Snowflake Corner...

Happy Monday!
It's my day to share here on the Die-Versions Blog, and I thought that I would
showcase a couple of my favorite dies.  I'm amazed each time I create with these dies, at the easy removal of these delicate die cuts!

For this card, I used Die-Versions "Snowflake Corner" DVW-399, and Die-Versions "Peace on Earth" Sweet Wordlets DVSW-043.  Oops!  Looking at my photo, I just realized that I lost a bling on the right snowflake...better fix that before I mail this one!

Note that I used the actual die cut on the inside of the card, and the negative on the outside!

Thanks for stopping by!

Be sure to follow our Die-Versions Blog for daily inspiration with these wonderful dies!

Good Times

Happy Friday!! Lisa here to share a project with you featuring some fabulous Die-Versions dies :)

I do love fall, but summer is my favorite season, so I made this card to bring back some sweet summer memories :)

The focal point of the card is the fabulous Good Times Sweet Frames die. It was cut twice in the patterned paper and offset for a shadow effect. A Wee Petites This Way Arrow die was used on the top right to point out the To The Beach sign on the paper. Wee Petites Button dies were used in the enters of the flowers and the ribbon.

You can check out all of the dies HERE. And we would love to see your projects featuring Die-Versions dies on our Facebook page HERE.

Please come back Monday for more inspiration from the design team!! And be sure to mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 21st. The Die-Versions Design Team will be hosting a Think Pink Blog Hop to promote Breast Cancer Awareness. You can participate by linking your Think Pink could win a $25 gift certificate to shop at the Die-Versions store!! Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Flying Witch

Front, closed

I wanted to do something a little different today, so I created a floating-die card.  They are very easy to make and I love how the die spins in the center when the card is opened.  I added double adhesive tape to black cardstock and die cut the Wicked Witch twice.  Make sure one of the die cuts is reversed, so when you glue them together they will be facing the same way and the adhesive will be on the front and back of the glued together piece.  She is adhered to a piece of thread that is sandwiched between the patterned paper and the cardstock on the front panel.  I wanted the string to blend in, so I colored it with Pan Pastels to match my Pan Pastel colored moon, which is on the inside of the card.

Once the front and back pieces of the witch were adhered to the string, I exposed the adhesive on each side and covered it with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Night Sky Sparkle N Soft flocking.  Not only is she sparkly, but she feels good too.

For the inside, I added more patterned paper and my colored moon.  The sentiment was created using Die-Versions Metropolis font.  The letters and the "bats" were cut out of left over pieces from when I die cut the witches.  When I was looking at the die, the parentheses resembled bats to me, so that's what they became :-).   Orange Surprise glitter was added to the letters and Black Ice glitter was added to my bats.

Jar of Hearts and Hope

Hello Die-Versions Fans,

I am here today with another card for Breast Cancer Awareness month and to ask you to please join us on our Think Pink Blog Hop on October 21st!!  First here is my card for today:

For this A2 card I started with kraft cardstock for the base of the card.  Next I cut out the Whispers Fence Background die in brown paper and added that to the card.  Next I cut out the Whispers Bug Jar die twice, once in vellum and once in pink paper.  I punched some light and dark pink hearts and attached them to the pink jar, then I put the vellum jar on top, I also added a bit of pink patterned paper to the lid of the jar.  Before attaching the jar of hearts and hope to the card I tied a piece of Bakers Twine around the jar and then attached it to the card.  Next I stamped Hope using the Verve Pink Power stamp set in pink ink on a white tag and added that to the card.  Then I die cut out the Sweet Phrases Just For You  die twice in light and dark pink and pieced it together and then added that to the card.  Now it is ready to send to Fighting Pretty to send out to a Breast cancer patient.

Now I would like to give you some details on our Blog Hop on October 21st!  The Die-Versions Diva's are going to be making cards in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month and we will be donating them to Fighting Pretty.  Fight Pretty's mission is to help women feel strong and beautiful during and after cancer treatment.  We would love it if you would join us in making a card or two or more for this great cause.  We will have a linky on our DV Blog that day and you can link up your cards until Tuesday, October 28th.  The winner will be announced on Wednesday, October 29th on our DV Blog and she will receive a $25.00 gift card prize to be used at  Die-Versions on-line store.  The winning card will be picked by the DV Design Team and if you would like to donate your card or cards to this wonderful cause just e-mail Lori at to get the address of where to send your card.  I do hope you will join us on October 21st!! We need to send out loads of hope to these women!!

Love you - and a lot of dies too

Hello my dear crafty friends!
This is Irit here today with my new style, fancy, shabby card.

Lately I try to make my cards more layered and more shabby. Maybe this is just a temporary state of mind, but maybe I just move to some other  direction with my card making. Anyway, this is what I  made for this post:  multi layered card with a lot of paper and 4 different die used with totally different techniques.

The background Blocks  die was  covered with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with  olive green embossing powder.(Also with all those layers you can see it only here and there).

I added two pieces of  Lacy Dots just inked around in the middle of the card.

The Butterfly Flourish dies was cut from a very thick cardstock. Then I colored it with distress markers  and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. It gives the die this distressed, but yet shiny effect.
The sentiment was die cut from Complements Everyday  die and painted with the same markers, but then I covered it with a layer of Glossy Accents and connected to the card with a thin line of the glaze.

I hope that you do like my shabby card. See you  soon!

You can check out all of the dies HERE. And we would love to see your projects featuring Die-Versions dies on our Facebook page HERE.
