Folder Cards using Envelope Die

Hey guys!

Spardha here from The Lazy Owl Designs taking over the DCAM blog today to share some card-making inspiration. I hope you guys enjoyed our tutorial for gift boxes using DCAM Envelope Die.

Here is another way of using the Split Long Envelope Die and create beautiful square cards.
Use your die-cutting machine to cut two rectangles using the dies and remove their side-flaps. Cut the rectangle in half.

I sketched out a quick stencil for you guys to follow, in case of confusion.

Now all you have to do is layer the two cards and paste them together. And you are ready to decorate!
I used the wood-grain embossing die with some brown ink to create a letterpress-impression. And of course, ended up using a LOT of my go-to critter sheets!

I cannot stress on this enough, there are SO many ways you can use these envelope dies and I am still playing around with them!

Hope you guys had fun following this post and share your own projects with us soon :)

Gift envelopes for the little ones!

Hello to all!
Good day!

I am very busy these days as some constructions work started at my house.  And while a bit of free time appeared I had to manage everything planned and conceived.
The children's topic caught me a little and it turned out to set of two envelopes for a baby boy and a baby girl! 
 In love with cute Beary images so decided to make a set of two envelopes!

For a boy

Firstly die cut an envelope in baby blue. 

Die cut a white panel, using 3 D hexagon stencil created this beautiful design using DI as shown in the picture.

Have you seen the magic of Tinsel Dust glitter? I applied some texture paste through my stencil and before drying quickly applied this dust. It looks so fabulous with all silver shimmer and textured flakes, love the result:)

Then decorated this panel with a cute beary image with some toys, border & scalloped circle dies in silver, a pretty flower and bold baby chiplet in black!

For a girl 

I used arrow stencil for this.  And applied the same technique, I used for Boy panel envelope.

Hugs and Smiles!

Happy weekend!

Have a mice day!

Hello DCAM fans!
Happy Friday!

It's too hot in Delhi, so I am presenting a sweet creation in shades of soothing blue to chill the day!

I created a very sweet card using a cute mice image playing with a balloon. I fussy cut the image and applied matching distress ink at the edges. For the focus on the image, I randomly applied some DO inks on my sheet and swiped away my die cut scallop rectangle panel along with a frame.
Added so many layers of cardstocks and PP. And the cloud print PP fit so well with this cute mice image I die cut a tag with circles print!

Finished it with some enamel shapes and a sentiment label. And added some bold die cut letters Enjoy in black!

Wishing you a very nice(mice) day!
Will come back soon!

Happy crafting!

Gift Box with DCAM Envelope Die!

Hey guys!

Spardha here today from The Lazy Owl Designs with a super fun tutorial to share with you.
As you know, DCAM just launched a whole bunch of wonderful designs for dies. My personal favourite is the Split Long Envelope Die because it is SO versatile!

Here's how to easily make a gift box using this cool die set.
Tip: If you have a smaller machine and a bigger die, I have demonstrated a way around it :)
Here's the video tutorial:

Once the box is done, you can decorate it however you like. Although I was, of course, inclined to use the rest of the set to add some texture to the box.

And the chiplets, forever my favourite, were the perfect fit for the theme of the box! <3

I hope you're inspired to use the die-set and don't forget to share your projects with us!

Football Buddy

Hello DCAM friends!
Happy Wednesday!

Hoping you all are enjoying your day!

I just love this cute little football buddy when I received this critter sheet in my DT Kit and such fun putting this card together.
Check out the concentration on his little face, so cute!

I've always found boys cards such a tough challenge but these images are just stinkin' cute and made my work easy. And boys cards forced me out of my color comfort zone, it's rare that I use cherry red now, isn't it!

Firstly, I created my own background for this cute guy using Hexagon stencil in bright colors to match my playing fun scene.

Then I hand cut all those images from the critter sheet. Created a fun playground, added some movement to the football and placed my images with some shadow touch on an Inverted stitched scalloped white panel along with stitched circle scalloped frame.

Stamped the cool sentiment in jet black ink, fussy cut it. Die cut a fence and created this whole fun scene with bold hooray chiplet sentiment and some buttons with coloured twine!

Happy crafting!

Hello crafters!

I am showcasing a new royal envelope topper die release which is so fancy, versatile with so many possibilities. I wanted to make something wedding side with summer mood)  Flowers too.
So I flipped through die templates laying on the table and came up with this combination set.

This die worked wonderfully as an edge or side borders, creating backgrounds, you name it! This die really can produce all the looks you want to add your creations!

I added some foam flowers to these beauties. Embellished with some adhesive half pearls. Here are some close-up pics:
