Happy Birthday Card at Dies R Us Blog

Hi .. How are you today. This DT project for Dies R Us showcases a birthday card made using lots of die cuts... some single and some matted for pop of colour and depth with texture too. The papers are from the Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs collection.... the colours were perfect for boarders and flowers.

Supply List:
Machine: Big Shot Express
Paper: Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs
Other: Beacon glue, cardstock, ribbon

To start this card I die cut all the pieces and just placed them on the base for proposed placement. I moved them around until I got the look I wanted.

I also decided that I wanted a ribbon tied bow for and accent and it was going to have to be below behind everything so I placed it first along with the border edge.

In this finished card you can see I matted the background, matted a few flowers for pop of colour and left the others in single layers. Both single and clustered flowers with leaves and different sizes looks perfect.

In the close up you get a better view of the details.

Mixing and using lots of dies gives your card a rich but elegant look... it's a perfect birthday card for my family and friends.

Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Paper House Cozy Christmas with acetate overlay

At Paper House today I am showcasing Marbleous paper pad. Specifically the pink and gold combo... but there are so many other colour combos available in the pad. This is a great Christmas page that is rich and elegant.

Supply List:
Paper: Marbleous paper pad
Stickers: Life Organized Planner accentsSTPL - 0014, Cherished Rice Paper border STRB - 0008, Christmas Rice Paper border STRB - 0004, Christmas Magic Cardstock sticker pack Sticky Pix STCX - 2008, 
Accents:  Acetate PAC-0010 
Other: corrugated cardboard, cardstock

To start this page I wanted to make sure that in the background I used the Christmas acetate... so I cut it to fit the print on right side only... leaving the pink n gold left panel plain.

This is the proposed main section with the matted photo.

Then digging into my Paper House stash I found many great accents of all kinds.... lots of gold for sure.

Side panel with some Santa and reindeer from the rice paper strips.... some accents are matted with added corrugated gold paper.

Around the photo some cool snowflakes, reindeer, hearts and the Cozy title. It all showcases the fun photo of my 4 Grand Children at our Christmas celebration get together.

Fun matted strip saying was perfect.  The pink, white and gold is such an elegant and rich combo. I love the Marbleous paper pad.... all the colour combos are amazing.


Thanks for stopping by... come back again.

The Rubber Buggy Easel Card using Dies and Flowers

So I am on a roll... making cards.. Some for Christmas and lots just for everyday card needs. This Best Wishes card is made using Marbleous Paper Pad from Paper House but the dies and accents are from The Rubber Buggy. This one is an easel card with lots of great die cuts.

Supply List:
The Rubber Buggy Products
Other: cardstock, ribbon. foam
Paper: Paper House Marbleous paper pad

The Butterfly circle die is awesome... I did it in white and then matted it with print paper.

The matted die cut is perfect but needed some more colour yet .... so the fun but easy side border with gold trim border looks great.

For the base of the easel card I used some marbled print from Marbleous Paper pad and also die cut the bottom edge.

I also die cut a fun edge border on the corner.

I foam popped the front main piece.

The right side needed to be balanced out so I use a gold border.

The gold border was repeated on the base too.

Die cut Best Wishes is centred on the base.

Next  I added some flowers and assembled the front panel to the easel base card.

The side view shows how easy it is to just fold the panel and glue only 1/2 section of the front panel to it... it stands by itself then for viewing.
