A Card and Frame Made From Die Cuts

Today I have two quick projects that I made with die cuts. I designed the die cuts in Adobe Illustrator and cut them with my Cricut. The first one is a 6x6 inch card featuring a scalloped rectangle shape. I started with olive cardstock, then added a glittery flower paper strip. Then added a butterfly sticker and rub-on sentiment to the scalloped die cut. I finished it off with clear dots of clear glitter glue on the corners.

My second project is a mat I made for a 5x7" acrylic photo frame. I started with a 5x7" piece of flowered paper and a 4x6" photo. then I adhered a scalloped rectangle frame die cut on top with repositionable adhesive. That way I can take it apart if want to after displaying it, or it can just go right on a scrapbook page. I finished it off with some glittered flower stickers.  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies used: Card: cardstock and paper by DCWV, die cut by Blissmade Designs,

A Bright Happy Birthday Card

I'd like to share one of my newest creations with you! It is a bright Happy Birthday card, which is 6x6 inches in size. I used a lime/olive cardstock  for the card base. Then I adhered a colorful patterned paper strip. The die cut is one of my designs, which I call a bracket frame. I cut it out with my Cricut die cutting machine using Make The Cut Software. I added fabric and paper flowers to the center of the die cut, the yellow flower came with a brad. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is a sticker. I finished it off with a little bling with two yellow rhinestones.

Supplies used: Cardstock is by DCWV, paper is Ki Memories,
pink flower is by Imaginisce, Yellow flower is Recollections,
die cut by Blissmade Designs, sticker is by DCWV, rhinestones: unknown

All You Need Is LOVE Canvas Wall Art

"All you need is love" is one of my favorite love or Valentine quotes. It comes from the title of a Beatles song, which I also love. I took the quote and made it into a Canvas Wall Art.

The canvas is 8x8 inches from Michaels. The title was made with alphabet stickers and chipboard letters, which I painted and speckled. There is also a beautiful laser cut wood heart shape that has been inked and stamped with word images. The background was made with three strips of inked paper, the background was also inked. I used Tim Holtz's Distress Inks and the Ink Blending Tool by Ranger to do this. The whole canvas was coated with a matte sealer.

Here is a close-up view of the painting and inking.

These canvas wall art pieces look great on the wall, on a plate stand, or leaning back on a shelf. Hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day!
