Die-Namics Office Supplies Dies

Besides whiskers on kittens and raindrops on roses the set of My Favorite Things Die-namics Office Supplies dies by Laina Lamb is one of my new favorite things! Ask me to whip a card for my girlfriend, no problem, but ask me to make a masculine card and it can be quite a challenge. Not any more! 




I totally love this set! I mean, how cute is this clipboard?!?! And Laina's 3x4 Notehbook Paper die fits it perfectly. For those little paper clips...use metallic paper to die cut them and they will  look real. For additional accents, to go along with the office theme, I included a little black rubber band along with a couple 'Post-It' notes created with plain yellow paper.

This next card showcases a manila envelope you can create with this set. It's so realistic looking with its top and bottom flaps, the crease down the center and the tiny circles dies you can use to make a string enclosure. I thought of another way to close the envelope...a brad placed through the back, just like a real envelope, right? 



The At the Office stamp set includes some pretty cool ways to accent these dies and add sentiments. My favorites have to be the marker squiggles! Doesn't that arrow look like it was added with a marker? 




I'll be back again tomorrow to show you some more of My Favorite Things Laina Lamb die designs which will include another card using the Office Supplies dies.

Monday Morning Challenge

Hello! It's another Monday and Bella Blvd. is challenging its designers and you to create a project using six of the border cut pieces! This can be quite a challenge to fit all six strips on an A2 size card, but here's what I came up with. 





For this first card, I simply found six borders printed together from the Molly collection that I thought would make the perfect background for a girly girl kind of card. Flowers, cameras, polka dots, cupcakes, peace signs and stars make a super cool background, don't you think?

Next up...I got a little more creative this time around and used pennant and circle dies to cut out words and icons from the borders strips of the Classic Calendars collection for this 'love' card.




Whatever the day, month or season, love endures!

Reverse Confetti - July Color Challenge

Hey 'fetti fans! It's time for the second installment of Reverse Confetti's July Color Challenge and these shades are too yummy not to try! I immediately thought of our latest Fabulous Flamingos set when I saw the coral color in this trio...perfect right? And the aqua shade could mean our flamingo friend gets to enjoy a little time cooling off in the water! 



(Buy Now - $4.99)

I love using the new Perfect Paisley dies as water splashes and I added some Glossy Accents drops to give them more of a 'wet' look. 

To see what my talented teammates created for the challenge, visit Reverse Confetti's blog, here. Enjoy!
