A New Month and a New Theme over at Diecut Divas

Well here we are the 1st of Month again, and you know what that means, a whole challenge over at Diecut Divas. This month I got to choose the theme and I thought it was only appropriate to pick Birthdays - since this is my birthday month as well. For my inspiration project I decided to use one of FabrikaFantasy's pre-coloured images, and here it is:
Diecut Divas, FabrikaFantasy mightly wizard
Card Tip:
I have done partial diecuting on this image, leaving his wand out. To be perfectly honest; I have tried following tutorials on line and they never seem to work, this is how I did this:
1. Chose my die and stuck it down to my cardstock with painters tape.
2. place my C plate (I'm using a Cuttlebug) so that it stops just under the wand, die cut.
3. place the C plate so it covers just above the wand.
4. This should essentially leave you with a small area on both sides that still need to be cut, on the left hand side I took my scissors and very carefully continued the line, on the right side I carefully fussy cut the wand down to the die cut line.

Card Ingredients:
Card Stock: Kassazz pomegranate standard card base, Francheville white and black card stock.
Papers: Patterned paper from stash.
Stamps: FabrikaFantasy Mightly Wizard, sentiment created in Word.
Dies: Mpress covex square, mount created with Brother Scan and Cut, Mpress curved rectangle.
Other: Francheville gems, red bakers twine from stash, wink of stella clear glitter pen.

Christmas has Come Early at Diecut Divas

This month we are wanting either red or pink or your card over at Diecut Divas and today I am doing another set of multiple cards to show the flexibility of digital kits. This time I thought I would get a jump on my Christmas Cards. I post out atleast 50 christmas cards and I like to keep them to 1 layer to keep the postage costs down. This is what I created:
 






Card Tip:
With all of these cards I used a Versamark pen and different brand embossing powders over the top, some brands performed better than others (Ranger was the best). It was was impossible to get the lines exactly the same thickness so I did the original printing in grey so that it wouldn't show throw.  I also found that it was really important to use your anti static tool (mine is the one with the powder not the pillow) this made the embossing lines cleaner especially with the sentiment. I decided to stick these panels straight to the card so the warping from the heat tool didn't matter but if you wanted some height I would suggest a piece of foam behind to help keep your card stock straight.
Card Ingredients:
Card Stock: white card base 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", assorted Quill coloured card stock.
Stamps: Hero Arts Christmas Swirls Digital Kit, Free Christmas kit from Australian Simply Cards mag for sentiments.
Ink: Versamark ink pen, Judkins metallic silver, Rangers platinum embossing powder.
Dies: Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangles.
Other: Assorted gems and pearls from my stash.
