Harvest Wreath - DoveArt Studios

Welcome back!

The Creative Basics Dies by Rhea design team is showing off our work this week at Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook page and the Passionate Paper Creations blog.  We have made some wonderful cards to share with you to give lots of ideas on how to use these dies in different ways.

Today I created an easel card using three different die sets in Rhea's new release.

I started with a piece of 6 inch x 12 inch card stock.  I scored the card stock at 3 inches and 6 inches to create the card folds.  I then used the largest Half Double Stitched Circles die at the 3 inch line to create the popup for the easel card.

For my stamp I chose the beautiful Harvest Wreath from DoveArt Studios which is available at C.C. Designs.  I used the largest Double Stitched Circles die to frame my wreath.  The largest circle coordinates with the largest half circle.  The wreath fits perfectly within this circle.

For my sentiment I used the Fancy Rectangle Build A Card Die Set for the frame and the beautiful leaf.

Picture from the side so you can see how it easels.  The popped up sentiment die frame helps to hold the easel open so it stays in one place.

Here are the Copic Markers I used to color the wreath:

Raspberries: RV63, RV66, RV69
Grapes: YG03, YG05, YG07
Holly Berries: R24, R27, R29, R89
Small Berries: R11, R12
Leaves: YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99, G24, G28, G29, E19

You can find the full release of Creative Basics Dies by Rhea through C.C. Designs.

I really enjoyed making this card because I have never made an easel card before.  I am very happy with the way it came out.  Hope you enjoy!

Creative Basics Dies by Rhea

Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest!

Today I am going to show you a card I created using dies, card stock and a pen.  

Rhea Weigand just released 5 new dies through C.C. Designs called Creative Basics Dies By Rhea.  These dies are amazing!!  All of the dies have a purple coating for easy release.  This is especially important for the wonderful leaves I used on my card because they have such a delicate stem but with the coating I had no issues.

Do you like to doodle or tangle?  I do!  When I saw the Perfectly Layered Dotted Daisies I knew I wanted to tangle on them.  After cutting out the Daisies on white card stock I used my pen to draw different patterns on each flower.  There is so many different options that you can try.  I did mine in black and white but you can always add color.

Simple card to execute with a great impact.

I colored the image Summer Dreams and she is really stunning.  I just love this image and it can be used for so many different kinds of cards.

I also used my Creative Basics Dies.  I started with the Fancy Rectangles & Layers Dies to frame my image.  I then created beautiful flowers with the dies in the Allifair Build-A-Card Die Set.  I just cut the flowers out in different colors and layered them on top of one another and added a little bling to the middle.  I really love how they came out and they were so simple to make.

Here are the Copic Markers I used to color the image:

Skin: E50, E51, E11, E21, E04
Hair: E13, E15, E19, E18
