Up-Cycling My Tree

Hi there, this is Arlene here subbing in for Dawn B today.

Dies R Us


Dies R Us is our sponsor and you could win a $10 gift certificate on our random draw of entries to the Winter Challenge this month, here at Die Cut Divas. I die cut this tree with several others a year ago and now's the time to use this beautiful tree die.  I like to make something used into something new and this tree is cut from a tissue box that my friends from work saved for me.  I doubt that you would have known the origin of my tree unless I told you.  And no one would know this is a tissue box on the card itself.  I am pretty proud of the fact that I re-use many things that would just be put in the re-cycle without going through a re-use first.

To make the Window Frame, I left the frame in the die and dropped the glue onto the panels. I put the upside down frame about 1/2 inch from the edge of my desk.  I turned the card front upside down on top of the frame and pressed the card onto the die, lifted up and my frame was attached to the card in a perfect frame.   I left the center cuts out because I thought it would frame the tree better.



Close-up below.  The paper is that shiny.



Supplies:

Cheery Lynn Designs Frame Window B at Dies R Us
Dees Distinctively Die Overlay 3 at Dies R Us
Cottage Cutz Le It Snow (Dies R Us has a lot of "Let it snow" sentiments here)
Rinea double-sided foiled papers from The Stamp Doctor
Vagabond die cut machine

Seasons Greeting in Kraft

It's December at Die Cut Diva's, our challenge theme is "Winter", & our wonderful sponsor is-

The prize this month is a $10 gift voucher!

And here is my project:


The dies I used for this card are the holly square (Frantic Stamper) and the sentiment (Impression Obsession). I'm finding I like to stack the sentiments so they have a chunky look. This time it needed contrast, so a white shadow with red words works on this card.

For more information on this card, please visit me at Just A Nutter Paper Crafter.

Clean and Simple Thanks

Hi  Dawn T here to share today my CAS Thanks card.


A2Z scrapbooking are the main retailer of Hero Arts Digital kits and today I have used two different ones to make my card.   



I do my digital editing in Microsoft Word.  It gives me lots of options when using the images - such as adding shadows (as I did with my Thanks sentiment) and to change the colour and size of my images (as I did with the flowers.

I used the following digi sets
Say it in Pieces
Petty Blossoms Printable  

I snipped one of the blossoms and pasted it onto my page.  Then resized, recoloured and printed it onto some Canson Bristol card.  I used a Lil'Inkers die to cut it out.  I used Zig markers and my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to colour (lots of sparkle in real life) .  A few Nuvo drops in Rhubarb Crumble and it done.

thanks for playing along with us this month.  We've loved having you join us.

Thanks

Our theme this month "Give Thanks"  and our sponsor is a2z Scrapbooking.  Did you know that a2z are the sole retailer for Hero Arts digital images.

Today I have used a Digital set called "Chalkboard Frames and Messages" to make my card


For my background I used Hero Arts Asian Flowers stencil with some HA pale purple and blue inks.   I printed and fussy cut the Thanks label.  My butterflies are from an older Hero Arts stamp and die set.  I used Copic markers to colour them.   My card base was made with a Catherine Pooler Designs die.

Do come and join us with your cards of Thanks.
