Spectacular Skies with Just Dies!

Hi, it’s Nancy hoping to inspire you today! I have always wanted to make a card with just dies. I have come close, but I always wind up stamping the sentiment. So for our Spectacular Skies challenge I made a fun Foursquare Backrop: Portrait design with cute little sky vignettes!

I die cut almost all the pieces from Bristol Smooth cardstock and used Copic markers to add color. Just the palm tree trunk (from Tropical Backdrop) is die cut from Woodgrain cardstock and the cloud from white cardstock. The cloud, moon and sun are included in the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait die set. The little rainbow is from Shadow Box Card Rainbow Add-on and the raindrops are the Rainy Backdrop!

I used a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen to add the “stars” to the moon vignette and I used silver glitter cardstock behind the raindrops. And I used Sending Hugs Line Border for the win as the die cut sentiment! Yay!

Our Spectacular Skies challenge will be open until Sunday May 3 at 11:59PM ET. The gallery is filling with the most wonderful creativity. We can’t wait to see what you will share!


Thanks for stopping by! Happy crafting!

A Cute Valentine with Joyce!

Joyce joins us on the blog today to share this adorable sending hugs Valentine card! This card is beautiful inspiration for our Color Inspiration Mood Board challenge!

Joyce used Distress inks to watercolor the stripes on the beautiful background. Then she splattered gold paint to add interest!

Our I Love You(calyptus) koala and the little bird from Love Letters look so cute as they perch on the Sending Hugs Line Border! To bring in even more of the gold color, Joyce die cut the sentiment border from gold glitter cardstock!

To finish this super sweet card, Joyce scattered some Hearts die cuts, placing one with each of the critters!

Thank you so much for sharing this delightfully sweet card with us today, Joyce!
