White Peacock

Hello Die-Versions Fans,

Lori here today with a card that I made with two Die-Versions dies ~ the Oriental Screen die and the Peacock (which is not in stock right now).  For this 5 1/2 by 6 1/2 inch card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I cut out the Whispers Oriental Screen die with black paper and glued that onto the small print pink paper.  Then I cut out the Whispers Peacock die with white paper and glued that onto the screen.  Then I glued all of that onto the bigger print pink paper and then onto the card.  We have a rescue zoo nearby to where we live and they have a couple of white peacocks and they are so beautiful ~ so this card is made in honor of the Popcorn Park Zoo White Peacocks!!

Be sure to stop by the Die-Versions Blog often to see how the Design Team is creating with these wonderful dies!  Please share with us on the Die-Versions Facebook page what you create!  We love seeing everyones projects ~ sometimes we even case your ideas!!

Baby Icons

Hey everyone!  Anne here and today I'm sharing a baby card using some of the sweet new Baby Icons die set (there are a total of nine dies in this set) as well as the new Elegant Border die.

The design of this card has a little treat box on top of an A2 sized card and was shown to me by my friend Ann.  She doesn't have a blog, but she freely shares her ideas 😃.  To create the box, I used Graphic 45 papers and the We R Memory Keepers Gift Box Board.  (I used the 1.75" x 1.75" box size.)

Each of the elements were die cut from Graphic 45 papers and accented with Distress Ink (Vintage Photo).

To the left is a close up of the butterfly and the Elegant Border.  Waterscape glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle accents his wings.

The rattle was accented with Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers and I used the de-bossed side of the baby feet because I liked that pattern better.  The embossed side really shows the little popcorn toes 😁.

The binky and baby bottle was die cut twice - once from the patterned cardstock and once from some really heavy plain cardstock for extra stability.  I added a 3D pop dot to hold the binky in place on top of the box and covered the remaining exposed adhesive with more Waterscape glitter.

The extra layer of cardstock on the baby bottle gives it extra dimension on the side of the box.  Both pieces were accented with Copic markers and Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers.

Be sure to come back and visit the Die-Version blog often to see the wonderful creations of the rest of the team.

On a final note, I'm really sad to say this will be my last posting for Die-Versions.  I have been on the team since it's inception in 2012 and I have enjoyed every minute of it!  Although I will no longer be on the team, you will still see lots of DV dies on my future projects 😁.

Spring Egg

Hello crafty friends,

I started playing with my Easter theme stamps and dies last weekend.  Here's the first card I made

I wanted a big element on the front of my card, so I reached for the Spring Egg die. It's a large, very lacy and very petty die.  I die cut the Spring Egg out of thick watercolor paper and using a small ink cube gave it color.  I covered the die cut with clear wink of stella and glued it to my card front. A stamped sentiment banner, a wood butterfly covered in the same ink and some enamel dots finished my card.   Here's a close up picture of the egg... I wish you could see how glittery the egg turned out.

Thanks for stopping bye today, leave me some feedback or links to your projects using some of our great dies.  Don't forget to use the code mary15 for 15% off your order (not valid with sales or discounts) when shopping at Die-Versions.

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a card that I made using the Lotus Blossom Die Cut to create a 3D Flower.Take a look at my card:


Creating this card was very fun and easy. 
I simply took a piece of Anchors Aweigh 100, a Quick Quotes decorated paper, and secured it to the Heart and Flowers Stencil Girl using masking tape. 
I played around with the paper and the stencil to have the flowers in the position that I wanted.


Then with Clarity Brushes I applied the PowderPuff Chalk Ink until I had the perfect color mix for the flowers. 


The sentiment is a combination of words included on the stamp set Super Scrip 2 from Altenew that I stamped using PowderPuff Mahogany. To obtain a darker color on this, I re-stamped several times using the MISTI tool. 

To add the great and delicate touch to my card, I decorated the left corner with a 3D flower that I created using two Lotus Blossom die cuts that I cut from decorated paper. I pasted only the center of the flowers using On Point Glue and then I pasted on the corner of the card.


 I decorated the center of the lotus with a flower that I made using White Makin's Clay that I sponged and colored with PowderPuff Buttercup.


Thank you for stopping by and see you soon with other ideas to use your die cuts.

Happy Sunday!! Lisa here to share a couple of Easter cards with you today using several Die-Versions dies.

Masculine cards with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second February Die Versions inspiration.
 As out post service is one of the " best", I didn't yet got my new release die, so those card were made with oldies. but goodies and in my personal opinion- the best of the best possible masculine Die Versions dies.
So both cards are for Father's day  and were made with the very same paper collection from UK company named Scrapberry's.
On the first card I use a few dies.
The background was made with Morocco background die.
 Then I die cut the  Stitched nested stars and glued one over another.
The sentiment was made with two Nested stitched circles.

On this card the background was made with Gents background-  right now out of stock, but I really hope will be back in the shop soon.
The main embellishment are the Feathers die cuts that were heat embossed and added on the card.
And again the sentiment was stamped over the Nested stitched circles.

I hope you got some masculine inspiration and see you again soon!
Hope with the new released dies inspiration.
