Snowflake Kisses... a DCD post

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a Thank You to KatScrappiness for being our sponsor this month.
This will be my final post with the DCD team, however I will be around blog land.
For my project background I used Tattered Angels sprays in various shades of Blue with a Silver overspray and let dry for the weekend.
Using Lawn Fawn glitter paper I cut the snowman as well as the snowflakes using the dies from the Snowflake Kisses and Stitched/Layered Snowman sets.
I then used Black Cardstock for the eyes, hat and buttons, the nose is from orange cardstock and the necktie as well as arms came from paper scraps from Doodle Bugs Down on the Farm paper pad.
My layers were put together using Art Glitter Glue and attached to my card panel using foam tape.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by. Please follow my blog and the Die Cut Diva's blog for more fun coming up.

Hugs and Smiles from Joy Clair Designs

Hi there friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here and for my project today I used the stamp set Hugs and Smiles.
In order to make this card, first stamp the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I then spritzed the panel with water. Next, sprinkle on Ken Oliver's Color Burst powders in Chartreuse and Alizarin Crimson. The best part was watching the color powders do thing, and put the panel aside to dry.
Once the panel was dry, stamp the sentiment using VersaClair Ink in Nocturne.
The next step was to add 3 drops using Pico Embellishment drops in Gold and let dry. Once the panel is completely dry you can add foam tape to the backside of the panel to give dimension when adding it to the card base.

I hope this has inspired to you make some Valentine's cards of your own.

Special Delivery with Makers Movement

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. It's LeeAnn with a project I made using The Little Feet Stamp and Die sets from Makers Movement. 

To make this project, first I stamped out these adorable images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used Artist Loft alcohol markers in yellows and pinks to color these images. 
The sentiment was stamped using Pink Shimmer Delicata ink. 
I used the matching dies to cut out the images using my die cutting machine.
To make the simulated dresser drawers I used Kraft Cardstock and a Hero Arts woodgrain stencil. I blended over the stencil using Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink.
I cut the panels to .75" x 4" and added 2 brads to simulate the drawer handles. 
The plaid panel is from a Paper Studio "It's A Girl" paper pad. 
I arranged all pieces on a Kraft 4.25" x 5.5" top loading card base.
The "drawers" are popped up with foam tape and the stamped images are adhered using Tear-It tape. 
These stamp and die sets, along with many others are available on the Maker's Movement website

Candy Hearts... a Joy Clair project

Hi there friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a project I have created using stamps by Joy Clair Designs.

When making this card I used the Candy Hearts Set.

First, I stamped the hearts with with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, which is alcohol marker friendly.
Secondly, I used Inkadinkado masking paper to get the vision of the hearts overlapping.
I colored the hearts using Artist Loft alcohol markers, and then stamped the sentiments using VersaClair Nocturne ink, this is a black pigment ink that is great for sentiments, and stays wet long enough for embossing should you choose to do so.

Happy Valentine's Day from DRU and LeeAnn

Hi there friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with my final post with Dies R Us.
I had so much fun making this card, as Lawn Fawn is one of my favorite companies and I used a lot of their product on this. 
I used the Butterfly Pop Up die set to cut out the main frame from silver mirror cardstock, and the wings from pink pastel cardstock. 
I used the Hillside dies from the Shadowbox set, and then I used images from the Oh Gnome stamp set, along with the Happy Valentines Day from the Happy Happy Happy add on stamp set. The background blue paper is Lawn Fawn Watercolor cardstock. 
I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored using Spectrum Noir Markers. The sentiment is stamped using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

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.

Hello My Crafty Friend.. a DCD Post

Kat Scrappiness is our terrific sponsor for January 2020.  
Kat Scrappiness

The challenge is NEW THINGS 
(new stamps, dies, stencils, embossing powders or folders, papers, digi images)

We all made it through the holidays, so now it's time to craft away and what better prize than a Kat Scrappiness Prize pack which includes your choice of one stamp set, one die and three packs of embellishments (sequins, gems or sprinkles)?  

For my post today, I have created 2 cards using the Hello My Crafty Friend die. I love this die and have used it to send many cards out. 
I made a blended background using various Distress Oxide inks, used the die to cut out the sentiment, and added the background to a white card base.
I then used a mint green card base, a panel of rainbow colored paper, a panel of white, and then the blended sentiment which was cut from the original blended background. Two cards in one cut and very easy to make.
