CAS Thank You Card with New Release Dies

Welcome to the Universally Crafty Die-Versions Blog! Karen here again and today I am sharing a Thank You card featuring Die-Version’s new Whispers Swan and Curly Word Thanks found here on the Die-Version’s New Release Page.  These new dies are so lovely it is easy to make CAS (Clean and Simple) cards for special friends. I simply die cut the curly thanks out of a pretty patterned paper and the swan out of a white scrap. I layered the swan onto the same patterned paper and attached both to a black A2 card base.

Make A Wish

(Click on the photo to enlarge)

There are so many things you can create with the new Stitched Nesting Stars dies.  As I usually do when I get a new die, I cut the shapes out from scraps of cardstock to get a better feel for what I want to create with them.  As I was tossing these around my desk, they sort of overlapped and it sparked an idea of creating a star-filled night sky.

A few years ago, I had seen a demo of painting with embossing powders and it stuck with me.  That's what I decided I wanted to try for this project.  It's definitely a trial and error type of technique - you just keep adding embossing powders and playing with it until you're happy with the results.  For this background, I used Ranger embossing powders (Turquoise and Blue Glass).

I started out by covering the cardstock with the lighter Turquoise embossing powder.  Then I began sprinkling the Blue Glass on top and heating it from underneath so that the powder wouldn't blow away.  I kept adding a little of one and then the other until I thought it looked like a night sky.


I also used a different medium on each of the stars for various sparkle.  The largest star was heat embossed using Stampendous Star Dust embossing powder.  The medium solid star was heat embossed with Clear embossing powder and the small solid star was heat embossed with Opaline embossing powder.  Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers added the additional bling to the open star.

My sentiment is a Sweet Wordlet and was also covered with the Sparkle markers.  The black card base represents deep, deep space and Nuvo Glitter Drops by Tonic Studios (Midnight Sky) give it the added shimmer and sparkle. :-)

Hi crafty friends!
Alicja here today and I would like to share my two very simple cards with curly words with you :)
All you need to do to make cards like this is: scrapbooking papers, some flowers, gems, chipboards and die of course.
I used two very nice dies from the new release: hello and hugs. 
I cut this words from cardstock papers.
My cards look like this:

Bunny Hugs Card


Welcome to the Universally Crafty Die-Versions Blog! Karen here again and today I am sharing a bunny hugs card featuring Die-Version’s new Whispers Bunny and Curly Word Hugs found here on the Die-Version’s New Release Page.  I started this CAS (clean and simple) card by die cutting the Curly Word Hugs out of a white scrap and also out of the blue checked card front. I replaced all the pieces back in the blue checked piece (using a technique called inlaid die-cutting.) I die cut the cute bunny and decided to keep the pieces in the bunny. I attached him to the card with pop dots to raise.
