You can find the ways to win this wonderful prize on the Die Cut Diva Blog!

Now... Are you ready to see my variety of projects? I hope you like them! I had soooo much fun creating them!

To start my ensembles off, I used the adorable diaper card and baby pin. I used the cute Zoo Animals stamp set from Stampin' Up and some nice baby pastel color inks (apricot, celery and bashful blue) added a few buttons and some faux stitching and WAH LAH!










Next, I have the Sweet Baby Shoes. These would make delightful party favors. Just put some mints or candy in a plastic pouch and tie a little ribbon and you are ready to go! For the Blue Baby Shoecut in the Stardream Metallics so it has a bit of *sparkle*
 I sponged White Craft Ink along the toe and used a White Gel Pen to add the stitching and a white bow and brad and there you have a QUICK, ADORABLE table decoration or party favor!




For this sweet Girl Baby Shoe, cut in the Stardream Metallics so it has a bit of *sparkle*. I added some lace, a cute flower brad and some pearl gems. Be sure to grab some Killer Red Tacky Tape to hold your projects together!


Ohhh... Can you hear the wedding bells ringing?
This next die cut that I am showing you is the Dress Window Square Scallop Card  wouldn't this make a gorgeous Bridal Shower Invitation or Thank You?

To create this card, I ran the card through my Big Shot using my Impressabilities by Spellbinders. I added the Dress #1 Small in Tacky Tape  to a white piece of card stock and some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. Tied a bow and used a wedding stamp set from Stampin' Up! and added 3 sweet tiny pearl gems to the side of the dress.




I believe these next die cuts to be the perfect addition to any Bridal Shower! You could even use these for small token gifts for the wedding party!

The Dress and Tuxedo Box are VERY easy to assemble and you can make them as simple or extravagant as you wish! You can choose the colors to match your wedding party's formal wear too! You can get these great die cuts in a set or individual!





This handsome Tuxedo Box makes a great gift wrapping for any masculine type party. At
2” wide x 4-1/4” high x 1-3/4” deep this box would hold a variety of treasures for your gifting pleasure! To decorate this box was another Fast and Fun project. I used the pearl gems, the triple flower punch and the bow tie came along with the die cut as well as the shirt! Best of all, you get to choose the color of the shirt!




For the Dress BoxI ran the card through my Big Shot using my Impressabilities by Spellbinders, used Blush cardstock from Terry and made a small bust line adding pearl and pink gems. I tied a small organdy ribbon around the waist and using my triple flower punch, I used light pink to add a flower and embellished with more pearl gems.






One more GREAT thing about Terry's NEW website is she has ALL of the Color Swatches there. She even currently offers Stampin' Up! colors renamed in all of her Die Cuts! So if you love SU colors, these Die Cuts will work WONDERFUL and save you lots of time on your projects as well! You can see her wide range of colors HERE. This particular link does not include the color tabs for the renamed SU colors, but when choosing your dies you can find them with a new but similar name.

Terry offers a GREAT price on the Killer Red Tacky Tape  in a great variety of widths too!

Now...enough of my yapping. You have gone through the entire list of hoppers, you will definitely want to head back to the Die Cut Diva Blog to sign up for your chance to win! If by chance you need a peek at the list to see all of the creators and their blogs you can see them here...

Thank you for stopping by and commenting! Have a great day!
