Autumn Leaves

 Our challenge at Die Cut Diva's is brought to you by our wonderful sponsor Bugaboo




This month we are challenging you to create something inspired by this mood board! You don't have to use all the colors, but the inspiration should be noticeable on your creation! 


 

Here is my project-


I decided to use the orange, yellow and green of the mood board to make my fall themed card. I really like how the ink on the embossing folder filled in around the embossed leaves. I just love how colorful it is! Here is the list of materials I used-
  1. Embossing Folder: falling leaves (Darice), ink (Stampin' Up Pumpkin Patch ink pad).
  2. Stamp: sentiment (Ellen Hutson, Thankful), Versamark ink, green embossing powder (Hero Arts).
  3. Dies: leaves (Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves).
  4. Paper: white cardstock (Neenah), dark yellow, orange (Scrap bins), vellum (Core-ordinations).
  5. Other: orange twin, green sequin.

Challenge #311-Pumpkins

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!



Challenge #311-Pumpkins
Make a project about anything to do with pumpkins


This Weeks Sponsor

And the prize is-

A $10 gift code for a B.Y.O.B. (Build Your Own Bundle)


To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!


Here is my project-




I can't help myself-I just love having unexpected, funny sentiments in my cards! Especially since the pumkin is pretty scary, the font is creepy, and there are bats! Here are the materials I used to make this card-
  1. Cricut Cuts: card base (Wild Cards), bats (Artbooking and Chic & Scary), Happy Halloween (Happy Hauntings).
  2. Stamp: sentiment (Two Lips Stamps), Versafine Onyx Ink. 
  3. Paper: orange, yellow, black, white cardstock.
  4. Other: Cuttlebug clear acetate. I added this to keep the inside protected and the pumkin vine from flopping around. I cut the square to size, and inserted it between the cardstock layers. Glossy Accents works well to glue the pumpkin vine to the acetate, as would Rangers Matte Medium. Use sparingly, as it spreads easily.

Die Cut Diva's and Bugaboo!

It's October and time for a new challenge. Our wonderful sponsor is Bugaboo




This month we are challenging you to create something inspired by this mood board! You don't have to use all the colors, but the inspiration should be noticeable on your creation! 


 

Here is my project-


I made this a pretty simple card-that Halloween Kitty (colored with Copics) doesn't need a lot of embellishments. I used My Favorite Things Stitched Rounded Rectangles for the image, along with My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangles for the sentiment (which is by Viva Las Vegas Stamps). The bats are by Spellbinders (paper out of scrap stash), and the eyeball paper is Best Creations.

Tool Time

We would like to say Thank You at Die Cut Diva's to our great sponsor-


and our theme of Masculine/Men/Boys inspired this project-



I know so many people through autocrossing, racing, and classic cars that I can't help but be drawn to tools. This is perfect for so many of the guys (and girls) I know! I'm going to make a ton of cards with this set, and I'm gonna try for a Christmas one soon.


Here are the following dies and products I used-

Frantic Stamper
     Pegboard, Sm. Hand Tools
Paper Smooches
     Birthday Words (but these would work as well)
Paper: kraft, unknown patterned paper
Unknown brads

Bendi Card

 This month at Die Cut Diva's is our great sponsor is-


and our theme is Masculine/Men/Boys!

Here is my project-



This is the first Bendi card I've ever made, and I followed a tutorial out of a British magazine called Cardmaking & Papercrafting. I had to change a few things to suit my taste, but it's definitely a guy card. Here are the materials I used to make this card-
  1. Dies: truck (Impression Obsession), clouds (Impression Obsession), grass (Frantic Stamper), hills (Frantic Stamper Stitched Scene Builders, or these), banner (My Favorite Things), trees, sun (Cricut).
  2. Paper: solid greens, sky (Michaels), big dotted, striped cardstock (Coordination Brights), trees, clouds, truck, clouds (scrap stash).
  3. Stamp: sentiment (Stampendous Birthday Assortment).
I love the way it sets up and doesn't fall down, and I put the white backing on so I can write a note to the recipient.

Welcome to September, and our sponsor this month at Die Cut Diva's is-

and our theme is Masculine/Men/Boys!

Here is my project-


My husband is a gear head. Which means a lot of our friends are gear heads, so an old truck on a birthday card is pretty cool to them. They LOVE the riveted metal look. In fact I made 50 car cards for a gal who wanted plenty of guy cards. I asked her how long she thought the cards would last, and she guessed maybe 2 years! Whew!

Here are the materials I used:
  1.  Dies: truck (Frantic Stamper, Bob's Truck), sentiment (Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday Border Die).
  2.  Paper: gold, silver (Tim Holtz Kraft-Core metallic collection 6 x 6; black, light teal, teal cardstock.
  3. Embossing Folder: Riveted Metal (Tim Holtz Sizzix Texture Fades).
