Stretch your dies- DT post

Crafty friends..

Here I am with my detailed for this month on peek-a-boo blog. I made these 3 cards using one die as focal element. Last week was bit hard for me as I was not at all in creative mood. Hope I did justice with my supply.

Card #1

This is somewhat simple card. When I loose my MOJO I make simple monochrome cards. They boost my confidence a bit, as I need not to make any colour combination.

* Its a topfolding 7x5" landscape card.
* I took another panel, ran through an embossing folder.
* I die cut leaves and panel for the sentiment ( I used small scalloped rectangle die partially to make smaller panel which can fit my sentiment).
* Heat embossed the sentiment (Partial stamping) and edges of embossed panel, leaves and scalloped rectangle with gold embossing powder (I have fallen in love with this embossing powder).
* The embossed panel is mounted on card base with foam sheet, glued scalloped rectangle flat with liquid glue and sentiment panel with foam tape. Then glued leaves beneath rectangle frame.

Here is the card

Card #2

* I die cut several leaves from white CS.
* Blended distress inks on another panel and spritz with pearlised on the panel.
* Glued all leaves on the panel randomly to fill the area and trimmed the edges.
* Die cut the sentiment with metallic CS.
* Glued the panel on the top folding 5x7" card base and the sentiment strip.
* Added few sequins.

Card #3

This is my last card for the day.
I had never heard of dream catcher. But few days back had seen so many posts on FB about it. So thats the inspiration for my next card.
* I used Scalloped circle die and die cut twice. Except the outed scalloped circle i glued other diecuts on top of each other.
* Stamped the sentiment and heat embossed.
* Then stacked 3 die cuts on each other to make the hangings.
* I glued the circles first on each other, then tied leaves with green embroidery floss and glued another end beneath the last circle.
* Added few green sequins.
