First up is DT member Tina Guigui.

I am sharing with you my Happy Birthday card. I used a cardstock with the "Decor Circles" embossing folder. I sanded it down to get a distressed look.


I used the "Small Ivy" die from Die-Namites.



The papers are from MME 6x6 paper pads - Record It! The flowers and leaves are from I Am Roses. I used foam adhesives for the diecut and a hotgun for all the flowers and leaves. TFL!

Next, we have DT member Erin Reed.

I wanted to create a fun funky card for my husband this Father's Day.  I went for rich color in blue, red, and rust, and blended them with kraft and white cardstock and trims to really let the rustic, grungy, and masculine feel of the card show.


Here is a quick video of how I made this mixed media card.


I used the wonderful products from Die~namites Dies
Bare Branch
Spring Doily

and Craftwell embossing folder.

Welcome, it is Pam today sharing with you my "Congratulations" Card that I made for a sweet friend daughter for graduation. Can you believe it is graduation? Time sure does fly bye, doesn't it!!!
I began my card by first covering a card base with black card stock....

Place the larger Alpha Embossed piece to the top of black card stock and sanded lightly. Add smaller Alpha Embossed piece to black card stock, set to one side.
Die cut one Party Banner (DN-1277) from black card stock....
then cut several times using the pattern paper from the Bella Rouge Collection. Add to the top of the Party Banner (DN-1277) using your Xyron X Sticker Maker.
 Stamp sentiment and add your border to the bottom of the card.
Cut one of the Heart Leaves Swirl (DN-1194) from the Bella Rouge Paper Collection. Add to top of border along with a pretty flower.

Day 3 of the Die-Namites Dies and Craftwell Blog Hop

We are soo excited for this weeks match-up

Welcome to Day Three of our Blog Hop.

We have an AWESOME prize package up for grabs!


Here are the Rules:
* One comment per person ~ per day ~blog post

to be in the running for the giveaway.
*This must be done on BOTH the 
Craftwell & Die-Namites Blog, so no skipping! ;)
*winner will be chosen randomly

Welcome to Day Three....
Lynne Forsythe here to share my
Die~Namites Dies and Craftwell creations.


I began my creative process by cutting (4) 4" x 6" pieces of
 Ivory Cardstock and embossed them with
4 different Craftwell Embossing Folders.


I then cut the embossed pieces of paper into 1.5"x1.5" squares.


I applied Multi Medium to the Natural Canvas
and adhered the (4) different embossed squares.

I then painted on a layer of
Perfect Paints ~ Perfect Glaze Medium
over the entire canvas and set it aside to dry.

I chose a piece of Kraft Cardstock and


I spritzed one Flowering Tree with
Glimmer Mist and painted the "flowers"
On the second die cut, I painted the "flowers"
cut them out individually and adhered them to the "tree"
accenting with rhinestones.


Now that my canvas is dry, I mixed up a batch
of Bright Gold Paint and Perfect Glaze Medium.
I applied it all over the canvas face,
let it dry for a moment, then wiped off
with a damp baby wipe.
I LOVE THIS LOOK!
I loosely adhered the Flowering Tree diecut to the canvas,
wrapped the edges of the canvas with yarn
and then added verbage. 


As I had LOTS of embossed squares left over,
I decided to create a matching card to go
along with my "mini" canvas.
(I created my card background the same
way I created my canvas background.)


I diecut four Tall Flower Branch,
which I think looks alot like Foxglove,
from Kraft Cardstock.

I took 2 Tall Flower Branch diecuts
flipping one over,
and painted both with the Bright Gold paint.

I took the other 2 Tall Flower Branch, flipping one over,
and painted my flowers with various Perfect Paints.
I layered and popped the diecut images for dimension.

Here is a closeup of my card.


I hope you are enjoying the
Die~Namites Dies & Craftwell Blog Hop....
and my Gift for a Grad

DIE-NAMITES AND CRAFTWELL USA BLOG HOP DAY 2 with Peggy Lee

We are soo excited for this weeks match-up

**************************
Welcome to our blog hop with Craftwell & Die-Namites!
It's Peggy Lee here to share with you a couple of little pretties, I created
with the amazing Teresa Collins embossing folders by Craftwell. Adorning my pretties along with the fabulous Die-Namites Dies what a beautiful combination of textures and flair!
I created a "Congratulation Card" with a paper gift bag, you could put a card, gift card, photos and gift along with your card to created a heartfelt gift that keeps on giving.


Butterfly Frame

Congratulation Card
I used Teresa Collins "Houndstooth" embossing folder by Craftwell on the background of the black card stock...layered the Teresa Collins "Vintage Finds" paper collection I had in my stash.. I die cut out the "Butterfly Frame" Die-Namites Die from black, cream and one Vintage Finds paper and popped the layers up to give depth to the die cut (it's great using die cuts to make your own embellishments). 


Cool technique I took one of the die cut centers out and embossed the Teresa Collins "Decor Circles" by Craftwell to create a quilted look to the top layer of  frame.
I took another die cut of the Die-Namites Butterfly Frame and cut the butterflies out.
I popped them up as well to give more depth and they look like they porched 
on the frame...you can get alot of use out of your Die-Namites dies this way.


Paper Gift Bag
I started with a plain white glossen bag I ran it through with the Teresa Collins embossing folder by Craftwell...I love how it gives the paper bag a quilted pattern...I cut another card base to put inside the paper bag (you can add a card, gift card, cash, little treats, etc).




Rosy Rose

Here is a photo of all the embossing folders and paper collection and dies I used.
I am loving the black, cream, yellow tones!



I created a banner with the papers, added a piece of lace and sequin trim. I die cut out a black and cream "Rosy Rose" Die-Namites die. I just used a tiny clothespin to hold
on these yummy layers together. (tip-the receiver can now use this in a scrapbook layout, mini album or place in a frame to remember their special occasions).


I am so happy you stopped by today to see my paper crafting creations using the Teresa Collins Embossing Folders by Craftwell and Die-Namites Dies. Now it's your turn to pick up some of these amazing products and grab a few scrap booking supplies from your stash and create a little pretty!
Hope you are enjoying the blog hop, be sure to stop in tomorrow for another
beautiful creation from one of my design teamies will be sharing. I can't wait to see-paper crafting is so much fun!
