Thinking of You Dragonfly Card

May 19, 2017

 

Hey Everyone! It’s Katelyn here, sharing with you a beautiful Thinking of You Dragonfly Card. The starting point for my card was the new ModaScrap Dragonfly die, and then by combining different die cut images my card just evolved from there. To create my card, I used a variety of dies from ModaScrap and Els van de Burgt Studio as well as a stamp from Joset Designs. Let me show you how to make it.

A Bouquet of Roses from Susan's Garden by Anita

Hello to all!

This is Anita here and I have brought fresh roses from Susan’s Garden for all of you. Roses are one of my favourite flowers and I love making them in various colours and shaping them in many ways. Each rose looks different, each is so beautiful.

Susan’s Garden has an entire collection of dies with which to create amazing realistic flowers and you can check them all out here.

I created a lace bouquet wrap using the new ModaScrap Romantic Corner die set and arranged the roses and leaves in it.

Sewing with Die Cuts – Heart Ornament Sachets

Sewing with Die Cuts - Heart Ornament Sachets

by Joan Frantzen

Happy Mother’s Day! And thanks for the opportunity to be a Guest Designer again on this blog. To honor all the moms, grandmothers, sisters, and daughters out there, I offer another idea for using dies with fabric. This one features new heart dies used to cut various sized hearts that can serve as appliqués or patterns (another quilter’s trick!). Simply fill them with fiberfill as ornaments with a pop of spring color, or include lavender or potpourri inside for a scented sachet. They’re great “thinking of you” gifts for all the special women in your life!

A Way With Words

Remember: Shimmer Sheetz-covered Jumbo Clothespin

Remember: Shimmer Sheetz-Covered Jumbo Clothespin

By Judi Kauffman

I’m revisiting one of my favorite projects: Shimmer Sheetz-covered Jumbo Clothespins. (shown: 6” tall) They stand upright and the clip at the top is endlessly useful. This time the clothespins are featuring the word ‘remember’ cut with one of Suzanne Cannon’s wonderful A Way With Words dies. 

What will you want to remember? How will you decorate and enjoy a decorated jumbo clothespin? 

Clothespins make great place cards at a party, a favor that can go home with each guest. (With the word ‘remember’ these are ideal for a retirement or farewell party!) They’re terrific teacher gifts, and serve well all around the house.

Near the door, the clothespin can hold tickets to a play or a to-do list that can’t be left behind. Or it can welcome a guest with a special greeting card.

On a desk or mantel, it can be used to display a memorable photo like the one of my dad and me. Or put it on the kitchen table where it can hold a secret message for that special someone – two mini playing cards: The 2 of hearts, symbolic of the relationship, and a second card with a love note hidden from view!

DIY Foam Stamp Background Cards

May 12, 2017

Hello everyone,

It´s Sanna here, and it´s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. Today I decided to share a DIY foam stamp idea with you. Sometimes when you look at a die you wish there would be a stamp like that available too. That is what I thought when I saw the new ModaScrap dies! They can be used to create gorgeous stamps and I´d like to show you how I made some DIY foam stamps as well as how I used the stamps for card backgrounds.
