Friday's challenge...
Impressive, To Die For Tips & Tricks!

Monday's challenge...


Did you all have a great weekend?  It was pretty quiet around here, which was good since I'm feeling a little under the weather.  Just a nasty spring cold with a nagging cough that's keeping me up at night.  ugh! 

But, anyway, I hope you've been having fun creating!  I have one last diecut challenge for you!  Today's challenge is to create a shaped card using a diecut as a base. 

Here is a sweet little bunny turned into a shaped card.  I used my Gypsy to weld them together and cut as one piece, but if you don't have software for your machine, you could put a little adhesive at the top, or stitch them together.


And your card doesn't necessarily have to be an object...I could be just a pretty shape.  Like this card where I used a Nestie label as the base... I put a little adhesive on the left edges and adhered them together.  You could also stitch them.


Here are a few more ideas for shaped cards...

This cloud shaped card was published in the Mar/Apr 2009 issue of Paper Crafts.

Have a Beautiful Day

This cute popsicle was also published in a 2009 Paper Crafts issue...

Have a sweet summer card

And, this one was never published, but still kinda fun for an "I forgot your birthday" kinda card....


Well, what do you say?  Wanna play along?  Deadline for all of my diecut challenges is Tuesday night at midnight.  If you play along with any of the challenges, just leave a comment on the appropriate post!  I'm going to be checking out all of your projects in a bit!!  Can't wait to see what you've created.
