Easter Basket


Easter is right around the corner and I thought I'd use the new Straw Basket from Die-Versions to show what our Easter baskets look like before the Easter Bunny comes to fill them :-).

The "straw" (Pine Grove tinsel glitter) is already there, just waiting to have lots of candy and goodies pilled on top.  My basket was die cut from fun foam and I colored the foam with Copics.  The frame is covered with Diamond Dust glitter, which is a chunky glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

The border is the DV Butterfly Garden border.  I die cut the butterflies from this several times to have them fluttering around.  Added a strip of ribbon and now my basket is all ready for the Easter Bunny to visit!

Celebrate a great day layout with Irit


Hello my dear crafty friends!
 Irit is here and I welcome you  to my layout post today.
This is a very springy layout I made with a photo of my two darling grand children and I  added a lot of interest with 4 of Die- Versions dies.
The first one is this fantastic Funky octagons background that I die cut from patterned paper and stacked under the photo to make my  photo matting.
The second is the main title one and I use Celebrate cut out die to make this two dies title. My lovely babies are celebrating our Jewish Holiday called Shavuot and it's all about nature, flowers and  a tribute to late Spring.
Then I added a part of A great day die cut - without the circle- to make this full layout title.




The last die used is  this  Scrolly bow I added under the photo and embellished with stickers over it.

I hope you liked my layout and the way I used my old, but beloved dies to make this page complete.

Mushroom Shaker


Shaker cards are still the rage, so I thought this new Mushroom set from Die-Versions would be the perfect focal point for my shaker card.

After the mushrooms were die cut, they were colored with Copic markers and then I heat embossed the tops with Sparkle embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The Hello was die cut using the DV Hello Express Edge out of the same patterned paper as my background.

My circle frame was cut from sticker paper and I added Lapis Lazuli glitter by Martha Stewart.  The inside of the shaker was filled with stars, sequins, and more glitter.

All the elements came together quickly to create a fun interactive card.

Feliz Cumpleanos Papi

Hello crafty friends,

Today is my father's 79th birthday and I made him a super cute card using the new Frog In The Pond die.

This new die is so easy (and cute) to work with.  I beef'ed (is that even a word?)  him up by die cutting a few extra lily pads (the bottom of the die) and arranging them on the card so that Mr Frog had a bigger area to sit on.  I also die cut a few extra flowers and tucked them around him for more visual interest.

I used the Express Edges Spanish Felicidades die on the right side of the card. I basically die cut the Felicidades right into the card's front panel, which I later covered with wood grain pattern paper for a masculine/nature feel.  

For my photo, I added the following birthday related die cuts to a chalkboard stand I got at Hobby Lobby: the Whispers Big Balloon die, the Spanish Feliz Cumpleanos die and the Spray Paint Font die.

I love how my card turned out and I can't wait to give it to my Dad later today.  Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the first weekend of Spring. Until next time...
