Use Die Cuts

Good Morning
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Hope you are well and ready for another new challenge over at

Our theme this time is USE DIE CUTS , now that's an easy one

For this challenge we are delighted to announce that we have two sponsors

Prize 3 Digi images of winners choice

Prize 4 Digi images of winners choice.

My first DT make is using an image from Lemon Shortbread and
is called Sweet Lolita Bouquet and can be purchased HERE


1. Using an 8 x8 card I created an easel card. I embossed two sheets 
of pearlescent card with the new Crafters Companion  Embossing
folder( Parquet), cut to the required size and adhered them to the card.

2. The image was coloured with Copic's, I have  chalked the edges to
give a softer look and then die cut using a  Tattered Lace die.

3. The large frame down the left was done using Tonic Mystic Vine
die. The flourishes with Tonic Flourish dies and the flowers using
SB Blooms Two, the butterfly is also from SB.

4. The stopper was created  using the Tattered Lace Trent Border die
I cut two and secured the inners of the bottom one, then added the
other minus the inners so that I could gain the height to hold the card.

To complete I added pearls the the stopper, flowers and butterfly.

My second card has been made using the image Apple of My Eye
from Karleigh Sue and can be purchased HERE.


1. Card size is 6 x7.5 and I have rounded the corners. Matted using paper from
First  Edition Paper Pad but before adhering to the card I cut an aperture
in the centre.
    2. I die cut the lattice and adhered this to the card. The image has been coloured
 using Copic's and then fuzzy cut and mounted on to the card using foam pads.

3. To create the flourish's I used the Tonic Flourish Die and also used one
of their corner dies.

4. I arranged flowers  down the flourish and added red gems to the lattice
frame and on half of the circle.

This is an easy challenge and we  would love to see lots of you
joining in and we look forward to seeing your creations.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
