Die-Version Dies - a Couple of Cards

amI am having some fun with the Die-Versions Dies! I made another card - a baby boy card using the Personalize-It Bib (found here) Die-Versions Die.

On the sister site of, sells sheets of all-wool felt (go here). The dies cut beautifully through it, leaving gorgeous, crisp edges. I cut the bib out of the baby blue felt, mounted the felt bib on white cardstock, and glued that on the striped patterned paper. I glued 3 white buttons on the bottom right of the bib, bow-tied a ribbon and a button which I glued at the top of the bib. I used the Maxi Micro alphabet - just a 1/4" tall (which you can find here) to spell the word "congratulations" and glued it in the middle of the felt bib.

I cut the die out of red cardstock, then I cut just the top of the die in green and used just the green leaves and glued them on each apple. I used the Maxi Micro font to cut out the letters in white; glued them in the middle of the frame and added a white bow near the top. Cute and easy.

Been busy at the hospital

While my husband continues to wait for a heart transplant in the hospital, I cart all my "stuff" to his hospital room and die-cut to my heart's content. He needs a BIGGER hospital room - I can't seem to have enough room for all my papers, die-cuts, cards, and STUFF! This is Eric's 3rd week on the balloon pump. Please pray for him to get a new heart... and soon!

Anyway, I created a few cards with my new Die-Versions dies. First up is a thank-you card:
I used two Die-Versions dies on this card: from the Whispers collection, I used the Lucky Scallop die (the lacey, scalloped doily above). You can find this die here (scroll down to the bottom of the page on the right side). I also used the die: Compliments - Everyday. I LOVE the Compliments - Everyday die - cuts out these beautiful sentiments like "thank you", "congratulations", "miss you", etc.

That brings me to the next card! I used the Fleur-de-Lis die (find it here) using white cardstock; the sentiment "miss you" came from the same die as the "thank you" in the above card: the Compliments - Everyday die. You can find this die here.

These dies cut out this beautiful detail. I am so impressed with the quality of this dies - yes! they are made in the USA. What could be better than that? And there are so many uses for them. I can't wait to make a few layouts with them in the coming weeks and month.

Thanks for visiting my little blog today! Have a GREAT day!
