4th Of July

This is my card for the Dies R Us Design Team. Here is my card for the 4th of July. The entire "frame" not the fireworks background was cut with Amy Design - American Frame die.

I cut the frame out of white cardstock using the  Amy Design - American Frame. I couldn't just leave it white so I covered a small piece of paper to fit behind the flag and the stripes on the right. I colored the paper red and added a thick layer of red Stickles. I also added a bit of gold to the flame and blue on USA and the flag. I also put silver glitter paper behind the Statue Of Liberty and ended with coloring the skyline dark gray.

For the fireworks I tested embossing powders I thought would show up on the dark background. Since the red didn't show well I stamped with white, dried then embossed in red. Still not so good so I stamped again in silver.The fireworks is a stamp set from The Ton, Pyrotechnics


The blue and pink didn't show the detail lines so well so I experimented. I stamped with Versamark then brushed on Pearl EX powders which worked great! The colors in this shot are more true to life. The gold, greens and purple are the Pearl Ex ones.

Using a Bold Sentiment

Today for my Dies R Us Design Team card I am sharing a card using a bold sentiment die. I just love this die by Penny Black.To see how I made the background be sure to check out the video.


Here is the card  made. I used a background from my stash but I did film it this time:-) I used Gina K Sweet Corn cardstock for the frame Sue Wilson Designs - Belgian Collection - Bruges  and the top layer of the sentiment Penny Black - Just For You.


I cut out the Penny Black - Just For You out of Onyx Black and Sweet Corn. I offset the top layer a bit to show the black.


I embellished the bottom right corner with one lily from  Impression Obsession - Dies - Lily Trio  and positioned behind the 3D lily. The large lily is from y flower stash. Dies R Us has a similar die Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 12PK - Flower, Lily by Susan Tierney-Cockburn

Mix & Match Diecuts

Today I made a card with diecuts from several different companies. I am also on a mission to use my background stash:-) I'll be doing videos for some of the backgrounds used soon so be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel:-)





You can see the layering on the video. I just had a selection of diecuts that I glued onto a background. Using dies is a great way to make a quick and easy card that will WOW the recipient!
