Oval Flower Tapestry

Hello Friends!  Lori here today with an card that I made using the adorable Oval Flower Tapersty die.

For this A2 card I started with white card stock.  I took some pale yellow paper, inked the edges and added that to the card.  I then took the Oval Flower Tapestry die and cut it out twice, once in lavender and once in pink.  I placed the lavender one down first and then I took some of the pink pieces from the pink die cut and inlaid them into the lavender oval.  I took a pink pen and colored in the center of the flowers.

Be sure to stop back for more inspiration on how to use these amazing dies from the Design Team!

Dove Tag

Anne here with a new card to share with you.  This week, I've used the Dove Tag die from the exclusive line of Cheapo Dies.

I started out by die cutting from white cardstock and set that piece aside.  I saved the negative portion and spritzed it with Nuvo Mica Mist (Antique Gold).  The photos have a hard time capturing the shimmer and sparkle of this mica mist, but believe me, it's gorgeous in person.

For the card base, I added Distress Oxides (Wilted Violet, Wild Honey, Worn Lipstick) using a blending tool.  This was also spritzed with the Nuvo Mica Mist.

The photo above captures the glimmer a bit better.

After the base was finished, I pop dotted the frame created from the negative piece on top of the color background.  The focal die cut, which I left white, was then recessed into the center and adhered directly onto the card base.  A couple of stickers that are from my stash add the finishing touch to the card front.

For additional details, please visit my personal blog, Anne-Made.

Until next week....

Whimsical Pink Pig

Vickie Y sharing a sweet and whimsical pink pig using the Cheapo Dies Pig die.

I first die cut the pig using a piece of thin felt then die cut again using a dotted pink cardstock to layer the felt pig onto for stability.

I then used the unbranded oval scallop die cut out in green.  I cut the die in half to layer onto a the inked background panel to give the card the look of a hilly scene for the sweet pig.  I used the vine from last week's spring basket project to embellish along with some paper roses from my stash.

Cat On The Fence...

Good day peeps, today I am sharing with you a little round
 nightime card I made using the die called
Cat On The Fence
Cheapo Dies!

On this project I tried my best to create a night scene using star patterned paper and a tranquil dark blue paper for the background. Plain black was used for the die cut to create a subtle difference from the background blues. 
This die is available from Cheapo Dies in their exclusive dies section of their shop . The die cuts clean and crisp, just right for your project. There are many other dies to choose from in the shop.

Terrific TuesDIES Cross Die Card by Melinda

Hello crafty friends,
Welcome to my 6th Terrific TuesDIES post for Cheapo Dies!  I am super excited to share this card with you. Here it is.

Cheapo Dies Cross Easter Project Card idea
I really love the way this card turned out! It is a 5.5 x 5.5 card size. Not the typical size but still a great size. The card base is white cardstock. The top mat is some Bazzill Bling Lavender and it is 5.5 x 5.5 so you can’t see the white cardstock base.

cross cu
The featured die is the beautiful and exclusive cross die from Cheapo Dies. I love the beauty of this die. I cut 3 out in white cardstock and then stacked them to give them some depth. I covered it in some fine glitter to give it that extra special touch. I didn’t think it needed anything else. I then used the scallop stitched oval die set to cut out three ovals in their graduated sizes. I used some more Bazzill Lavender, white and some Bazzill sage green cardstock. I layered them and used some foam tape in between the layers to give them some lift. I then used my Nuvo Jewel Drops Ivory Seashell to add the little pearl accents around the perimeter of each die.

side w border die
The patterned paper layer is a piece of paper from the Paper Studio Kirby Teesdale pad.

close to side
For the side borders I used the hanging light die. I trimmed off the light and the little hearts that hang and used the flourished part. I cut them out of white cardstock and then covered them in the same fine glitter. I added some strips of pearl border to each side. For the sentiment, I used the Scallop Stitched Oval Die to cut it out. I added some foam tape underneath to give it a little lift. I finished off the look by adding a couple of bows from some seam binding ribbon.

Cheapo Dies Cross Easter Project Card idea
Here is one last look at the completed card. I really like the way it turned out and wish I could capture how pretty it is with the glitter.

Hello everyone! Happy Monday!!!

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

Here is what I came up with:

To create this card first, I die a watercolor paper using a duck die and colored them with Kuretake watercolors. Next, I stacked 3 other die cuts under the duck die cut using glue pen. 

I mounted it on top-folded using double-sided tape, and then added some shiny small gemstones. 

This is the Duck die I used :

Blingy Butterfly Card

Hello my crafty friends!!

It's Connie Can Crop here and my day to post with  Cheapo Dies!  

I'm back with another fabulous card featuring the Cheapo Dies Butterfly.

I wanted to create a solid background for my butterfly so it would stand out against the busy background. So I decided to trace it carefully, then cut it out on this scrap piece of paper.

As you can see it worked out perfectly! I now have my gorgeous die cut and a solid white background.

I think this card turned out beautifully! Such an awesome die with tons of details!

Hello Spring

Hello Cheapo Die Fans!!  Lori here today sharing this Hello Spring card with you after having our 4th Northeaster Snow Storm this week!!  I really need SPRING!  This card makes me feel like it is very close now.  For this card I used the Hello Spring die:

I took some Ombre paper and the Hello Spring die and ran it through my Big Shot. I love the way the die cut out with this paper.  For the base of this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base.  I took a piece of Violet Silence Lemoncraft Paper, inked the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink and then added that to the base of the card.  I then placed the Ombre paper Hello Spring die cut onto the card.  I added some jewels to the centers of the flowers to help make it pop.  I then fussy cut out one of the butterflies from the Violet Silence Lemoncraft paper and glued it to the top part of the card.

Circle Shaped Card How To Egg Die Card by Melinda

Happy Terrific TuesDIE crafty friends!
Today is Terrific TuesDIE #5 and have I got a treat for you! First let me show you what I designed.
cheapo egg die circle shaped card
I created this fun circle shaped card using the scalloped stitched circle dies. I then featured the exclusive egg die from Cheapo Dies.

score circle top

  • I started by cutting out two of the largest circle stitched scallop dies from plain white cardstock.
  • I then used my score board and scored a line about a half inch from the top of only one of the dies.

add glue

  • I used some glue and put some glue on the die with the score line. I only glued above the score line.
  • I lined up the scallops from the dies and then glued them together.

finished base
This is what the card base looks like opened up. This is the perfect alternative to creating shaped cards with dies. This way allows you to keep the shape of the die without losing a portion of it to create a “fold.” Now on to creating the top.

egg cu side view2
For the egg, I started by cutting out several eggs from white cardstock. I then cut one out in Blue and one in Fuchsia. After I cut them out, I stacked the white ones to give them some depth. I then adhered them to a piece of plain white cardstock. I then pieced the blue and Fuchsia pieces into the the white egg. I used some of my green Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen for the tiny green accents. After I finished all of that, I added one last white one to the top to give it all a clean look. I then used my Spectrum Noir plain sparkle pen to give the top layer some shimmer as well as the blue and Fuchsia cardstock. I finished off the centers of the flowers in the egg with some tiny sequins.
side view cu
For the mats I simply cut out a circle from my green cardstock and then used the next size down scallop circle stitched die to cut out the pretty patterned paper. The paper is from the Doodlebug Bunnyville Paper Pad.

Here’s a closer look at the sweet little flower and fence die I used to add a nice border to the bottom of my piece.

sentiment cu
Here is a closer look at my sentiment. I created it and printed it out and then shaped the little banner. I added a tiny button from my stash to finish it off.
