Hello everyone.  I have always loved butterflies so this time I decided to do use just gorgeous butterfly dies and do some partial dies cuts. The paper is from My Mind Eye Stash that I have

The first step is do a partial cut of the butterfly on the paper. You will need to do that twice for each side. Then you use another color and cut the die to layer under the partial cuts. The die is Die-Versions Whispers Butterfly Kisses.  I then added some of the dies from Trimcraft-Traditional Sentiments Dies

Kraftin Kimmie Card

I am so one who loves sketch challenges so when I was inspired by Kraftin Kimmie's last sketch, figured it was time to get out some of lovely stamps and create this card. As usual, I colored up the image with my Copics and decided to try to create a sequin style dress.  The paper is from MME stash I have and then added some pearls

Welcome back everyone. It is me, Olivia. To all those in the USA, Happy Memorial Day weekend. Hope it turns out to be a lovely one for you. 
My project for today is both for inspiration with a bit of steps on how to do it. I decided to try a new technique and make a shaker card. I have only done one or two but learned a new trick of using foam to pop up the die.
The first step is to cut the die on the pattern paper from this fantastic die by Die-Version Whispers Hot Air Balloon Birthday.  Then I ran the foam and die to cut out a thick piece. I used some thin plastic from my stash and did an outline of the top part of the balloon die and cut it to shape. I glued to plastic to the pattern paper and glued to foam to the cardstock and put the sparkles in before I glued the plastic/patterned die to the foam piece.  I added some pearls for accents and used the birthday sentiment die that is part of this set as well. I really like that the sentiment comes with it but cuts separately so allows you to option to not use it for other projects.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and be sure to check out all the fantastic dies available at the Dies R Us Store; and do not forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog! A new challenge is offered on the 1st and 15th of each month with a Gift Certificate to one winner

DiesRUs Birthday CAS style

Today, I have decided to showcase some of the stencils and dies that DiesRUs has available.  As I am always in need of birthday cards, I used one of those fun stamp images I have from Some Odd Girl.

The first step was to use my Distress Inks and sponge the stencil on the paper. This stencil is from the fantastic collection available under Memory Box called-Birthday. I used my stamped my image and colored it with my Copics.  I paired it with Die-Mensions-Birthday Topper that served as a great sentiment.

Hope you enjoyed this project and I will be back soon!
