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.

Masquerade by Connie


Hello my crafty friends!! 
Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there!!

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

This week I was inspired by my upcoming trip to New Orleans! And thought this Masquerade die would make the perfect card for my friend that I am going with! I love the way this turned out and can't wait to use this die on some of my scrapbook pages too!!


I cut the die out in a solid rust color and then again in a gold and purple foil just so I could add the colored embellishments. I was amazed at how easy the foil cut through and will definitely be using more foil in the future with these dies!

Coral Reef


Hello Blogging Friends!  Lori here today with this card that I made with the Exclusive Coral Reef Cheapo Die


To make this  A2 card I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper and the Exclusive Coral Reef die and cut out the paper.  I colored it with Copic markers.  I took a piece of Desert Storm card stock to make the base of the card.  I then cut out a piece of blue water paper and added the colored in Coral Reef  and added that to the water paper.  I took a piece of gray paper and cut out a square in the middle of the paper and then attached it to the water paper with the Coral Reef attached.  I took some Versamark and stamped the sentiment onto the top of the card in the middle.  I then heat embossed it with Silver Wow embossing powder.  I added the whole thing to the card base and that was it!  Easy Peasy!  I love these Cheapo Dies for making a quick card!

Octopus


Anne here with a fun birthday card using the Octopus exclusive die and the Dotted Rectangle Set from the Unbranded section.


To start off, I die cut the octopus three times from white cardstock and then I added color using Distress Ink and Distress Oxide (Fired Brick).

After die cutting the Dotted Rectangle, I spritzed it with Nuvo Mica Mists (Fresh Pear, Nebula Blue, Antique Gold).  The photo doesn't do justice to how shimmery this mica mist really is in person.

I only adhered the heads of the octopuses to the backdrop so that their legs could curl up and around.  Nuvo Glitter Drops (Midnight Sky) was added to their eyes.

The dark blue layer was dry embossed using an older Sizzix embossing folder (Swirls).  This was then adhered to the cardbase, which was also spritzed with the Mica Mists.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team is creating for your inspiration.  Please visit my blog, Anne-Made, for additional details.
