Fairy Centerpiece

 Hi there!
I'm sharing a DIY project today on the

If you know a little girl that would like a fairy themed birthday party this project would be perfect for a centerpiece. I created 5 wands and arranged in the container. The wands could even be given as party favors!

I die cut 4 fairies, 4 scalloped circles and 5 regular circles and punched 10 1 inch circles using the metallic card stocks.

I picked out 2 printed papers from my stash that coordinated with the metallic card stocks. From the printed papers I cut 10 strips 12 x 1 5/8 inches. These strips were scored along the 12 inch edge every 1/2 inch and accordion folded.

I created rosettes with the scored strips by attaching 2 strips into a circle and adhering to the punched circles.

I attached the rosettes to the scalloped die cut circles and I adhered the regular die cut circles to the top of the rosettes. These layered pieces were then attached to a small wood dowel, which painted silver.

I added the fairy die cuts next with foam squares.

Now I need a container to hold the wands so I chose a popcorn jar and decided I would cover it with 2 pieces of silver tissue paper.

I placed the jar in the center of the 2 pieces of tissue paper and brought the ends up to the mouth of the jar and tied with a piece of tulle. I added 3 pieces of floral foam to the inside of the jar to hold the wands.

I put together a 5th wand with a "Happy Birthday" die cut. I used some BASIS BLACK 80LB CARDSTOCK with the metallic card stock and one of the printed papers. I arranged the wands in the container and decided to add ribbon and tulle to the tallest wand. I also added some tulle over the opening of the container to mask the floral foam and my centerpiece is complete.

I hope I’ve inspired you with this project! If so, please leave a comment below, and we would love for you to connect with us on our Facebook Page.

Christmas Bells Card

 Hey there!
Today I'm on the
 with a Christmas card project using dies from

I've made quite a few Christmas cards this year and
it is easy to create something pretty quickly with die cuts.

I gathered:

Silver Metallic Card
Silver Glitter Card
Navy Blue with Silver Polka Dots Card
White Card Stock 

I chose dies from 3 die sets:

I die cutting the glitter and printed card

I wanted to add a little color to some of the die cuts
so I pulled out alcohol markers and colored.
The glitter card I used colors up really well.
This is much easier and quicker than cutting the die cuts
several times and piecing together, which is always an option.

Next, I adhered a 5.5 x 5.5 inch piece of glitter card,
a 5.25 x 5.25 inch piece of silver metallic card  
and the printed die cut piece of paper
to the 5.5 x 5.5 inch card base I made with the white card stock.

Start adding your other die cut pieces

And you're done!

I hope I've provided some inspiration for you to
 play and create with your dies and we'd love for you 
to come and join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog. 

There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store. 
For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Beccy's Place Home for the Holidays

This time around I have 2 projects I created for

When you purchase this digital set you will receive a zip file containing:

I colored both of the digis for my cards with Prismacolor Premier Pencils.

I did some embossing and lightly sanded on the first card.
The second card was created by die cutting an ornament shape.
Both of the images were fussy cut and adhered to the cards with foam tape
for a little dimension.
