Some inspiration from our fabulous DT
For this challenge I wanted to create a card only using dies and punches. Normally my cards all have at least a stamped image, so that was a real challenge for me, but I do like the result very much ;o)
I am trying to build up my collection of birthday cards so that was what I decided to do for this challenge. The dies I've used are all by Spellbinders. Hope you enjoy looking, Angela x
I used a new die my hubby bought for me for Christmas and backed it with a Spellbinders die. Sentiment is also die cut.
I created the greeting in Photoshop Elements and used Spellbinders dies to cut that and the mat, and then I die cut pieces for the flowers using a variety of dies from Sizzix and Cheery Lynn.
I have used various dies from Tattered Lace as well as one of their CD ROMs to make this card.
I used a stencil and modelling paste for the background of my card then splattered the background with Brusho. The die cut leaves were run through an embossing folder and then painted with blue and silver paint. To complete my card I added some small gems and sequins after I arranged my die cuts.
I've used a tattered lace die for the card base, mats and layers and flowers, and some tonic punches for additional flowers.
I have used just a combination of dies on my card, details on my blog
I have chosen to use some Sue Wilson dies for my card.
I used the dies to create my own embossing folder as well as the floral embellishment.
I have combined some flower dies and a heart shaped die from Marianne Designs with some papers from Craftwork Cards.

This cute little image is 'Lil Girl Prayin' by Phyllis Harris. For the challenge I have used a lattice die, prayers die, Spellbinders circle die and flower punch.
I have used an Inkylicious Stamp heat embossed it and a Spellbinders Oval Die.
