Die Cuttin' Divas Anything Goes Challenge

Welcome back for another challenge with Die Cuttin' Divas. 
This week's challenge is ANYTHING GOES!

It's that time of year, and I needed a graduation card for my cousin's daughter who majored in fashion design.  I thought the Forever Young cartridge would be perfect for this card. 

I cut the model at 5" and the word "fashionista" at 5" fit to length. The graduation cap came from Wrap It Up and that was cut at 1".  I used some pink glitter glue on the tassel, and embossed the blue background with Victoria Cuttlebug folder.  I did a little fenagling to get the cap on the model's head (hair), but do love how it turned out.  Here's a few close-up shots.

The sponsor this week is Joy's Life.  She will be offering one of her newly released stamp sets to the lucky winner.

Do hope you'll join us this week at Die Cuttin' Divas.  The challenge is Anything Goes.  You'll have one week to create your card, layout, or altered project, letting us know which die cut you used, and please link your post back to the Die Cuttin' Divas blog. 

Thanks for stopping by--hope you'll join DCD this week.

I'm dying!  That applies to paper, stickers, stamps, punches, embellishments and more.  Some exclusions apply (I sound like an advertisement).  The sale ends 6/9/12.

Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge

Hi Everyone!

We have a recipe challenge this week.
Banner, buttons, and/or birthday.

I incorporated all 3 into my card!

I used the Country Life cartridge for the triangle banner with a scalloped banner border. The letters were cut out on each flag, so I just had to use a bright colored cardstock to show through.  Popped up the flags and added a button to each end.  The oval was made with a Marvy punch and the scalloped oval with Spellbinders Nestabilities.
The flowered paper is K&Co Watercolor double-sided designer paper.  Isn't it pretty?

Our sponsor this week is 3 Girl Jam, providing some fabulous ribbon!.

We hope you'll enter the challenge this week!  Think about banners, buttons and/or birthdays when making your card, layout, or altered project.  Please be sure to use a die cut and link your post back to the Die Cuttin' Divas blog.

We look forward to seeing what you create!

Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #65

Hi Everyone!
Welcome back for another Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge.

This week the theme is FLOWERS.

(don't you just love embossing folders?!)

I used Country Life cartridge to cut the hills and sun.
Put the 3-piece hill together and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Herringbone embossing folder.
On the sun, I used a Sizzix Tim Holtz embossing folder, Mini-Rays.
The stamp is from Michael's $1 bin.

The flowers are from our sponsor this week, Circle B Enterprises!

Hope you'll join us for this theme challenge using FLOWERS.

You will have one week to plan, create, and submit your project. The winner will be announced next Tuesday. Please remember to include which die-cut you used and a link back to Die Cuttin' Divas.

For all those Mother's Day challenges


I knew I bought this cart for a good reason.  I just love words and phrases written in cursive, and this one is certainly no exception.  Isn't this so pretty?  Especially with the rose!  I love how this card turned out.

Ingredients for card:
5x6.5 pre-scored white card
Green patterned cardstock from DCWV Lemon Flower Stack
Yellow cardstock from my scraps, embossed the yellow strip at the bottom with Cuttlebug Polka Dots.
Added some red scalloped ribbon, white lace on top of that
Then embossed a strip of black cardstock with Sizzix Powdered Sugar.
"Mother" is cut from Phrases cart at 2-1/2" with 2 shadows.
Really liking that effect!

I'd like to enter this Mother's Day themed card into the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by, and I wish all the moms out there a

Happy Mother's Day!!

Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #64

It's Tuesday!  And time for another Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge.

This week it's a COLOR challenge:  use purple, black, and orange in your project. 

It can be any theme, and I guess you could call my card a Halloween card, but I think it could also be used for birthday, anniversary,  or any relationship type card.

and here's the inside...

I think this turned out really cute.  Hope you all like it too. 

Here's how I made it:
Black card stock cut and folded to A2 card size
Purple and black paper cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2
Used Fiskars Corner Punch 'n Emboss (sorry, don't know what it's called)
but you can faintly see the little embossed diamonds below the cut.
The little "ghoul" is cut from Paper Doll Dress Up at 3-1/2"
Used Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder on her hair
Gold gem on her necklace
PK Everyday Character Face Assortment stamp
Oval punched light purple cardstock and 2 orange ones
Stamps from Bug Bites Magic Spells set
(aren't they great?!)

Our sponsor this week is Bug Bites.

And the prize is the Magic Spells stamp set.

So we hope you'll play along with this week's challenge.  It's a color challenge to use purple, black and orange--any theme you want.  You must use a die cut in your project and link back to the Die Cuttin' Divas website.  You'll have one week to create your card, layout, or altered project.  Winner will be announced next Tuesday when the next DCD Challenge begins.
