Die Cut Dreams

Oooh I've had lots of fun with this one! I saw that Die Cut Dreams Challenge blog have a DT call on and are asking us to create something with a pink theme. Susie and Vikki have been running their blog for three months now and have decided it's time to extend their existing DT. Take a look at the blog and the DT blogs too, they are all brilliant. I'll cross my fingers for a DT spot too!

This is my entry:

I decided to challenge myself further and combine this with challenges from Copic Creations - 'pink, red and hearts', Secret Crafter - 'flights of fancy' and I took the fab sketch from Sketch and Stash.

RV29, R27, R59, R02, RV02, RV21, RV23, E00, E21, E51, E33, E35, E37

Found the red and pink Copics a real challenge as I don't think I have enough shades to get the red blending right, although I had a look at the fab tutorial link on the blog! My new stash item used is the Heidi in the flowers stamp from C C Designs - she has wings so fits the flights of fancy challenge!

The beautiful heart papers are digi downloads from Pink Petticoat, layered up with Coredinations card stock.The pink flowers are Funky Flowers 'Just Pots', I trimmed one of them down with curved scissors as it looked too big and out of balance. I punched matching flowers and popped Doodlebug sugar coated brads through them. Much 3-D foam tape later and I'm done.

Got to go and swap with hubby now, he's been looking after the boys whilst I craft and now he needs to go and clean his work van before anyone else writes sarcastic quips in the dirt streaks!



  1. Gorgeous card, lovely design and combination of elements. Best of luck with the DT call, your cards are fantastic, so they should certainly be after you for their team :)
