Happy Monday everyone! Who’s ready for a fun new Challenge? This week’s it’s all about Die Cuts. There are so many great stand alone dies on the market now and I love that most stamps have coordinating dies. So, let’s dig into our stash and use some of those die cuts and create a fun project!

Hi everyone it’s Holly here today with a fun project using Lots and Lots of Die cuts!!

All the stamps and dies I’m using today are from My Favorite Things. I started by creating a frame using the Whimsical Woodgrain background stamp from MFT and some Doe Ink from Lawn Fawn on a piece of Kraft card stock. Then I die cut the frame using the Blueprints #15 & #29. Then I die cut an additional piece of White using the smaller rectangle from Blueprints #29. I added the frame to a top folding White A2 size card base with some liquid glue and then I trimmed out the top portion of the card base showing through the frame with a craft knife.

Then I stamped the images from the Adorable Hog Heaven set from MFT onto some Neenah Solar White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with Copics: E30, E34, E44, E47, R0000. R00, R01, R02, YG17 & G07. I die cut the images using the coordinating dies. Using the smaller of the stitched rectangles from the Frame I created, I die cut a  piece of White card stock and added some Distress Inks in Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn to create the grass. Then I added the images to the card front and then on the reverse side making sure they lined up.

I die cut a second panel from the smallest stitched rectangle and added some Distress Inks in Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass. Then I die cut some Puffy Clouds from MFT and added the sentiment from Hog Heaven. This set is the Cutest!!!

Check out the video for more details on how I created this card.

Thanks for stopping by today!
