Clearly Inspired Challenge #31 - Dying to Punch it Out!

Die cuts, cut outs, and punches!!! Oh yeah!!! What a fantabulous challenge for me. I find it difficult these days to craft without using my Cricut. The Clearly Inspired Challenge for today is to incorporate die cuts, punches, or cut outs into your project.

The project I'm sharing with you today was actually started MONTHS ago ... yep, months. At that time, I was aiming for a pink, black, and white project. I had a lot of it done, but just couldn't find what I wanted for the center of the flower and couldn't finish off the project.

This challenge was perfect for this! :)

This easel card and the layers involved were cut using the Cricut and SCAL, but the center of the flower - with the little spidey on it - was cut using the Blooming Bouquet Dies from Clear Dollar Stamps. It finished this card off perfectly.

Card Recipe :
Stamps - Spider Greetings
Paper - Bubble Gum, white, black
Ink - white, black
Copics - RV04, RV06, C3
Accessories - Cricut, SCAL, Cuttlebug, folder, Blooming Bouquet dies, oval punches, ribbons, pop dots

Here are the details of our challenges....

-Challenges are now going to be on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month, and you'll have 2 weeks to finish each challenge.

-Challenges can use any stamps or digis from any company

-Only one entry per person per challenge

-Prizes will be given away after both challenges for the month. The number of prizes is determined by the number of participants for the month. For every 20 entries there will be a $10 gift certificate for stamps or digis up for grabs. (For example if over the entire month there were a total of 60 participants in both challenges, there will be 3 $10 gift certificates and 3 of the featured digital images to give away.)

-We will also be giving away the featured digi for every 20 entries!

Head right on over to Lori's blog and the
