Hello my dear friends. I’m excited to let you know that Dies R Us challenges begin today! Now there will be a new place for crafters to showcase their talent and share their projects! Great news is I’m part of the Dies R Us challenge blog DT, so on the 1st of each month you’ll have the chance to check out one of my designs there, featuring dies you can find at the Dies R Us store.
I have to thank everyone who’s part of Dies R Us, from Dani (owner) to Darlene (DT coordinator) and all the ladies in the design team (A and B), for their warm welcome, kindness and support. You should know that this DT is amazing, and everyone in it has a gorgeous style of their own. You will travel worldwide visiting each of our blogs, since this team is international!
Today I have a card and a brief photo-tutorial to share with you. I wanted to create a Mother’s Day card using dies in an altered way. Here it is:
Spellbinders Shapeabilities – Parisian Motifs
Spellbinders Shapeabilities – Parisian Accents
Spellbinders – Nestabilities – A2 Filigree *Shery K. Designs paper – Downtown
Flourishes stamps – Spring Bouquet
Ranger Embossing ink
Inkadinkado embossing powder in Glam Gold
Zap! heat tool
Bazic two sided tape and foam tape
Other generic materials
Papyrus cardstock in Peach
Textured cardstock in Aquamarine
Eggshell cardstock in white
1″ saten ribbon in peach
* Please notice that the dies I used are listed and linked to Dies R Us, so just click to visit the store and purchase them if you like. If a die is unavailable you can click on ‘add me to the wait list’ and they will contact you once it’s back in stock.
As you can see the dies were folded and overlapped to create a 3D medallion. Below I’ll show you how the original dies look like and how to modify them:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time.
