Happy TuesDIE crafty friends!
Hope you had a great holiday weekend for those here in the states. It is another Terrific TuesDIE and that means another fun project created with dies. Here is my card.
turtle flower-565
I created this square card 5.5 x 5.5. The base of the cardstock is a Kraft cardstock.  The patterned paper is from the Kaisercraft Island Escape paper pad. I did use my teal ink to ink the edges of the patterned paper.

I then used my cross stitch circle die to create a base for my flower. The flower is comprised of the turtle die from Cheapo Dies. I cut it out 5 times in white cardstock and then cut it down and then inked them. I adhered them to a little circle for the center.

Here’s a closer look at the flower. I used some Dew Drops to decorate the center of the flower. I then used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to add a little shimmer to the petals. I then also shaped the petals to give them a more realistic look.

sentiment cu-565
I used an RG Studio 360 digital stamp sentiment and printed it out on clear transparency.

Jumping Dolphins by Connie



Hello my crafty friends!! 

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

This Jumping Dolphin die is an absolute fav of mine! Being a California girl I just love the beach and the waves!! And these waves are gorgeous!!
I decided to cut the waves out twice so I could create a border with them across the bottom of my card. And then I cut each out in two shades of blue for the layers. I added some google eyes on the dolphins just for fun!
My sun is actually a slider too!

Lovely Fence


Hello Cheapo Die Fans!!  Lori here today with this card I made with the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Lovely Fence die.


For my A2 card I started by making the base of the card with Neenah Desert Storm paper.  I took some blue marble paper, inked the edges with Faded Jeans distress ink and attached that to the card.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper and the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Lovely Fence die and cut out the fence.  I used Copic markers to color the fence, birds, grass and flowers and then I added that to the card.  I took some black ink and the sentiment and stamped that onto the card over the birds.  Quick and fun to make!!

Be sure to stop back to the blog often for more inspiration on using these wonderful dies!!

Sunflowers


Hey everyone!  Anne here and today I'm using the Sunflowers die paired with the Cheapo Dies unbranded die Dotted Rectangle set.



This was a pretty quick card to put together.  I die cut the Sunflowers from white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers.



The centers of the flowers was given texture and dimension by adding glue and flocking (Amber Wheat).  Instead of adding glue to the area and then sprinkling flock on top, I added an outer edge of glue to the center of each flower, applied the flock, and then swirled the two together with my fingertip to mix them together and cover the entire flower center.

Once the Sunflowers were dry, I pop dotted it onto a piece of marbled cardstock die cut using the Dotted Rectangle set.

The sentiment (from Avery Elle) was stamped with Brilliance ink (Pearlescent Ivy) and was fussy cut.  This was also pop dotted on top of the fence.

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

Until next week....




Palm Trees



Vickie Y sharing a palm trees silhouette card with you today.

I used watercolor paper to create a watercolor wash using distress inks; I created a circle stencil to sponge ink into to create a background for the sun/moon circle before adhering the die cut to the card.

Here's the Exclusive Cheapo Die used found in the online store:


A Shake Dashboard...

Hi ya peeps! Today I am sharing a little shaker dashboard I made for a friend to celebrate her becoming a mom in the next month or so.
I used both pink and blue due to the fact that the parents want to be surprised! I used 2 dies in this shaker. The first die is called Giraffe and the second die is called I Dig You. I love being able to mingle different dies.  I feel that mixing dies just expands your creativity.
I used a photo pouch with four different sections, added my die cuts and then sequins. To seal them shut I used the Fuse tool but you could sew them closed as well. Just be sure to make your stitch length short and use your thinnest needle.

Lighthouse



Hello Cheapo Dies Fans!  Lori here today with this card I created with the Exclusive Cheapo Dies Lighthouse die.



For my A2 card I started with White card stock for the base of the card.  I took the Exclusive Lighthouse die and cut it out several times with the different color papers.  I took a piece of patterned paper and added the white Lighthouse to the paper.  I then took the red, gray, yellow and dark gray pieces and cut them apart from the die and inlaid them to build my Lighthouse.  I then added the Lighthouse to the patterned paper.  I took the sentiment and some black ink and stamped that on the top left corner of the paper.  I took the compass and some black ink and stamped that stamp onto the top right hand side of the paper.  I took a water stencil and some Texture Paste transparent gloss and rubbed that over the stencil so it would look like waves splashing onto the Lighthouse, but it doesn't show up that well in the photograph.  I then mounted this onto some peacock blue paper and added the whole thing to the white card base.  I took, some white & black bakers twine and wrapped that around the card and tied on the anchor charm.  I love lighthouses, don't you??

Be sure to stop back to the blog often for more inspiration on using these wonderful dies!!

Loads of Love


Hi everyone, Anne here with a double easel card featuring the Loads of Love die set.

Here are the two die sets used to created this card:




I started out by die cutting the largest Cheapo Dies unbranded Cross Stitch Circle Set from white cardstock to create the first easel.  Smaller dies were used from this set to create the second easel.

Nuvo Shimmer Powder was added to the cardstock to create the color.  I spritzed it pretty heavily with water and then spread the color around with my finger.  This broke down the white cardstock (which is what I wanted) and created little "pills".  This was the added texture I was looking for.  Once I was happy with the color, I let it air dry and then added a layer of Multi Medium Matte on top to make sure the "pills" didn't fall off.



The truck was heat embossed using an older embossing powder that I had on hand. 


A Copic marker was used to add color to the sentiment and then a Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker added a bit of shimmer.

For additional details, please visit my blog, Anne-Made.  Be sure to come back here to the Cheapo Dies Blog for daily inspiration.
