I have become slightly obsessed with cutting dies. Although I have several die cutting machines, I am having fun discovering the many different dies that are out there. This card measures 6 x 8 inches and is one of the largest cards I have ever made.
I also used the Envelope Punch Board to create a coordinating envelope.

I absolutely adore the new die set that I purchased called Mariposa. There are three different packs of dies that can be used alone or combined with one another to produce endless styles and designs.
This is the first card that I created to see how the dies would cut. I used my Cuttlebug and this particular set cut beautifully. However, some of the dies in the set are quite large. In fact, they are so large that it would be better to use this with the Grand Calibur by Spellbinders or one of the Big Shots by Sizzix.
I am calling this my slim card. It measures 6 x 3 inches.
This month is the first month that I joined the Stamps of
Life Card Kit Club. And I must say that I love it. The kit is packed with just
about everything you will need to make several cute cards. This month’s theme
I made a few changes to the sample card idea that was
included in the kit. I added an extra layer to the birthday card that I made.

Here is a cute Valentine's Day card I made. I just loved how this turned out. I recently started using Dies sets from Stephanie Barnard at Stamps of Life. Everything coordinates and with each other which is a definite plus...

Thanks for stopping by and check back for more cards.
I know Christmas has just passed but I really want to build up my collection of Christmas cards. I don't want to wait until the last minute to start making them. So, I will be posting Christmas cards that I have made.
Here are two quick and easy cards you can make in less that 10 minutes. The first card was created using the Christmas Kitsch cartridge by Anna Griffin.
This next card was created using the Holiday Cards #19. The cards in that collection a perfect for the beginner or non-crafter. It will cut out the base (this cuts out the image on the front of the card) and the backing piece. Fold in half and you are done. I will be posting more of these in the weeks to come.
