Die Cuttin Divas Guest Designer

Today I am exited to be a guest designer over at the Die Cuttin Divas Blog.  The theme for the new challenge is "Superheros" and this is what I came up with -


I decided to do an easel card as I haven't made one of those in ages!!  My fearless kitty is from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' Super Cat Cutting Files.



I die cut an oval shape out of purple pattern paper to make it look like my cat was sitting on a pretty cushion.  My sentiment and the paw prints are from a couple of Craftin Desert Divas stamp sets.  


I am going to use this as a thank you card - again another one for the wedding!!  I had so many great people helping me out and I have just the right person in mind for this one!!  

Thanks for stopping by today and thank you Georgianna for having me be a part of the Die Cuttin Divas challenge this week.

Hello Sunshine!! - PPPR dt

Happy Monday!!!  Today is my turn to post over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Blog and I have a card to share -


My card is 5 inches square since I wanted to make my cut file images as large as possible so that they were the focus of the card.  I designed this card to give as a thank you to a friend who recently treated me to my first spray tan ;)  I wanted to cover up some "imperfections" on my legs so that I would look like  a "hot mama" for my daughter's wedding, LOL!!

To create my card I used two files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons -

"Sunscreen Cutting files" 
 and

One more look - 


I used foam tape to help create some dimension on my card and stamped a cute Peachy Keen face on my sun.  I added a tiny sentiment from a Cardz TV Stamps set.

Stirring Up a Big Thanks - PPPR dt

Happy Monday!!  Today is my turn to post over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' blog and I have a card to share with you.  As many of you might know now after seeing my card for this past weekend's PPPR blog hop - my oldest daughter is getting married this Saturday.   I have 3 girls and this is the first one to get married :) Anyway, I have been busy making cards to give as thank yous for all of the help we are getting to put the wedding together.  This card is designed for my friend who is catering our desserts.


 To create this card I used several images from the "Baking Fun Cutting Files" set.  I just layered the images on top of each other to give the card a fun effect.


One more closer look -



I had the perfect sentiment to go with my card from the Craftin Desert Divas' "Baked With Love" stamp set.  Thanks for stopping by today!

From Our House to Yours - PPPR dt

Happy Monday!!!  Today is my turn to post over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' Blog and I have a card to share -


As soon as I saw the newly released Birdhouses Cutting files I knew I needed to play with them!!
To create my card I also used the tree branch from the Bird on Branch cutting files.  I cut out two of the birdhouses but did a little editing in my silhouette software and using the knife tool I cut off the bases of the birdhouses.  I popped up the birdhouses with some foam tape to add extra dimension to the card.  I hope I have inspired you with my card today - thanks so much for stopping by!!

CDD June Release Inspiration Showcase Day 3

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Craftin Desert Divas Day 3 of our June Release Inspiration Showcase! For the next few days we are going to highlight our new products by sharing the fabulous Design Team's projects for each stamp set that was just released!
Today we are showcasing "Greeting Word Dies" and "Tiny Sentiments" stamp set.

 

We are doing these showcases on our Facebook fan pages so you will want to head over HERE to start at the top of today's showcase and that is where you will want to leave your comments to in order to be eligible for the prizes.
I created a card using both of these new sets along with the "Botanical Layers" stamp set . I did a bit of masking to stamp my images and used 3 different ink colors for each flower. I used Memento dye based inks for all of my flowers. I cut my word die out 3x and glued the layers together to give it a bit of dimension.


 I cut my top layer smaller in the width than my cardbase and popped it up on fun foam. I added some black heart designer paper on my base card and offset my top layer so that the black paper strip showed on the left side. I finished my card off with some "Fairy Dust Sequins" .

Mr Fix It Father's Day Card - PPPR dt

Happy Monday my fellow paper crafters!! Today is my turn to post over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' Blog.  I hope you had a great weekend and were able to stop by the PPPR Facebook hop :-)  I am still working on getting ready for Father's Day and created this card for my husband.  He really is quite handy so this will be perfect for him!!



I used the "Power Drill Cutting Files" for my power drill.  I created an offset to back him up on - I did this to help his eyebrows from getting lost on the background paper.  My background paper is created from the "Man Oh Man Pattern Pack 1".  I did a print and cut with my Cameo using the digital paper.  


Well, one more card down and one more to go and then I should be ready for Father's Day!!  how about you?  I hope I have inspired you for the special man in your life!!
