen.

ELF

Hello All!
Darlene with you today sharing a fun holiday creation 
using dies from the Cheapo Dies Store.

 

Today I've created a fun card using the die called:

Elf Boot Home
 
Cheapo Dies - Elf Boot Home

 I had a lot of fun creating this card and here are a few of the steps I took in it's creation . . .

I wanted to create a PAIR of Elf Boots so after die cutting the first one from the shiny side of my foil paper, I turned the paper over and die cut another boot.


VIOLA!
A PAIR of boots lol ...

I cut a panel of white card stock an 1/8" smaller than my card base and dry embossed it using a snowflake embossing folder.  Next I ran a small piece of red organza ribbon through the top of my boot ... looped it over the top of my embossed panel ...


Then attached it to the back of the panel with a piece of scotch tape.


I did the same with the second boot but before gluing the second boot down to the embossed panel, I linked the two together  ...


A little scrap of holiday ribbon and a punched snowflake adorn the top of my cute boots.


I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared today, and, if you're not familiar with Cheapo Dies, you are missing out!!!

Merry Christmas


Hello Cheapo Dies Fans!!  Lori here today and I have this Christmas card I made using 3 of the Exclusive Cheapo Dies!!

Cheapo Dies Exclusive Merry Christmas die:




Cheapo Dies Exclusive Lucky Horseshoe die:


I started with Kraft card stock for this 6" by 6" card. I took a piece of wood grain paper, inked the edges with brown ink and added that to the card. I took some metallic silver paper and the Lucky Horseshoe die and cut the horseshoe out and added that to the card.  I took the Merry Branch die and some green paper and some green shimmer paper and cut out the Merry Branch die in each of those papers and added them to one side of the horseshoe.  I took the Merry Christmas die and some cranberry paper and cut out Merry Christmas and added that to the top of the card.  I took some white pearls and placed them onto the Merry Branch.  I took some red, green and white Bakers Twine and made a bow and added that to the horseshoe. 

I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful today!

Glittered Cherry Blossom

Hello crafty friends!

It's Designer Jess here today with a new card to share featuring the "Blooming Cherry Blossom Die".  I noticed that I'm drawn to a lot of the branch style dies!  Funny how that happens, isn't it?

Cheapo Dies - Blooming Cherry Blossom




I created this handmade card for you:




I used the die twice - one cut was on the leafy patterened paper, the second cut was on the glitter paper!  Then I fussy cut out the blossoms, ran them through my Xyron and adhered them to the base cut!

Now, if you want to see what else is available for dies, you can check it out here:


Thanks to all of you for stopping by today.  Can't wait to see you again soon!

Twofer Tuesday Poinsettias

Hello, Friends. Happy Tuesday.  Kren here sharing projects using some of the wonderful products from Cheapo Dies.  I am using the Poinsettia die set.  

I love this bold designer paper for the first card
 and added matte metallic shimmer for the flower.



The second card uses vellum for the poinsettia die cuts
that are colored the vellum on the back. 
Using polka dotted dry embossing ties it all together 
and the end result is a more delicate card.





Here are the Tuesday Tips for creating these projects.
Dry embossing vellum adds texture.
Using vellum to frame a die cut sets it apart from the designer paper.


Poinsettias aren't symmetrical so have some fun with the petals and leaves.

See you next Tuesday!

Snowflakes by Gloria

Hello everyone!
Happy Monday!

Gloria here today, I want to share with a Chirstmas card using Snowflakes die from Cheapo Dies.

Here is what I came up with :


This card is Eclipse technique card.
The eclipse effect is one of my favorite techniques to highlight the beautiful shape of the die. 

For create this card, I colored with blue and green colors with  Kuretake watercolors on the watercolor paper panel using water brush.


Once the panel completely dry, I die cut the Snowflakes from the parts of the watercolored panel.
I die cut the snow flakes more and then stacked 4 other die cuts under the colored snowflakes die cut using glue pen. 
 I mounted them all on top-folded card using double-sided tape, and then added some shiny gold sequins.

In the Quiet Forest . . .

Hello All!
Darlene with you today sharing a fun holiday creation 
using dies from the Cheapo Dies Store.


 Today, I've once again used TWO Cheapo dies
for my creation.

Reindeer Scene


 and

Holly Branch


I began my creation by die cutting the Reindeer Scene twice from white card stock.  While the one was still in the die, I
colored the pieces that would typically 'fall out' with a darker blue alcohol marker.  Then very carefully removed it from the die trying to keep as many 'fall out' pieces in tact as possible. 


Next I glued my reindeer scene to a die cut circle and reinserted the pieces that fell out.  Once it was all adhered to the circular panel, I went over the pop out pieces again with a lighter blue alcohol marker.


 Lastly I glued the 2nd white reindeer panel over top to hide the mis-coloring and create a clean image.


I have used a 3d snowflake embossing folder as the background for my focus image and also matted my reindeer scene using another circular die cut from snowflake designer paper.  Once this was all together, I decided to add the Holly Branch.

The branch was die cut from a scrap of white card stock then colored using markers and glued to the lower front of my card.  I like how it mimics the scrolly antlers of the deer.


I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared today, and, if you're not familiar with Cheapo Dies, you are missing out!!!

Barrels of Fun


Hello Cheapo Dies Fans!!  Lori here today with this fun Birthday card I made using the Exclusive Monkey Barrel die.



For this 4 1/2 inch by 5 1/2 inch card I started with Neenah Desert Storm paper.  I took 3 different shades of brown paper and cut out the Money Barrel die in each color.  I took my sanding tool and sanded the paper a little bit to give the wooden barrels a distressed look.  I pieced the 3 barrels together, mixing and matching the different shades of brown paper and I put them on the side.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper and stamped the grapes at the top of the paper and then colored in the grapes and leaves with Copic Violet and Green markers.  I took the sentiment stamp and stamped that next to the grapes with Chianti ink.  I then arranged the 3 barrels onto the card.  I took some Brown ink and rubbed in under the barrels.  I took Milled Lavender distress ink and rubbed that onto the background.

I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful today!

Love Collage

Hello and Happy Friday!  Marsha here sharing a card featuring a new die from Cheapo Dies.


Today's card showcases the Love Collage die.  I first stamped the Buffalo Plaid Background onto the card base using Earl Grey ink.  The heart is cut from Sugar Cube card stock and attached directly to the card front.  I stamped a sentiment from the Cutting Edge - Flowers stamp set onto Cherry Pop cardstock and popped it up on foam tape to give it a bit of dimension.  The final touch was adding heart shaped enamel dots.  A simple design but I love how the collage stands out against the red.
