Think Pink!!


Hello Die-Version Fans,

Happy October!!  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in honor of that I have made a card for a good friend of mine who battled with breast cancer several years ago....so this is for you Marieanne!!



For this 5 X 7 inch card I started with a bright pink cardstock for the base of the card.  Next I added a piece of light pink tiny pattered paper after I inked the edges with hot pink ink.  Next I cut out the Die-Versions Whispers Big Butterfly  twice, once in green and once in pink and I pieced them together.  Next I took several bottles of stickles that a sweet friend sent to me to add some glitter to the butterfly and the branch.  Next I took the "think pink" stamp and inked with hot pink ink, stamped it and then used some clear embossing powder to make it stand out more.  Lastly I added the three pink brads to the bottom of the card.  So what do you think?  Will my close friend like this card??  And lucky for all of you that the Whispers Big Butterfly happens to be on sale now so you can pick it up for a great price and surprise your friends who are breast cancer survivors too!!

I hope you will come back to our blog everyday for more inspiration from our amazing Design Team!!  We ladies are going PINK sometime this month and I wouldn't want you to miss anythng!!  Don't forget to share with us your creations on our DV Facebook page. We love to see what everyone creates!!

Layers all over with Die- Versions

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here again and today I am going to show you a card with 10 layers, but still thin and delicate (as much as it can be).


This is a fun , maybe even masculine card, made with a lots of layers and I mean A LOT!
I counted like 10 layers here, and still this card is not very bulky (thanks to not adding flowers... LOL)
I used Marion Smith papers only and some cardstock for my die cuts.


5 Die Versions dies were used on this  card:
Funky Octagons background
Let's celebrate today Sweet Spot
Torn edge spiral Whispers border die
Love Sweet frame
Heart Burst Whispers die
All dies were die cut from   thick cardstock and inked with distress inks. The sentiment die was also heat embossed with black embossing powder.
I added a single metal pin with a butterfly , some glitter clear glue and two small pieces of washi tape (just to connect the layers in the more secure way)

Using Die- Versions dies for Mixed Media scrapbooking is easy

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second September post here .

This time I am going to share my new Mixed Media scrapbooking page made with not one, not two, but 4 Die- versions dies and they just fit this layout as a glove on your hand.



I made waves imitation with Ovals Background die and used parts of my cuts inside the hand cut circles over the page. Then I added some micro beads inside the die cut pieces to make my so called " sand".


The Great Day sweet spot was a sub- title of this page and was added on the lower left corner cut from patterned paper again.


The huge  Old Globe  -East die was died cut from patterned paper and glued over another patterned paper piece. But then I heat embossed part of it, inked it and added some  white shades over the piece and it looks like a real globe with all those colors and a texture.

The last one, but not the least, is this Lace Dots  border added randomly on the top and the bottom of this page just to connect the whole page together and to add some green color to this almost monochromatic layout.
I hope you like my scrapbooking page and understand that Die- Versions die are not just for card makers! No way! Any scrapbooker or altered artist can use them in a lot of ways and to maximize the value of the dies.

Gingerbread Wishes


Hello Die-Versions Fans,

How are you on this Tuesday, the first day of Fall??  Did you go to the Die-Versions + Great Impressions Blog Hop yesterday??  If you missed it ~ make sure you check it out!  The 2 Design Teams did an AWESOME job on their projects!!

Now I don't know about you, but for me it isn't Christmas with out some Gingerbread!!  Gingerbread just screams Christmas to me so today I am going to share with you my card that I made with the absolutely adorable Gingerbread House die!!


I just LOVE this die so much!!  But then again, why wouldn't I since I love anything Gingerbread!!  For this A2 card I started with a light blue cardstock for the base, next I added a piece of polka dot paper.  All the pieces for the Gingerbread house and the candy are included in this die.  So first I cut out the brown paper for the base of the house and chimney.  Next I cut the windows and trim out with cinnamon paper.  I cut some blue paper for the windows, and I cut out the icing or snow with white paper.  I cut out all the candy pieces in white paper and colored them with my Copic Markers.  The hearts over the door and windows I cut out with two different shades of pink paper.  For the senitment I cut out the Sweet Wordlets "Tis The Season" in green paper and attached that to the card.  So what do you think?  Does it scream Christmas to you too??  Don't you just want to start taking all your gingerbread ornaments out and decorate?  I sure do!!

Well I hope I have inspired you to create something yummy today!  Be sure to stop by the Die-Versions Blog often for new project ideas!  And make sure to share with us on our Die-Versions Facebook page any of your projects that you make using your DV dies!  We love to see what everyone creates!!
