A very special card to share

I have one of my favorite cards to share today not only for the gorgeous die but because it's some of my very favorite colors.  The die i am using today is from the Romancing the Swirl collection from Becca Feeken and is one of the newest card creator dies.  Which means that it designs the complete card front and all you have to do is add embellishments.  I love that so much ......

This was fun too because i love the colors of the costumes from India and Pakistan and i had the perfect papers.  They are so vibrant and beautiful with touches of gold and silver that really set it off.  I added small golden colored rhinestones on the front and a pretty bow with a jewel to finish it off.  Inside i put an extra piece of white on the kraft card to stamp a sentiment to send to my friend.  I know the perfect one that i am going to use for it.

And this is just a closeup of all those gorgeous swirls in the die.  Becca really knows how to design dies and i just love to make pretty things with them so it's a perfect match.  

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your holiday this week!!

Knowing you makes me happy

I am so glad you stopped today i have one of my favorite cards i made with Becca's new dies.  It is called Sweetheart Swirl and has the prettiest designs in the edges and makes up the prettiest card.  I just wanted to keep this simple so i diecut the blue papers for around the sentiment and popped them up with 3D foam so that you can really see the design.  And for the sentiment i used Versafine black on white and cut 2 circle medallions from the Graceful Doily Etched die set just to add a lacy pop of white and I also added one under the bow to give it something to anchor to.  

For the backround i used the Hemstitch Rectangle in white and then matted it with the same blue to give it a nice border around it.  And i think the sentiment pretty much says it all.  This is a very happy card to give to a very special someone.

Thank you again for stopping by and have a very wonderful day,

Thank you with flowers...

I am so happy that you had time to stop over today and see what i created with Becca's new dies.  I wanted to make something different this week today to share so i created a Z card that folds out from the center and i used the "Flourished Square" die on the front like you see above to create a frame.  I also used one of my favorite labels called the "Francesca Label" to stamp the sentiment on.

To make my card i did a sample first to get all the sizing right and the folds in the right place on the front of my card.  The i went ahead and cut pieces of a new Simple Stories paper that had lots of pretty colors and flowers in it for the inside and the front.  As you can see the label is only glued down on one side so that you can open it yet it looks really cute closed too.

It was so fun doing something a little bit more country and not so traditional like i normally do.  And the flowers i fussy cut from the paper to tuck in around the edges.  I added a little stickles to them but i think i should have kept it being a clear color to make it pop more.   But as always it's fun to look outside the box and try something new... this would be a great style for a wedding card or graduation too.

Thank you for stopping over and have a great day celebrating your dad today!

Baby Girl 12 months photo box

Hi everyone-- today and i am sharing a fun box i created for the first 12 months's of my Baby Girls pictures that i have saved.  This is a fun and easy way to save all those pictures you have and you can still have fun using all those papers that you have saved in your stash to do create it with.  Mine is done with the "Trim Organizer Box" and it's the perfect size for photos too and i love how all those tags have such a beautiful shape and make it that much cuter!

With this kit you get 12 tags like you see above and below so i used all my Echo Park Sweet Baby Girl papers and ephemera cards and tags to decorate each of them for the 12 months of the year.  Then inside i also added 5 1/2 inch square cards to add pictures and record all the special memories of that first year.  It's so fun to see all the amazing things your kids learn and do the first year of their lives with you and it's important to save them so when they grow up they can read about it and enjoy the memories that you cherished for them to read about.

I think i am going to go back and add more to my tags but here is just a simple version for you.

Aren't the prints in this paper line so cute... I can't wait to fill it up with pictures.

And here is just a card i did with the papers to go with it.  I was going to give it as a gift but i think i will use it for my daughter and either give it to her for her first daughter or the pictures i saved of her.

These boxes are really easy and fun to make so i hope you get a chance to stop in the GSLCuts store and see what is new and pick up a few for projects you need to make.  

Thanks so much for stopping by......Teresa

A Special Birthday Wish

It's my Saturday die day today and time for another idea using one of Becca Feeken's newest dies from the Romancing the Swirl Collection.  

Today i have another fun and easy card to share using a few of my new favorites that are not as swirly but together they make a really pretty and feminine card for a special someone.  I started with "Hemstitch Rectangles" for the base and used a few prints but I used them under the rectangle bases just to add a pop of design.  This way it's not too overpowering and you can still capture all that beautiful detail in the dies.  

And then i used the new "Curvy Labels Etched die" over the top and did 3 layers of a muted grey patterned paper set.  This gave it a real pretty 3D effect and showed off the dies rather nicely I think.  And i added 3 rows of 1/4 inch silk ribbon under the labels and then tied a pretty bow and added it to the bottom of the top label.  That tiny little swirl is from the smallest die in the Sweetheart Swirl Etched Die set.  It gives it just a pop of pretty without adding a flower to it!

And the stamp is from a Penny Black set and i think it goes really well with the swirls of the designs.
I stamped that in my favorite black Versafine ink.  And now it's ready to send off to a special someone.  Hope you liked my inspiration for the new dies today and be sure and check back next week for more fun ideas with the new dies.

Have a very wonderful day...... Teresa

Best Wishes Card

Hi ... I am so happy that you stopped by today to see what new things i have to share with Becca Feeken's newest die set called Romancing the Swirl!  I used 3 of her dies to create my card today and I am really happy with how they mixed together.  I used country yellows and blues out of my favorite Maja Design paper sets and added crisp white cardstock to cut the dies so that they would really stand out.

For my base i used "Hemstitch Squares" for 2 of the top layers and then on top of that i used a double cut of "Trefoil Crest" die set.  Then I cut out just the center fancy circle from the "Graceful Doily" die set to lay all of it on to the Hemstitch Square pieces.  It's beautiful to see how all those amazing swirls work so fabulously together like this.  And for the sentiment i stamped it in black Versafine and just clipped the edges to fit on the die.  And of course a few rhinestones to make it sparkle.

And to make it stand out more i added 3D foam squares between the layers like you see above.  With all that gorgeous detailing i don't want any of it to not stand up and be noticed.

Hope you all have a fun and crafty weekend!
