Birthday Fun with Die-namites

This week over on the Die-namites blog we are sharing creations made with the fabulous birthday dies!!!!  There are some super cute projects that the design team will be sharing with you this upcoming week, so make sure you stop by the blog everyday!!

I created these two projects for the birthday hop....a birthday card and a gift tag.  

The first die I used was the Birthday Gift die.

And the second die was the Hanging Presents die.

So my first project, of course everyone will need a birthday card this year to give to someone right.  The hanging presents are super cute in the corners of the card.  I popped them up with a foam pop dot.

Up next is a git tag.  You can tie this on any gift bag to dress it up!  I love the way the Birthday Gift looks on this tag.

Supplies Used:
Graphic 45 - Time To Celebrate
Xyron - Foam squares and mega runner

Thanks so much for stopping by today, make sure you stop by the Die-namites blog and check out all of the amazing creations from the design team.

A Card A Month

Hey there everyone thanks for stopping by today.  As the holidays have come to an end and the decorations come down I must admit i'm already thinking of gifts for next year!!  I know i'm not crazy and some of you are thinking of that also, you may have even grabbed some good deals with all of the after Christmas sales!

One thing i'm creating for a handmade gift for next year is a set of cards.  Cards for all occasions!  I want to make one or two cards a month just for this gift and then put them in a nice box for next year.  I figured there is no better time to start then first thing in the new year.  I'm going to share my first card creation for my gift box with you today.

Lets start with the amazing Die-namite die that I used to create this one.  I love adding things to the corners of cards so I used the Scrolly Corner on this one.

I created this card using the Graphic 45 collection Time To Celebrate.  I thought everyone needs a little Congratulations card to send out for something during the year!!

You can see I tied a little ribbon on the left side, which left the right side of the card a little plain....just the perfect spot to add the Scrolly Corner to.  I added a little Walnut Stain distress ink to it (not to much), then ran it through my Xyron 510 and placed it on the card.

Hopefully after I create these cards and box them up I will still want to give them away!!!

Supplies Used:
Die-namites - Scrolly Corner
Graphic 45 - Time To Celebrate
May Arts - Green ribbon
Xyron - Mega Runner, foam squares, 510

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.  I hope this inspires you to create more handmade cards this year!
