Die cut challenge
























This is my forth week as guest designer for The Daring Cardmakers  and this weeks challenge has been set by Keryn. The challenge is "Die Cuts"

It's Keryn here this week and I've been lucky enough to get my hands on a 'Big Shot' die cut machine and I'm loving it. I want any excuse I can find to make cards, well anything really using die cuts. This week I want you to play with me. Dig out your dies and your die cut machine. Cut shapes of any size and theme you please and use at least one on your card for this week.


This week their is a small prize of a Stampin' Up!® little leaves Sizzlit die so please check out the blog and have a go!!

This is the card I have made, sorry about the photograph not my best, the petals of the daisy's are distressed with Worn Lipstick distress ink but they just seem to look a dirty brown colour.  I have added some yellow glitter to the daisy centres.

Lucky me as its a five week month I have one more week to go as the guest designer!

Supplies: Daisy Die by Quickutz.  Swirl by Sizzix. Square by Spellbinders.

This is just so pretty and spring-like Sally. Love your background and the placement of those sweet pearls. The flowers look great and really stand out because of your subtle distressing. I find worn lipstick is a difficult colour to work with as it is so brown for a pinky shade, but please don't think the flowers look dirty as they really do not! Jo x

This is so pretty, Sally! Love the daisies against the flourish/stem and the faint writing on the Nestie scallop square. And that red checked ribbon is perfect! Glad you are enjoying your DT spot!
