Tonight I am showcasing the fantastic new Centerpieces Framed Lovebirds Die-namics.  I love this new Die-namics and once I started working with it, it was difficult to stop :)  I have 3 cards to share tonight.  Here is my first card.




This Die-namics measures 4" x 2-3/4". I cut it out of Kraft card stock, which had been stamped with the Woodgrain Background in Kraft ink.  I then cut the Framed Lovebirds into a frame using the Rectangles STAX Die-namics set 1.  I also cut a piece of Sno Cone card stock using the same Rectangles STAX Die-namics.  This rectangle was stamped with the Patterned Triangles Background in Sno Cone ink.  I embellished the Centerpieces Framed Lovebirds with Spearmint leaves, Smooth White birds, and a Wild Cherry heart (cut from the Staggered Heart Border Die-namics).  I glued the entire piece to the Patterned Triangles stamped rectangle and layered over a Sno Cone Pierced Rectangle with foam boosters.  The layout I used for this card is this week's Mojo Monday sketch, #327.


The sentiment is from Mona Pendleton Designs Distressed Hearts.  I curved it to fit on one of the Dimensional Banners and stamped in Chocolate Brown ink.  The adorable doily is part of the Free with $60 set- this month a Die-namics (insert happy dance), the Mini Delicate Doilies.  The card front is Kraft and Insulation Pink stamped with the Woodgrain Background and glued to an Insulation Pink card front.


My next card is a bit simpler.  I cut a piece of Kraft card stock to 4" x 5-1/4" and die cut the Centerpieces Framed Lovebirds from the center.



I backed the Centerpieces Framed Lovebirds with a piece of Smooth White card stock stamped with the "XOXOXOXO" phrase and a sentiment from MPD Distressed Hearts. I added the Jellybean Green leaves but left them unglued so I could bend them up a bit for some dimension.


The heart was cut from the Staggered Heart Border Die-namics and embellished with a couple enamel dots.  I tied some hemp cord around the frame and layered the entire thing on a Wild Cherry panel with foam boosters.


Here is my final card for tonight's post.



I used the Centerpieces Framed Lovebirds to emboss a piece of Primitive White card stock.  I use a Vagabond for die cutting.  I remove the wafer thin adapter plate and add an embossing pad to my sandwich to use Die-namics for embossing.  I glued the leaves, birds, and a tiny heart cut using Blueprints 11 Die-namics.  The sentiment was cut using the new Lots of Love Die-namics and adhered to the frame and over the image using tiny foam dots.


I framed the Centerpieces Lovebirds image with a Kraft frame cut using the Chalkboard Frame Builder Die-namics and stamped with the Woodgrain Background stamp set in Kraft ink.
