Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again with this month’s guest designer blog post. I created two baby cards for July´s post and had quite a pile of leftover die cut pieces. That gave me the idea to use the bits to create a multi-color die cut background and focal point for a fun children´s birthday card.
Hi, it’s Kelly Booth here today with a Colorful Balloon Card using A Way With Words dies. I love color and there is something so magical about watercolor to me. I thought the new Big Balloon die would be a perfect canvas for some fun color blending.
It’s Karen here. My mom’s birthday was at the beginning of March. I wanted to wait to post her card until I was sure she got it. My mom is the smartest, prettiest, most wonderful woman in the entire world. (I know a lot of you have moms like that!) I wanted to make her an extra special card for her birthday so I used the really cool Gift Wrapped stamps and coordinating dies along with the Butterfly Dreams paper. To jazz it up just a bit more, I added a pop-up to the inside. With the General Pop-Ups dies, it’s so EASY!
Hi Artlings! It’s Suzanne here today with a delicate birthday card. We always need birthday cards! Here’s one that’s a little different. By die cutting the Flourished Frame and inlaying all the pieces back in, we can create a more subtle frame that doesn’t overpower the pink and gray. Layer the elements to create more interest and you’ll be creating something really special for someone special!
Here is how you can make it –
It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cutting Design Team today. As most of you know, I love pop up cards and I was super excited when I found out that we were getting a set of general pop up dies to create all sorts of fun projects. I designed a birthday card card using the new General Pop Ups die set along with a couple of other new dies that are being released this month. I don’t know about you, but I can never make too many birthday cards.

Today’s project is a reusable sign to display on the table, mantel, or near the doorway at a birthday party! I picked bright, happy colors, but the color scheme is up to you. Go for school or team colors, a masculine or feminine palette, or something holiday-related. (If you pick shades of red, leave off the word ‘Birthday’ and use only ‘Party’ the sign is just right for Valentine’s Day and Christmas!) The optional easel folds flat for storage.
