Thanks

Our theme this month "Give Thanks"  and our sponsor is a2z Scrapbooking.  Did you know that a2z are the sole retailer for Hero Arts digital images.

Today I have used a Digital set called "Chalkboard Frames and Messages" to make my card


For my background I used Hero Arts Asian Flowers stencil with some HA pale purple and blue inks.   I printed and fussy cut the Thanks label.  My butterflies are from an older Hero Arts stamp and die set.  I used Copic markers to colour them.   My card base was made with a Catherine Pooler Designs die.

Do come and join us with your cards of Thanks.

You Always Need Thank You Cards




Die Cut Divas is being sponsored by A2Z Scrapbooking and I have a Winter Thank You card for you.

I had some post cards stamped up with an old Hero Arts envelope stamp and it was in a perfect color for making a Winter Thank You card.  I adhered the postcard to a white card, added Nuvo Crystal Drops Red Berry to the heart, colored the trees with Copic markers, added Clear Wink of Stella and that die cut arrow to the card.  

You really are going to want to pick up that Nuvo Red Berry Crystal Drops at A2Z for Xmas cards.

An A2Z Scrapbooking Month for November

We will be introducing a new member of the Die Cut Divas later this month.  Stay tuned.

Its time for a new challenge and none other than A2Z Scrapbooking is the Die Cut Divas' sponsor this month.



 The A2Z Scrapbooking store carries a wide variety of Hero Arts products! Get discounted new releases, sales, grab bags and more. Proceeds from the A2Z Scrapbooking store benefit Celiac and Behcets disease foundations.   If you’re looking for a Hero Arts product you don't see in store, use the Request Custom Order button from with-in the shop.

November for some of our followers means Thanksgiving so our theme this month is all things thankful. This could be a scrapbook page showing us what your thankful for, thanksgiving gifts or thank you cards.

Like most card makers I do like to make cards for the individual person and the individual purpose but sometimes it's good to have some spare cards to use at short notice. With this in mind using the digital stamp Hero Arts Sunshine Flowers I created some thank you cards.

 
to see more details about the individual cards head over to my blog House of Borowski.

Arlene wanted to create a background as a major focus and she did.


Arlene did another card in a different color combo and shows us closeups at A Bit of This and That.

Michelle loves the Chalkboard Frames and butterflies-




Until next time have a great day!!!

MOOD BOARD and Bugaboo Stamps

Today is the last day for our October challenge. A huge thank you for our wonderful sponsor Bugaboo! We hope you were inspired by the mood board and had fun playing along. We've enjoyed seeing your creations!

A huge Thank You to Monica for being a joy of a DT member.  Monica is retiring from the DT staff and today is her last day to publish.  We will all miss her very much.

Here is a look at the DT's last cards inspired by the mood board!
Arlene was surprised at how much she liked the background on this card because sometimes you have something in mind and it doesn't turn out the way you want.  This did.  Happy Day.

Michelle decided to make a shaker card with the same image as Arlene-

Monika using CLYDE SPRING,I made a multi-layer card.





Monica used a cute kitty to wish everyone a Happy Halloween




Cathie used Girlz Autumn Blessings in a lovely teenager birthday card.

Remember to head back to the blog tomorrow to see our brand new theme, our brand new challenge and a brand new sponsor for November.
Until then have a great day!!!

Trick or Treat



Dawn here to share my "Falloween" card  - inspired by the mood board above.


I've used a Bugaboo image and once I printed it, I used a rectangle die to so some partial die cutting.   I cut my scalloped piece with a Catherine Pooler die.   The sentiment was typed in Word and trimmed to fit the panel.

Do come and join us this month.  Just a few days left.

From Graveyard to Globe

I just had too much fun with the MOOD BOARD and Bugaboo Stamps that I kept making cards.  I am going to have to watch that.





I think the color combo worked so well for the creepy zombie scene.  It was so much fun, really, just making fun changes from color to color.



Using the same color combo, this globe card turned out so very pretty.

Close-up 

I cut the butterflies from the globe (I cropped the butterflies so I didn't waste paper) and colored them as well as parts of the inside of the globe in light blue-green. (BG0000)  Some Nuvo Crystal Drops complete the scene

Supplies for Zombie scene:
Bugaboo Digital stamps - Scene it - Mummy Scene
Elizabeth Craft Designs Dies
Nuvo Crystal Drops -Ripened Pumpkin and Ebony Black
Copic markers
Vagabond Die Cut machine

Supplies for Globe
Bugaboo Digital stamps - Butterfly Globe
Spellbinders dies
Copic markers
Nuvo Crystal Drops - Crushed Grape and Ebony Black

Autumn Leaves


The challenge this month is brought to you by our wonderful sponsor Bugaboo




This month we are challenging you to create something inspired by this mood board! You don't have to use all the colors, but the inspiration should be noticeable on your creation! 


 

Here is my project-


I decided to use the orange, yellow and green of the mood board to make my fall themed card. I really like how the ink on the embossing folder filled in around the embossed leaves. I just love how colorful it is!

For more information on this card, you can visit me here.
