Flower Gift Box with Die Cuttin' Divas

This week at Die Cuttin' Divas we are having fun with 3D projects. We want to see your 3D purses, bags or boxes. I wasn't sure what I wanted to make for this challenge but once I went looking at my different box cuts I got inspired.
I found papers that I liked and wanted to work with and cut the box out of a simple pattern. 
Once it was all put together, I layered some pattered shapes to the top and sides.  I cut out the brown flowers to coordinate with the colors of my papers and added some gem like brads to finish them off.
I was very pleased with the final look.  Not sure what I will use this for, but I have a feeling it will be a great gift box once I do figure it out. Have a great week and come play along with us at Die Cuttin' Divas.

Rainbow of Thanks

Top of the Morning to you all.  As we get ready for St. Patty's Day later this week, the divas at Die Cuttin' Divas want to see your rainbow projects!! 
I needed to add Thank you cards to my card stash  so I decided to go that route for my card this week. I wanted a fun rainbow so I decided to make a washi-tape.
I was super happy that I had polka dot washi in all the right colors so I went with that on this very pale blue paper. To add my die cuts I made a happy cloud and gave him some swirl embossing. 
A cute thank you card ready for the next time I need one.  Hope you have a great week and get a chance to play along with us at Die Cuttin' Divas.

Oh Say Can You See ... March Sketch

It is time for another Tuesday challenge with Die Cuttin' Divas.  It is the first week of the month and that means a new sketch for us to play with.
I used the sketch to make a quick card for my daughter.  It is competition season again for the dance team and the new dances are wonderful and performing well. This past weekend the lyrical number, to the National Anthem took 4th overall in their division. I wanted a quick card to tell her I was so proud of her work on this number.
I started with the dancer image - I feel like I use these so often that I need to try and mix it up a bit so I selected one with a frame and added a shadow behind.
All the other pieces of the sketch were added with washi-tape, brads and a hand-written sentiment to show how proud. I made it pretty quickly but  am happy with the simple results. Here is my dancer in this number!!
I hope you have a wonderful week and get a chance to play along with our sketch challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas.
