Hello Friends -
This is my last week as a guest designer at Bah! Humbug! Challenges. I am very sad to leave the lovely ladies of the manor but I hope you will join in some of their challenges. It is a wonderful way to get ready for the holidays without trying to get all of your cards done at the last minute.
Today's challenge is die cuts. I must admit, this one was tough because the possibilities seemed endless. I could cut with my cuttlebug. I could cut with my electronic cutter. What to do? What to do?
So, I decided to do one of each (I was shooting for two but it just didn't happen). The first one is an ornament shape card. I made it using a Lettering Delights simple shape and Sure Cuts a Lot. I'm disappointed in the way the photo came out. In person it is all sparkly and fun.
Then I made this simple shaped card using my cuttlebug and a round Spellbinders die. I think I learned this technique on BBTB2. To make the base you fold your cardstock in half and then place it in the die just a little bit off. This way it doesn't cut through the top of the card. Then I used the next smaller die to cut out the cute Tiddly Inks image. I can't find him in the Tiddly Inks store right now but I'm certain he is there somewhere.
Finally, I made this side step card. I used the tutorial at Split Coast Stamper. I must say, whenever I'm looking for a tutorial on how to make a card, I find they are likely to have it and all of their tutorials have been easy to follow. I used my electronic cutter to make this card. All of the images are from Cricut carts, Child's Year, Celebrations and Joy of the Seasons.
I hope you like the die cut cards and a huge thank you to the ladies of the manor.
