Welcome back everyone. It is me, Olivia. To all those in the USA, Happy Memorial Day weekend. Hope it turns out to be a lovely one for you. 
 
My project for today is both for inspiration with a bit of steps on how to do it. I decided to try a new technique and make a shaker card. I have only done one or two but learned a new trick of using foam to pop up the die.
 
 
 
The first step is to cut the die on the pattern paper from this fantastic die by Die-Version Whispers Hot Air Balloon Birthday.  Then I ran the foam and die to cut out a thick piece. I used some thin plastic from my stash and did an outline of the top part of the balloon die and cut it to shape. I glued to plastic to the pattern paper and glued to foam to the cardstock and put the sparkles in before I glued the plastic/patterned die to the foam piece.  I added some pearls for accents and used the birthday sentiment die that is part of this set as well. I really like that the sentiment comes with it but cuts separately so allows you to option to not use it for other projects.
 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and be sure to check out all the fantastic dies available at the Dies R Us Store; and do not forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog! A new challenge is offered on the 1st and 15th of each month with a Gift Certificate to one winner

DiesRUs Birthday CAS style

Today, I have decided to showcase some of the stencils and dies that DiesRUs has available.  As I am always in need of birthday cards, I used one of those fun stamp images I have from Some Odd Girl.



The first step was to use my Distress Inks and sponge the stencil on the paper. This stencil is from the fantastic collection available under Memory Box called-Birthday. I used my stamped my image and colored it with my Copics.  I paired it with Die-Mensions-Birthday Topper that served as a great sentiment.

Hope you enjoyed this project and I will be back soon!

    I've actually also finally used up some of those stickers I have in my stash to with this one.  The image was colored with my Copics.

    You're so Pretty Card for DiesRUs

    Welcome back everyone to another inspiration post for DiesUs.  Olivia here and today I did to alter some of dies to create this adorable card.

    I used the Die-Versions Sweet Frames-Pretty Die to surround this adorable image I colored up with my Copics.  I then cut out my Cheery Lynn Butterfly Out die but with this die, I actually cut off the end swirls and reglue them separately onto one end of the image. I then added the butterfly on the other edge of the image.



    Please be sure to take a minute and check out all the fabulous dies available at the Dies R Us Store!  AND, don't forget we have a Dies R Us Challenge Blog too!  A fun new challenge is offered on the 1st and 15th of each month with a PRIZE VOUCHER offered to one lucky winner each challenge.  It could be YOU!

    Dies R Us Post

    Hello Everyone. It is Olivia and welcome to my first DT post for Dies R Us.  Today I decided to showcase a technique called Inlaid Dies.  As my preferred style is more CAS in nature, I thought this was a great way to create a card without too many layers but still pops of color.


     For this project I started off with a colored image from Stamping Bella.  I took the image and cut it out with the Die-versions Stitched Circles.  I took the blue paper and  also cut an exact circle with that same die.  Just like in a puzzle you fit your cut out in the empty space. I cut the Die-Mensions Arrow Love This die on some matching yellow paper and cut the Love This out on the blue paper and placed the yellow die into the spot.  I did my usual coloring with Copics and then added some pearls for bling.


    Thanks so much for stopping by and check back every day for more great inspiration from all the girls on the design team.

    Quick Creations-April Showers Card

    With Spring being in full-effect here, I thought this was a perfect stamp to use now.  This adorable stamp from LaLa Land Crafts is called Paper Doll Marci-Spring.    The image is paired with Carta Bella paper-Soak Up the Sun.  I then used a die from CC Designs called Umbrella Die.
